Not Drawing the Kind of Blood One Would Expect

Bones had a Lacrosse game today. Right before the half, he tapped his helmet.

Tapping one's helmet signifies to the coach that you need to come to the bench.

So the coach pulled him, and asked him what was up. He evidently told him something felt funky in his mouth guard and it was hot and he was feeling beat. As he put it, "Playing Midi is a lot of work. You really have to run a lot."

Halftime quickly came and the coach had him grab something to drink and he grabbed a slice of orange, where he felt a 'crunch'.

He pushed on a tooth and it popped out, hence the 'something felt funky in his mouth guard'.

He pulled the tooth of his mouth, surprised, looked at coach and said, 'Hey! I lost a tooth!"

The coach kind of bug eyed, shook his head, Bones called for one of the Team Moms to hold it for him, he then spit in the grass, a bunch of spit and blood.

The coach looked and exclaimed, "Blood! Bones is ready to get back in the game!"

And with that, halftime over, Bones put his helmet back on and ran back out on the field.

I was handed the tooth after the game, shocked by the story.

They lost 7-6, but it was a good game. Blood and all...

A game without blood is ... well ... Scrabble.

Could've been a lot worse. I was watching a show about NFL Hall of Famers when they were featuring Fred Biletnikoff, the great Oakland Raiders receiver back in the 70s. Apparently he had a pregame ritual to where he'd go throw up on the sidelines before the opening kickoff. When the other players would hear Biletnikoff barfing they'd all exclaim, "Freddy's ready to play!" The guy even made MVP in a Super Bowl. So be thankful that all your son does is spit a little blood. And doesn't get nicknamed Gene Simmons.
