Those of you who follow sports may know that Tiger Woods' father passed away from cancer four weeks ago. Anyone who ever saw Tiger with his father knows that Earl was not one of those parents who pushed his son to play golf in order to fulfill his own ambitions. He was just, quite simply, Tiger's mentor, best friend, and #1 fan. The two of them were often inseparable and, every time Tiger won a tournament, he always went straight to Earl and gave him a big hug. Theirs was a truly special relationship.
Sadly, this Nike commercial was compiled a few weeks before Earl Woods' death and was meant to be Tiger's Father's Day tribute to "make sure all dads everywhere are recognized and appreciated." It's so sentimentally touching that every time I watch it, tears come to my eyes.
I hope all of you watch it and remember what Father's Day is really about.
You can also see the video here. The song is The Zombies' "This Will Be Our Year."
From all of us to all of you...Happy Father's Day.
