John Mackey story

So it's nothing profound or anything...but I met him in 1993 when I was up visiting 'Cuse as a senior in high school.  He was signing an autobiographical video he had just released at the SU bookstore, and my friend (GCM238)'s dad had us go over there and meet him, and he explained to us the importance of who he was.  At that point I knew more about his history as a Baltimore Colt than as a Syracuse Orangemen, but that would soon change.  I enrolled at SU the following year and the rest of my Syracuse fandom followed from that.  He remains the only actual Syracuse legend that I've met in person (except for the one time I said hi to Coach Boeheim at Wegmans, haha).

Enclosed is the pic of the signed D.O. copy that he wrote for me.  I don't remember much other than that he was a very kind and gracious guy at the signing, and I loved hearing him talk about Ernie Davis years later on ESPN's Sportscentury documentary about the Elmira Express.
