    Actually. It was a plain white cardboard mailer with no return address on it. My first thought was "WTF is this?" I didn't look at the zip code inside the machine stamped postage to see where it was from. If I had, I'd have known.

    Awesome story, always great to hear/see things like this. A few years ago a colleague of mine was preparing to retire and her and her husband are huge Clemson Tigers fans (which is fairly rare in Atlantic Canada). On a whim I decided to email the Clemson Athletics Department and ask if Dabo Swinney might be willing to write a short note to her for the occasion and we could present it to her at the retirement party.

    Didn't hear anything for a few weeks and I basically forgot about it but sure enough, shortly before the retirement party, a letter (on very impressive letterhead) arrived "From the Desk of Dabo Swinney" with a very nice message to her and autograph. The funny thing was that for weeks afterwards she did not believe it was real. I actually had to show her the email I sent to Clemson before she believed it. Always had a soft spot for Clemson after that happened.

    I've actually emailed the Stacey James 3 times for people other than myself. I know for certain that 2 of the 3 times the Patriots reached out to help them. Some of you may remember @nabwong and his daughter, Nadia. I reached out to Mr. James on behalf of them and they got some cool stuff. Another friend of mine passed while suddenly a few years back while shoveling the snow off his roof and the Patriots and Bruins made some "anonymous" donations to help the family out.

    Robert, Jonathan and Myra Kraft, Vince Wilfork, Tom Brady (briefly), Vince Wilfork, Ty Law (several times in a personal setting), John Cafferty, Dan Koppen, Andre Tippett, Bill Spaceman Lee, Oil Can Boyd, Terry O’Reilly, Lyndon Byers, J Mascis, some others I guess... no really great stories unfortunately. They were all clothed.

    IMO, he will after he is inducted into the HOF. He is too much of a football historian & teacher to not leave behind some details RE: his legacy.

    I can only hope that he airs some dirty laundry concerning 345 Park Avenue....
