With Father’s Day going on, like many other Holidays we are choosing to not post unless there is breaking news for the majority of the day. We often look at sports as a distraction from the stresses of life but today for many men this is an exciting day. To be distracted from that would not be our goal. For other men, and some women, this day brings up memories that they would prefer not to think about.
For both we want to encourage you to focus on the positives of the men in your lives and for the Father’s out there the men that you are. Sports often are passed down by fathers to sons. It is an opportunity for them to pass on their passion, and craziness, that has formed much of the down time in their lives. For Cleveland sports fans this has been a life time passion. The Browns, Indians, and Cavaliers have captured the heart of Clevelandars and hasn’t let go.
For many of you your first thoughts of sports is with your father, or the one who provided the father figure in your life. You remember holding the boxscore at Municipal Stadium, watching Mark Price shoot pure foul shots and praying the Browns wouldn’t get beat again in horrific fashion. Those memories, those events brought you together with the father figure of your life. It gives a smell, a sound, a vision and a experience that you can never forget.
Today, on Father’s Day, we salute those men who, know matter the relationship, provided our need for a father. We celebrate the bond that often was brought together through sports. And we thank the sports we love for bring us together and giving us stuff to talk to our fathers about.
To all fathers “Happy Father’s Day” and Go Cleveland.!
