Sundays Are For Nathan #8

While this space is usually used to recount the utterances of our younger son, Sebastian, today the quip is from our older boy. Nathan now 17, is 6’4″, a senior in high school and finds his parents to be extremely un-cool.

Nathan, who claims he is the world’s best Madden player on X-Box (apparently, Madden is a football video game—I would have no idea since I am in no shape or form a “gamer”). This also, by his logic, makes him the world’s singular authority on anything and everything that has to do with Professional Football.

Nathan: “Sebastian, where did Johnny You Knee Tass play?”

Me: “Nathan, why are you asking him? You have no idea, I guarantee it.”

Nathan: “Yes I do, the Oilers.”

Me: “Um no.”

Sebastian: “The Sonics.”

Nathan: “That was a basketball team. The Patriots?”

Me: “Wow. I told you, you have no idea.”

Nathan: “The Bengals?”

Me: “Yeesh. Think ‘Baltimore.’”

Nathan: “The Ravens?!?”

Me: “As I figured, no the Colts. They originally played in Baltimore.”

Nathan: “What?!! That is wrong on so many levels.”

Johnny Unitas (You-Nigh-Tis), considered by many to be the first “modern” quarterback in professional football, played most of his 18 year career with the Baltimore Colts (Jack Irsay moved the team to Indianapolis in 1984). Photo from wikipedia.


About the drunken cyclist

I have been an occasional cycling tour guide in Europe for the past 20 years, visiting most of the wine regions of France. Through this "job" I developed a love for wine and the stories that often accompany the pulling of a cork. I live in Houston with my lovely wife and two wonderful sons.
