Ty played well... in fact, he had an amazing interception. He jumped up in the air with the opponent, snatched the ball out from the air -- out of the other kid's fingertips, in fact -- and fought him for the ball all the way down. When they both landed on the ground we still didn't know who had the ball... and then, flat on his back, Tyler held the ball up in the air. His team went NUTS! The sidelines went NUTS!
His mother's reaction? Well... Full-Tilt Gonzo is about as good a description as there is.
Out of the 367 photos taken that day by the team photographer... also Tyler's mother... did she happen to get any photos of this amazing interception? That would be a big fat bummer of a NO, WE SURE DIDN'T... And we can thank the Full-Tilt Gonzo for that.
But here are few I did manage to get. (And by the way, I really did take 367 photos that day.)
Below: As the reformed soccer player, Tyler is the team kicker.
In this shot he kind of looks like a reformed ballet dancer, too.
Very nice toe stand, son.
