I'm taking my four-year-old daughter, Libby, to her first Wizards game at GMU this Saturday. She's totally jazzed, and so am I. My wife happened to meet a Wiz executive a few weeks ago and mentioned what big fans we are. Next thing you know, he sent us fantastic tickets to the game. How cool is that?
Libby listens to her old man enough to know that she loves Gilbert Arenas and Caron Butler. But I recently told her that Brendan Haywood is the tallest guy on the team, and now all she can talk about is seeing him at the game. She totally mimics everything I say, so I'm trying to be careful not to call him Haywood Jablome around her.
I'm still skeptical about whether she can sit still long enough to watch the game. She gets bored pretty quick when we watch games on TV together . I suspect she'll have a greater attention span for Gil's cartoon.
Anyways, if you go to the Dallas game Saturday and you see the cutest little girl in the world waving a sign saying "My first Wizards game," I'll be the goofball sitting next to her.
