Backyard football 1969

In 1969, pick up football ruled the day. This snapshot shows three Keenans, brother Tim, cousin Kelly, and the Holt brothers, John and Bob. (my cousin is front row, left, I’m next to him, then John Holt, and Bob Holt. Brother Tim is back row, third from the left).  We played with gear that was the athletic equivalent of the Ford Pinto yet no one ever was rushed to the ER. Mouth guards and protective cups were still ten years away.
