Chelsea football welcomed Ecorse to town.
Each week, Chelsea has honorary captains, people who have contributed to the program in some way. These captains are often former players, but the week 2 honorary captain was…my family. We ate the pregame meal with the team, and we were part of the pregame meeting. This photo shows my dad reading a message from one of my brothers who played football for Chelsea but couldn’t make it to the game:
While that was happening, a severe storm was passing through Chelsea. A lightning strike knocked out power to part of town, including the football stadium, leaving everyone to wait out the storm under the emergency lights.
The weather cleared, but the power stayed off until juuuuust before they were ready to postpone the game. The game started two hours late, but it started!
