Football obsessed Dad... sound familiar? Here at A Town Called Home we know exactly what it’s like to live with a football crazy Dad which is why we created a range of football inspired Father’s Day cards (don’t worry, there’s Mother’s Day versions too, but as we’re approaching Fathers Day, we thought we’d dedicate this post to them).
As a Newcastle United supporter, our Dad ensured the whole household understood the importance of the black and white stripes. Even now, you can be sure that he’ll manage to squeeze in a mention of the Mags into even the shortest phone call!
I’m sure there’ll be many families that, just like ours, realise that there’s far more to being a football fan than watching their team play for 90 minutes. For Dad his support of the Toon is very much part of his personality, it’s a way of life.
Whether it’s scrutinising the latest news in the build up to a game, to immersing himself in all post match interviews, highlights and player movements - Dad’s love for football stretches much further than the match itself.
There’s the memories a game of football invokes. The highs, the lows and the friendships made along the way. The family bonding time and the sense of community.
