My husband and I love Sports Radio. If you're in the DC area, 106.7 the Fan is seriously the best. For those of you who don't know, the husband is a loyal Redskins fan. And if you know anything about the Redskins, you know why this is such a big deal. Because (sorry Chris) this particular team has sucked big time for many, many years. You need loyal fans with a record like that. In fact, our very first date was a Redskins (his) vs. Packers (hers) game at FedEx Field where the Redskins lost. But back to the radio station. One of the show hosts has an obsession with food usually designated do I say this...toddlers in Middle America. Hot dogs. Mac and cheese from a box. Ice cream. Long story short this particular host's "Kids eat like kings!" statement is usually quoted when the husband and I look at each other and head out for burgers.  

And in terms of summer, kids kind of do eat like kings. Popsicles ahoy!
