"Just so you know, Dad, they didn't win the year Erin was born either."

Well kid, you're wiser and more at peace about this than I am. I think the term is "equanimity" and you've got it in spades.

But just so you know, kid, we're watching every Red Wings game together next year. Your sister and I did that last year and I'm pretty sure that was the difference maker.
And you know what? I'm still pretty happy. Happy to see you every day. Happy to hold you when you cry. Happy to bounce you to sleep in my arms.

See you after your nap, kid.

Awwwww *melts* So precious. Kids really tend to mellow you out, don't they?

Wait, they didn't win last night? Thanks to Twitter, I hadn't realized.

A rabid sports fan with perspective. Now that's something you don't see everyday!

Wow! He looks like your little girl in that picture. So sweet. Sorry, no sympathy, I am so glad to see hockey vacate twitter.

This is totally off-topic because frankly, I don;t care about hockey. Or baseball, or whatever it is you're talking about.

But I just have to say this: You and Emily picked two seriously awesome names for your kids. Erin? Adrian? Love them.

Sorry about he Redwings. Having those little ones around sure softens the blow.
