Ohio State Celebrates Father-Daughter Day at the WHAC

Taken moments before Kerry Coombs lit into them for their soft coverage skills.

The Ohio State football coaching and support staffs held the first "Father-Daughter" day at the Woody Hayes Athletic Center Wednesday, with nine young ladies getting quality time with dad on the job.

In addition to sitting in on a coaching meeting - albeit, briefly - the young ladies proceeded to play in the basketball court, racquetball court and indoor practice field. They took part in an Easter egg hunt in the player's lounge and then worked on some crafts, including making "good luck" signs for their fathers. They hung the signs in Dad's office, blew bubbles, watched Dora the Explorer and ended their day with lunch and a hug from Dad.

Our first reaction to this is that it's a cool idea. Our next reaction? Wow, is this staff young.

Also, you can say you were there the day "Dora the Explorer" appeared in an Ohio State football press release.

Very cool.
Where were Urban's daughters, though?

Those who stay will be CHAMPIONS!

You just can't help yourself, can you?
Also, that would be 'Coach Meyer', fella!

One attends Georgia Tech.  The other attends FGCU.  Not really feasible for them to travel up for this event.

Nice touch Bucks; I'm guessing Urban's daughter's are probably at school, in class....

His daughter GiGi is on her way to Texas to watch FGCU play, thanks to dad's birthday present and I am sure his daughter Nikki is in class at Georgia Tech.  Besides, I don't think Father-Daughter day at work typically includes 20-22 year old daughters.

Love it.
I get to spend next Friday night at a Father-Daughter Dance with my 2nd grader.  So blessed.

Maestro, I have done the Father-Daughter dance with my 2nd grade twins for the last 3 years for Girl Scouts. When I go, there are always dads not dancing with their little girls. I tell everybody to dance with their daughters now because there's going to come a time that it's not cool to dance with Dad and then the next time you dance with them will be at their wedding. That usually gets the dads out of their chairs. Enjoy the dance, and if you figure what the Charlie Brown is, please let me know.

I wonder if Coombs threw out a "What do you need water for?" to these little ones?

took my daughter to work once, she loved it, and she found out why daddy always came home grouchy.
