Hello all,

I wanted to get you all excited! True, we have the summer to go, yet, but it’s right around the corner and that makes me REALLY happy. Before then, though, we have the NFL Draft/NFLPA events. Wow, it feels wrong just typing that. I sure hope they figure out a way to split the money that starts with a B ( as in BILLION), before the start of the  NFL season.

Speaking of the draft I got a chance to spend some time with Julio Jones of Alabama the other evening and he is just as special as everyone thinks he is. I got to interview him for 2 years; I watched him go from barely speaking a word to really opening up. It was truly a remarkable metamorphosis to watch. I don’t pretend to know exactly what team will draft him, but I do know that they will get a true warrior in Julio Jones.

Lots of stuff on the horizon, can’t wait to share it all with you. Soon, my friends, soon!

Until then, enjoy this glorious time of year. I know I am!!!
