In the year 2000, a single father from Chicago, Jeff Siegel, and his seven-year-old son, Spence, embarked on a spur-of-the-moment vacation that took them across the southwestern tier of National Basketball Association arenas.
Shortly thereafter, Jeff began formulating a grandiose plan: he and Spence would visit every NBA arena — as well as every Major League Baseball park — across the United States. What started as a series of hilarious road games and unexpected detours quickly took on a serious subtext. “Spence and I grew closer than ever,” Jeff beams, “and it all goes back to my secret weapon as a Dad: the open road.”
Now, Jeff is taking his show on the road and sharing with audiences of all shapes and sizes how they, too, can use this simple idea to create a stronger relationship with their son or daughter than they ever dreamed possible.
