I like when people do occasional posts with the intent of finding out more about the others that hang here, or to exchange stories about other experiences. This post is in the category of the latter. Many years ago I wrote to Wayne Fontes, head coach of the Detroit Lions, suggesting a trade with his team and Ã¢â‚¬Å“myÃ¢â‚¬ New England Patriots. He hand wrote this long letter back, thanking me for taking the time to write him, and included some Lion buttons, stickers, and other Lion stuff. What a genuinely nice human being, and I thought, a good coach. I hated it when he was fired, and always had a warm spot in my heart for him. Along those same lines, in 1986, I was down in New Orleans for the Patriots Super Bowl. I was out and about and ended up in the lobby of a hotel. Standing there chatting with his wife and a friend was Howie Long. I totally must have interrupted him, but he stopped what he was doing, shook my hand, and asked all about what I was up to. He could not have been nicer. Anyway, from those points on, I always wished both of them nothing, but success, and will always remember their kindness towards me. Finally, my question: Does anybody else have a story where you had dealings with an NFL celeb., and it was positive in a similar way to that described above?
