I have to ask this question because this is really bothering me.
Last Year, My 10 year old cousin really got into sports. Starting with The Bears and cultimating with our beloved Cubs.
His father, my uncle, taught him everything about football, Great. He knows very little about baseball and claims to be a White Sox "fan", yet couldn't answer even the most basic questions about "his team", but was more then willing to completely bash The Cubs.
Anyway, I took my cousin to his first game last year, I have taugh him everything about the game of baseball, Going into in depth conversations about stats, players, teams, ballparks,free-agents, explaining how the process works, The minor leauges, How to fill out a score card etc etc.
What really pisses me off about this, is that Isnt this something his father should be doing I mean after all he claims to be a Whtie Sox fan, he's more then willing to take the 10 year old and his other 2 brothers to White Sox games, but my cousin truely, honestly loves the Cubs.
Anyway, This X-mas I promised the 10 year old that id take him to more games this year, which i fully intend on doing, But I surpized him making arragements about with his Mom, to allow him to go to opening day.
Shouldn't his dad be doing this? It seems to me, that regardless of what team The Dad "supports" and i use that term loosely, He should be taking the kid to Wrigley especially when its as important as opening day.
