Violence is NOT inherent to Autism

I’m not sure who said it first, which news agency, which reporter….I don’t know, but whoever reported it was being negligently irresponsible in their reporting. It came out late Friday evening, after the worst elementary school shooting in the nation’s history, that the shooter, Adam Lanza, may have had Aspergers…some said that he had autism. … Continue reading »

Dad v. The Elf

It’s Christmas time again, which means our elf, Clyde Finnegan has come down from the North Pole in order to scare the crap out of the Boy in an attempt to make sure he continues on the straight and narrow in the month of December. When I was first introduced to Clyde, I didn’t much … Continue reading »

Dad v. The End of Season Two

This weekend is the annual Little League Football banquet.  A day to celebrate what our kids accomplished.  A day to expound on how much they’ve grown.  A single day to rejoice…that it’s over for another year. That I will not be out in the cold watching my boy sit on the sidelines while it’s colder … Continue reading »

Dad v. The Trumpet

Dont’ get me wrong.  I’m really, really excited that the boy has taken up an instrument and will be playing in the band. I love that he picked an instrument that, for reasons the Cheerleader and I cannot explain, he’s talked about for years. The boy is ten now, but when he was seven, he … Continue reading »

Dad v. Parenting in the Elements

Being the parent of a little league football player in October and November can be rough.  Oh, sure, it’s rough for the kids to be out there in the cold playing their hearts out…but we’re sitting on our butts in the cold and rain and wind.  Seriously, there are times it’s no fun at all, … Continue reading »

Dad v. Beast Wars

I’ve never been a big Transformers fan.  Not even when I was a kid.  Maybe it was because I could just never get the hang of transforming any of them.  They were apparently far too complicated for me. But my sons have both loved them…and only handed a few of them to me to break … Continue reading »

Dad v. Waiting with the Bruiser

For two years I’ve been trying to get a tackle out of my boy in practice-let alone in a game.  He spends most plays that he’s able to be out on the field for backpedaling.  No matter how much I talk to him. Last season he pretty much only played on offense.  In fact, the … Continue reading »

Dad v. The Fourteenth Birtday

About a month and a half ago now, the Goob turned fourteen. I didn’t really want to dwell on it.  Just like I don’t like to dwell on the fact that she’s now a freshman in high school and talking about things like homecoming and prom and drama club and…well, everything. It’s bad enough that … Continue reading »

Dad v. That Dude on the sidelines

Hey everybody. I’ve been away for a while.  Just watching the boy play football and trying to figure out how to make money online.  I know it can be done…just trying to figure it all out. What I’ve also been doing is fulfilling our Little League Football family commitments.  You know, those things that everybody … Continue reading »

Dad v. Pay it Forward Friday – 8/31/2012

Our fellow bloggers present us with a lot of opportunities for furthering our blogs, and gaining followers.  Here is a way to Pay … Continue reading »
