Surprise! Opposing Player Is Your Father

Earlier this week, a U.S. airman made a surprise homecoming during his son’s high school football game by disguising himself as a football player from the opposing team. Master Sergeant Joseph Martel came home from Afghanistan a month early and got dressed in the opposing team’s uniform. The big reveal came between the third and fourth quarters as the referee called players from both teams, including Joseph’s son Justin, out to the middle of the field to talk about sportsmanship.

Martel’s creative disguise made for an incredibly emotional family reunion.

About carpebootium

I am a modern-day pirate. I travel the world and trade in today's currency, information. I sail through opportunity, comedy, history and strategy to turn turbulent into tournament, chaotic into cathartic, and embarrassing into emboldening. There are none who should fear me save two: Those who have what I want and those who get in my way. Are you done sailing your calm waters with strong undertow? Have you your fill of empty treasure and oasis destinations? Well good...come and join my crew! We're a lively lot from all over the world but be forewarned...anyone attempting to drop anchor will be thrown overboard, shot, harpooned and then marooned on an isle of cannibals. We move on! If you are ready...welcome aboard the Carpe Bootium!
