Like a lot of people, next Sunday I’ll be honoring my dear ol’ dad – perhaps in the form of a Home Depot gift card. Because nothing says “thank you for life, love and shelter” like new electrical outlet covers.
But being that I was partially raised by a 1981 television set, I can’t forget to pay tribute to the other dads in my life — my TV dads. So the question is, what do you get for the men who have everything? Boisterous laugh tracks? Top Nielsen ratings? A chance to appear on Hollywood Squares? Here are a few more tangible items:
