    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?

    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!

    Whose turn to call the play?
    Football is a team sport.

    stopping now...

    Does the team have a "motto" or something (like the Raiders are "Raider Nation" or the Saints say "Who Dat?")? You maybe could work that in. Since Indy is the Colts, it could be from her favorite stud... LOL!

    Just thought of a "clean" reference using "End Zone".


    How about

    "Meet me in the End Zone".

    or .....

    "Tackle Time"

    hee hee ... given his expected outcome I kinda like Tackle time ... and it fits with his fishing too Ooooh! Triple entrende!!
