Yeah, he is a little older than I am, but my uncle was his HS Football coach, so I hung around with the guys at the field quite a bit.

Holy cow Tom!

All you guys have some cool ties to famous people!

I also forgot that my brother's friend's grandma babysat Kailee Wong, retired linebacker who was an All-American at Stanford and played for the Texans & Vikings. We all got amazing seats when the Texans played the Seahawks and we were going to meet him after the game but that game he blew his knee out, which ended his career.

High 80's is cool and it impresses the chicks but a 30 year career will do alot more for your bank account and your chances for the HOF. Is Phil as laid back as he seems?

He lives most of the time in Fla now, but comes back to Ohio often to see his mom. He lives in a cabin in the woods and stiff walks to the post office every morning.

I saw him take the mound at least 50 times 1968-1971 and was impressed each and every time. Though 39 of those resulted in Braves losses, he is a very plesant memory.

I went to junior college, lived in the dorms, took classes with, and went fishing with John Lackey of the Angels.

One of my best friends married Brandon Wood's sister, which is one reason why I collect his cards.

Hunter "The Punter" Smith from the Colts, and I went to church and youth group together when I was in middle school and high school.

No way! Lackey will win the Cy Young soon and Wood will develop soon. I'm not a fan of fishing but I would so go with Lackey!
