Stay-at-home dad to start on Sunday

As a stay-at-home dad blogger I feel obligated to blog about a stay-at-home dad who gets to play in the NFL.

The Associated Press in Charlotte, North Carolina reported yesterday that the Carolina Panthers have names Brian St. Pierre their starting quarterback for their game this Sunday against the Baltimore Ravens.

Panthers to start QB Brian St. Pierre
"Brian St. Pierre has thrown five passes in eight NFL seasons. He wasn't in a training camp this summer and as recent as last week was a stay-at-home dad."

"St. Pierre, who had last practiced in January as he finished a stint with Arizona, was spending his days taking care of his 18-month-old son in the Boston area and doing some television work when he was signed to the practice squad on Friday. He was promoted to the active roster Tuesday."

May the power of all the stay-at-home dads from around the country who like to toss the pigskin around in the backyard with their kids be with you. Although many of us have dreamed of playing in the NFL, I am not jealous that Brian will be getting tackled by Ray Lewis.

Brian St. Pierre being the starting QB for the Panthers does not help my prediction in the fantasy football post yesterday that Steve Smith would have a productive last seven weeks.

Best wishes to you Brian! When I am not following the Packers/Vikings game this weekend I will check in your health and play.
