First of all, I rarely start topics, so if this goes in a different forum please move it.

My 5 year old son was a borderline Rams fan a few months back. I literally told him I was gonna buy goats and make him walk around behind it cleaning up after it. He decided he didn't like the Rams after all. :thirishdrinkers:

Somewhere between then and now he has ceased being my little Strawberry blonde, stark white (typical redhead skin) skinny little boy and has now morphed into Russell Wilson.

Tonight, after Mommy gave him a bath, as he is standing there stark naked waiting for his pajamas, he flexes his arms and tells his Mom, "I look just like Russell Wilson!" He had smoothed the front of his hair forward, so I guess that is the magic trick.

Right now he is running wild around the house yelling "Russell Wilson this and Russell Wilson that. Touchdown SEAHAWKS!!!" He does this all day long, every day, pretty much. He asks me questions about him all day long.

He's been begging for a Russell Wilson jersey, and there just happens to be one on the way (little brother is getting Earl Thomas).

Now, I guess I'm just waiting for him to inform me that his name is now Russell and may I please call him that... :lol:

There are certainly worse hero's that a kid could choose.

I have a feeling a lot of kids are going to "be" Russell Wilson on the school yard fields in the next ten to twenty years.

I was always Steve Largent when i was growing up, even though I ended up throwing the passes, not catching them.

When my kid was 11 or 12 I remember him telling me. "Im Rick James Bitch!" I had to stop watching TV with him around. I think Russell Wilson is probably okay.

I'd had to give him a spoon and a cup and go tell him to dig up a gold nugget... :49ersmall:

It's pretty cool. I'm really glad he's getting into the Hawks. His jersey is just going to cement it all. I bet my wife is going to have to wash it every night while he sleeps...

Awesome! Your post made me laugh. (Good job on the Rams anti-propoganda, btw).

I clearly remember the days I pretended to be Gary Payton.

Every kid has a hero.

I was Jordan, but he ended up being a prick ... Oh, right. Well, at least I solved one mystery.

For me, when I was between 5 and 10/11, depending on what season and what day it was, I changed. Saturday's I was either Mario Bailey, or Napolean Kaufman, Sunday's I was Brian Blades (Largents last year was the first year I started watching football), and during baseball season I was Ken Griffey Jr. I even taught myself how to switch-hit (so I could hit lefty like him, and mash imaginary dingers with my hat on backwards - granted, it was a stick, and pine cones, but to me, I was immersed in the Kingdom with the roaring crowd)...ah, the simple times.

Great story.
I was a combination of Babe Ruth and Sandy Koufax.... a slugging pitcher.

I remember the day my 7 yr old informed me she was princess Fiona, but only during the day, then Dakota at night. I was Bo Jackson. Thanks for sharing

Awesome.

I look forward to when my son does the same thing. (And my wife tries to tell him to be Aaron Rodgers, so I can tell her we want our son to model himself after a doer, not a complainer.)

Yeah, it does kinda take me back down memory lane. I was exclusively Largent until I was 10. I lived in Alaska and didn't discover basketball (the only sport I actually played) until we moved to Oregon when I was 10. Then I discovered the Blazers in 1987. So, I was Clyde Drexler and Terry Porter as well.
