writer, Andrew Leonard, recently shared his experience of bringing his 12 year old son to BlizzCon – effectively passing on the geek torch to his kid.

Leonard touches on all the topics we here at 8BitDad love to read about – games, action figures, cosplay, and (of course) geeking-out with your kid. He even throws in a mention of the Magnavox Odyssey! The article culminates with Leonard and Eli visiting Leonard’s mother in a nursing home, and then going to her old house to pack up her personal belongings. Leonard talks about how he grew up geek, and how he’s proud to see his son doing the same.

I’ll admit, I teared-up a little. Thanks Andrew, I love getting emotional and vulnerable in the morning, jerk!
