Thank you, Dad

19 Jun

It’s Father’s Day y’all.  Today is a day to hang out with the old man, have a game of catch, and tell him “thanks, dude.”

Here are some reasons you should thank your dad today.

1.) He has had to put up with your mom for WAY longer than you have.

He's been in the "doghouse" more times than your dog.

2.) He chose your favorite sports teams for you before you were even born.

America's team

3.)  He will always be more badass than you.

Hittin the weights bro?

4.) Your dad made it to your age without the internet, laptops, gps, Blu-Ray, or even digital cable and he somehow survived.  

My dad as a teenager > Me as a teenager

5.) Your dad will always be your biggest fan…

Go Blue!

EVEN WHEN  HE’S LIVING IN A HUT 7821.56 MILES AWAY

 

GO BLUE

6.)  Your dad had to put up with you pissing your pants, dragging him to Pokemon:The Movie, going through puberty, getting in trouble, parent teacher conferences, your fads and phases, and the awful music you’ve made him listen to in HIS car.

He put up with THIS.

7.) He taught you how to catch and throw a ball, swear, man-up, and never give up.

And finally:

8.) Your dad would do and has done everything he possibly can to provide you with a better life, whether it be working late hours, dealing with asshole bosses, putting in overtime, or even spending a few years in Afghanistan.

Come home safe, dude

Thank your dads today.  They deserve it.

Love my family, love my dad.

    My dad went to Afghanistan for me too. As I was reading this, I was thinking of my dad. Thanks for the reminder and thank your dad for his service!
