Great fathering here. Never mind the work it took to put together the excellent stop-motion – complete with nonchalant Jay Wright bang – the ability to set aside rooting interests for the betterment of your offspring is truly something all parents should strive for. Like me. My wife’s family has a few Yankees fans in it and already broached the subject of buying Kyle 2 a Yankees hat. I quickly squashed that noise, but I am preparing a highly edited, unfiltered 10-minute video clip recapping the 2004 ALCS and Game 1 (Game 1 only) of the 2009 World Series to
brainwash uh, influence his decision on who to root for should there be any hesitation.
As for Villanova– he doesn’t have to go there. I just have one simple rule: he can go to Villanova or any school ranked higher (Princeton, Harvard, etc.). So he can’t, for instance, go to St. Joe’s. Though I’d be happy to make him a stop-motion of John Lucas III’s shot:
IT’S MARCH MADNESS, BABY!
Side note: Jim Nantz has really improved as an announcer. His 2004 call was disjointed and anticlimactic, while his call of Nova’s shot was descriptive and perfectly captured the moment. I’m coming around on Nantz.
