We are not a big sports family, so I have absolutely no explanation for why my 20 month old is IN LOVE with football. Besides dancing to the music in commercials, it’s pretty much the only thing that holds his attention on TV. I’m hoping this doesn’t mean he grows up to actually want to PLAY football though, since I don’t think I can handle watching him get trampled and the only other option seems to be Douchebag Quarterback. YEAH I’M LOOKING AT YOU TOM. CUT YOUR HAIR.

Evan’s a little hard to understand with the sippy cup in his mouth, but I assure you those words are “football” and “touchdown.”

    I find when you say “No, not a touchdown” to be hilarious.

      Well if I’m going to be forced to watch football all the time, the least he can do is learn the rules. Next toddler words: Incomplete! Interception! Especially if he’s watching the Redskins.

    I love it. Hubs is big into football, so on Sundays we go to a sports bar so he can watch the game(s) (no more cable = no more 24/7 sports access) and I can eat wings (which, as far as I’m concerned is the only reason sports bars exist. Anywayyyy…). O gets into it lately yelling, “Go! Go! Go!” and randomly throwing his hands in the air in the universal symbol for “Touchdown!” It would be a lot cuter if I didn’t have visions of this being my life for the next 30 years.

    it’s funny how they start to have their own little personalities and interests, especially when they are different from ours.

    dude, our boys would totally get along! right now, everything is “buttball!” i mean, completely obsessed with it. sleeps with a toy football type of thing. it’s crazy. we watch college ball, but it’s not on all the time or anything, so this obsession blows our mind. but it’s awesome all at the same time! love it!

    As cute as he is watching football, I really love that he’s using Brutus as a chair and Brutus is just all “Yeah, whatever you want, Red.” In my mind, Brutus calls Baby E Red.

    Thanks for posting. Now if E is going to be a Pats fan, he just needs to learn to say “Illegal videotaping!” (Ducks). And, to be a fair, if he were a Cowboys fan he’d need to learn “Disappointment.”

    Too cute! I love how he’s just lying on the dog – I bet they’re best buds :). I also love the name Evan!

  7. Teach him the ref arm signals! Safety would be so cute. I also can not get enough of brutus-chair.

    Super jealous of the football obsession. JD’s current obsession is CATS, and we are just not cat people! He only wants to read books with a cat in them (shocking how many have at least a tiny picture of a cat somewhere), drags around stuffed cats, and he says “cat” but still can’t correctly use “mama”. I’m worried that looking at the cats in cages at PetCo will not be enough someday…

    Hi Other Miranda! That is also my name so it freaked me out until I clicked through :P

    Anyhooo. Any chance you can get lil E interested in baseball so I can take you all to Mets games next summer? I just renewed my upper deck seats soooo…

    I love it. And I love your dog. Peyton runs around throwing a ball and yelling “fumble!!!” at the top of her lungs which may be a sign that her dad and I watch too much football!

  12. Reid loves this video. He thinks everything that Evan does is SOOO fascinating. (at least on video anyway).

    But I love how the dog has so completely resigned himself to being furniture :)
