Lee Jeans, Ballet, Tailgating, and Dropping the Ball On Deadlines

So here's the thing. This post is sponsored. Well, it was sponsored. It is for a brand I love, Lee Jeans. Generally I am the one that pays Lee Jeans to wear their jeans, but when I was selected to write about football, Mike and Mike in the morning, and Lee Jeans... AND get paid, I was pretty stoked. This post was due a week ago. Oops.

My Lee Jeans. Well, one of 4 pairs I own.
This is actually the second time I have written this post. The first one was accidentally deleted. I found this out while out of town. Oops again. By the time I got home I had missed the whole campaign. I know. I know. Get it together John. You're a professional. Thanks voice in my head. 

So yeah. I suck lately. I missed the boat on this one. Do you know what doesn't suck at all, in fact, are the opposite? Lee Jeans. Really. I am wearing them right now. (See photo above.) They're a good, affordable brand and they deserved an on time post from me. Know what else doesn't suck? Tailgating. And the Green Bay Packers, who, as of last Sunday, are 2-0 on the season. They play tonight on Monday Night Football. I won't be watching most of that game either. Know what I am currently watching? 

Yep. I'm writing this at ballet practice. 

Mind if tell you what I love about Lee Jeans? If you have read this far I am assuming you don't. They fit and they are comfortable. Yep. I know that may sound like a pretty low bar, but I am a short and round man and finding jeans that fit and are comfortable is not an easy task. For a long time I was wearing another brand that starts with an L and are not nearly as comfortable. Then I found Lee Jeans.

OK, let's talk about tailgating now. This post originally involved tailgating. My two favorite sports radio guys, Mike and Mike have been going head to head in a series of videos for Lee Jeans. I had a whole piece written about how my dream is to go tailgate at Lambeau. 

I used to love tailgating. I used to show up to football games three hours early, cook delicious things on hot grills. We would grab ice cold beers out of ice cold coolers. I would dream of someday tailgating at Lambeau. Greeny is right. Lambeau is the promised land for tailgaters, or so I have heard. In my imagination it is like the scene in Charlie and the Chocolate Factory where Gene Wilder first opens the door to the candy world, only instead of candy it is beer and bratwurst and green and gold as far as the eye can see. That is what I used to dream of. I didn't dream of ballet practice. I should have.

My daughter is currently jumping in between first and second position. She explained to me what these things are a few weeks ago. We spent fifteen minutes in the living room as she chirped "first! second! first! second! Good job daddy!" 

I was wearing Lee Jeans. 

I probably wouldn't recommend performing Swan Lake in its entirety in Lee Jeans, but jumping between first and second position with your daughter really highlights the Active Comfort Denim that accompanies the Modern Series and Premium Select jeans.

I know this seems disjointed. I am a bit frazzled lately. Tomorrow night is gymnastics. I also just started a new job. The blog is behind. I miss you guys. Life is good. Tailgating is good. Lee Jeans are very comfortable.

Disclosure: I have partnered with Life of Dad and Lee Jeans for this promotion.  I have received compensation for my participation, but my thoughts are my own.

  1. I love the fact that you practice ballet with your daughter! As a father of two daughters, I have done the same. I have spent lots of time watching dance, softball, soccer and many other practices. I love your blog!
