Wonders Never Cease

This contemplative young bearded fellow is a member of my immediate family. Okay, that's my 18-year-old son. This is a noteworthy moment, because it is undeniable proof that he actually attended, of his own choosing, a sporting event.
Theories abound about why the son of a sportscaster denies any interest whatsoever in sports, but I'm not a psychologist.
He is in the final semester of his high school experience, which until this moment had been utterly devoid of sports.
He has been attending a school with an academic emphasis. There is no football or basketball team, but there is soccer.
Saturday night, the Magnet High Mustangs set the soccer world on its ear by winning the state championship in the highest classification. My son got caught up in the spirit of things and apparently actually cheered for his school's team.
The world did not stop spinning. Be true to your school.

What a good daddy you are to let boy-man not be interested in something you were so passionate about. I think that's the hardest part about raising children is parenting them the way they need to be parented and not the way you needed to be (way back when).
