Neither here nor there…

Sorry I am still raving about the football…

More posts on Cheerleading and hotdogs soon to come. There was just too much to the experience to write in one single post..
So please bear with me.

One of the strangest moments in yesterdays match was the moment when one of the players from Yale got seriously injured.
I think he got a pretty hard knock on the side of the head.
So the game was suspended for quite a while to tend to his  injury.

I was quite surprised to see the courtesy of these bulky players. Apparently it is the custom for all players on both sides to kneel during the time-out for an injury.
It delivered this strange almost religious picture:

Chivalry on the field.

If you compare it to the earlier video clip and full dynamics of players dashing around the field, you can imagine the paradox…
In the end the player was rolled off the field tightly stabilised on a stretcher.

Poor guy, let’s hope he will be ok and back at molecular physics soon again…
