For many, love of sports and the relationships one has with their favorite team has a lot to do with the relationships one has with their family: fathers, mothers, aunts, uncles, etc. Sports are a communal activity and they are kept alive by an oral tradition often passed down from generation to generation, making bonds stronger as they unite likeminded fans together.
If anyone has any stories, greetings, or well-wishes they'd like to share, I'd invite anyone to do so in the this thread. Perhaps some of our readers are fathers themselves, in which case let me be the first to wish you, personally, a Happy Fathers Day.
