Kids can smell the “dad-ness” all over me. Even when I’m working at the Super Bowl.
I found this to be true during the Wednesday night of my Super Bowl week on Radio Row. That was the night of my volunteer work at the Wounded Warrior Amputee Football Team’s game against the Minnesota NFL Alumni. The night was moving, the action was intense, and a 4-year-old Minneapolis girl knew just how to put me in my place.
With a sly preschool smile, she didn’t say a word. Instead, she reached into her mouth, pulled out chewing gum and held it out for me to take from her. So I did what any self-respecting homesick dad would do: I took the freaking gum for her.
But that doesn’t mean the FTFP’s Two Dads, One Super Bowl podcast wasn’t a priority.
It just wasn’t our first priority.
But just because we didn’t record each night as originally planned does not mean we didn’t come through for you.
So check out the attached podcast (at the top of this post) and be ready for Josh to “spill a little Coke on the floor” and pee himself. I’m not kidding. We’re delirious. This work is hard.
(Pro tip: If you are interested in hearing us go off the rails, and nothing else, start the podcast from the 24-minute mark. #bananas)
