1. Tyzik's son is a home-team supremacist. 

Once we invited a couple from church over to our house for the first time, to watch a Bears game. At the time my son was 3 or 4, and would refer to the teams by their jersey color. Well, that day they were playing the Falcons, and the Bears were in white. A few minutes into the game, my son wanders up to me and quietly asks "Which one is Bears?" I told him it was the white team. To which he then shouts out "Yeah, we cheer for the white guys, because we don't like black guys, right Dad?"

I had to awkwardly say "Yes, the Falcons are wearing black, and today we do not like them because they're against the Bears."

Everyone laughed a bit, but there were some side glances.
