Dads are many things to many people. When they're at their best, they can seem like superheroes to their young children. Heck, sometimes even their adult children can be wowed.

That's a fingertip grab of small, yet epic proportions. And it's a save that will pay off for years down the road. The father avoids having to live with the YouTube shame of letting his child hit the pavement on his watch, and the child avoids the embarrassment of becoming the "baby that face-planted on YouTube." Everybody wins. Until dad starts looking for endorsement deals and won't give the kid a cut.
