Father’s day has just passed, and on that day, and hopefully others as well, we remember the connection and relationship we have with our dad’s. Additionally, for those of us fortunate enough to have children, it’s a chance to spend some time with them, and gives them a chance to tell us what they think.

Not all homes are happy ones, and not all relationships are good ones, but often there is some bond, something that draws the best out of all involved. For my dad and I it was baseball. He coached, I played, I watched his softball games, we went to professional games together, we watched at home, he taught me all about the game, about the intricacies and subtleties of it, and for most of my life I loved baseball more than anything else.

I was lucky to have that. No matter what else happened in our relationship, we had that, and that won’t change.

This week on the show I spoke with Steve and Dan Jarvis about their relationship and supporting Saints. Steve was in an accident over 30 years ago that left him with limited vision. He and Dan discuss the impact of his impaired vision affected their relationship, supporting Saints home and away, the team and more.

You can follow Dan and Steve on Twitter @danjarvisSFC91 and @SteveJarvisSFC, and don’t be afraid to say hello to them at a game or in a pub, they are both very friendly and I’m very honored to be able to talk to them in this manner, and grateful that they agreed to open up a bit about their relationship.

Steve and Dan talked about a website they use to help make sure Steve has a radio in order to be sure Steve could hear the radio commentary. The website is http://www.levelplayingfield.org.uk/ so if you know of anyone who may be able to take advantage of the services offered please pass it on. They are there to help make sure everyone can enjoy the events as much as everyone else.
