Oh To Be a Kid Again...


First, allow me to remind you that I did not start loving baseball until I was 13 years old.   Even then, I never knew of the wondrous item about which I am going to tell you.  I assure you, if I had known, I would have broken open the piggy bank right then and there to go buy one. 

The other day, I had to stop by the local sporting goods store to buy my son some cleats for his baseball team--woo hoo he's playing baseball--and his first practice was then rained out.  In the baseball aisle, I saw the ingenious MLB money-maker you see pictured above.

I'm not gonna lie.  I wanted one.   Bad.   I didn't care that I wasn't eight years old.  The little mini helmets are just so mini, so unpretentiously adorable.  And may I ask the rhetorical question, how much fun must it be to switch the little helmets around each day as the standings change?  

I think I'm going back tomorrow to get one.  Seriously.  Don't make fun.  You know you want one too.  Or, you already have one.

Better yet, video of me gleefully arranging my tiny helmets.

My son got these for his birthday. He also has the NFL and Big Ten versions. He loves them. He takes them over to the computer every morning to update the standings.

See, I knew it! That's a cool idea--I could buy them "for my son," and then sneak and arrange them when he's sleeping.
