Father Blames Bruce Springsteen for Daughter's Tardiness (Top Story)

On Thursday Father Blames Bruce Springsteen for Daughter's Tardiness was a top story. Here is the recap: (Radio.com) Bruce Springsteen is known for his incredibly memorable and lengthy live shows, which usually clock in at about three-and-a-half hours. Anyone who's ever been to a Springsteen concert can testify that it's pretty hard to get up for work or school the next day. Well, a super cool dad in Albany, New York wrote an incredible letter to his daughter's school after she was late because the two went to a Springsteen concert on Monday (Feb. 8).

Patrick A. Papino deserves credit, not only for taking his daughter Isabelle to see The Boss, but for writing a letter to explain why the girl was late to school the next day.

According to Albany's Times Union, Papino wrote: 'Please excuse Isabelle's tardiness to school today. In the interest of honesty, I feel it my obligation to be straight with all of you as to the reason."

He explained, 'Last night Isabelle was lucky enough to see Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band in Albany, and darned if he didn't play for three and a half hours. This may not seem like a good excuse, but have you ever wondered how many kids would be late or miss school outright if God were to suddenly appear? It's something like that." Read Patrick A. Papino's full letter - here.
