We took the little man to our alma mater, the University of Idaho, to watch their football home opener. And this is Mrs. Shife and Baby Shife getting ready to get their tailgate on.

The Shifleys enjoying some football action.

Game over and the Idaho Vandals win so they come over and sing the fight song to the fans. Probably my favorite picture of the day because of the look on Baby Shife's face. He looks shocked that our team won the game. And to be honest I was a little shocked they won too.

Confessions of a Dumb, White Guy - Blogged


  1. Hey, dude, we just got a Basset Hound last week; she is gorgeous!

    And love the personals interpretations; thank god I am out of hte game so I don't even have to try to find the hidden meaning!

  2. LOVE IT! I gotta get The Husband reading your blog.

    I love the second picture, awesome! And tell Mrs. Shife that she looks great to have such a young one.

  3. Ha! I loved the personals meanings so much that I had to print them out. "Unusual hair growth on ears nose and back" reminds me of my 7th grade English teacher. Yikes.

    The Shife family looks good and happy. Lucky you!

  4. Oh my, I should have read this first thing in the morning. It would have set me up for a day in the office. Loved the interpretation of young at heart... haha say no more, woman, you'll give the game away.
    I left a return comment on my blog begging for a fix on the day of the BIG EVENT. I meant a fix of baby Shife, what else could I possibly mean lol. Mrs Shife is lovely, by the way. Lovely family altogether.

  5. Ugh. The dating scene. Don't miss that at all. "Hi. Wanna touch my penis?" UH, no I was just thinking meet for a beer."Okay, well then you can touch my penis after I buy you a beer." Replace with any topic, rinse, repeat. Bleah.

    I just vanquished Twitter from my blog and put my Twitter settings to private so I wouldn't get any more porn spammers. I think you kept getting a prompt for username and password because of the twitter feed. It shouldn't happen anymore. If it does, let me know.

    Handsome family ;-) Baby Shife looks like he is singing along in that bottom pic. CUTE!

  6. he's a real cutie and i hope for everybody's sake he enjoys sports as much as ma and pa

  7. The second picture looks like either you're about to throw him on the field, or he's just surprised to be there. Either way, he's still cute as hell.

  8. i think all those ads should end with caveat emptor.

  9. Spot on with the abbreviations. Absolutely SPOT ON.

    Hang in there, Lil Shife!

  10. First off the smurfs are amazing!

    Secondly these are really funny I laughed out loud at a few of them

    third- Great picture! GO VANDALS!! Finish the job Purdue couldn't please

  11. Now this is hysterical...just coming back from vacation as a single mama with my two girls and can I tell you how so not looking forward to dating I am? seriously? gives me the jeevies.... Baby Shife is just gorgeous and just coming into his favorite time..when they are about 9 months you can absolutely tell what their personalities will be like and the Mrs. is beautiful too....

  12. 2 picture is so lovely, Love it
