Necessary Roughness : The Father-Son dinner was on Saturday. For the wildest of moments, I imagined I'd ask Abogee to come with me, and he'd say, "Son, I'd be proud to. When is it?" But then I realized that was only an episode of the sitcom in my head, The Lovingly Wacky Kim Family, which had absolutely no bearing on reality. For starters, Abogee would never call me "son." And could you imagine what he's be like at a football dinner? He'd probably go around spouting his favorite anti-football says. "Anyone can build muscle, but building brain is more difficult." "Football is so popular in this country because it provides people with an excuse to drink beer.' "In Korea, grown men would not waste their time fighting each other over a tiny ball." Uh-uh. SC, 228 pages.
