Circle Of Dads

Guess what?  It's June 2nd.  That means the Circle Of Moms voting is now (thankfully) over.  I can get back to life without being barraged on a near constant basis for votes.  I'm headed back into my man cave where I can no longer be bothered.  I'll now go back and watch the 6 Giro d'Italia stages I haven't seen yet because I've been too busy going from computer to computer voting for everyone.  Hen-pecked without any benefits - that's what this Circle of Moms thing has been.

But before I lock myself away, I'd like to remind everyone that Fathers Day is in June.  So if you'll indulge me, please check out this clip of my little fighter.  Earlier, while mom was reading a magazine or buying Groupons, Ian and I where shooting situational fighting videos in HI DEF.



Damn right that's an Old Spice t-shirt.  No behind-the-counter-at-Nordstums eau de toilette for Ian - he's already going old school.  There's no denying the kid has the moves and it's clear he'll have no problem mixing it up with anyone - anytime, anyplace or anywhere.  If you listen closely, he even makes a Terminator reference in the dialog, and I'm not talking about Terminator 3 - Rise Of The Machines.  Again, old school.  I think there's even a reference to Ice-T's "Cop Killer" in there.  But he didn't get that one from me, so it's clear that he's quickly becoming a man of the world in his own right.

Oh yeah, he's already done a triathlon, a handful of 400 meter running races and we've recently discovered his sweet spot is high and a little outside.  Dudes will get that last one.

I am the first one to post...which, of course, means that I am the best!!!!!!!!!!!

Are you entering the Circle of Dads contest?

"hen-pecked without benefits"... not sure what that means... most who are hen-pecked ain't usually gettin' any benefits, if ya know what I mean ;-)

Love the vid.

Circle of dads - you made me laugh out loud at that - I can just picture you, Kovas, Chris K & crew battling it out for that one.

So much truth in this post...oh, so much!

Little man is ready to tackle the world brother - that is some top notch daddying right there.

High and a little outside - the manly man's pitch right there! Let's you extend the manly arms, dig the back foot in, and knock the snot out of it.

If he leads with his wrists he could knock it into right field but he doesn't even need to know about that sissy stuff!

Kovas said...

Great post - circle of dads unite! Loved how he slipped in the original Terminator reference, but was disappointed we didn't actually get to see him give you a wedgie. ;-)

Jill said...

I love the wedgie comment ...he's giving your wrist one I guess. That's one mean kid I wouldn't want to mess with! :)

I'm not sure what to do with all my extra time I spent voting for the moms...

Big Clyde said...

Hysterical.

I loved the exchange:

P: Is that all you got?!
I: Yeah!

Wrong word, but all attitude. I also liked the cyborg reference.

Cool.

Emz said...

"I'm gonna kick you butt" I ditto that.

"I'll leave the I'm gonna give you wedgie" to Ian.

COM hell is over.

Where's your RUN EMZ bracelet? Seriously Lance bracelet?

misszippy said...

Kovas! I am with team thank goodness circle of moms is over! Sorry.

Such a cute video--he's a tough little, old-school man!

NattyBumpo said...

The COM is in there with the Mom-ification of the web...it is BlogHER, not Blogger. Grumble grumble grouse grouse. Sure sure, let's just keep putting forth the stereotypes that guys are better at math and science and that girls are better at expressing their feelings and writing and stuff. Sure sure. Who cares about equality?

Good video, my girls came over and wanted to know what I was watching.

Where do I go vote?!?!

BabyWeightMyFatAss said...

Even I hated the Circe of Mom deal. blah. But I think there should be a Circle of Dads based on 1) music tastes and 2) story telling. ;P

LB said...

Aimee said...

Ha ha..circle of dads!! :)

Yay for Father's Day coming up!
AND, I may be a girl, but I know baseball talk. So..your son's a pitcher huh??

Her Name Is Rio said...

You should start a Circle of Dads...so the guys can "benefit" from the other perspective (ouch, my ulcer is acting up). Ian is awesome! My 9 yo daughter thought his fighting style "is cute".

JessiePants said...

Wicked cute little man you have and the Terminator reference and Old Spice tee make it even better.

Chris K said...

Patrick: "Is that all you got"?
Ian: "Yeah"
Patrick: "That is all you got"?
Ian: "No"

Funny.

I'm glad Ian didn't kick my ass when I met him in Feb.

Petraruns said...

He's cute! Not what he wants to hear probably but hey I'm a picking hen and that's what we think when we see little boys fight. Love the tee.
