Salute Olympic Dads

By now you have all seen the mom-famous  P&G Best Job commercial by thanking the moms around the world.  I loved it, was touched and commend moms as well.  But it was safe and easy. I wasn’t offended being a single dad but did feel a little left out.  It’s always safe to go with mom.  It would have taken some investigating and more passion to do a commercial on dads.  And I get it P&G, mostly moms buy your products.  I know it’s a numbers game and advertising is about that.

But in my opinion with a stage like the Olympics it was the perfect time to do something different.  So we at daddyscool #SaluteDad

Yin Alvarez Stepdad and coach of Olympic bronze medalist in the all around London 2012, gymnast  Danell Leyva. Alveraz handed out a lot of kisses to his son showing how the bound between step parents and children can grow.

While Danell’s mom thought he was too round and weird shaped and that his asthma would prevent him from being a gynmast, his stepdad molded him into a Olympic athlete. #SaluteDad

Also being a cool dad I have to salute Steve Lochte, a swim coach and father of the cool Olympic medalist Ryan Lochte. Steve coached up two awesome swimmers, one of which never made it to the Olympics because he started selling weed, but being a dad is dealing with the good and bad.  #SaluteDad.
I’ll add more or just hip me to more Olympic dads. In the meantime I salute you for reading. #DadsRule
