I think it’s only been in the last year that I’ve discovered that YouTube is much more than videos of old sporting events or tv shows.  The entire “vlog” concept is a new discovery. So late last year my kid started watching these shows with kids who test out Nerf blasters and do little skits and storylines: extreme toys and the twin toys.

From there, we both love LEGO so we started watching some LEGO channels where guys build and review new sets and go to Target and Walmart and look for deals- there’s Brickitect, and MandR Productions, Jang Bricks, and Beyond the Brick.

Also we love baseball and started watching this cat named Zach Hample. He’s a ballhawk and goes to all the MLB parks and tries to catch balls in batting practice and during the game.  He also kinda gives a stadium tour too.  Fun channel, but he can grate on you a bit.

Last one-  recently started watching guys that open baseball cards.  JABS family is one channel.  He takes trips to the flea market, card shops, etc and tries to score deals.  The he opens the packs.  Watched him open packs of 1987 Topps for an hour the other night.  Wife came down and said WTF are you watching?  I said, “we’re trying to find the McGwire rookie!”  She told me to be productive and watch Pornhub or something.*
