Daddy Of The Day - The Rock

Today’s Daddy of the Day is one of my long-time loves, The Rock.

The Rock, born Dwayne Johnson, grew up traveling with is father, Professional wrestler Rocky Johnson. During high school, the family settled down in Bethlehem, PA, where young Dwayne became an accomplished athlete.

He ended up playing football for the University of Miami, and was considering “going pro” before being sidelined by an injury

He followed in his father's (and grandfather's) footsteps, becoming one of the most popular “performers” for the World Wrestling Federation (now the WWE) from 1996 to 2004. After his professional wrestling stint, Johnson concentrated on acting, starring in The Mummy Returns, The Scorpion King, and Walking Tall (all classics in my book!).

On Friday, The Rock’s latest movie comes out – The Game Plan from Disney. It’s the typical “macho guy gets humbled by small children” formula – think Three Men and a Baby, Kindergarten Cop, and more recently, The Pacifier (starring a future Daddy of the Day, Vin Diesel). Critics usually HATE these movies, but anything featuring Vin Diesel in a tight v-neck t-shirt is OK in my book.

Let’s hope The Game Plan also has its share of tight v-neck t-shirts.
