    I came home from the Eagles game on Sunday and my 2 1/2 year old asks me if i was at work....

    I tell him.. no, I was at the Eagles game with his uncle and when he gets older he can go with me....

    He then looks at me... a bit confused.. and says....:

    "I can go see football and Ralphie with Daddy!..... YEEAAAHHHH!"

    the kid is a fing genius....

    This is the first year that miss sackman is going to the games on a quasi-regular basis. She still knows nothing about the game of football other than Ralphie, Chip, cheerleaders and a bunch of people screaming their heads off. But she seems to enjoy the experience.

    the trick will be picking a game where CU might win so that he has a positive first experience.

    I took my goddaughter to the game on Saturday (4 yrs old) and she had a great time. After Ralphie ran at the start of the 2nd half, she asked me when the other animals were going to come out. :smile2:

    Getting the fight song out of her head is a whole different story. I'm glad her parents are both Buff fans or else they may never let her hang with me again.

    My 5 year old daughter wouldn't talk to me when I came home from the game on Sat because I didn't take her with me. The Mrs finally explained it to me and she was pissed about it all day. I had to bribe her to cheer her up about the whole issue.

    My son brought up CU at his parent teacher conference and I almost died when the principal looked at me and said wow, tough couple of weeks. I wanted to smack that old bastard.

    My 6 year daughter asked me the name of the bar we visited on Sunday for the CU watch party. Her 1st grade teacher was inquiring. I hope that doesn't come back to bite me at the parent teacher conference.

    Which bar did we go to, daddy-o?

    The Fox & Hound, sweety.

    My daughter is too young to know CU football, she isn't even talking yet. But, she knows where her favorite book Hello Ralphie is. We read it multiple time a week. Her favorite part is when I sing the fight song. I don't know why. I'm the worse the William Hung when it comes to singing. She's also obsessed with my CU hats. Especially the ones with Ralphie on it.

    The plot thickens. I have a son? Who told you that? I'm going to need to see the results of the DNA test. :wow:

    PHEW... After I saw the title of this thread and before I opened it, I thought it was going to be a smugly defensive post by Coach Hawk.

    OTOH, an explanation of the current situation and the season from the man himself might do nicely. That is, if a mere mortal, non-D1-FB coach such as myself could understand the intricacies.
