On opposite sides of a makeshift gridiron at Malibu Bluffs Park, two teams of three young boys meet at the line of scrimmage; they take a stance and wait for one of the boys – playing quarterback – to blurt out “hike.”
The ball is snapped from one boy to the quarterback as the third runs down the field, past the defensive trio. The quarterback tosses the ball toward the boy with a wobbly spiral. With all eyes on the ball, it lands in the hands of the third boy whose glory lasts only a moment before his flags are ripped from his waist.
