Baseball Obsession

My son is obsessed with baseball. While he strongly favors the Cubs, he enjoys the entire game of baseball and knows several other players throughout the league.

The other night the Cubs played a late game (in Arizona), and we told him he could not stay up to watch. He threw a fit, and cried about missing his beloved Cubbies, but we thought he ended up going to sleep.

It wasn't until the morning that we found out he locked his bedroom door, turned on his TV and watched the game anyway. Needless to say, he was grounded from TV the next day, which meant missing yet another Cubs game.

So what did he do first thing the next morning? Turned on SportsRise to get the full report of the games. This is now his morning routine.

He eats, sleeps and breathes baseball at this point. In fact, his previous obsession with Star Wars took a backseat. That is until we found him this shirt .....

That is so cute! Tell him he better be good or he won't get to watch them in the World Series ... that should buy you MONTHS of good behavior :)

Get that boy in little league, then maybe someday he'll never miss a Cubs game. ;)
