Who's the wild man now?!

Mrs. Wormer suggested I post this since I may have mistakenly given you guys the idea I'm Father of the Year material.

Pretty much my favorite thing in the world to do is to go to a college football game. Especially if that game involves my beloved Ducks, of which I'm an alumni.

On Friday night Mrs. Wormer and I were out at the local Octoberfest when I got a call from a buddy telling me his "date" to the Ducks vs. Utah State game had canceled at the last minute and asking me if I wanted to go.

This was a tough call because as tempting as that was, Dean Jr. (12) plays football and his first game was Saturday morning. There was no way I could miss it. So I politely turned down the offer and begged my buddy to keep me in mind in the future.

Dean Jr. played a great game. He got a couple of sacks, stopped a running back cold with a pop that I'm sure they could hear a couple of counties over and all in all did me proud.

After the game we were sitting around unwinding and I told him about being invited to the Ducks game but choosing to go see him play instead. His reaction verbatim: "are you fucking stupid?"

All I could hear was his mother in the other room laughing her ass off.

You're too young for the F-bomb, Dean Jr. (grown-up scowl)!

Good job on your game though.

Re: the Ducks...look like the probably Civil War winner is becoming quite apparent.

He he...the F-bomb! I laughed, I cried...I indulged in schadenfreude...then I ate lunch, heartily.

Say Hi to Mrs. Wormer for me!

I am laughing too fucking hard to type a coherent comment!!!!


Dean Wormer said...


I normally wouldn't let him talk like that but under the circumstances it was the perfect thing to say.

We'll see about the civil war. The beavs have a bad season and this may be THE game for them this year.


She says hi back.


He is a funny kid. When he gets out of his room in about 50 years I'll have to introduce you.
