My wife and I had our first child this year on January 15. He was 6 weeks early and spent 2 weeks in the neonatal intensive care unit. We were vary lucky to have an otherwise healthy 5 pound 1 ounce baby boy named Dominic. It was a vary hard time for us to see Dominic hooked up to monitors, but he was clearly a fighter. My wife Stephanie was discharged within a couple of days, but we spent most of our time with Dominic in the N.I.C.U. With the 9ers post season in full swing, I left my hat on his incubator every night we left. I wear this particular hat every game day and never leave home without it during the season. And when we came back, I would sit with him and read football news, or listen to games together. For 2 weeks Dominic kept my hat safe, and we spent most of our bonding time watch game replays on NFL network. Football brought a crutch for me to stand on during a vary emotional time, which is typically of many I'm sure, but today, I am sitting here with my son, watching 49er preseason football, game day hat and all! Go 9ers!
As we go into week 7 of the 2014 football, season to my coaching buddies remember that your words have power. If you call a kid a meathead or get in his face about something, remember to grab them after practice and explain to them the reason for that. If you need a kid to give you something that they are not giving you show them what you need, don't just assume that they understand because you see it clear as day.
To me the game of football is...
my name is Michael ray. I entered my pee wee football team as a group but am not sure if you guys have the entry. I got an email that confirmed that u got it and said I would receive and email once it was approved, but that was a week ago. I wanted to enter my daughter in the contest as an individual but she just turned 10, and I wasn't sure if she could be entered, so I just entered the team....
TEAM 49 IS OUR SCHWARTZ FAMILY LEGACY
SUPER BOWL 49 IS OUR DESTINY
In the 49th year of the 20th century, our Dad and Mom, Raymond Schwartz
and Margaret McCabe married and went on to build their own dream team of
11 in the next 14 years. With seven boys and four girls, life at our
house was often a full-contact sport, but with Dad as the Coach and Mom
as General Manager, we were each fully committed to our family team.
