No, it wasn’t anything someone said.
We’re talking snow days and pick-up football in freshly fallen snow.
Everyone who lives in an area that sees snowfall knows that magic happens during big storms.
Everything goes quiet.
Streets that looked like war zones just hours earlier look hauntingly beautiful.
And since almost everyone’s inside drinking hot chocolate and watching Netflix, it’s the perfect time for cops and the communities they serve to do battle on the gridiron.
Actually, you don’t need a field at all when there’s a foot and a half of snow on the ground.
A parking lot works just as good.
