Just got through dropping off the kids at school.

One of the teachers pulled me aside as I was leaving and said she had something to tell me. Apparently, a week or so ago, it was time for the kids to go outside to play. My five-year-old didn't have a jacket, but she thought he needed one, so she grabbed one out of lost-and-found. She put it on him and zipped it up; he looked down and saw "OLD NAVY" on the jacket and his eyes got wide.

She sent him on his way, and looked out at the playground later - he was standing there crying. She went and asked him what was wrong, and he said he didn't like the jacket. When asked why, he said "I don't like Old Navy, I like the New Orleans Saints!"

He may not know brands yet, but he knows who he cheers for!

One day I hope to have a son to be able to pass down the wonderful teaching as you have done with your son.

Great story HCW! :bigok:

MY son (13) has always pulled for the Patriots, since kids are prone to follow whatever team is hot when they become "sports aware." A couple of months ago, I was telling him the Patriots score and he bristled and said, "Dad, they are just my AFC team -- I am a SAINTS fan now!" Brought a tear to the eye of a proud Poppa. :D

Great story, Thanks for sharing! kids are great. My wife, two girls and I were eating in a mexican restaurant the other day, and my two year old started singing "The Saints are coming" it was out of the blue and she doesn't speak very well. Needless to say, we got a big kick out of that! I guess she had the saints or at least the song in her head.

Great story. I have a 4 year old son who runs through the house yelling every time the Saints score.

He knows all the words to "Saints Go All the Way", "Who Dat" and "The Saints are Coming"

He can be in Wal-Mart, and start yelling "Who Dat Say Dey Gonna Beat Dem Saints?" as he goes down the aisle......

That's my boy..........

My ringtone is the who dat song. Everytime I get a call my 3 y/o chants who dat, who dat, go saints

Other times he'll say reggie regggiie

During the games he knows all the cheers.....Deeeuuuucccceee, defense.

I have to be careful though since I haven't brought him to a game yet, my wife stays home and watches it with him; she teaches him cheerleader cheers. Like "sack that quarterback" or whatever the cheer is. It's a little disheartening, that is why next Sunday we are going to the SF game together!
