as a Redskins fan. It's true.
We don't have a satellite dish, and while we came thisclose to getting one at our new house, it didn't happen. It's a fun story that goes something like this: two hours on the phone to cancel our upcoming Comcast installation and set up new service with Direct TV. Only to have Mike tell me two days later he changed his mind and wants Comcast, thus forcing me to make more phone calls, and wait even longer for TV and internet. Followed by an evening of trying very hard not to punch him in the face. But I digress. Basically, without a satellite, the cable company decides what games we watch every Sunday. It's hardly ever the Bills, usually the Patriots, but always the Redskins.
So every Sunday we watch the Redskins. And we cheer for them. And we're genuinely happy when they do well. It's true.
But make no mistake about it, come December 11th, I'll be at Fed Ex field with my #12 jersey on. Hopefully with my cousin Becky by my side. Because the Pats will always come first.
Since I'm always in search of free things to do with the kiddo, I decided to take him to Redskins training camp.
Yes, he wore a Skins jersey - and he looked darn cute doing so. Sorry, Becky. It's true.
We talked about it for several days before we went. Will would yell, 'Football!' and 'Touchdown!' and seemed genuinely excited. But, really, nothing beats a 'pop pop.'
My son crossed the yellow rope and started running on to the field. But I caught up to him and he didn't get too far.
Towards the end of practice, it started to sprinkle - just a tad. Will was so excited to play with the 'lella.' I was so excited to find ANYTHING that would entertain him because we had a kick-ass spot for autographs - and I didn't drive all that way for nothing.
Waiting, waiting, waiting for practice to be over. Autographs!
So after all that waiting, only two players walked by (the rest chose not to exit by the fans). Nooooooo autographs *sad face*
Sign your football? Ha. That's almost as funny as us being dead last in the power rankings. Ha?
At least Will had fun.
