Nomar, What If Your Boy Wants to Become a Hairdresser?

From an AP article about Nomar Garciaparra and Mia Hamm's efforts on behalf of the National Marrow Donor Program:

With an obvious soccer mom and baseball dad, what sport will their children favor? Said Garciaparra: "That will be entirely up to them."

Bravo, Nomar. Glad to hear you're not planning to go all Marv Marinovich on your kids.

Then again, how difficult can it be to avoid living vicariously through your children when both you and your wife have excelled at the highest levels of your chosen professions? All parents should be so lucky.
