Mouse VS Elephant

Consider this...
These boys are both players in the Under Nine age division and it is entirely possible that Finn is actually older than the Monstrous Number 34. But here is the thing...
Each and every time Finn encountered 34 on the field this afternoon he won the ball. At one point Finn dug in so hard 34 fell over and landed right on top of him. Finn looked like a squashed bug and everyone on the sideline let out a huge gasp...visually it was very disturbing. The whistle blew and the ref called the foul on Finn; he was outraged.
The lesson?
When an elephant sits on a mouse...blame the mouse. Next time the mouse will just scurry faster!
Finn was fearless on the field today and it was a just a joy to watch him play!

Oh dear Lord. Yey Finn for being tough! It saddens me to see such large kids. Being that large will definitely slow you down. As I always say obesity starts and ends at home...don't get me started with the no sweets at school. At least the large boy is playing a sport so there is always hope

I like the metaphor! I've seen it before on other teams. It just amazes me. Nice job Finn!
