Morphing into Sports Freaks

I didn't watch the Superbowl, but my boys did. I'm not sure what happened, but I appear to have given birth to sports freaks, or rather they are morphing into them.

Ringo just follows along. He is the least sports freakiest of them all.

Mr. T is REALLY into it. I got him a subscription to Sports Illustrated for Christmas and he is EATING it up. He cannot get enough. He's now following basketball as well. He is the most sports freakiest. I'm still waiting to see his expression when he gets the Swim Suit Issue...

Bones is in it for the social aspect. He likes to be able to talk to people about sports. He's even starting to read the sports page in the newspaper. We carry a newspaper in our car at all times now for sports... and comics. Since starting his new school, his classmates have convinced him that the funny papers are a must read in the mornings. His favorites? Argyle Sweater and Pearls Before Swine.

But I think Bones kind of looks at the sports section as a gossip paper. He'll read it and then start talking to us about who got traded to who, who got caught with drugs, who is doing what to whom. He's really into the human aspect... both good and bad.

I leave the room during sports. The four of them can do their sports bonding. I have other things to do.

My boys were rooting for the Steelers. I didn't care.

I did pop in every now and then and take a look at the ads. I only saw one funny one I loved... the one with the Little Darth Vader.

I laughed hysterically... because... this was Bones when he was little, except he always dressed up as Hulk. And when Bones is disappointed, he does the body schlump. Cracks me up.

This is the extended version. Ringo and I don't get why they didn't run the entire thing. It had to be money related.

I can't quit laughing...

I had seen the extended version a few days ago and was very very disappointed that they didn't run the entire thing. The shortened version was too chopped up. But the long one is hilarious.

I posted last night but it didn't take for some reason. When watching this add I said to your dad, "OMG, that's Bones". The gestures, walk, everything looked just like Bones:)

I think for now on, when people ask me what Bones was like when he was little, I'm just going to have them watch this video. Now he's just a large version. I can't quit laughing... ;-)

I could so picture myself doing what the Dad did, surreptitiously remote-starting the car and startling the kid.
