One post about Father’s Day just wasn’t enough…so I’m making this Father’s Week. (I know, it’s very conceited and self-centered of me–but it helps me to be less cranky.)
I ran across an article by Gayle Falkenthal for Communities at WashingtonTimes.com about the top ten TV mold-breaking dads, and I noticed something–these guys are all pretty cranky. So cranky, in fact, that they make me look like Andy Griffith by comparison.
I already know who wins my vote: Frank Costanza from Seinfeld. When he used tough love to pit his son George against Lloyd Braun in a sales competition–well, let’s just say I learned a lot about being a dad from watching that show. Almost everything I know, in fact. I can’t wait until Festivus. It will be years before Wolfe is strong enough to pin me.
So, what do you think? Vote for your favorite TV dad…or add a comment with your favorite fictional dad (TV, movies, books, plays–they’re all game).
