Happy Father's Day to all the dads of Niners Nation. Hopefully you're enjoying funny cards, new ties, and maybe a nice brunch today. And whether you're a dad or not, make sure and call your own dad!
Speaking of which, our own Jim Harbaugh likely has already called his dad. I say that with some measure of confidence, even though he is in Peru right now doing some charity work with his church. According to his brother, John, there is a competition among the siblings to be the first one to call their dad, Jack. I don't think this surprises anybody in the least given the competition within the Harbaugh family. Also, Peru is only one hour behind eastern time, so Jim Harbaugh has a good chance of getting in the first Happy Father's Day!
Do you have a particularly fond sports memory with your dad? It can be a single event, or an accumulation of events. Maybe you saw a great game together, or maybe you went to games together frequently with season tickets. For me, when I was living in the Bay Area and working for the Oakland A's (and even after I was working for them), my dad would come down whenever the Red Sox came to town. My dad's originally from Boston, so he's a big Red Sox fan. The most entertaining game was the extra inning, Ramon Hernandez walk-off bunt game, but they were all fun. He also made it down when the Patriots came to town, and we met up in Foxboro for 49ers-Patriots.
What's your favorite memory?
Happy Father's Day, dads!
