Well, we had some this year.
And not all of it (ahem) from the males in my family.
The thing is, it was just really, really fun.
And I have been short on fun in the last five years of my life.
My kids were wowed by Jimmer's skills, but the thing that charmed me was his boyishness. Really. You could tell this kid was having a blast, all the time. And I loved his openness with his emotions.
It made it easier for us to live the whole thing vicariously through him--yeah, he was insanely talented, but he was just a normal kid, just like us.
And, oh yeah, it was fun being a fan.
