Connections - Fall 2017 - 30

the stopwatch counted, and I was a click too slow.
I learned a bunch during lunch that day.
My son plays high school football. I'm ambivalent
about it because the risk-reward equation isn't that
favorable, especially if one plays for years. I asked him
what he likes most about football, "It's not soft, but
hard and makes us work together to get something
done," he said. Indeed, it's the only semblance of
military training American teenage boys still get.
There's no mandatory service here as in most other
major countries, no compulsory giving of youthful
time and energy to serve society at large. Like it or
not, some essentially American can-do,
get-it-across-the-line thinking will die with the
last good football coach.
A few years ago, some terrorist tried to blow up a
plane by lighting a shoe bomb or an underwear bomb
or something like that. Some football player type saw
him trying to light the fuse and knocked the bejeezus
out of the guy. I remember it because I had lunch with
the most artsy-craftsy, left wingy, wonderfully kind
friend I had soon after the news of the attempted
bombing. She said about the incident, "Sometimes all
the grief therapy and herbal tea in the world can't get
it done like a tough dude with a job to do."
Sometimes, many times, nearly all the time-let's
not divert-it's about getting the job done respectfully
at the right time.
