It's never too early to start teaching kids right from wrong. My daughter, Aurora, already knows how she feels about Ohio State, at 4 1/2 months old...
You're a good father!
That kid never had a chance. You got to love it! I can't wait to start brainwashing my own.
Is she pinching a loaf at the same time? That look seems familiar. My son was raised the same way and now his list of colleges is short!
Note the lack of a beet red face in the videos. And I didn't hear any enormous expulsions of gas to go along with the expressions.
Father of two speaking here. I know these things.
No "poop eyes" there. The eyes always let you know when daddy's time is heading for intermission.
The best part about it: kids are so honest, so brutally honest!
say the darndest things!
the Alabama video someone put up here earlier.
Can never start brainwashing too early.
It's not brainwashing when it's for a good cause. Then it's just called moral standards.
I taught my little brother to say "Go Blue" when he was just learning to speak. Everyone in my family (ND fans/alumni) would say to him "Goooooo...." thinking he'd say Irish.... Man I love surprising them!
I recently found out that my dad taught me how to say "hockey" before I learned "mama," and she was not nearly as amused as he was.
Your daughter could work for ESPN, because their analysis of OSU is just as nuanced. Congratulations on your newfound millions!
I hope to do the same when my wife and i have our own kids. Keep up the good work!
Congrats on the new baby! and your a great dad!
is it like that car commercial that the kids are named after where they were conceived? But really, I like that name.
Currently I'm an uncle trying to get my 2 nieces to be Michigan fans. Both parents graduated from State and they have an uncle on the other side that went to OSU, but my brother's always been a U-M fan so I think we're good. The trick is to give them teddy bears with Michigan shirts, then they associate one of their favorite things with maize and blue.
Every time my 2 yr old daughter sees me watching sports of any kind she shouts "Michigan! Go Blue!"
Brainwashing can clearly be used for good, thank you very much.
I have 2 1/2 and 5 year old girls. the younger one will point to my shirt everytime I wear Michigan gear and say "Hail, Hail", and she has me sing her the Victors while putting her to bed. The older one will not use anything green (clothes, plates, etc.) because she hates MSU (her aunt and uncle are grads, so her and her 4 yr old cousin argue about it frequently). I have also taught her to plug her nose as we cross into Ohio. She has disdain for th entire state. The two of them will put on a show singing the Victors for anyone who asks. My 11 week old son (Brady, yes after the QB), is working on getting his timing down on the fist pumps while I sing him the Victors.
Raise her to be a true michigan fan, your doing good.
