Just call your dad on Father's Day before posting a photo of him on Facebook

Just call your dad on Father's Day before posting a photo of him on FacebookThis Father’s Day, call your dad.  Your dad doesn’t care how many likes you collect on Instagram or Facebook. Just pick up the phone and call the guy.  SEE ALSO: You haven't heard of this masculinity movement, but it's exactly what men need right now Listen, I get it — you want to show all your friends what a total stud your dad was in his 20s or share a cute childhood, family photo where you look completely adorable and your sister is in peak awkward stage.  But before you post a photo on social media, let him hear your voice. Imagine how many likes this guy would get on Instagram. My sister is going to be so mad. He wants to talk to you, not spend 30 minutes trying to figure out how Instagram works, only to see 12 "❤️❤️❤️omg so cute!" comments from people he doesn't know.  SEE ALSO: Dad jokes, ranked You might say "but I don't have much to talk to my dad about." Have you ever talked to an 8-year-old? They say some stupid things and your dad used to listen to you talk
all the time. As a kid, I spent hours explaining my high-level thoughts about
American Gladiators, and you know what? He just listened (and then took me to Costco for a $ 1 hot dog).  Even better than just talking? Ask him a question. Ask him about his day, his life, the latest season of
Blue Bloods, whatever — you'll learn something. And maybe you'll discover an even better story to share about him for the 'gram. WATCH: Dads everywhere will love the Avengers themed Thor toolbox

Argentina call off controversial World Cup friendly with Israel after campaign targeted at Messi

Argentina call off controversial World Cup friendly with Israel after campaign targeted at MessiArgentina has called off their World Cup warm-up match with Israel following pressure from Palestinian football officials and international campaign groups. The friendly had been planned for Saturday in the contested city of Jerusalem, but the team announced they would not be taking part. The sold-out game was opposed by Palestinians, who claim the eastern part of the city, annexed by Israel, as the capital of their future state. However, the Israeli embassy in Argentina blamed what it called "threats and provocations" against Barcelona superstar Lionel Messi. Jibril Rajoub, head of the Palestinian football association, had encouraged fans to burn shirts bearing Messi's name if he decided to play. He said on Wednesday that the decision was a "red card from everyone to the Israelis". Messi has previously expressed support for the Palestinian cause. During the 2014 conflict, the UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador shared on his Facebook a picture of an injured Palestinian child and pleaded for the violence to stop. Messi holding six-year-old Afghan boy Murtaza Ahmadi in Doha upon Barcelona's arrival to play a friendly match against Saudi Arabian side Al-Ahli Credit: AFP The Palestinian Football Federation – which had urged Messi specifically not to take part – welcomed the scrapping of the game, insisting sport should not "be a tool for politicians and for political extortion". The decision comes weeks after Israeli forces shot dead at least 60 Palestinians protested on the Israel-Gaza border. "In the end, they've done right thing, and this is behind us," Argentina striker Gonzalo Higuain told ESPN. "Health and common sense come first. We felt that it wasn't right to go." Miri Regev, Israel's culture minister, accused the Palestinians of terrorism, and evoked the massacre of Israeli Olympians at Munich in 1972 as a comparison. Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu had called Argentine President Mauricio Macri and urged him to intervene, to no avail. "It's unfortunate the soccer knights of Argentina did not withstand the pressure of the Israeli-hating inciters, whose only goal is to harm our basic right to self-defense and bring about the destruction of Israel," said Defense Minister Avigdor Lieberman. "We will not yield before a pack of anti-Semitic terrorist supporters," Israeli President Reuven Rivlin said it was a sad morning for Israeli sports fans, including his own grandchildren. "But there are values that are greater than even Messi. The politicisation of the Argentinean move worries me greatly," he said. About | The two-state solution Opposition figures, however, accused Israel's headline-seeking sports minister of bringing on the politicisation of the sporting event by insisting on moving the game from Haifa to contested Jerusalem and by trying to orchestrate a photo-op with Messi. Israel captured east Jerusalem, in the 1967 Mideast war and annexed the area in a move that is not internationally recognised. Israel considers the entire city to be its capital, while the Palestinians seek east Jerusalem as the capital of a future state. Israel has largely fended off the boycott campaign, with only a small number of artists and organisations shunning the country. Argentina's snubbing would appear to be the boycott movement's greatest achievement thus far. The grassroots movement advocates boycotts, divestment and sanctions against Israel in what supporters say is a way to promote Palestinian rights through nonviolent means. Israel says the campaign goes beyond Israeli occupation of lands claimed by the Palestinians and masks a deeper aim of delegitimizing or even destroying the country. It has formed a government ministry whose primary mission is to combat the boycott movement. Argentina opens its Group D campaign in Russia against Iceland on June 16. They then plays Croatia on June 21 and Nigeria on June 26. It is unclear whether Argentina will play another warmup, or if it will arrive to Moscow ahead of schedule.
