Reed Doughty Assembles Part Of ‘The Avengers’ At Home

Pictured above, are Reed Doughty’s two children dressed up as Marvel super heroes, Captain America and Thor.  Not quite as ferocious as the originals, but pretty impressive.

This picture was tweeted by Doughty this morning, along with a happy birthday message to his son, Micah.  Micah is 5 years old today, and got exactly what he wanted in a Razor scooter.

“Well, we did 6:30 a.m. presents, of course,” Doughty said after practice.  “We’re always up by 6:30–or before 6:30–so we did presents then.”

Ouch.

“I’m gonna go home and play with the remote controlled cars, and maybe ride the Razor Scooter around,” Doughty continued.  “He wanted a scooter, and he’s really excited for it.”

This is the same son that was born with kidney failure in 2006.  He had a transplant three and one-half years ago now, and is pretty much your average 5-year-old.

“Most of it’s behind him now,” Doughty said with relief.  “He’s doing phenomenal, going to preschool, excited for his birthday, and doing all of the fun stuff that 5-year-olds do.  Y’know, he’s got his normal checkups and medicine, and stuff like that, but he’s doing great.”

Does Micah have the same physical prowess that his father has on the gridiron? Read more »
