You might remember making those friendship bracelets back in school, kids are still doing these.
In fact, I saw this thing where 2 little girls made something for their Dad. They wanted it to be good luck for him, because he was scaling Mount Kilimanjaro. Their big burly Dad wore those pink bracelets with pride, climbed the mountain, and is still wearing them, 8 months later.
But, he got in trouble for it. See, their Dad is R.A. Dickey. He’s a pitcher for the New York Mets. Apparently, in baseball there’s a rule about wearing things like this, and the other day the Umpire stopped the game, went out to the pitcher’s mound, and made him take them off.
Dickey said he had worn them without complaint in every start he has made this season. I saw a picture of them around his wrist, they were so worn and tattered and that it looks like he has never taken them off.
Now that's a Daddy who loves his kids.
Tell me what special thing your children have made you?
