I feel very lucky to have a son who not only shares my passion for sports, but for the same teams I follow. Some of our favorite times as Daddy and Brennan are when we’re able to go to a live game or even just sit around and watch one on TV.
My son has learned so many of the nuances of baseball, football, and most of all, soccer. He understands all of the rules and can recognize almost every player on Manchester United. As we were watching the game when Wayne Rooney became the all-time leading goal scorer for the club, he said something that really made me think, “Daddy, when I grow up, I want to be just like Wayne Rooney.”
