Mike Wise Confronts My Daughter

Apologies for the gross excess of self-referential posts today, but here's a quite entertaining (if a bit long) "video column" by Mike Wise, from Bender Arena on Friday. It captures the scene fairly well, and includes scenes of Wise speaking while cramming pizza into his mouth, and Wise confronting my one-year old daughter Ida, who was attending her first sporting event.

Ida was born a few miles from Bender Arena a few hours after American's 2007 win in a Patriot League quarterfinal game, so it seemed fitting for the two of us to watch these crazy kids storm the court almost exactly a year later. And it was very nice of the game ops guy to suggest we get the baby out of the way before the masses descended. We waited in a corner. Ida and Wise make their joint appearance around 2:45 in.

Ida is a real cutie!

First sporting event at a year old, eh? Is it wrong that I want to bring my daughter to her first sporting event (Nats game) when she's a month old?

That was more Ida scoping the area to see if any ice ponds were around than a confrontation.

That's funny, she doesn't look Druish.

@ DC Sports Chick - You may have people complain she is making too much noise at a Nats game.

You're a good guy, Dan, but are you sure about Ida? She's too cute.

Yo Dan,
You makin' the trip to Birmingham with us? The bus from campus will only take like... 12 hours. It will be a unique moment in the history of the bog.

Can I suggest Mike Wise and Ida as the Blog Show B-team? Offers the requisite combo of tall, bald sportswriter/chick appeal.
