What planet does this kid live on?

My husband is a huge Pittsburgh Steelers fan. Everyone who knows him knows this. Especially my kids. (I'm the Dallas fan). Evey year around the time the pro-bowl comes to Hawaii the teen center has some of the players come out to the post and hold a football clinic. Every year my son goes. Every year he says one of the Steelers was here, some old guy I don't know who he was. This year he went and told my husband a couple of Steelers guys were there. Who? He doesn't know their names. Not unusual, he never knows their names A few days ago I am reading the AMR newsletter and it has an article about the clinic. I say "Brandon did you know Chris Fuamatu-Ma'afala was at the football clinic?" "Oh you mean Mr. Chris?" I said "Mr. Chris?" "Who is Mr. Chris?" He said "He's the athletic Director here at AMR since Mr. Brandon retired." "You mean Mr. Chris is Fu from the Steelers?" Brandon said "Yah, if you go up to the center to sign up the kids for sports that's who you will see." "Gee and you didn't think to tell your dad." "About who?' "Chris Fuamatu-Ma'afala that's who." "No you can see him anytime you want, just ask for Mr. Chris." "Okay just don't forget to tell me if Mr. Terrell ever shows up at the teen center." You know Terrell Owens, pro-bowler, Dallas Cowboys.

That is so funny. That is the difference between kids and adults...fame doesnt matter to them.
