It is currently 1:45 am. I have been up since 6:30am on Saturday morning, and I am just too wired to get any sleep. The day started with my first flag football game(we lost) and it ended with my son and I watching my alma mater (THE Hampton University) take on Howard University. I also found out today that my son lied to his mother about doing his homework, so we had a long talk about lying and the importance of homework. I think I got through to him, but I'm not sure. He hasn't lied to me that I know of, and I want to chalk it up to him being 11, but that is too easy.

I haven't talked a lot about this, but my son's mother is sending him to Arizona to live with his stepfather on October 17th. I cannot discuss too much, because there are legal rammifications at stake, but I am trying to maximize my time with him. I know I'm rambling, so I'll stop right here, and just post a picture of my son reading the football program while the game is going on...

Everything I've read on this blog shows that you're a good father. I wish you well on the Arizona thing and your son. That has to be a tough pill to swallow.

You are a Philly fan right? Good luck to you tonight. Hopefully you won't get Ed Hochuli as your ref and the replay equipment is working properly. My Chargers got straight robbed yesterday.
