365 - 6/ Watching Football

I've been amazed lately at how much the boys know about football, the teams, the players, their positions, even numbers on jerseys. This is the first year I've noticed the boys watching football, I mean really watching like grown men. While cooking dinner yesterday, I listened to Ezekiel and Elijah talk football with Fonzy while watching a playoff game. They talked football for over an hour, looking up players online, getting the line up for the Pro ball, talking about who was better and who's team was going to win the Superbowl.....sharing special time. Fonzy told me of the times him and his dad would watch games. You can tell when he talked about it, it was a special time for him, and now he is sharing the same with the boys. I wonder when the boys get older, will they still want to sit around and watch the game with Dad, or will they prefer to be out with their friends, Dad all but forgotten. I guess it really doesn't matter....I'm sure when the boys get older, they will remember these times fondly, just like Fonzy remembers his.
