Scott gave me the title for this post. It's a modification of a term used to describe OSU coach Woody Hayes' style of football and pretty much explains the reason why I'm not a football fan. It's an apt description of the game Neil is playing now. He moves ahead, but it's a slow move. It isn't always exciting (except maybe to parents who are looking for any little thing), and sometimes it's all he can do to maintain the line of scrimmage.
That being said, Neil enjoyed petting and playing with Sherman, the therapy dog, today--even throwing him a ball a few times. He was able to focus for a few minutes on a balloon game in the afternoon, which was pretty awesome because his attention span in the P.M. can be pretty short. And here's a couple of extra yards: Neil walked a little bit. Now, let me explain. He had a therapist on each side holding him up and they had to move his left leg for him, but he actually took a couple of steps with his right leg.
Yup, we're going for the touch-down.
