My Biggest Fan

I just got off the phone with my dad. He’s good.

“I’m a Brewers fan now,” he said.

Why not? He’s in Milwaukee. He watches every game. My dad’s loaded with spare time.

He told me about the Brewers’ win in spite of five errors and their over-the-top double play.

Sorry Yankee fans, he’s turned on you.

We talked about work and this last week for me on Channel 8. “There are few people who can say they like what they do.”

He’s right. I’m very lucky.

I reminded my dad how he’s always been supportive. Back in the radio days he’d drive along the Belt Parkway from Brooklyn into Queens and listen to me, first on WBT, later on WPEN.

Even now he watches every day. Thank you Internet.

It makes him smile. Me too.

Ann Nyberg asked me to put some video of my dad on TV. Hopefully, this week.

  3. That’s a good idea about outing your dad on some night. It would be nice seeing him too.

  5. Your dad looks fantastic. How old is he? I remember when you first came to Channel 8, you would start by saying “I just got off the phone with my dad.” The smile on your face tells it all. Looking forward to watching you on Channel 8 the next six weeks.
