The Celtic Warrior: Vampires Beware

Some little boys dream of becoming police officers. Some want to be firemen. Others aspire to be like their own fathers. My son, however, idolizes a pasty white, mostly hairless, spandex wearing Irishman with a lisp. Based on that cross around his neck I'd say it's safe to assume that he's a Vampire Hunter as well as a WWE Wrestler. Now that I think of it the Vampire Hunter aspect of his job explains his pasty complexion. Because of this I'm not going to mock him and mention his lack of tan. Honestly, I prefer not to speculate where society would be if we didn't have quality Vampire Hunters.

Before we move on I'd like to share a little more about the man my son hopes to become one day. Shaemus comes from a long line of Celtic Warriors and he's here to set straight some of the misconceptions that many of us have about Irish tradition.  As many of you have probably already realized, the Irish have suffered greatly due to the misconceptions about their culture. Many are under the impression that Ireland is all about politics and war and drinking, but really it's about respect and honor. Which explains Shaemus choice of work and attire. Shaemus is also deeply religious. He eats a cross a day. Sort of a spiritual vitamin if you would.

As a mother, I couldn't be prouder of my son's decision to model his life after Shaemus. Really how many people can say that they overcame being a 6'6" redhead with an Irish accent and a lisp to beat up other people? It's the American dream and every time Anthony rips his shirt off and beats his own chest in an attempt to emulate him a tear falls from my eye and a piece of my soul dies.

Keep striving little buddy. Before you know it your hair will be long enough to style like Kid N Play Shaemus' and that chocolate your covered in will be another man's blood.

God help me. I think I might need to eat a cross to get through this one.

Honestly i hated Sheamus at first, but since it's Anthony's favorite wrestler, i have hated him a little less lately.

Tell Anthony that Sheamus wouldn't cry during sponge bob though.

SEE YOU TONIGHT! Hamburgers on the grill sounds about right. lol

it could be worse...um, I got nothin'. No wait! It could be your daughter that aspires to be a 6 foot tall, nearly naked irishman with a lisp! See? There's always a silver lining!

I guess I'm glad that this guy will never have concerns about skin cancer?

Clearly, he hasn't seen the son in years.

It will work. In about 20 years from now my son will be a big mean wrestler who is going to Main Event Wrestlemania 46. Mark it down cause I just went there!

This is just too funny! I wonder if this guy also does the "traditional" Riverdance style dancing?

Amanda said...

Aim high, little man! Aim high! I'm sure someday the amount of crosses that need to be eaten will be more than one man can bear.

The WWE came to my town last Friday. For real. And my husband went to see it.

I don't think he wants to BE a wrestler though...
So that's a relief.

Excuse me, Bethany (take note that I'm using your Christian name), but what is wrong with pasty white? hmmm?
