I never met Archie, but Bobby was right on.

This team needs to toughen up and turn it around, or we're so 1 and done.

Re: Hebert says it well

I said in another post, pretty much every NFC team, in the play offs this year, have laid up a duck at some point. Vikes lose to the Bears, Eagles lose to the Raiders, Cardinals lose to the Seahawks (i think). It happens. I agree that it wasn't the best time to do it, especially at home, but look at it this way. Maybe now when teams do come to play us in the dome, they get a little too confident, and it works to our advantage.

Make no mistake, that game Sunday was terrible, but as long as these guys learn from their mistakes, instead of dwelling in them, then half the battle is already won. I know I've learned from mine.

What's popular is not always right, and what's right is not always popular.....

Re: Hebert says it well

I hung out and drank with Rob Trujillo once, at the crowbar in sf. Did the same with Stephen Carpenter, at the press club in sacramento. That's my only cool celebrity moments.

Re: Hebert says it well

First Archie encounter...

There was a girl I knew in the neighborhood and school who had a father who was a big Ole Miss alumnus. Archie had pretty much become a legend by the end of his Jr. year, and during the spring of the following year, that girl's father invited my best friend and me to go along with him to the spring game and awards banquet in Oxford.

We attended the game that afternoon. We stopped along the way at Johnny Vaught's house, but unforutunately I had to wait in the car as my friend's father went inside and visited with Mr. Vaught.

Later that evening, we went to the awards banquet, and as we were waiting to eat, they asked that everyone bow their heads for the invocation. Archie just happened to be passing by our table when the request was made, so he stopped and sat down right across from me and my buddy as we were praying. I didn't pay much attention to the prayer as I was busy poking my buddy in the ribs to make sure he was aware of the legend who was sitting across from us. I couldn't help but notice that Archie noticed my giddyness and was smiling at me. Made my day.

Whether you think you can or think you can't...you're right!

2nd Archie encounter...

It was my Sr. year in high school, and Archie had just finished his Sr. year at Ole Miss and had just been drafted by the Saints. It was spring time, and my buddy, (yes, the same guy that I went to the spring game with) and I were playing tennis one day. All the sudden he stops and looks at his watch. He starts running toward me during the middle of a game, and I ask him what's up.

It's then that he informs me that our DB coach who was in his 1st year as coach right out of Ole Miss told him that Archie was gonna be down at the Red & White grocery store up in North Gulfport, and said he was going to meet him there at around 6. It was around 5:30 then, so we hopped in his VW beatle and beat it down to the store.

When we got there, sure enough, there was our coach standing there talking to Archie. He introduced us, and we talked for a few seconds about our team and what positions we played and what not, and then we asked for his signature. We didn't have any paper or anything, but I still had the tennis balls in my pocket, so I got him to sign those. I wish I knew where those tennis balls were today.

Whether you think you can or think you can't...you're right!

Re: Hebert says it well

Barry Bonds encounter...

It was somewhere in the early 90's and it was the 2nd ever interleague game played in the Big A as it was known then in Anaheim. (The first game was the night before) I brought the family to see the Giants play the Angels, and I can't even remember who won but it seems like the Giants did.

Anyway, after the game, I brought my oldest son who was around 8 or 9 at the time down to the Giants locker room exit to try to get autographs. I have been a Giant fan myself all my life as the first team I ever played for in pee-wee baseball was the SF Giants.

We waited for the players as they came out, only problem there was a fence between us and them, so they had to come over to sign if you were to get an autograph, and not many players were inclined to do that.

I got tired of that, so I took my son around to a parking lot that had a gate that was opened where the players cars were parked. I saw J.T. Snow get in his car with his girlfriend, so I snuck in there with my son. An attendant saw what we were up to, but surprisingly turned his back.

I had a straight shot at the path where the Giant players were walking to their bus, but I just waited patiently for the possibility of seeing Barry. Low and behold the man comes walking by. I swear, he is much bigger when you are standing next to him. The bus is blowing it's horn, and I pop over there with my son and hold up a pennant from the game commemorating the 1st ever interleague series in the Big A, and Barry informs me he doesn't have time...the bus might leave him. I'm thinking, "Right...and then the driver would be looking for a job the next day."

Whether you think you can or think you can't...you're right!
