Default Good News Re: Boy #1

Boy #1 (18 and a senior in hs) secured two internships - one with the Chicago Fire soccer club and the other with Rep. Dan Lipinski's district office. So, classes in the mornings, work in the afternoons. I'm very pleased for him!

Congrats, You should be proud! Most of the younger generation can't understand what many of the older generations had to do "work and school".

Cheers...

He's interested in both the business of sports and public service - hopefully these two internships will help him get some insight and perhaps steer him on his future path.

Keep 'em busy. Makes it more difficult to get in to trouble.

Actually, one day, when he was in grammar school, I picked him up and he off-the-cuff said "hey Pappers!" and that's been his name for me ever since. No idea where it came from . . .

whatever he does, don't let him help out the grounds crew and become a turf manager...
