    The most amazing dad ever

    Stupid is forever, ignorance can be fixed.
    False words are not only evil in themselves, but they infect the soul with evil.
    Compassion is the basis of all morality.
    The stupid neither forgive nor forget; the naive forgive and forget; the wise forgive but do not forget.

    WOW. That's all I can say at the moment.
    Homer: No one snuggles with Max Power. Just strap on and feel the Gs!

    American Coast Guard: Back off Canadians we got them.
    Canadian Coast Guard: You back off hosers, they are in Canadian waters, eh.
    American Coast Guard: Beat it you puck smacking maple suckers!
    Canadian Coast Guard: Take a hike you Shatner stealing Mexico touchers!

    Bart: Who the hell is this?
    Jack Bauer: I’m Jack Bauer, who the hell is this?
    Bart: Me, er… I’m Ahmed Adudi
    Jack: Chloe, get me all you can on Ahmed Adudi… Does anyone there know Ahmed Adudi?
    Chloe O’Brien: Ahmed Adudi; wealthy Saudi financier… Disappeared into Afghanistan in the late 90s…
    Jack: … Really?
    Chloe (ironically): No Jack it’s a joke name, you’re being set up.
    Jack: DAMMIT!

    thank you
    If eddie were down and out on a sidewalk playing guitar I'd be next to him with a bottle and a blanky braving the cold. I would be sucking my thumb happily making chupa chupa noises in sync with the petroglyphic sounds that came from the mighty finger tips of Edward Van Halen.

    That was just amazing. I watched it three hours ago and am still in awe

    I am with OLO. I feel lazy now. I do everything I can for my daughter when I can because I don't get to see her everyday. This story made me feel like I don't even begin to do enough.

    I hear you bro. I have three kids myself. Teenagers at that. I do the best that can. NEVER stop telling her that you love here and don't put ANYONE
    before her.

    Amazing. Makes one feel inferior for caving in to the petty crap we think is hard in our day to day lives.

    /three cheers and a prayer for both of them

    I work with an attorney who has has competed in the Iron Man the past two years so I watch it and always just smile when I see this. It really puts it all in perspective. I can honestly say I've hoped it has made me a better Dad after watching the sacrifice Mr Hoyt has made for his son.

    Awesome story, I remember reading Rick Reilly's article in SI a while back. Never saw the video. The images make it alot more powerful.

    I love my boy soooooo much. With a little girl arriving in less than a month, I was really wondering how I would be able to do it.

    There's no question we all have it inside us.
    A little more volume in the headphones please.
