On the latest Our Monkeys, My Circus Podcast, I'm joined by the eight-year-old to talk about the devastating news that Steelers' quarterback Ben Roethlisberger suffered a knee injury and will miss 4-6 weeks. (Related: the eight-year-old doesn't know Ben Roethlisberger from Ben Franklin -- Ben Kenobi is another story, however.)
We also get into how weird it is that a grown man (me) can get so invested in a glorified game of dress-up (football) that it ruins his week. These emotional roller coasters don't exist in the world of Ninjago. Maybe there's something to be said for that.
We cover everything from drawing life lessons from "Diary of a Wimpy Kid" to scheming to annoy the girls on the bus (pro tip: don't let those plans fall into the wrong hands -- mine) to how I almost (not really) got fired this week to updates on the soccer season, violin lessons and excursions in dog-walking.
