Last week, I mentioned a little boy who lost everything in the Camp fire but was most upset about the loss of his trophy. We took an extra moment to sure that the engraving would arrive in time for Christmas...but you just never know with the holiday season.
I'm pleased to say that his family not only let me know that he received his award but they sent me a picture of this lovely little boy! He was BEAMING! So proudly holding up his new award. I can tell you the picture made me smile so big that my kids thought I had too much wine. His smile filled with such joy and I am SO HAPPY that we were able to help make it happen!
So, now with this ridiculous smile on my face, I wade back into the deep waters of Fantasy Football. My smile and laughter is now DEFINITELY of a different style as I read through the various league and team names for winners...and of course, losers.

(Now, Drew may not be happy...but is the group commenting on extra 'manliness" of his chest or the fact that they are his lackeys? The mystery may never be solved.)
Well, back into the engraving time! Next up...more of the great leagues and teams that use the Player's names (Watch out for Gurley!)
May your playoff season be fabulous...and if it isn't, at least you can look forward to a laugh at the last place trophy!
We all hear about the dreaded "Participation" trophy. One that is given to every person to "make them feel better". Where I understand why people NOW consider this foolish, I've had time to reflect on what a trophy CAN mean to the recipient.To the children, I see that it shows effort.
