Countdown to Kickoff: 76 Days (Father's Day Edition)

As we continue on our daily countdown towards the 2007 season, which is now 76 days away, we take this chance to celebrate Father's Day...

Though men often shy away from showing any type of emotion, there is a unique bond that is formed between a father and son. Whether its picking you up from school, or driving you to little league baseball practice, or spotting you some money while in college, you just know that he'll be there for you. So here's to you Dad, thanks for all of your love and support. None of us would even be alive if it weren't for our fathers, but obviously that's not what makes them special. As Laurence Fishburne said in the 1991 film Boyz n the Hood:
"Any fool with a dick can make a baby, but only a real man can raise his children."

I've included some pictures of some notable fathers, though a couple of them are fictional, they all provided some valuable lessons, and were an inspiration to me growing up...
