Champions. Has a nice ring to it though it is not a term utilized much over the past 52 years or so in the Northeastern Ohio corridors. Well, the winds of change are about as not only did the Cleveland Cavaliers complete a historic comeback to defeat the all-time regular season champion Golden State Warriors, but you, the reader, have winners in your midst as well. WFNY held a contest seeking stories and poems to honor everything that is great about being a father.
The first contest winner wrote a fantastic emotional haiku that was disclosed in the WFNY Father's Day newsletter. If you are not receiving the WFNY newsletter, then you are missing out. So, click the link and subscribe so you can have it just placed gently in your inbox from now on.
So, we hope you had a great Father's Day. If you are a fan of the Cavs (or Cleveland in general), then the odds are it was pretty otherworldly. Enjoy the upcoming parade and enjoy these winning dad entries.
If your entry was selected as one of the winners, then you have already been contacted by WFNY and you will receive your Very Important Award. It could be a boat!
Our teeball league was co-ed full of first graders (I guess the term now is rising second graders). It was the bottom of the seventh, and we were tied with the team that was a juggernaut for the whole season. The coach was a drill sergeant, and his son ended up getting drafted by the Expos out of high school (but played for OU). Point being, this family took baseball very seriously, even back then.
