Ahhh. Football Season.

I’m not sure how many of you care about this, but the NFL preseason started last night.

I am giddy. I love watching football. I’m gearing up for my fantasy football drafts. (That’s right. You heard me. Drafts. More than one. Probably more than three, but that is neither here nor there.)

Aaah. Football season. It is the only time of year I get to bring up Najeh Davenport pooping in a laundry basket without seeming like a freak.

Come on. It is funny and you know it.

While we’re on the subject, did you know there was a Poop Report? I blame the potty training for my recent fascination. It isn’t even 9:00 am and Ian is on his fouth pair of underwear. All potty training suggestions are welcome here.

Did any of the rest of you catch it last night when someone (my guess is Cris Collinsworth) referred to Davenport as “the number two receiver”? I heard snickering in the booth. Good times.

  1. Oh my. The Poop Report. I’m not sure if that’s just hysterical or pathetic, but it’s proof positive that the Internet has a little something for everyone.
    As for potty training, we’re not quite there yet ourselves, but I did receive some handy suggestions from a mom friend. I don’t want to be doling out assvice–especially since I have no experience with it myself. But oy, am I not looking forward to it, either.

  2. Waiting until they were almost 5 seemed to work pretty well. When they put on their OWN diaper, it’s probably time to transition.

  3. You do know I am now rolling around laughing hysterically at the Poop report.

    Dude. I think you are my long lost twin.

  4. wait, what where? we didnt think anything started til next week! Crap! Can’t wait to see and hear those hard hits on the big screen (ok it’s a 27 inch, shut up! we’ve been poor college students–still better than the 13 inch in the bedroom–tv, that is!)

  5. Ditch the underwear. Let them run around naked from the waist down…its how i trained my twin daughters and just a few weeks ago trained my son. My son was trained in 3 days this way. Once they can make it to the potty consistently naked…then they earn their underpants. Once they keep those dry then they earn their bottoms back :)

  6. I was very frustrated as well with potty training. When I was researching potty training a common theme seemed to be praise and positive reinforcement. I came across a website called http://www.pottytrainingrewards.com. We hung it in the kitchen and named the little boy on the front of the package, Bobby. My son could not wait to go to the potty so he could push the button, hear the praising message, and get his chocolate reward from, Bobby. It really got my son excited about using the potty himself and it was fun for him. Because he became so involved, potty training was easy. So give it a try. Best of luck!

  7. I like Geena’s idea. However, what are you to do when you aren’t at home. You can’t really leave them naked in someone else’s home….can you?
    I loved the poop report…totally hysterical. The “number” two reciever….I’ll bet you heard snickering….how effing funny is that crap….LMAO!!!

  8. He will always be the “number two” receiver in my eyes. As for potty training, call me & I will tell you everything that didn’t work for Eric. Which is just about everything!

  9. Sometimes . . . they never learn.

  10. Sarah, I thought I was one of the only women excited about the start up of football!

  11. I can’t even believe there is a Poop Report. I will have to hide (or show) the site to my 11 and 8 year old boys. You may be struggling with potty training now, but just think, in a few short years you’ll be able to share all this potty humor with those you love. My boys love that I don’t flip out about a bit of potty humor.

    And…living in Pittsburgh and being a convert Steeler fan, since I grew up in Cleveland, it was good to see that we may actually perform this year.

  12. Multiple football drafts? Dude, you are so lucky. I used to run a fantasy football league. Then I had kids. I just can’t make the time to focus on it anymore, but my husband still does.

  13. Duct tape him to the toilet? No clue, sorry.

    I love football. I’m moving back to Denver and I’m thrilled, because I heart the Broncos.

  14. I started potty training my daughter on Tuesday with a tip to let her run bare bottom for a few weeks. By Friday she was wearing panties and today was the first day we didn’t have an accident. I could be extremely lucky or maybe tip is a sure thing for most people, but it’s been less then one week and my trash can is thanking me for putting only the two diapers a day I put in it (nap and night time).

  15. I’m also looking for advice….we went through 6 pairs of underwear today!!….

    Frustrating after 2 dry months!

  16. lucky me, Najeh plays for us now (I live in Green Bay where it is always football season)

    As for potty training, I repeatedly told my boys they weren’t old enough, I don’t care who else is doing it, they weren’t big boys yet. After about a month of them questioning why they couldn’t potty train, I put them in underwear. It took about 3 days to train each of them. They were each about two weeks from turning three.

  17. Julia – yay! I’m a Packer Backer (grew up in Merrill, WI and have relatives in/near GB).

    It just always seems weird to hear of someone else from that state. (Did you know there are others that live there as well? News flash to me, apparently.)

    I’m about to train the three girls. Or they’re going to train me in carpet cleaning. Either way, someone’s getting trained. Thanks everyone for the tips of nakedness – I bet it’ll work for us! They’re just over 2-1/2.

  18. Sarah – (My email account can’t reply because it’s so podunk!) I have NO clue why he won’t retire! I was kinda wondering the same thing. I think it’s because he enjoys the game too much, and he’s still better than most of the QBs out there, just not even close to as good as he WAS :)
