The 12th Ball

Explaining Football

A few years ago, when my now-7-year-old nephew was just 4 years old, we watched football one weekend.  I tried to explain the game to him.  At the end of the weekend, he explained football to me:

"Bad choices.  Good choices.  Watch the flag!"

Just yesterday, his brother - who coincidentally is now 4 years old - also explained football to me:

"You kick the ball and then you kick it again and again, and then you win.  To get the trophy."

And there it is.  What else is there to know?
