Best of both worlds
I heart this so much I can't stand it

Texans QB has his son doing math at a press conference. Pure awesomeness. Jock with brains - I can dig it.

RE: Best of both worlds
That's definitely an encouraging sign, Nurse.

If I may, I'd like to add a bit of context in terms of the Texans quarterback (Ryan Fitzpatrick). He played college football at Harvard, which indicates that academics are likely a high priority. Even though Harvard and the rest of the Ivy League compete at the highest level of college football (Division-1), these schools do not grant athletic scholarships. So Ryan Fitzpatrick was admitted and graduated from Harvard based on academic rather than football performance. Given these facts, it's apt that his son was concentrating on his homework rather than his Father's press conference.

Great to see!
