On this Father's Day I'd like to take a moment to thank my own Dad...
get advice from real, live NHL players like Doug Roberts. These experiences were only made possible by my parents, and I will forever be grateful for that.
made me a custom baseball card!
I have many more great cards like this one that I've inherited from him, and I plan to do a better job about posting some of them in the near future. In the meantime, what I cherish most are the memories of growing up and the collecting experiences as a kid, with my Dad, that fueled a fire that still burns in me to this day.
Were it not for my Dad, I wouldn't have ever played hockey, come to love sports, and I would probably be a totally different person than I am today. Well, I'm pretty glad that things broke the way they did!
Dad, thanks for all of your dedication and sacrifice over the years. I don't always get a chance to say it, but I really appreciate all you've done for me in helping me become the man that I am today. I look forward to many more years of reminiscing about obscure hockey players, and talking about the Patriots games on Sunday.
Happy Father's Day to all you dads out there!
