Happy Fathers Day and Go White Sox
I read that this morning too and have not felt so good about being a Sox fan since, well, last night. :wink:

Seriously, that letter was beautiful, at so many levels. I've had similar experiences in my life that involved the Sox. It's good to be alive, and it's great to be a Sox fan.

That's not only a touching story, but it gives some nice insight into who Harrelson is as a human being. Thanks for posting it.

No Lie - I just read it and got chills.

I was there with my kids on Friday, both in Sox hats (she's 11, pink hat, he's 9, black hat), and reminded me of sitting there with them answering their questions, pointing things out to them (my daughter asked about the retired #'s on the wall, he asked about scoring). This article reminded me of that - and to NEVER take it for granted. Thanks - this is a great Father's Day gift.

Yep, I just about got choked up. The letter was very well written, not corny. The old hawkeroo is indeed a good human being.

Too me, the letter is both sad & inspiring. It's sad that those kids lost their father at such a young age. And it's inspiring that people took the time to write get-well wishes for the ailing father... along with reinforcing the importance of enjoying time spent with those closest to you.

Very poignant letter.
