Our Biggest Football Fan


It's kind of sad that football season is over, when you have a child so enthralled in every game that he has even shed a few tears over his favorite teams losing. -This picture was taken before the Chargers lost.- Spencer has been a huge San Diego Chargers fan. He followed them all the way until they lost the division championship game to The New England Patriots. It was so sad to see his little heart broken. He cried a good few minutes to which Rob just held him and let him cry it all out. He liked them so much and wanted them to win sooo badly. But, at least he liked the Patriots as well, so then he thought the Superbowl was in the bag. Unfortunately for him and the Patriots, they ended their perfect season with their one and only loss to the Giants last night. Again our little football fan shed tears. He told us, "None of the teams I like won!" He was so upset. Rob being the good dad that he is and wanting to make Spencer feel better, reminded him of how his team, the Denver Broncos, only played one playoff game, and lost. He also reminded him of how the Broncos even lost to the Chicago Bears. (It just goes to show you how much Rob loves his boys to even bring this painful point out) This cheered Spencer up quite a bit, but he still needed a few moments to regain his composure.

Such a cute, little fire ball. I love his competitiveness and obsession. All he does is eat, drink, and sleep football. --I guess our family will have to find some other way to spend such quality family time together on Sunday now that the season's over.

the Pats got caught cheating early on in the season, they were video taping the other teams during the games. you would have to get all the info from derrick he knows way more about that stuff then me. if i would of known that spencer wanted the Pats to win i might of cheered them on more. I don't want his little heart to be broken. Guess he has learned early on about losing huh. always a valuable lesson.

Sorry Spencer! I know how you feel. None of my teams won either (Cowboys, Packers & Colts). We cheered for the Giants because they were the underdog, and because it didn't seem right for a team that was caught cheating to have a perfect season. Besides, at least two of my teams lost to the Super Bowl champs...makes it a little easier somehow.
