When they opened the envelope showing it was us, I can not remember ever reacting to anything like I did to that. I am not at all ashamed to admit that I started jumping around and screaming like a little girl. I knew what it meant for this team, and how much more important than even a cup was.

If you want some fun, and have some time, go look back at the Rags and Flyer boards during that draft lottery and just before, and you will get some clue why they became as they are about him. The school girl gushing about him before they found out he went to us did a complete 180 degree turn once those balls fell as they did and it has been a lot of the same ever since.
I've done that before, those threads provide quality lulz
