You see he was a little green in completion do to his liver shutting down. Liver cancer will do that to you.
So there I was enjoying some home-fries and a Jones soda. We had made the trip from Grandview, (200 miles by car) to see the Central Washington University vs. Western Washington University. It was a special event every year that draws over 20,000 fans. I enjoyed the game and I enjoyed seeing my dad again. It didn't matter to me that his face and body shape was on another man. He looked so much like my dad that I felt very emotional and close to my father again. He never visited Quest fields as we did to Safeco field back in 2001. (Last week’s story The Game.)
Years later I was looking though those photos and I showed them to my brother. He had lived with my parents just before dad passed and remembered him turning Green. He just stared at the photos.
I started to laugh and told him the story. He looked relieved because he couldn’t figure out how I got my dad to a football game, when he was supposed to be so sick. He liked the photos so much he wanted me to share. This is my way of sharing.
