This year, Fox News analyst Fred Barnes, Orlando Magic Vice President Pat Williams, country music singer Buddy Jewell and Atlanta Falcons player Allen Rossum received Fatherhood Awards.Perhaps dad as a CEO or traditional-paternal-figurehead-to-admire-from-afar is what it means to be a father to these people, but a man who has 19 children and has written 38 books? Don't get me wrong, it is totally admirable to adopt, I personally plan to adopt someday, but what kind of father can he possibly be to that many children in addition to two careers?
"I think you have to learn how to do it," said Williams, the father of 19 children, including 14 adopted from four countries. "In many ways, I'm my father's protege," said Williams, who just finished his 38th book, in which he interviewed 800 people about the most influential figure in their lives. "Over and over I got the same answer: 'My dad.' This is no slap at moms in any way, but Dad -- you are the key person."
Not to be an asshole, but I'm just sayin'.
