Happy Father’s Day!
I woke up in a mild panic last night (Saturday) when I realized that it was Father’s Day Eve and I had no material. For a fathering organization, that would be pretty lame.
I hadn’t written because I really didn’t have anything profound to say, and there really isn’t anything major going on in the sports world now. The biggest sporting event on right now is the NBA Finals …
Then it hit me. What a crazy 2013 Finals, huh? You have a pretty tight Game 1 and an epic blowout in Game 3 for the Spurs, and two wins going away for the Heat in Games 2 and 4. Back and forth, who’s gonna blink first? The good news if you’re a Spurs fan is that they can afford to trade wins all the way through Game 7.
I didn’t predict the series initially, but I will now. The series is over tonight. The Game 5 winner will win the 2013 Finals. The Heat won’t win back to back Games 6 and 7, and the Spurs won’t steal two more in Miami.
Thinking about the series late last night got me to thinking about life as a dad. It’s fun. It’s awesome. It’s my favorite thing in the world. And, it can be crazy. Especially with 3 boys like mine.
I love being the dad to 3 boys because it reminds me of one of my all-time favorite TV shows, “Home Improvement.” Although I don’t quite live up to the persona of Tim “The Tool Man” Taylor, my house is a lot like that show. Crazy. And fun.
Enjoy the crazy fatherhood ride. It’s like that first ride on a roller coaster when you never know where you’re going next. It’s like “Home Improvement.” And it’s like a crazy NBA Finals.
And enjoy Game 5, because that’ll be it for the 2013 NBA.
And speaking of the Finals, thanks to my 3 awesome sons for hooking me up for Game 5 tonight! Thanks guys and let’s go Heat!
