We all have big dreams for our kids. It’s only natural to look at you – so new and pure – and think: maybe he’ll be President one day. Or a doctor, or a lawyer, captain of the football team, the next Kobe Bryant. I don’t care what you choose to do with your work week – as long as you’re happy. Fireman, teacher, lawyer, cosmetologist, dentist, mailman, pilot, artist, athlete…go for it little man!
If you can, please continue to root for UCI Basketball. I know, I know. The Anteaters?!? Yes, the Anteaters. Sure, there are more “popular” schools to root for. And yes, watching them blow 20-point leads is the definition of disappointing. But, here’s what’s so great about them…well, you got me there. If for no other reason, because it’s a family bonding opportunity. It might not be “cool” and at times it can be embarassing. I’m not going to correct you there. But the games are ALWAYS fun – that I can promise you.
You are 6 months old and we’ve taken you to 2 games. We went on your daddy’s birthday and again for the UCI Homecoming game. I’m not just saying this – you had a GREAT time! Man, did you get excited when people cheered. Your big saucer eyes were following the players up and down that court. AND – they won both times! Could it be that you are their lucky charm? How many kids can say that? How many kids can say that about UCI? Trust me, FEW!
