Great Days in Parenting

I grew up in Western Pennsylvania so I'm a die hard Pittsburgh Steelers fan. And as a Steelers fan I've been very frustrated and disappointed in Ben Roethlisberger's recent behavior in bars with young women. As a fan you hate for your team to lose your starting quarterback, but as a Christian I'm glad he got a six game suspension.

Anyway, after work I was talking to Jana:

"Hey, Ben Roethlisberger got a six game suspension today."

"Really? How do you feel about that?"

"I'm glad about it."

"Guess what shirt Aidan wore to school today?"


"His Ben Roethlisberger jersey."


So a word of advice to all you parents out there:

The minute criminal charges are brought against someone on the team you cheer for, make sure to clear out your kid's closet.

  1. My sixth grade teacher read back who we had said was our favorite football player at the first of the year---mine was Lance Rentzel of
    the Cowboys--not a pleasant memory.
