Once in a while an idea will find me all by itself. This Father’s Day I saw a post on Facebook of all places suggesting that Father’s Day should take place in the fall so we could spend our day with or fathers and sons watching football.
Sounds good to me.
Then I thought why does it have to be in the fall. From 1934-1976 the Chicago College All-Star Game took place between departing college players and the NFL champions. What is wrong with beginning that tradition once again. Very simple have a team of college all-americans play against NFL pro bowl athletes, have the game coached by the head coaches of the defending National Champions and Super Bowl champions. Nice and simple.
Have all procedes go for charity, I’m thinking Big Brothers.
What better celebration of fathers across the country than having a football game used to raise money for those children among us that live there lives without a father.
It is an idea.
Oh, and before I forget Happy Fathers Day!!!
