Dreams of a Couple Fathers

Sometimes a son gets to equal his father's achievement, other times he gets to achieve his father's dream (as strange as it may seem to others).

And so we come to the tales of Bill Haas and Chris Dilberto. Haas won his first title since beginning play on the PGA Tour in 2006, the Bob Hope Desert Classic, just as his father, Jay, captured the flag in 1984. Haas elder took home eight more titles in his career; we'll see how the son does with those.

Dilberto, on the other hand, only has to wear a dress one to surpass his father's dream. The elder Mr. D., a New Orleans radio personality promised to don something beautiful if the Saints played in (not even won) the Super Bowl. Along with a couple other locals, young Mr. D has vowed to fulfill the promise of his dad, who passed away in 2005 — is a man in a dress even a big thing in the Crescent City?

In any case, congrats to both sets of fathers and sons.
