My boy is bored and I told him the Nats are on and he can watch the game. I then added, we're tanking but you can watch it. His response was a deadpan classic, "What's the point of watching?"
My kids have all left the house. "Why aren't you watching the White Sox, Dad?" "They're losing 7-0 in the third." "What are you listening to?" "The Washington Nationals on XM -- they're losing 10-0 in the 2nd." My son laughed out loud, and said I was pathetic as he left the house to ride his bike to visit a friends house.
