The Slice

When parents mess up your plans

It has been a long time.

He probably has his own family by now.

But there once was a little boy in Spokane named Joe.

He was the son of two SR colleagues of mine, Julie Sullivan and Jim Springer. (They moved to Portland many years ago.)

Anyway, Joe was a big Denver Broncos fan. And when a Super Bowl Sunday rolled around that involved the Broncos, Joe had one simple request.

He wanted to be allowed to wear his football helmet to church.

This request was denied. And though I cannot recall for sure, I suspect the Broncos lost because of it.
