      Great presentation. Where do I send my resume?
    1. Polishguy00's Avatar
      So, are we hired?

      Cool story and presentation. Anyone else have any "Hey! That's Us!" moments during that?

      Also, I need that room with the game tape, the computer, and the wall filled with notes on each team. Andy, how much do you charge to build that? I'm hoping it the same as the residual checks I have been getting for my job as the Assistant to the Assistant Water Boy of Cris' UPS Driver.

      I'm guessing one on Mark Brunell is not going to be showing soon, huh?

      Nice pub and thanks to Cris and FedEx.

      Talk about a man cave. Wow. But where is the wet bar & beer fridge? And dancing girls?

      I like that it was filmed during week #6. Caught good glimpses of Clem's & ScottDCP's avatars.

      That was shot at NFL films headquarters while Cris was there shooting Inside the NFL. The wet bar, beer fridge and dancing girls are at my house.

      That was fantastic to watch. I remember first being struck by Cris's tremendous insight back when he was on NBC's pregame show in the 90s. There was just something a cut above about what he brought to the table. I love that he has such ambition and isn't one to rest on his laurels. We're only here for so long and he's going to make the most of it. But, somehow, he seems to be able to still have fun along the way. And it's all wrapped up with what is an honest "aw-shucks" persona.

      Now, when we get the emails saying access to the site is $9.99 per month going forward, my man-crush might fade a little, but until then, I tip my hat to this humble, driven fellow. It's so much fun to be part of his community.

      Awesome Cris. I Love how he is a business man. Cris YOU NEED to speak at Rookie Symposiums. They need to know AT THAT POINT how to successfully manage their life and career during and after football. You mastered it man. I love how this site is a hybrid of forums, blogs, chat, news and it stays respectable and calm. Great Stuff.

      Many, Many Thanks to you and Andy for a Great Site. Cool Stuff.

      P.S. LOVE the shot of my Week Six entry of "Journal Of A Mad NFL Fan". Glad to blast away each week on this site with those entries!

      How did your High School team do this year? Ya'll in the playoffs? The local New Albany Eagles face Ashland this Saturday; should be an exciting night here in the Columbus, Ohio suburb.

      We have a couple of exciting things working now, unfortunately they all takes time which is a little tight right now. You guys keep this thing humming until I get a break after the wild card weekend and we will get it cranking. I wish I could tell all, but hang with us and have some fun. Now that Turk is back, all is right with the world again.

      Seriously, thanks to all of you. This has been really fun, and we have only just begun.
