An epic Father’s Day rumination by Joe Posnanski

Joe Posnanski, a brilliant sports writer for Sports Illustrated, also blogs prolifically. In November 2010, he wrote about his personal connection with “The Promise,” a Bruce Springsteen song that had recently been re-released as part of a box set.

Someone posted it last weekend as a good Father’s Day long read. Take a look at this story if you like the Boss or just want to see some good writing.

Of course, the E Street Band lost its soul this week, as Clarence “The Big Man” Clemons died of complications from a massive stroke. Posnanski also wrote about that, which can be read here.
