What was your special tradition with your Dad? The thing that just you 2 did together…it was something you really bonded over. For my Dad and I, it’s always been video games. Friday nights growing up we’d usually head to Blockbuster to get a game for him and a game for me. Then we’d find some time throughout the weekend to spend together playing. I still laugh when he calls me for help in his new game…even though we’re 2 grown men and live in different cities…it still brings us together. For Wayne Williams, his special tradition with his Dad was listening to the Chicago Cubs games. Even though his Dad has passed on, Wayne knew last night they had to listen to one more game together. “I talked it out with my boys forever. I let them know that I told my dad – we had a pact. When the Cubs – not if, when – the Cubs got into the World Series, we would make sure we listen to the games together,”
“I’ll never forget one day he said, start of the season, I forget what year it was, ‘This is going to be our year. This is going to be our year. We’re going to be 500.'” Wayne said about his late father, who was a Navy Vet. Father and Son, Cubs fans no matter how bad they go, last night they got to celebrate their team winning the World Series for the first time in 108 years…and they did it together.
