We went to the Minnesota Lynx game Friday night and The Kid got to take part in some pregame rituals, including the above picture. Maya Moore (you know, the first female basketball player to ever sign with Jordan’s brand, a four-time All-American, and the number one draft pick in 2011) greeted him at half court giving him a WNBA basketball and a pat on the back. His mom and I were screaming schoolgirls. He tried to play it cool, but he was up until after midnight that night carrying around the basketball and singing songs from Space Jam.
This picture is totally getting printed and framed in our house, both because it’s a fantastic picture (if I do say so myself) and because it’s one of those things that you hope your kid won’t ever forget, you know?
