If you ever want to meet a true Lakers fan, go find my dad. He’ll be the one with a Golden Retriever dressed up in a purple shirt at Monday’s Laker championship parade in LA.
I’ve been a Lakers fan since the ’80s when I would go to games at the Forum with Dad. But unlike him, I’ve never bought nor worn any Lakers paraphernalia. I’m not that type of fan. Things I also don’t like: bumper stickers and pretty much anything touting anything. That’s why I think it’s funny that I inadvertently set aside a purple top and yellow (or gold if you will) sweater on Wednesday night when I was packing up for last night’s flight, which coincided with Game 7, to NorCal after 10 days in SoCal.
Go Lakers! And Happy Father’s Day!
