A Photo for Friday: “Final Goal”

Not only is it Saturday, but this is a diversion from normal entries.

Final Goal

“Final Goal”
April 3, 2018
Montgomery, AL

I wasn’t sure what I wanted to go with this week, and since I am already a day late, I will go with this as it is a recent sentimental favorite. This is a “final goal” in two senses of the term. First, it was a golden goal overtime win. Second, it ended up being the last goal my son (#16) would score in his high school career (he graduates a week from tomorrow).

    So kind of you to share that. Also nice picture (bright stadium lights, high contrast, etc).

    (P.S. – the ‘Preview’ still seems to be broken. My comment’s proof reading is all that suffers but…)
