Sunday Question

Happy Father's Day to all the dads out there who read our blog!

In honor of the day our question of the week will involve your father. Typically in a family the father is the sports oriented parent who teaches you how to play ball, whatever the sport may be, or maybe just got you into watching sports or collecting cards. Maybe it wasn't your dad who did it, maybe it was your grandfather or an uncle.

My question is: What is your favorite memory with your dad growing up? Age isn't a big factor in the question so if it was later in life seeing a no hitter or a World Series game together, we would still love to hear it.

Drop us a note then go back to hanging with your kids, your dad, or both and enjoy your day. =)


  1. Seeing my dad the day I graduated college. I was the first in my family to do so and I'll never forget the look on his face when he saw me in my cap and gown.

  2. Mine was from a fishing trip we took when I was about 12. Usually my mom and brother came along but the one time it was just me an dad.

    My fondest memory of my Great Grandfather was a fishing trip too. I used to go fishing with my grandparents in Florida all the time. One day my Great Grandfather asked me to go with him. I had never been fishing with him before and when we went out we caught a ton of fish. More than I ever caught at one time before.

  3. My favorite memory is when he helped coach my little league team for a couple of years.

  4. favorite memories - fixing stuff around the house or doing electronics projects.

    My dad didn't teach me squat about sports (he's a PBS guy, not a sports guy) so I"m the one that became the only sports freak in the family by scrounging up a large backyard sat dish while I was still in high school in order to watch more sports than were available over-the-air on broadcast networks.

    Luckily, outside of NOVA and great Ken Burns documentaries, he didn't convert me to a PBS kid. ;)

  5. I'm sure my dad taught me how to play baseball, but I really can't remember him doing so.

    I do remember playing catch with him, which he did with my brothers, too. A very simple activity, but that sums up my dad. He was never a "big event" guy.

  6. Sports were about the only "safe" area where me and Dad could talk freely and he actually respected my opinion...
