Watching for Will at 20:11
What I'm Doing at 20:11 in 2011... I have to state first thing that this picture was not taken at 8:11. Sierra snapped this shot (including the first official public photo of my new haircut) a little later in the evening. But this is the Will I was looking for... At 8:11, I was looking for Will on the sidelines of the Hilmar/Enochs football game.
Pictured with me is Will DeBoard. Will officially is an employee of the CIF Sac-Joaquin Section which is the governing body for high school sports in our area. However, Will is most well known (around here) as a former sports writer for the Modesto Bee.
Will and I have spent a lot of time together on the sidelines at football games, and mat-side at wrestling tournaments. We've become friends. Most of the time, he was the only one who would talk to me on the sidelines during games... patiently explaining the referee's call or the previous play.
I've written about Will before. You can read my previous entry at http://blog.kellirocha.com/2009/03/19/will-deboard/
It's always great to run into Will at the games but it doesn't happened often enough. So many good memories and the best of those memories are the people that we've met along the way.
