She sends me speeches before every game, and afterwards, she gives me a grade.

If she’s at the game, she’ll even take notes. Then, on my way home, she’ll say, ‘What happened on this play?’ and we’ll go over everything. She gets pretty down and dirty, but I love it. She’s my eye in the sky. And I figure that if I let her down, I’m probably going to let my teammates down, too.
