    Me with Mike Nolan today in Mobile at Senior Bowl Practice

    I met a lot of prominent NFL people today, including most of the Miami Dolphins coaching staff. Met Sparano, but didn't get to get a picture. I also met Rex Ryan, Dick LeBeau, Romeo Crennel, Steve Spagnulo, Mike Smith, Marvin Lewis, a bunch of the Broncos, Panthers, and Chiefs scouts. Most of the Lions coaching staff. I got to sit next to mean joe green for both practices and see his super bowl rings.

    Two funny stories, I met Mike Smith at the end of the first practice. During the second practice I was walking into the bathroom as he was walking out and I didn't really notice who he was and I just said what's up to him or whatever and he said what's up back and then he was like "you're still here?" and I'm like damn...Mike Smith recognizing me lol. But by far the funniest part of the day I'm pretty sure Pete Carrol heard me call him a douchebag because I didn't realize he was sitting near me.

    Unfortunately, no, Mean Joe didn't throw me his T-Shirt.

    And yeah, it was a total blast. Being in Mobile, devoid of any professional sports, it's rare to get a chance to meet any of these guys. But for one week a year my little home town is the epicenter of the NFL world and I always try my best to take advantage of that.

    considering your body type you may want to get a different number on your phins jersey. Might I suggest 95 or 65 :wink2:

    Momentarily thereafter he left the section never to return. The joke we had going between us was that he was going to go buy Ladd Stadium just so he could kick me out. But no, he didn't say anything. And the thing is I would never call him that to his face because he seems like a really nice guy. I was even respectful when I met Rex Ryan. But Carrol did coach the Pats, Jets and USC...

    Well at least he didn't make a scene and pull a power move so that speaks to his character.

    Also as far as Rex goes he actually seems like he'd be a pretty fun guy to be around.

    Hey man, I was out there trying to network and make some contacts and all that. I wasn't about to be rude to anyone, except for those I was unintentionally rude to. But that doesn't mean I didn't think of a few things to say to him. And of all the things I could have said, the one I think would have pissed him off the most was simply "Bet you didn't think you'd be here right now."

    Was definitely an NFL geeks field day. Gonna try to hit up the North practice in the morning before I go to work and see who else I can meet. Rumor has it Jerry Jones is somewhere in Mobile.

    So what was Rex eating? Were they trying to keep Mt Cody away from him at all costs? Did they jump and do a chest bump resulting in an earthquake?

    Nawww man. The thing that would've probably pissed him off the most would've been if you would've asked him if he liked your Ronnie Brown jersey? :wink2:

    Seriously though...kudos to you for getting to rub elbows with all these guys. That pic with Nolan is money bro. I like it. :up:

    I suspect the key was that Nolans appropriate attire satisfied those generally prone to apprehension.
    Now if he was wearin a suit....:shifty:

    LOL Rex Ryan actually seemed like a really nice guy. Him and Spagnulo were joking around and I just happened to be walking by and that's how I met those two. I know he's the enemy and I'm not a big fan honestly, but he seems like a cool enough person. As for Mount Cody, he actually looked really good in practice.

    It was definitely an experience I'll never forget. I mean, in years past I've met a few coaches here and there during Senior Bowl week but never quite like what happened yesterday.

    Him and his brother Ron are both large men. I saw Rob but he seemed to be busy so I didn't want to interrupt him.

    I just read this and it took me a minute to realize you meant the picture (right?).

    Since this whole thing was really cool I will not lower myself (which is hard for me not to do) to say some of the awful jokes I had before I read it.

    Congrats my friend!
