He’d told me previously that he goes for the Dragons and his favourite player is Jason Nightingale. Knowing the Dragons had drawn with Parramatta the night before I asked him “Did you watch the Dragons last night?”
He casually replied “Yeah, watched both games.”
Now, this kid is 7 years old and staying up past 11pm to watch some footy! I said “Oh gosh, I didn’t even watch both of them. Who won the other game?”
And he just, yet again, ever so casually told me “Um, the Broncos beat the Sharks.”
So I was like “Oh good, I think I tipped them.”
Then I asked him “Does your brother go for the Dragons?”
And he said “No, he goes for the Rabbitos. And I go for the Dragons and Tigers.”
So now I’m like “AAWW YEAH! Tigers, I like them. Who’s your favourite from the Tigers?”
To which he said “Captain Robbie Farrah”
I continue to get more excited and yell out “Awww Robbie! Good one”
And with that I sent everyone off to swim.
His brother was in the lane next to us at the other end so I asked him “Do you go for the Rabbitos? Who’s your favourite?”
And he said “Issac Luke!”
Yeah, I know what team all my kids go for and who their fave player is… ‘cause I’m just that cool ya know.
