Dear Friends,

A little missive from me – void of politics – about this football season.

I love football. I played in high school and some at the University of Delaware. What is interesting to me is how it brings people together in support of their respective teams, regardless of politics. I have been a University of Delaware fan most of my life.

The best player, in my opinion, that ever played for Delaware was Joe Flacco! Joseph Vincent Flacco is now the quarterback for the Cleveland Browns. He played college football at Delaware after transferring from Pittsburgh and was drafted by the Baltimore Ravens in the first round of the 2008 NFL draft – where he won a Super Bowl!

Flacco, after an injury, eventually leaving the Baltimore Ravens and able to recuperate, was picked up briefly by the NY Jets. Eventually he was let go and thought his career was over. Then the phone rang and the Cleveland Browns hired Joe Flacco where he has led the team to a remarkable 11 and 5 record and a wild card spot in this year’s playoffs. Flacco has unified the team behind him and has played magnificently.  Cleveland fans are ecstatic!

Folks, Joe Flacco’s comeback is really a cool thing and I am touting the Cleveland Browns as the DARK HORSE in the coming playoffs . Wouldn’t it be fun to see him in a Super Bowl again?? He is a great guy and the epitome of what a pro athlete should be like.


What do you think? As always your comments are welcome and appreciated.

Yours truly,
