    Gotta Brag a Bit

    My cousin Kim has three boys, all of whom are amazing athletes. A few months ago her youngest played in the Pop Warner Football National Championship. They lost, unfortunately, but still had a great season to get to the Super Bowl of their league.

    This weekend was the middle son's turn. Here's a pic of Brady clowning around at home that Kim posted on Facebook a couple of months ago:



    And here are a couple of pics she posted of him winning the Gold Medal for his age group (12) in the US Junior Olympics in Portland this weekend:





    He competed in 8 events and placed 10th overall, but the Gold on the rings was definitely the highlight. His nickname is "Beast" and it's well-deserved. I won't be surprised to see him on the US team in the 2020 Olympics.

    btw, I often stretch each morning like that, doing a handstand between the kitchen counters.

    You and me both, brother. You and me both. And I don't cheat by touching the ceiling with my feet, either.

    Looks like they'll need to get shorter counters if he gets any taller.

    That is a great brag and worthy.

    You should be proud. That is a lot of hard work. Hope he makes the Olympics, be fun to watch some on that you at least have an idea of where they originated from.
