Sean is CRAZY about football and that is an understatement! To start, he asked for a “real Tom Brady shirt”. I do a little research and these shirts run $60 to $125. We are not messing around here. He continues daily to tell us which friends have which shirt and how he needs the Tom Brady BLUE not WHITE like Matthew, #12 shirt. So I give in and find one and Gram and Grampa offer to give it to him for his birthday. It comes just after the big win over green bay (i hope i am right-the one where they killed them by half time). We taped this for Sean since it was on at 8pm. He watched it 5 times by the next week when they played again. This time they played Ravens and won. He wore his shirt Wed and Fri before the game and again on Monday after the game. Then random times at home running the ball from the kitchen to couch-his daily routine.
This Fall he played flag football with the first graders. Very low key and unofficial. He however grew to love the sport even more. He is having trouble with the fact that the superbowl is the last game of the season. Chip told him it would start up again in the summer. I say great now in June when it gets warm he is going to start asking for football when it is really late aug. Even then it is lame!
We hope the Patriots win the Super bowl-not only for us but for Sean.
