my dad - my MVP.

I entered my dad, Robby Hamilton, in a Father's Day contest. I'm probably going to be kind of annoying about this if you're friends with me on facebook, but I would really love for him to win, and I think we have a good chance. But I need your help. First I'll tell you how, then I'll explain why I did this.


Go to this website:
http://mlb.mlb.com/sponsors/mvpdad/gallery.jsp

Find my entry. You can do this by selecting "Red Sox" under "Team", and looking for the name "BoSoxGirl". There is a picture of my dad sitting with my brother wearing Red Sox gear. Click "Read" to see it, and then you can click "Vote".


This does not take long and it is very simple. So far, it's let me vote endlessly. Haha. I have no idea what the limit is, so feel free to vote as many times as you can, and go back to vote every day if you would like. :)


I definitely need your help because 40% of how you win is through the public vote! So vote away! THANK YOU SO MUCH!


What is the prize? Tickets to Fenway Park! Where he can go on the field and be honored for winning, and wear a jersey made just for him! ahhh!


Why did I do this? Well, my dad is an AMAZING person. I'm not just saying this because he's my dad, I'm also saying this because I get told that he is all the time. He has been coaching for over 20 years, and has touched SO many lives in the process. He has been an excellent role model for his players, and they always tell me how thankful they are that they were coached by him. My dad is an honorable, hard working, godly man who hardly ever gets a break. He sacrifices so that he can provide for my family and be a leader. During basketball season, he works from 8 to at least 5, goes to basketball practice or a game, and doesn't even get dinner until after 8pm. He even goes to work on Saturdays only to have optional basketball practice (which he doesn't have to do) right after from 12-2. He LOVES his players and it shows.


My dad has always, always put our family first. I wish that I could thank him by just buying him tickets to Fenway and sending him on a trip but I can't. I know how much I longed to go there my whole life and was finally able to last August (when I got engaged!). So I can't even imagine how much my dad wants to go since he's been wanting to for 50 years! That's right - he has NEVER been. Even though he deserves it more than anyone. I hope you can help me give my dad this gift by voting for my entry in this contest.


From walking me down the aisle and giving me away, to turning 50 in August, this is a big year for my dad. Let's make it an even bigger year by sending him to Fenway. Thank you.
