    Needing help with a label quote

    Currently I'm quilting a Indianapolis Colts quilt for a friends wife. Yep its for HER not him. She loves football, he loves hunting and fishing. Anyway when I was getting the details for making this quilt I asked if he wanted a label. Of course he says "You mean washing intructions?" So I explained to him that homemade quilts often have a label with names of giver and receiver, date, a quote anything you want on the label or nothing at all just the quilt. His response "Put something on there that will help me make a touchdown!" Giggling...I agreed. Well I'm at a loss for what to put on this label. Something that should the grandkids see it .....you know! Yes I said grandkids, they are both in their 50's so the chance of him making a touchdown aren't good anyway....LOL! Any help or suggestions? Thanks in advance!

    Maybe something about football being a contact sport?

    By all means let's be open-minded, but not so open-minded that our brains drop out.

    Hey ... I'm in my early 50's and ... well ... "touchdowns" are still appreciated!!

    I going to avoid references to "Wide Receivers" and "End Zone" .... although I'm tempted!!

    How about ....

    "Hubby Completes a Pass" (or his name instead of "hubby")
    May your stitches always be straight, your seams always lie flat, and your grain never be biased against you.

    Go for the long one.
    Always try for extra points.
    Spike it!
    Time for a huddle.
    Whose turn to call the play?
    Football is a team sport.

    stopping now...

    Snuggle watching the play,
    Even when I'm away.
