In the grand scheme of things, that minor detail does little to alter the rags-to-riches story of Cinderella. Of course, this name change still hasn’t been approved by the princess herself, but at least I have until 2015 to plead my case.
Watch more sports: As my wife reads that subhead, she probably has a perplexed look on her face.
But follow me on this one.
I love sports. Since my daughter would rather watch Barbie’s Christmas special than watch grown men tackle each other, I have only one other option for a companion while watching sports…and that companion isn’t my wife.
My son will turn 1 this year and I’m assuming that’s a great time to get him more interested in sports. You can never start too early.
To make sure that he grows up to be a professional athlete in four different sports, I vow to watch more football, basketball, golf and baseball while he’s with me, just so he can be the greatest athlete of all time.
“Well if watching sports made a person such a great athlete, why are you 5-foot-8 with no skills whatsoever in any sport?” my wife may ask.
That’s a good question. I hear these things skip a generation every once in awhile, maybe that is why. Or maybe I just didn’t watch enough sports while growing up (I’m sure that generated another perplexed face).
I can’t worry about if watching sports on the couch with a cold drink and potato chips makes you a better athlete. I can only make sure that my son is well prepared for his future, so I have to believe watching even more sports in the coming year can be better for his and my health.
