Damn you, MD! I'm sitting here at my desk bawling and I've got to be on a conference call in 5 minutes. That was beautiful.

Happy Father's Day to you!


I don't have sound at the moment, but I'm still sobbing.

Mr. Big Dubya

THAT is what it's all about. Right there, that kind of relationship. Is there anything more right inthe world?


Wow. Amen to that.

Grateful to be a father. Want to get it right.
Forgave all my Dad's mistakes, so I'm thinking that I might.
So come on fellow daddys, in the blogosphere.
Show your kids you love them now, we won't always be here.

Thanks for the perspective MD. And Happy Fathers Day all.


We should all be so lucky to have that kind of relationship with our children and our own fathers. Thanks, Metro. Happy Father's Day to you too.

Mama Nabi

Sigh, I cried when I heard about his passing... my favorite part of the video is when Earl is helping Tiger out of a sweater and then he smoothes down Tiger's lapel - a 2 second action that reveals what a loving father he was... thanks for the link... Happy Father's day, Metrodad, one of my favorite dads out there!


I love those lyrics: "the warmth of your love is like the warmth of the sun." You're right, MD. That IS what parenting and Father's Day is all about. Happy Father's Day to one of the coolest dads out there.


Awww - now I'm sitting here at my desk trying to quietly wipe away the tears sliding down my cheeks. *sniffle* Thank you for sharing that.


Thanks for posting this, MD. As a girly non-sports watcher, I don't see too many Nike commercials--I doubt I would have seen this one.

Pickle's Papa

Happy Father's Day all. Seems every time I turn around - I'm crying these days.



That made me bawl. I always thought he seemed like a fantastic dad.

Happy Father's day, MD. I hope you, BossLady and the Peanut have a great weekend.


A great gift, MD -- and one of the rare ads that celebrates the true power of dads. Thanks for sharing this, and happy Father's Day to you (and to all the other dads out there!)


Happy Fathers' Day

Her Bad Mother

Dad's day is tomorrow, but might as well get the crying started now.



I had a contentious relationship with my father, like many Korean boys. So, the commercial did not move my hardened heart one damn bit. But let it not be said I am not a good son, I sent my father a bottle Oban's, Lagavulin, and a 21 year old Glenlivet. If you'd like, you can save this comment to show your daughter how respectful Korean children show they feelings for their fathers. With fine single malt scotches.


Pictures are worth millions of words - and a few tears.

Very touching.

Happy Father's Day MD!


Oh why'd you have to go and make me cry like that?

Happy daddy's day to you too, MD


I was SO moved when I saw that today...wow.

Happy Father's Day, MD.


Happy Father's Day, Metro. Dang you, you made me cry again. Take care.

Busy Mom

Happy Father's Day, MD!


Hey MD....Happy Father's Day!


Happy Father's Day!!!


and p.s. that vid was perfect.


I just wanted to let you know that we just linked to your blog... thanks for sharing! And Happy Father's Day!

Hey, MD,

That clip was touching. It makes me sad that I didn't have a dad growing up. On the flip side, it reinforces the fact that my sons won't share my fate.

Happy Father's Day to you, and your Pop!


Found your blog from the NY Daily News. Happy Father's Day.


Not to quibble, but, damn, I can't quibble... happy Father's Day.

the weirdgirl

Oh, that was really sweet... and sad too. (Nike knows how to get those heartstrings, don't they?)

Happy Father's Day, MD!


Happy Fathers day back atcha

Queen of Ass

How very adorably sweet. Happy Father's Day, MD.


I almost started crying after I watched the clip. Very sweet, indeed. Happy (late) Father's Day, MetroDad.


Awww... Happy Father's Day MF. You should've bought yourself a dog and a Mustang convertible. Have fun with the brat. Dumbass.


Ugh. I'm all teary now. I loved it....

Air Jordan sale

What a great post! Just one suggestion:If you add some pics, it would be easiler to follow!

Rerto Jordans

Wow that's interesting. Good news though, they make easy to use bikini hair removal creams. They work just as good as a wax for women who still want to be clean down there.

Jordans Sneakers

The sea can accommodate all, so we just to see the sea, our heart is infinitely more freedom and broad!

Nike Air Max

This is good article. A friend without faults will never be found.

fathers day clothing

Advance happy father's day to your dad also. Tiger Wood's father had been known for his contribution to the sports world. We'll surely miss him.
