I am more of an 85 Bears fan, we havent had a great deal to cheer for recently (and by "recently" I mean, since about 1993!!)Appreciate the welcome (even if you are a Bears fan)
My son got exposed to Pokémon cards from his after school karate class, after that I showed him all the old cards I had and he was hooked on both. Now he'll get a pack of his and I'll get a pack of mine and open them together. It's pretty awesome and I likely wouldn't have ever gotten back in it again if it wasn't for him.
So cool that is how it worked out for you guys, and also that your son studies Karate, my son is 8 and loves it!!
