Nate, the star athlete at age 16. Isn't it sad that I didn't know him then? Tragic, really!

We're a pretty big sports family here in the Day household. Both Nate and his dad got football scholarships to play in college, and even one-year-old Some Boy constantly gets comments from strangers at the grocery store, “That kid's a truck! I bet he'll be a linebacker some day.” You have no idea. I will never forget the day Nate announced to me, “Guess what?! I'm a video game character!” That's right, his college football team was digitalized into one of the early NCAA Football video games. And I must say, the likeness was pretty uncanny.

NCAA You're Covered

NCAA Football 13

EA Sports is at it again this year with NCAA Football 13! This year's version has all sorts of fun new features like the Heisman Challenge, live studio updates in Dynamic Dynasty mode, enhanced receiver control and greater on field awareness. Plus, gamers can use the EA You're Covered Program to create a customized NCAA Football 13 game cover featuring themselves or their kids! Can you imagine giving your kid a new video game with their face on the cover in the body of one of their favorite players? I gave it a whirl with Some Boy, above. This officially makes him the buffest little football baby I've ever seen.
