Calvin Johnson and one very proud father

As Calvin Johnson handled his media obligations, his father stood watch, beaming from ear to ear.


You don't need to be a mind reader to know what's going through Calvin Johnson's father's head in the photo below. There's no real interpretation necessary. This is one of those photos where a simple look says it all, and it's pretty fantastic.

That's the look of a father who is extremely proud of his son. Look at how he's clutching his son's record-setting game ball, too. Everything about this photo is just perfect.

Spots can be pretty awesome sometimes, if only because of moments like these. Go hug your father. Or, if you are the father, do the same for your son or daughter.
