Hello. Come on in. The daddy writes about current events, literature, music and, once in a while, drops something on you from back in the day to make you pause and ponder, stop and stare, and begin to wonder. Who knows? You may start to pace the floor, shake your head from side to side, then fall down on bended knees in a praying position and cry, "Lawd, have mercy! What is this world coming to?" Check yourself! But this blog is NOT about the daddy. It's about you: your boos, your fam, your hood, your country...our hopes and dreams of a better tomorrow. So let's make a pact: the daddy will put it on the track if you'll chase it down and hit him back. Together, we can definitely take it to another level. Shall we?"

Happy Father's Day

"The guy who takes a chance, the guy who walks between the line between the known and unknown, who is unafraid, will succeed."
-- Gordon Parks, photographer

"If you have achieved any level of success, then pour it into someone. Success is not success without a successor."
-- T. D. Jakes, evangelist

Hey, Tiger: The daddy is proud of you. You hung in there yesterday. Despite your bum knee, despite missing the fairways early on, despite the bogeys, you kept plugging. Toward the end of the day, you were making great shots, getting dap from everybody (even from fellow players) and heading toward a minus one with one more day to go in the PGA tournament.

So happy Father's Day. Now go out there and kick some ass today!

Update: Gimpy knee and all, Tiger sank a dramatic, 12 foot shot on the 18th hole to force a playoff on Monday.
Today, Tiger Woods and Rocco Mediate will compete in an 18-hole playoff for the U.S. Open championship.

Even if he doesn't win, I'll be proud of him. He's role modeling positive values for our kids-- hard work, persistence and no fear of failure.
