My 3 year old son won a silver medal in the preschool olympics. He rejected the medal, beat up the gold medal kid and stole his chocolate. I'm not sure if I should be concerned or proud.
I did not make this headline up
from 2010 to 2011 was tremendous. Those damn muffed/fumbled punts were driving me nuts, but last year he was great.
I remember the 2010 Wisconsin game, a guy in the stands behind me yelling, "For the love of God don't kick it to Gallon!". To have him go from an almost sure turnover to being a decent returnman and good/great slot receiver was just amazing
and I would lean towards concerned.
"Jeremy, with the new sandwich offerings, which one do you think tastes the best?"
"...they are all the best, they are all very tasty"
"...and I noticed that with the school year starting, there are many attractive girls on campus, has one of them stood out to you?"
"...they all do, they are all really nice and pretty!"
This is not worthy of its on post but read in my local paper this morning (Columbus,In) that 3* guard Ron Patterson will not be able to play at I.U. After failing to meet academic requirements! Just thought I would share this with blog!
Concerned. Sorry your kid was a poor loser and bullied another kid, that's nothing to be proud of. (this is assuming he did it because he finished second, if he was defending himself or something more was involved then it's a different story)
On the other hand, winning isn't everything; it's the only thing.
If you're not first your last?
"If we don't win the Big Ten championship, (it's a failure)," Hoke said. "We know what the goal is, what the expectation is. "If we don't meet it, then we've failed. It's pretty cut and dry."
No cause for concern - you don't want your son to be a pussy. You're raising your son to be a winner. Nuff said.
And chocolate is awesome.
douchebags are always a concern. I assume that was just a funny you tried to make.
So he's ready for the Hunger Games, where's the shame in that? And I mean, really, aren't the Olympics just a souped-up version of the Hunger Games?
I guess they edited this part out:
Doug: Jeremy, this is an interview, you don't have to pay me. This is $800.
Gallon: Soooo what, man? You earned that buck like a mothaf***er. Keep that s**t.
Gallon = Snoop Pearson still gets me every time I see Jeremy without a helmet.
I'm concerned what will happen once my son is able to obtain a nail gun.
I get the team thing, but come on Jeremy, just pick one guy who is the toughest to block!
I'm just going to take this as our defensive players are equally great and they're all extremely hard to block.
And in reply to your kid, just use it as a teaching moment. On the inside, be proud your son can beat up a kid but teach him why it was wrong in this case and why stealing is wrong.
Not to hijack, but Greg Mattison and Brady Hoke were on a local West Michigan sports radio station this morning, if anyone is interested. You have to listen to the ever annoying Ray Bentley, but its fun normal fluff stuff from the coaches.

Doug: What have you been practicing during the off season?
All players: We've been busting our butts learning how to avoid giving you a real answer.
Doug: Is that something the coaches have been emphasizing?
All players: You bet. There is always room for improvement. It's all about the TEAM.
Doug: Okay. What else can I ask? Oh yeah, who's the funniest guy on the team? Best dressed?
That kid is adorable, but you can't get a thing out of him.
That said, Doug Karsch did far better than I could. On this assignment, as soon as Gallon appeared I'd drop the mic, shriek "OMG Notre Dame under the lights wooooooo" and high five him while giggling like a madman. 11 months after that night, that's still what goes through my brain when I think of Jeremy Gallon.
You look good girl.
One of the passes from Denard looked like a bubble screen
Great way to sit on hold!
I hope Denard continues to throw that well during the games. He'll be in new York for sure.
Doug Karsch and the Countdown series are the topics of today's Blockhams' episode.
13,000 points on MGoBlog and you're worried about whether your son is being raised the right way or not? Nah, you're doing fine.
too excited for the opener against Bama in Jerry World. These next few weeks of work might just dragggggg on a little too slowly.
What is the preschool olympics? I'm trying to think of what 3 year olds would compete in:
- Obstacle course?
I don't know, man. If my son got second in any of those I would be pretty pissed.
I know it's just highlights, but man Denard looks SO much better throwing. His throwing motion looks fluid and effortless and the ball's coming out in a tight spiral with velocity. If he can do that in a game, we should be pretty good this year.
Sounds like your boy has some Buckeye tendencies. Might want to look into counseling before he starts wearing denim shorts and a Smack t-shirt.
