We’ve talked about NFL dads before and even got to ask questions of one (check it after the jump), but this week brought two more NFL players highlighting the importance and impact of fatherhood.
Both Baltimore Ravens’ Ray Lewis and Green Bay Packers’ Greg Jennings mentioned fatherhood this week. We even got a little ‘tude from Jennings when someone calls him “Mr. Mom.”
Marquise Francis of theGrio offers a list of
11 10 of rap music’s “best” dads. “More than any other industry, fathers in hip-hop have a negative stigma,” says Francis, “but contrary to the stereotypes there are plenty of upstanding rap industry fathers out there.”
Spoiler alert, we’re absolutely vetoing Kanye West right now until we get some evidence otherwise.
Thanks to Chris “Canadian Dad” Read for pointing us to our dad of the week: a Chinese fella named Mr. Feng.
Mr. Feng’s son Xiao was a gamer with a bit of an addiction. Xiao’s grades in school suffered, and he couldn’t hold down a job.
Well, crap like that doesn’t work for Mr. Feng. So Mr. Feng fought fire with fire: he hired online hitmen to hunt down Xiao and kill him every time he entered the game. He figured that if Xiao was spawn-killed every time he was in the game, he’d grow tired of the game and rejoin reality.
