good "son moment"

Quinton and I were watching the Dawgs get slaughtered last night when the half-time show began. We watched that guy win $400,000 throwing a football into the hole in a Dr. Pepper can.

The guy did well from five yards away, but when he moved back to the ten, he missed everything he threw. Quinton said, "Daddy, you could hit every ball you threw from there. You're a good passer."

Quinton is correct, too. I call them "Johnny Unitas" passes when I lead him just right and lay the ball perfectly in his hands when he's on a full-tilt gallop. If he stands still, I tell him "This one's coming at your chin," and I seldom miss my mark. I've thrown a football all my life and muscle memory lasts a long time. I throw a good spiral, too.

Quinton asked me if I could have hit the long pass that the guy made last night to win $400,000. I told my boy that I didn't know. "I could make at least one out of three," I said. "I can't say for sure if the first one would have hit the hole."

"It would have," Quinton said. "You pass better than that guy does."

He went to sleep after that and I started drinking Wild Turkey. I thought about what he said and I became all misted up. My boy believes in me. He trusts me. He knows that Daddy can throw a football. He had no doubt in his mind that I would have won that contest.

Bejus. I hope I never let him down.

Comments

you're so full of shit. You're not that good a passer. You couldn't hit me because I run too fast. Way too fast. I've only met one man that could meet me...Greg Cook, quarterback for the Bengals and yes he passed to me. In my backyard. Just ask my brother.

That was awesome.

The game sucked, but that was something.

You won't.

When will Quinton be allowed to read your blog?

MarcL, go down twenty yards and show me a buttonhook. Wear a jersey with the number 88 on it. Tell me which 8 you want the ball on. Do that and THEN tell me that I can't throw a football.

Terry is wrong. You will let him down someday. Parents always do. No one can live up to the perfectionist standards that kids set for their loved ones. I learned that the hard way when my daddy fell off his pedestal and landed in the dirt. But, you know what? That didn't make me love him any less. I taught me that everyone makes mistake. You just pick yourself up, fix what you can, apologize for what you can't, and get on with your life. Quinton loves you and he will survive finding out that you aren't perfect. As long as you can get over it, so will he.

Government is too big and too important to be left to the politicians.

I enjoy your website and your opinion is very constructive. The way you have your website laid out is very cool. I enjoy playing bingo online at Play Cash Bingo Online . They have a matching signup bonus and very friendly people to talk to who like to chat about bingo and life in general. It feels like an online family. There is a building jackpot that is building all the time. It is a very relaxing atmosphere. I find it easy to make new friends here at Play Cash Bingo Online where there is NO annoying pop up ads that always get in the way when I am doing things like playing bingo online.
