Wil, This took post took me back to the late 90's when I spent much of my weekend nights shuffling my son and his friends to and from the game store to play, you guessed it, Magic, the Gathering. As a single mom, we didn't have much extra money, but a lot of it went to buy cards for my sons decks, which I think he still has. I have to say that I don't regret those nights of driving in the Arizona heat with no air conditioning at all because I knew where he was, who he was with and what he was doing. How many parents of teenagers can actually say that? Besides he turned out just great!. Thanks for bringing back the memories to me.

Wil, I've been reading your blog for a while now and I just had to comment on this post as a mom. Back in the late 90's I was the mom of a young boy who was, shall we say, "looking for his place in this world". Well he found Magic, The Gathering. I cannot tell you how many nights I spent driving him to and from the game shop to play. Picking him up on Friday and Saturday nights after midnight. All when he was 12, 13, 14 years old. I can only say this. I knew where he was, who he was with and what he was doing. He is now a very well adjusted 20 something with a good head and a loving heart and I don't regret any of those late nights in Phoenix in a car with no air conditioning. This really took me back, in a very good way. Thanks.
