    To all you dads out there....wishes for prosperity and all the tools you need to be a great parent in this tough world, economically and otherwise. It may be sexist, but men are wired to be the family providers and it's my hope that every one of you find a path to prosper in.

    My dad is one of the reasons I'm a sports journalist. For that -- and a million other reasons -- I'm thankful for him.

    Happy Father's Day to all the dads out there.

    Cheesy post alert:

    My six year old learned to ride a two-wheeler today. Great Father's Day memory for the both of us. I'll never forget the look on her face when she realized she had it figured out.
    That is all.
    I return to my role as a cynical desker.

    Happy Father's Day to all the dads out there.
    This was my first Father's Day as a dad and it was great. Just wish my dad hadn't died 8 years ago so he could have been around to celebrate as a grandpa. Or that my wife's father hadn't died 15-16 years ago so he could have been celebrating as a grandpa too.

    great one, canuck. a lifetime memory there.

    all three shockey boys, 19, 16 and 14, hung out with the ol' man on this rainy day and helped out their mom as best they could. much yelling still required to get things done, but any time i came close to coming to mrs. shockey's aid by declaring we've raised three crummy kids she'd say, "c'mon, shockey, they're gotta admit they're good boys."

    and they are. greatest feeling in the world to know you've been doing a good job with no experience!

    To the Dads on this thread who worry about doing a good job .... my dad was not perfect. He was emotionally unavailable and he and my Mom split up when I was a teenager. But he did a remarkable job considering the parenting that HE had and I see my brothers and sisters improving on him. It's comforting.

    This is coming out wrong because I'm feeling emotional, but all you Dad's make a difference, whether your children realize it or not. And I would give everything to be able to say all of this to my father.

    Today was my 2nd Father's Day without my dad. I'm a little mad at myself for not doing more to honor him. Thanks to a thoughtful friend, though, I had a nice day and wasn't too sad. 'Til now.

    Guiding me into this sinkhole of a "career" is one thing I cannot blame my dad for. He probably wanted me to learn a trade, something actually useful.
