Alas, it is Super Bowl time and I got a request for a football player. Football is NOT my thing. I am a basketball girl - GO MAVERICKS!!!!
So although I live just a few miles from the Cowboy's new stadium, I don't care. We did win some tickets and went to a game and had fun checking out the beautiful new stadium and they won that day but it just isn't my thing. High school football is great and college games can be loads of fun but Pro Football? I don't like it. Please don't send hate mail.
Beth Saremba requested a "neutral" football player so I just randomly chose Red and Black - at least I'm pretty sure those aren't Colt or Saint colors.
I do know enough about football to know that the player I just created is a Center.
And that he is about to fumble because he has no hands
And that lines do not run diagonally on the field like I have them here
And that I'd have to be on the defensive line to ever get this view (which will NEVER happen)
And I'd rather be the quarterback because he stands behind most of the other players with a view of rear ends in tight pants.
Which brings up the one thing I hate about basketball - long baggy shorts. Oh for the uniforms of the 1980s....sigh....
Guess you might want some How To info
Here is the helmet:
1.75 circle cut with scissors for helmet opening - random strip from my desk for stripe (you will have to find one on your own desk, I'm going to clean up in a minute)
Oval ring for top face-mask line (large oval punched around small oval hole)
Wide oval punched next to wide oval hole for bottom face-mask line
Here is the rest of him:
1.25 circle head
1/2 inch circle -Nose like Curly's in 3 stooges post
Small Heart and standard hole punch eyes
Wide Oval body
Small Oval sleeves
Heart to Heart arms
Wide oval punched again to get U shape for legs (can't see but they are there in black)
Word window legs
Spiral punch throwaway parts for cleats
1.25 inch Circle re-punched to get football
Draw on your "mean" eyebrows and frown (and football laces)
