Frank Gifford, football Hall of Famer and husband of Today Show co-host Kathie Lee, spent a bonding weekend with pin-up USC student son Cody, relaxing poolside. The family, who have had their share of scandal, most noticeably when Frank was caught in his own 'Wienergate' affair with a married airline stewardess who, with the connivance of the Globe newspaper, entrapped him in a New York hotel room, certainly seem to have weathered that particular storm.
As they lay in the sun Frank, now 80, well aware of his checkered past, said to his son, an aspiring film director, "One day you'll be writing a book about your mama .... and papa."
Cody, now 21, who appeared on TV with his parents when he was a youngster, responded: "No way. You are a great dad. You were always around a lot more than other dads."
Another touching touchdown for Frank.
