…..my pursuit of Olympic fencing gold….
My opponent: My little brother Jeff. Jeffy is a challenged 18 year old with a penchant for Zelda and Link Nintendo games. So…imagine his delight when these exquisitely crafted replicas turned up at a local fair.
My strategy: Feign losing my sword, lure him in close, grab the back up sword, and claim a quick victory! (On a side note…although I've never been accused of acting like I have a stick up my butt; I guess I won't be able to deny any future accusations.)
The execution: going well here…lost the sword. Ho! Haha! Guard! Dodge! Spin! Perry! Ha! Thrust!
(If you don't know what that line is from…I'm not sure you can claim American citizenship.)
OK…so those of you not properly versed in Warner Brothers cartoons growing up, click here…
A slight change of plan here; let him have his victory photo…
OK… so maybe that didn't work so well. Doesn't look like I'll be winning any floor exercise medals any time soon either. Maybe the US curling team is looking for some new talent… Vancouver in 2010 baby!
Jeffy is the cutest little guy in the WHOOOOOOOOLE world!
What does feign mean? You’re too smart for me Mikey.
Nice bed head!
ANNNND last but not least, I don’t think I’m an American… what’s that from?!
Please still love me!!!!!!!!!!! 😉

This is freaking hilarious. Bobbi, you know I love you… but yes, the readers would LOVE to hear from Mike more often. Especially stories involving gladiator style heroism. Pimp. haha.
Hey Mikey — you need to get out the Looney Tunes cds and give Bobbi some Daffy Duck lessons. Jeff will love these pics. Love you guys whole bunches.
First of all, Mikey –
You need to start writing on this blog more often. I Loved, loved, loved this post.
Second – You have a nice ass.
Third – you and your brother are hilarious
fourth – You have some sick tricks with your jumps yo.
fifth – Bobbi – I love you, cause you captured your husband perfectly.
ummm…I can’t count any higher than that…so I’ll stop at five.
Love you both
So I took a leap of faith today and quit my job to pursue my photography full time, and I was really scared and worried that I might have made a huge mistake. The fear was setting in and I came to the Bobbi+Mike blog, and literally laughed out loud. Suddenly, everything looks different. That’s why I love you guys! 😀
LOVE the last picture. so fun!
Loved the post. I love the sabotage during the victory photo…nice.
okay, so, these are HILARIOUS! The Zelda thing is sooooo Jeff! And yes, Mik eyou really should post on here more often! Love to you both!
Mike, you and Jeffy are absolutely adorable. The constant show of love in your family is truly inspiring.
This post is hysterical!! I love reading the comments just as much as the post itself…Dennis, too funny!!!! This post made my day! 🙂
You guys are so silly!
Been thinking about you guys, hope your summer is going well! I’d love to catch up when things slow down…do they ever for you?!?! HA!
p.s. Did you really take a pic with my husband at the Indian’s game???
Shelly… yes, I did 😀 I’ll email it to you. He’s just SO cute I couldn’t resist!!!!!!
I want Mikey to come jump around my yard with a sword so I can get a picture of him JUST LIKE the one where he’s in mid-air, and Jeff is just standing there oblivious. LOVE IT!!! ROFL

And I agree, Mike has a nice patooch.
You crack me up. I hope you were able to get back to work after the butt kicking Jeffy gave you. I love you.
