First off, this doesn't have to be a sports related post and your comments don't have to be sports related. I'd truly like to know how you're spending this Father's Day. Secondly, you don't even have to be a dad to comment.
My daughters have moved on to lives of their own. One is married with two young children and will be spending this Father's Day with her husband, the father of her children. My youngest daughter just moved to Dayton, Ohio within the last week, taking the big leap on her life's journey. I did get two wonderful phone calls today.
But today is still the U.S. Open golf tournament, which I always enjoy watching, although I'd enjoy it much more if Lefty were actually in contention. Mixed in with watching that I will be watching the Nascar race from Michigan, where the #43 is starting 4th? I'd take a Petty blue car in victory lane for a Father's day gift...that would be awesome. Then every four years the World Cup happens. So I'll be keeping an eye on that a little today since the U.S. isn't playing until tomorrow. Too bad a good U.S. team is in the Group of Death but, hey, if you want to be the best, what better way to start than beating a couple of the best.
The Red Sox, who have been playing better of late during their roller coaster, less than good season, will be playing this afternoon. Very few things are better on Father's Day than watching the Sox. Then tonight is game 6 of the NBA Finals with the Spurs leading 3 games to 1. I will peek in on that a little tonight.
I hope you all have a great Father's Day, enjoying it in whatever way you like best.
