Bean watched some NFL action with her Daddy last night and gave us running updates on the progress of the game. Which she is qualified to do, as someone who has handled the ol’ pigskin herself, viz.:
The game was the Baltimore Ravens vs. aunt Anya’s Indianapolis Colts, and during the scoreless first quarter, Bean noted that:
“The people is running and has a ball! Clapping! Yes, go people! You get up, people, and take the ball!”
In the second quarter, when Baltimore put the first points on the board with a field goal, Eve had the following observation:
“He kicked it! He kicked a ball and it is flying in the sticks! Oh wow!”
But her allegiances began to show when the Colts answered the field goal with one of their own. Reaction was swift and vehement:
“No, you stop it! You stop a kicking, go out! Get out of here!”
We are denied further commentary as the Bean had to go to bed during halftime. Sorry, Anya. The kid clearly prefers the Ravens. Just another reason to hate Joe Flacco, I guess.
