Yesterday we watched the Minnesota Vikings home opener. Ben is really into sports right now. Collecting cards. Playing football outside. Sporting his new Brett Favre t-shirt. He is also a pretty intense seven-year-old.
The game was a back and forth battle. About half way through the forth quarter, it looked like the Vikings were going to lose. I asked Ben, "Who do you think is going to win?" He started to cry. We talked about this and I said that he needed to not get so worked up about this. Caleb from the other side of the room parroted me and said, "Yeah, Ben. It's just a game."
But when Brett Favre threw a forty-some yard touchdown pass to win the game with two seconds left and my little boy, with tears streaming down his face ran and jumped in my arms, I could hardly stop myself from crying.
