*Manning and his father arm wrestle and his dad ends up winning*
Manning thinks about how his father and how their relationship is
Manning reminisces the time how his dad didn't know anything about lacrosse but still wanted to. He realized that his father showed him love through spending time and not verbally.
Years later Manning and his father tried arm wrestling again. This time it was different because the father wasn't as strong anymore. In fact, Manning gained more control and he knew that, but he still didn't want to see his dad lose so he lost for him.
Before Manning left for college his dad came in for a big long hug. This was a shock to Manning because his dad has never shown him this kind of affection and knew the hug had lots of meaning and love.
I hope my father realized that our roles were being reversed. I was becoming stronger and as he got older, the more weak he became. When I come back from college we might arm wrestle again or maybe he'll send a card to me. All I know if that he loves me.
