Of course, maybe the beer belonged to the kid and he had just given his dad a sip.

And no, he wasn't a midget either.

The kid will probably make a great referee when he grows up.
Hey, I watch Comcast and WGN enough to know the reason you watch is for the crowd shots. They might show the occasional kid, but you can pretty much tell the camera operators are male.

Do you remember the recent story about the U of M professor that took his kid to a Tigers game, bought the kid a lemonade, and got arrested and his kid taken away for a time? Apparently the professor wasn't aware Mike's Lemonade had alcohol in it. The sign at the concession stand said only Mike's Lemonade, along with Beer and Hot Dogs. The cops thought it was an honest mistake, but DCFS had to "do their job". The kid may turn out to be a good ref, but, come to think of it, I've never known a DCFS worker to be a good ref... (careful, M&M...)
