Firstly, I'll give a shout out to Bro Namath over at GGN. I posted about the rivalry, then asked for donations. And he responded. It speaks volumes about his character however, I still hate the jets. Thanks Bro,....class act.
What can I say tonight was amazing. Full access as the players came in & out of the hotel lobby for the better part of 2 hours. I went there with three Jersey local DolFans and it was all of their's 1st time in such a signing, picture taking spree. There was also a couple of friends from The Deep End there too for their 1st away game and they had a room at the team's hotel. With all these 1st timers around I was totally feeding off their energy, hence the no sleeping. Which I should be doing, as I am leading the charge for the 1st wave at 8AM sharp,....in full make-up. Anyways,.....somebody tell me to quite whining ! There was only another 6/8 DolFans and about 4 Ebay'ers ( which upon reflection should have gotten a few choice words,.......or perhaps a sharp elbow as one was a bit pushy ).
Autographs, pictures, face time,.....everybody who was there cleaned up. Balls, helmets ( full & minis), hats, jerseys, pictures, and even my sign,.........autographs everywhere. I focused on getting as many signitures on my DCC sign as possible. All the while I still got some 8x10 signed and all three mini helmets I had.
I also got tons of new pics which with a bit of my story I was warmly received and some players remembered me with some cues.
Lets start with the broadcasters.
Care to take guess ???
Linebackers Koa Misi & former Buckeye Austin Spitler
Speaking of QB's, I got Bob Griese to sign my throwback mini which was a total thrill. However he wouldn't take picture and seemed hate every second of 2 -3 minutes of signing he did for everyone. I'll chalk it up to a bad day, but I still got the back of his head. Thanks for autograph Bob, sorry to put you out,....
It was no big deal, he signed a bunch of stuff which I'm sure mad everyone happy ( to say the least ).
6Am is coming fast, go to the DCC and help the cause,.......
Time to get 4 hours sleep,....
