Rare Dude Artifact
Well, in an effort to steer this blog away from high-stakes gambling, I want to tell you about a special iten I received in the mail Friday afternoon. The return address was from Dude Legend Jon Huntley, and when I opened it up, I saw an original letter-to-the-editor from his days at The Chronic (not the newspaper clip, but the actual letter). From February 1999, it was an endorsement letter from the women's hoops team promoting some DSG candidate. Stapled to the letter was a sheet with 14 autographs; yes, I am now in possession of autographs of the original Journey that brought us all together. Hilary Howard, Nicole Erickson, Michele VanGorp, Jenn Forte, Janee Hayes... they're all here! If ever the dudes have a museum, I think this is the first item to go under six-inch-thick bullet-proof glass.
Oh, and since I was out of town during the Romo fiasco, I just want to say I hope this puts to rest all Brady-Romo comparisons. When Brady fumbled in his first big playoff game, he had the decency to do so in a fashion that would allow the play to be overturned due to an obscure rule no one had ever heard of. Romo, meanwhile, is a pathetic impostor. Phillip Rivers, you're next!
