The Big Fan


My 10 year old is a BIG Dallas Cowboys fan.  This adoration was only recently acquired.  While we are not addicts to the sport nor to the ‘Boys, we take pride in our hometown’s team (we especially had fun being Cowboys fans when we lived in Redskin country).  So last year when the Lad started to show extreme interest in the Cowboys, so did the husband.  Our son’s interest actually relit his childhood love. 

The Lad dicovered that his Aunt (husband’s sister) and Uncle were attending tonight’s game.  On the way home from carpool this afternoon, the subject came up again.  I suggested he call his Aunt and talk to her about the upcoming game. 

It was a cute conversation based on the half that I could hear.  When he handed the phone back to me after thoroughly discussing the Eagles versus the Cowboys, my SIL told me what he said.

The Lad mentioned that it might be a tough game for the Boys and that hopefully the Eagles would NOT win.  Aunt Beth replied, “Well, all the more reason for me to cheer louder.” 

“No,” replied the Lad, “It just might distract them.”

Head over to Not Before 7 for a few more chuckles.

    It was a very funny and adorable conversation! Oh, and we left a couple of little “goodies” at Gran & Grandaddy’s house that we brought back from the Cowboys game – just for the Lad. 🙂
