Father's Day Feast
Last year, my father and I began an annual tradition of spending Father's Day together. Instead of throwing our money away at the casinos in Atlantic City, as we did last year, we stayed closer to home and went out to lunch at a restaurant specializing in Russian cuisine. It was only fitting, in that my father has introduced me to all kinds of foods over the years.
We spent the rest of the afternoon at home in front of the TV, watching the Phillies -- something else that my father introduced me to many years ago. Unfortunately, they literally threw the game away, thanks to a fielding error by Tom Gordon and lost to the St. Louis Cardinals, 7-6. Just as Father's Day is an annual tradition, so too is losing in Philadelphia!
