A Fathers Journey: Sharing Sports With My Daughter

By Kody Brannon On July - 15 - 2009

Let me start off by saying that I am blessed to be the father of a 3-year-old daughter. She is the light of my life and I got to share with her my passion for sports by attending a minor league baseball game last Friday night.

The game was between the Frisco Roughriders and the Springfield Cardinals of the Texas League. While it was more for my benefit that we went, I took my daughter Chloe to this game. This was the first time that I have taken her to a sporting event without my wife.

Needless to say, I was a little nervous. I wasn't sure if she would enjoy herself or if she would hate it.

We got to the game, and it started with getting us a couple hot dogs, drinks, and some twizzlers. Let me say, the two hot dogs were for me, but Chloe had other ideas and promptly stole my second hot dog for herself.

Once the pre-game festivities started, she was more interested in the two mascots, Deuce and Daisy. As she would watch them and ask to go see them, I would let her know we couldn't go on the field.
