The value of Helmets

I went to a head shape clinic yesterday. Not for me, for the baby (see previous post). The little guy has to wear a helmet now, to prevent a deformed, adult head. I find it funny that he has to wear a helmet to correct something that wouldn't have happened had he been wearing a helmet in the first place. So they gave us an airbrushed helmet with stars on it. It was ugly, so I painted it to look exactly like my old flaming skull goalie mask. It scares the kid now, but at least he's cool looking. The head shape doctor mentioned that the little guy's head wasn't so bad, then started pointing out that even my wife's head was deformed a little. I punched him in the mouth for that.

Hindsight is 20-20

This is hard to write.

When I watch football and the Stamps score, I sometimes spike whatever I'm holding into an imaginary end zone in my living room.

So now I don't get to hold the baby anymore. Nobody said it was easy being a sports fan.
