Let’s face it. Dads are devoted to their sports. Particularly football, in all of its codes. It’s here where they show incredible devotion. They can follow a team for a lifetime. Through its highs and lows. This could include bad player signings, players not showing any loyalty and going to other clubs. Putting up with ordinary club management, which is a bit of a mystery, because if it happened in the work force, there would be instant mass sackings.

Dads are also very knowledgeable. They know who scored what and when, what moment, what round, what year. They have to know, otherwise their mates would think they’re losing a grip on things. They know which player the club should buy next. How his skills could be a real bonus. They even have the temerity to suggest how the team should play. It’s as if they really understand coaching. So dads have to know footy, because it can be a unifying thing. Especially when they meet other dads for the first time at say a barbie. Discussing football can be a real ice breaker. There’s only one rule. Before lurching into bagging another team, it’s advisable to find out who the other dads support. Otherwise it could be a very lonely afternoon.

At The Complete Basketcase, we mightn’t know who kicked the winning goal in the 1996 Grand Final, but we do know what dads like for Father’s Day. You could kick off with wine gifts, like the Gipsie Jack Sauvignon Blanc 2013 with layers of green bean and gooseberry. It also comes with four Pink Lady Truffles. If dad prefers a red, well the gift boxed 'The Nook' Heathcote Shiraz with its bouquet of plum, dark cherries, and clove should fit the bill. Presented in a glossy gift box alongside four Pink Lady truffles, it’s sure to make his day.

Now if he likes to tell tall football tales after dinner, then the gift boxed Galway Grand Tawny 12 year old port is the ideal accompaniment. Perhaps if you think he’s a smooth talker then maybe a 750ml Baileys Irish Cream with lady pink truffles might be right on the money.

Dads are real favourites at The Complete Basketcase. The girls down there know exactly what tickles their fancy, which means you don’t have to worry about a thing on Father’s Day!
