Tomorrow's New York Giants

Peewee Football
Photo by myself, at the soccer fields in Red Hook, Brooklyn.

Not all city kids play stickball or basketball. There are public parks and fields ready for sport.

During a game of peewee football, these fellows looked like gladiators.


Mark and I revisited the food carts in Red Hook, unable to keep ourselves away from watermelon juice, fresh tacos and grilled chorizo.

In a nearby field, a peewee football game was starting up. Just above was the elevated highway.

There were crowds of adults, cheerleading squads and linespeople. Later as play started, there was serious yelling going on about an off-sides call.

This was a serious game, and it turned out that the players were only 8 years old. Mark and I were flabbergasted.

Thanks Tammy

I guess to me, Football among kids is a novelty. Anywhere else, it's commonplace.

they were cute, but fierce! ;-)
