    Not the typical guy

    So, how many of us have sons that aren't the "typical guy" who likes sports or cars?

    3 For I delivered to you as of first importance what I also received: that Christ died for our sins in accordance with the Scriptures, 4 that he was buried, that he was raised on the third day in accordance with the Scriptures --1 Corinthians 15:3-4 (borrowed with gratitude from 37818's sig)

    I liked it when I was trolling my one teacher in High School. He was a Boston Bruins fan, so I wore a Montreal Canadiens jersey to bother him (huge rivalry between the Bruins and the 'Habs').

    I am the son who doesn't care for sports and cars. One exception. Mike and my brother-in-law and I might go see a Braves game this summer.

    Adam kind of likes going to the local Double A baseball team we have here, the Flying Squirrels () from time to time, but mainly he wants to try to catch a baseball. He couldn't care less about the game.

    It's an interesting thing, having to come out of my comfort zone, so that we have some things in common and can talk dad to son. I've always been into sports... cars, not so much, but I love sports. Adam couldn't care less about them. He loves Minecraft. So, I take the time to learn about his interests and it has made all the difference in our relationship.

    I don't care about sports. Pretty sure I'm the only guy in Montana who doesn't. I only care about cars insofar as mine run and get me where I need to go, but I can still appreciate a nice car.

    My son sure likes his cars, though. (1 year old)

    I have one son who does and one son who doesn't. Oldest played baseball and tried football, likes both...and cars! Younger son doesn't even have a drivers license at age 23... and could not care less about sports.

    Same. Now, when I was healthy I was just fine playing sports, but watching them was just boring.

    I foresee myself having the opposite problem with my daughter. I couldn't care less about sports. Cars hold some interest, but I never learned to do much mechanically so I don't bother. At almost 5, my daughter is crazy into sports. She's really good at soccer and will probably be starting leagues this summer. She found a basketball and wants to play with that. She's asked to watch football on TV. She asked me to buy her a glove and baseball so I could teach her catch. We went to a local baseball game last summer, and she threw a big fit when we had to leave before it was over (was already 11pm).

    Fortunately(?), she's also shown an interest in video games. We have certain nights to play together. That can be nice sometimes, but why sports?!



    Maybe I should introduce her to sports video games...
    I'm not here anymore.
