I’m shopping for a birthday gift for my soon-to-be seven-year-old nephew. His dad, my brother, has suggested a mini football. My brother and I share a love for professional football, particularly that of our hometown team, the Pittsburgh Steelers.
Their family is now stationed thousands of miles from Pennsylvania, so my skepticism isn’t unfounded. I pose the question: “Is he a Steelers fan?” My brother’s immediately response cracks me up: “What kind of ridiculous question is that? He wants to eat doesn’t he?!”
I have found one option in a dedicated fan store, but it’s not my first choice—I take a quick photo, just in case. My wife and I choose to check another Big Box store, and there is another option for a Steeler’s football. Mmm, one more place to check: amazon.com. Yep, there it is, the one that I like the most.
This purchase marks the completion of #89 Give birthday gift to each of my family members from my bucket list.
