Happy to see son R dressed in his college band uniform for the first time

It is game day.  All across the country college football players are dressing in their uniforms. But other types of players are dressing today too — for example, the band members (and cheerleaders, etc.).  Today son R appeared in his snappy band uniform. He is tall (6’1″) and lean, and looks sharp in his uniform.  I hate to say the word proud, but I am happy for him.  And I am excited for me.  I am as happy — in fact happier, since it is safer — if he were playing on the football team.  I was more of the jock, so always thought of sports from the player perspective, and it is fun to see the excitement from the band perspective, too.  For him, it is opening day as much as for the players.
