“Right now, my sons are in that stage, you know that horrible stage: organized sports. Talk about f*****g up a girl’s weekend. I’m pretty much praying that neither of them succeeds at anything. It’s like, ‘No, I don’t really want to get in an RV and go to Bakersfield with the soccer team. No, I don’t. I hope you lose. I really do.’ ” — Heather McDonald on I Don’t Mean to Brag
