MY DAY: College dads

When I was leaving Woodland Cemetery, driving through some of the campus housing, there were a number of visiting families eager to enjoy the football game with their college students.
I always enjoy observing parents. Some seem very comfortable in this environment, while others seem to be the proverbial fish out of water.
One dad, who appeared very hip and cool, was unloading something from his car, surrounded by college students that looked equally hip and cool. 

The Cool-Hip Dad

 We all know the Steve Martin – Chevy Chase types of dads. I always seem to fall into this particular category (I was never cool like some dads I knew: Mike Wager, Bob Ditto, Brian Pollock, John Moore, Rusty Cochran to name a few). The Steve – Chevy combo are semi-cool, but just seem to barely escaped being a Homer Simpson or Peter Griffith kind of dad.

 Then, I spied THE dad. We’ve all seen him. The only way I can think to describe THE dad is: Eugene Levy who plays The father in the AMERICAN PIE films.

This THE dad want so badly to be hip and cool. They are generally some of the nicest guys you’ll ever meet, but I still can’t help but to find them amusing.
