By Rock Mayock 9:00 a.m. | Just a friendly reminder to all of our wonderful readers that Sunday, June 17, 2012, is Father’s Day. In case you were wondering or confused, that is TODAY. Today is the day to honor the big guy who gave us our first beer, bought us our first lap dance and let us borrow smokes from the pack he “accidentally” left on the kitchen counter.
The FOOTBALLPHDS realize that many of our readers are very busy and may not have had time to adequately plan to give good ole dad the tribute he deserves. Therefore we have cobbled together a list of viable Plan B options that will help you navigate the treacherous waters of Lake Procrastination.
1. It’s still early in the day so you can probably find a card at your local grocery store, drug store or liquor store. A card, typically a humor based card, will always do the trick.
2. If you’re dead set on buying a gift then skip the tool section at Home Depot. Odds are you’re going to make a terrible decision because you either know nothing about what tools dad needs or what constitutes a good one. Therefore you should buy dad something he really needs, beer. A nice craft brew IPA like Pliny or Rampage will do very nicely.
3. You can always take dad out for some lunch or dinner. The nice thing is that dad will probably appreciate a nice burger instead of a sit down gourmet restaurant. Need an idea for a good burger joint? Refresh your memory with our stack rankings of LA burgers here.
4. Just like Mother’s Day, the point of Father’s Day is to make dad feel special. If all else fails then give your pops a phone call or stop by the house to say “hi.” He’ll appreciate the consideration more than any cheap trinket you buy for him.
