Lil Ron Washington *UPDATED*

When I stepped out of the gym at 10:30 this morning, my son was famous. It was all because of this photo:
Liam wanted to be Ron Washington for Halloween. It was a super easy costume. He already had the brown skin and glasses. He wore his baseball uniform with a Rangers tee. I only had to find him a mustache, since he can't grow his own quite yet. And his hair...yes, that is his hair shaved with a bald spot.

Lil Washington made his debut at our church's fall festival last night, and Liam was followed around like the paparazzi. Everyone wanted to take his picture and give him a high five.

Rick and I both posted the above photo on our Facebook pages last night. When we woke up this morning, we had no idea what was about to take place as a result of that simple pic. Rick went to work. I took the boys to school and went to the gym; it was a normal Thursday.

But by the time I finished my workout, Rick was frantically trying to call me. Fox 4 News wanted to interview Liam!!!

And interview him, they did.
He was nervous and quiet at first. Of all times to be shy! There's not a shy bone in his body, but the camera made him nearly mute.

Until we pulled out the sunflower seeds.
Then, he was his goofy self while I was interviewed. Who me? Nervous? Umm, yes!
Liam really enjoyed showing off his do.
And the claw.
You can see our interview here.

We're also appearing live on Good Day at 8:20 in the morning. Fox Sports Southwest wants to see us on Monday. As if three interviews isn't mind-blowing enough, Liam's picture has been plastered all over blogs and websites all day long. Seriously...Yahoo sports, Fox Sports, ESPN, DMagazine, Texas A&M, and the list goes on.... This is amazing!

Never in a million years would I have guessed that a Halloween costume would go "viral" online, but we are all enjoying Liam's fifteen minutes of fame.

Now, if our Rangers could only pull a win in this World Series.

Today's live interview at Good Day can be seen here.
