RIP-Tom Snyder, Bill Walsh

Both of which remind me of my father, who I still miss very much (It'll be five years in September.)

Tom Snyder
One of the things I inherited from my father is insomnia and the desire to stay up late and watch television. I can remember watching Tomorrow with him, when I should have been asleep long before Johnny Carson, never mind up at 1:00 in the morning.

Seeing him on his various shows including CNBC afterwards always reminded me of daddy.

Bill Walsh
I love football because of my father. I was mostly a Jets fan when I moved out here, but I was luckly enough to arrive during the Niner glory days and I pretty quickly fell in love with Joe Montana and the team, and daddy was willing to root for them too (as long as they weren't playing the Giants or the Jets.) The Niners suck now and I haven't sat through a whole game in years. Thanks for the good times, Bill!
