SNYDER: With love, to a father I wish that I’d known
Sports provide a glue for so many families. There’s really nothing else like it, especially when the passion for a team is passed down from generation to generation to generation. I’m just sorry we never bonded like so many fathers and sons who use sports as a vehicle to grow closer. I’m just sorry I have no memories of us watching and attending and playing games together.
Most of all, Dad, I’m just sorry you died when I was four weeks old.
Happy Father’s Day.
I love you.
