Run, Max, Run!!!

I don't mean to get all emotional but one of my favorite things about being a father has been playing football with my boys. When I was a kid, all I wanted to do when I grew up was to be a football player. It's been a pure joy to see that same enthusiasm in my boys, especially in Max. He is obsessed with the game. He knows all the pro teams and most of major college teams. He really understands the game and wants to constantly learn more.

So you can only imagine how proud I was when he scored his first touchdown in flag football. He was so excited that he said it was the "most glorious days of his life." I have been bragging about it to everyone because I am so proud of him.

The obsession with football has not been lost on Ben. He wants to play tackle football with Max and me. Unfortunately, Max is sometimes a little too rough with him but Ben is a good sport about it. He gets back at Max by jumping on top of the pile and laughing.
