This week on the Life of Dad Show hosts Tom Riles and Art Eddy dub this show the FUN EPISODE. Why is it the fun episode? Well, we talk about our time in Vegas with the rest of the Life of Dad crew and about baseball. We chat about baseball since we have former World Series Champion with the Boston Red Sox, Kevin Millar on the show.

You can now see Kevin with Chris Rose on the MLB Network show “Intentional Talk” that airs weekdays at 5 PM EST.

Kevin talks about his show, fatherhood, and what it was like to be a “bunch of idiots” that made MLB history in 2004. Millar and the Red Sox were down 0-3 in the ALCS series against their rivals the New York Yankees, but won the next four games to move on to the World Series.

Tom and Art also talk about how your circle of friends could depend on whether or not your friends have kids. That discussion goes right into this week’s guest on the show. The guys welcome Sean Kent from the A&E show “Modern Dads”. Sean talks about the show, his stand-up career, and how he balances family and work.
