The players were ecstatic. It seemed like the whole team was there, although I don't remember seeing Art Monk, Doug Williams, George Rogers or Jay Schroeder. It was over twenty years ago so my memory is a little fuzzy. I'm pretty sure that most of the Hogs, Darrell Green, Daryl Grant, Neal Olkewicz, Monte Coleman, Alvin Walton, Todd Bowles, Gary Clark, Ricky Sanders, Don Warren and any other guy that you can imagine was there. Timmy Smith wasn't quite yet very well known, but we may have crossed paths. Who knows? The guy I remember most was Wally Klein. He was a big dude and really friendly. I remember Vernon Dean too. Sonny Jurgensen was there filming a show. I was ten years old and felt like life couldn't get any better. I was thrilled to say the least and I'll remember that experience as long as I live.

Very cool story... you should have had Dave65Butz as your screen name

Thank you. You're right about the screen name. I picked Warren85Ellard to bring some pride back to the #85. Lloyd is now gone. .... I'm not sure if I'm crazy about Ocho85Sinco.

I met Dave this summer when he did a signing at a local store. He was cool... and had a BIG HEAD

He was definitely a big man. Very quiet too. I have a few of his autographs too. My favorite is on a black and white picture where he's kneeling on a practice field, rocking the mustache. I guess you would call it a publicity photo. I hope they're still at my parents house. I need to go get them framed a.s.a.p..
