    Re: Non-football thoughts from the Bash

    Jerr and I would love to come next year, if you will have us, I seem to be the queen of that ugly red dot.

    Jerr's family (Billy Ray, who ever I am married to) lives in St.Louis, and Jerr know's that city like the back of his hand.

    Let us us know, so we can plan for it.

    I swear Dez needs to change these red dot's to Sienna.

    OJ signed on his way into the Dome .. I know he signed for several kids .. among them were Old School's kids. He signed for us too. We figured that our chances would be better with all the players before the game, but Chris Long shined everyone on as he made his way into the Dome. Glad to hear he did sign for folks on his way out ..

    Actually she did have one ending in 116 (can't remember the first # I think it might have been 7) Apparently she found the initial experience of winning incredibly exhilarating, to the extent that it had a deleterious effect on her close-up vision -- she maintains poor lighting may have been the culprit ..

    Well, that is certainly good to hear. I'm glad he at least got to the kids coming in. I still feel bad for those kids he eyeballed and passed on after the game, but he at least got to some before.

    Yes, he definitely did some on the way in, and I'll give my own little report now:

    Before the game:
    1) OJ Did sign and talk some on the way in, I'm sure (not making any excuses) that he was probably not up to it after the game. But at least he started the day off alright.

    2) Pisa is one heck of a guy,very friendly and made sure to get everyone that wanted him to sign.

    3) Chris Draft was a character and was even trying to get the fans out there before the game fired up, very friendly and now has my respect as a person - Quinton Culberson tagged along and signed and smiled.

    4) Donnie Jones was not so talkative but did say he was "ready to go" as he signed for all the kids.

    5) Al Saunders was probably the friendliest and most talkative guy coming in (I am NOT going to discuss the game in here ) He, at least in person and before the game, was a great representative for this organization and was great for the kids. It was one kid's 11th b-day and after leaving, 15 minutes later Al came back out with a sideline cap and a program for the kid. I think that was an absolute wonderful thing to do and as an individual, was just a nice thing to do.

    6) Cory Chavous- well I can't think of the right expletive to call him. So I'll just leave it be. But as you can tell, I'm not happy with him.

    7) At least we got a small wave out of SJax (heavy sarcasm).

    8) Henry Ellard - "I love you man" - Always has been and always will be high on my list.

    9) Guy that Hubison was talking about (????) not sure either but he did the same thing before the game... lol

    10) Drew Bennett - all I can say is FU. I defended heartily from the beginning, but suffice to say, I'm through with this prick.

    11) Chris Long - to his defense was running a bit late but he did stop and sign the B-day boy's helmet real quick before running in.

    After the game:

    1) I'm completely backing up the comments about Carriker - made sure to get absolutely EVERY person on both sides of the gate and just appeared and talked very down to earth - and even said "here you go sweetheart" to my daughter - I think she has a new crush.

    2) Josh Brown - From what I could see - he appeared to get everyone that wanted him to sign.

    3) Jonathan Wade - laughed off the fact that everyone was screaming "STEVEN" (gotta be the dreads) and signed anyhow.

    4) Others have a better representation of some of the other players since by this point I was waiting to find Chris Long and was focusing on watching inside the building. TekeRam filled you all in on the rest, and needless to say, my jersey now has a Chris Long signature.

    Bottom line:

    My daughter had an absolutely wonderful experience for her first game ever, and we're focusing on the positives. Some of the players and coaches that were friendly enough to make it a memorable situation; I applaud you!! The other players that chose not to be fan friendly, oh well. Fortunately the others are who made it great, did just that. My daughter probably had one of her most memorable and enjoyable times so far in her short life (mine too honestly). And it would be wrong of me to not put members of the Clan above even the players and coaches at this point. You all made us feel welcome and what a great experience!!!

    Good point, and one I forgot to mention. I believe certain members of the media are not enamored with Wade, but I must admit he did handle the masses screaming "Steven" and "Mr. Jackson" quite well. He laughed it off, and kept on signing.
    2) Pisa is one heck of a guy,very friendly and made sure to get everyone that wanted him to sign.
    Yet another chance to share my Pisa camp story. I love telling this story, but I'll keep it short.

    My wife and I along with our (then) 6-month old son went to Macomb a few years ago. Met several players but none (with the exception of Looker) were as friendly as Pisa Tinoisamoa. He signed for us, and played with my son, even talking baby talk to him. Then he asked if he could hold him. Think about it. A 240-lb man, with a criminal record, who chose to pursue a career in which it is his job to inflict maximum violence on another human being, has just asked me if he can place the fruit of my loins & first-born son in his punish distributing arms. Would I, as a father, allow that?!? Frig yea! I practically threw my boy at Pisa!

    I can't wait for him to get a little older so I can tell him that story.

    It was also great to meet you and Liz, Steve. My daughter absolutely LOVED talking to Liz which was another plus among many. I can't even begin to take credit for the autographs, I think I created a little monster, though....she had so much fun. I think ANYONE could have signed her hat and she would've been happy about it.

    So NOT true. This was our first and we were welcomed by everyone with open arms. I'm sure the same WILL be said by you after you attend next year's bash..
