How about jaw breakers for when you need to bite your tongue.., a small hand towel for all the blood, sweat and tears, and preparation H for all those long hours of sitting on the hard stands?

Sports Survival Kits

eh he he he!! Loved the Preparation H suggestion! Those stadium seats really are a pain in the behind!!

Here's some more ideas:

A can of nuts---you've got to be nutty to go to the games in bad weather!

Hershey kisses---for the sweet victory after losing so many games!

Candy Lifesavers--for those days when your team can't seem to win no matter what.

Erasers--to erase those fouls your team keeps making.

Bandaids--to heal the hurt of a disappointing season or game.

Toothpicks--to remind you not to pick on the opposing team..just cheer for yours!

Marbles--for when you think your spouse has finally lost of his!

A cotton ball--for the rough trips and seats!

A fan--to keep your cool when your team's not winning.

a button-- to button your lip and count to 10 when you're angry.

Father's Day? name is Amanda. I'm 15 years old. I'm trying to figure out a little dilema I'm having about Father's Day. This guy named Mike has been a really good friend of my family's for about three and a half years now, and I love him as if he were my father(I grew up with a stepfather, who is now divorced from my mother, and have never met my real father), and I wish he was my father. I have been "driving myself crazy" trying to figure out if I should send him a card or anything for Father's Day, or if it would just be "weird"? He's been more of a father to me these past three years than anyone else ever has(and that includes my step father!), and he loves me as if I was his own daughter(he has no kids of his own). Any ideas would be appreciated!

To the world, you may be one person; but to one person, you may be the world. Never frown, even when you are sad, because you never know who is falling in love with your smile.

I think that would be sooo sweet ...Not at all weird! If he's been a father figure to you and you love him that much. I think he'd appreciate knowing how you feel.
Have a good one! Wild

Well, a couple weeks ago I sent Mike an email and explained to him how I feel, he sent me a reply back but it really wasn't what I expected...I think he was just at a loss for words
One reason I am kind of cautious about giving him a card or something is because after my mom and my stepfather split up(oct '99), the following father's day I gave Steve a "You're like a Father to Me" card, and he basically kind of scoffed at it and really hurt my feelings. I really don't think Mike would do that to me, but it still makes me cautious...

To the world you may be one person, but to one person you may be the world.
