Only my son can go to a football game and come home with a Star Wars Clone Troopers helmet.
The team we visited yesterday was celebrating its homecoming. During a break in the game, Gabe noticed a student walking around with this helmet (one must assume it wasn't part of his usual attire; probably part of a homecoming parade entry/costume). In any case, Gabe told the guy he'd always wanted one.
The student - who undoubtedly earned his gold star for the day - just handed it over to Gabe. What a nice guy for making a little kid's day....even if it had the opposing team's mascot painted on the side. But a quick trip to the restroom - with soap and water - took care of that quickly.
