Apple Cup: 11-year-old pens adorable WSU football poem

"Crimson feels like me."

One of the best things about being a parent is sharing the things that are important to you with your children. One of my favorite moments of my life was the first time one of my boys said, "Go Cougs," followed closely by that time my son sobbed after we crapped away the Rutgers game.

No, I was not happy my son was crying; there was just something about watching him truly experience Cougdom for the first time. Family!

Which brings us to perhaps the most adorable thing you will see during this entire Apple Cup week.

I don't know about you, but I got just a little emotional when I got to the line, "Crimson feels like me."

Me too, Isaac. Me too.

Since I'm a bona fide English teacher by day, I'm giving you an A+++++++++, which isn't a real grade, but I don't care. I'm the teacher, I make up the rules, and you're awesome.

And to Scott, whom I have never met but now fully approve of as a parent: Congratulations. You have raised your child well.

Go Cougs!
