This looked fun to me while reading all of your posts, so I thought I would give it a try. Sent an email to Scott Campbell, QB for Purdue and the Pittsburgh Steelers, and he returned a package to me in 12 days. Here is a list of people I am waiting on as of right now:

Dale Samuels: returned
Bob DeMoss: returned.

Will keep you guys updated.

Found a package with my name on it yesterday, post marked West Lafayette. Bob DeMoss, Purdue QB, signed my Purdue mini-helmet. Wrote a nice thank you letter, returned the donation. DeMoss played for the NY Bulldogs in the NFL, and coached Len Dawson and Bob Griese in college. He is the first of the 12 cradle of QB's at Purdue. biggrin.gif .

Congrats on the awesome return! Keep sending em out!

Signed 8x10 from HOF Dan Fouts. The first in what hopefully becomes a long collection of signed QB's pics for my oldest son. I will post pics when I return from vacation.

Quality return from Fouts, congrats!

Back from vacation today. Had 2 mailers and 1 box waiting for me. Rick Mount signed an SI cover with him on it. The other mailer had a pic of Chuck Bednarik laying out Frank Gifford. Personalized it to my youngest son John..."This f.....ing game is over, Frank". I explained to him John was 4, so I appreciated the PG personalization laugh.gif . The box contained a Purdue mini helmet signed by Dale Samuels, one of the cradle of QB's from Purdue. I now have signed helmets from all 12 Purdue QB's who played in the NFL. Will post pics at the end of the weekend.

I got nothing. No too busy note, no RTS. He opened it, and mailed it back. mad.gif At least I got it back in a timely manner. Looks like most people have been waiting for nearly a year.

A note on the Tony Dungy scripture.....I wrote him a letter explaing some personal matters (not going into much detail at all) and how I recently turned to God and my life has since changed for the better. I told him how I try to live my life by another verse: Matthew 7:17. It says basically to be a tree that produces good fruit. Matthew 7:13-14 states the road to eternal happiness goes through a narrow gate, not a wide one. I have found this to be very inspirational for me, as well as applicable. Thank you Mr. Dungy.
