I watched a man die tonight.

Tonight was our first real football game, excluding last week's jamboree. All was going well, everyone was pumped and having a good time. Maybe fifteen minutes into play, I was turned around talking to my friend's boyfriend when he stops and goes, "Y'all know that ref just fell out over there." One of the referees was on the field with medics rushing toward him. They started trying to revive him and get his heart beating again. The ambulance pulled up, then sped off taking him to the hospital. The entire crowd was dead silent. When the ambulance left, we all clapped and everything like we do when someone who's injured gets up or is taken away. We continued with the game. Just before halftime we found out he died at the hospital. We held a moment of silence. Everyone is so shaken up.
RIP James Parrish.
