Okay, so I get this call from my Mother the other day. Normally she wants to talk and talk..... Usually about good stuff, but sometimes it's about nothing important at all. Just random happenings, gossip, relatives, or ailments (hers and mine). This particular call, she really didn't say much at all. In fact, she was sort of short. She says; "oh here's your Father. You want to talk to him?" Sure, why not? I respond. So Dad gets on and after we exchange our typical pleasantries he starts harassing me about football. NFL teams and such. Before I know it, he's baited me into a wager on who will win the NFC North Division. He allows me to take the Chicago Bears who are currently 3-1 and he takes the Minnesota Vikings who are 4-0. Funny thing is - I'm a Minnesota Viking fan! Da! Go figure.
After that, he sucks about 1 hour of tech support out of me because his computer wasn't cooperating. The other funny thing..... I don't know jack about computers; but I manage to help him get his computer fixed.
Dad, you are one shrewd Dude! It sure was cool waking up on weekends and watching ABC's Wide World of Sports with you!
"Spanning the globe to bring you the constant variety of sport"
and of course the well known:
"The thrill of victory and the agony of defeat!"
Dad, and everyone else who remembers those days! Here ya' go:
