My favorite by far!

I'm just like any other Dad out there. I love my kids with all of my being and I try my hardest to make sure that they have a childhood filled with memories. I want their life to be filled with wonder and I want them to think that their Daddy is the coolest on the face of the earth. I also do not think that I would be doing my job as a father if I didn't feed my children's imagination through small magical acts of wonder. For example, up until my son was about 6 years old, he thought that his Daddy was magic. His eyes would always open wide and his mouth would drop to the floor every time that I rolled his window down in the back seat by using the "force" with a simple wave of my hand.   Of course I was just using the button on my window, but he didn't know that.  He and his sister would try and try to move that window, and every now and again it would actually move! :)  I have shown my son other little magic tricks along the way, but the older he gets the more he catches on.  They grow up too fast!

So with that in mind, it was no wonder that this was my favorite Super Bowl commercial.  It wasn't even close.




 Congrats to the Downeast Duck Hunter for leading the Packers to a great win on Sunday, and congrats to the Dad in this commercial!  He is the real winner in my book!!

Ditto. If that one didn't strike a chord with every Dad that saw it, they must not have a heart.

It's not planned that Rabid and I post at the same time, but it wasn't easy pulling of that big win... My kids asked me if Santa Claus was real and I told them, "Go ahead tell Daddy he isn't real, do you want to possibly not get present?" They'll believe in Santa forever...

Agreed...best commercial!

It reminds me of my Dad....who could stop and start the rain at the snap of his fingers (...as we passed under a highway overpass)

You always thought your daddy was pretty cool, too! You always thought I had eyes in the back of my head...I still do!

Trey forgot to tell you that his daughter has been wearing the Darth costume everyday since Sunday...she even slept in it Sunday night!
