    My son's team won their quarter-final playoff game today 17-14. They trailed the entire game and won it on their last drive that started with 10:17 let in the game and scored with 1:51 left in the game. As if I wasn't already riding high after the game, I went over and introduced myself to one of the greatest lineman to play the game... Jackie Slater! :woooot: He is the offensive line coach for Azusa Pacific University. I had a friend take a picture and am waiting for him to send it to me.

    GO RAMS!

    Congratulations on your Great Day and good luck to your son's team on the rest of their playoffs! I only wish you could have talked Jackie Slater into signing with the Rams for the rest of the season (they sure could use an OL like him/He was one of the best!)!

    That is a GREAT DAY.

    I used to think that I would never be as excited about a win as I was when the Rams won the SB, but I figured out what "real" excitement was when my boys started playing.

    Good luck to your son the rest of the way!


    Jackie is such a quality Guy. Talking to him always made me feel like being a Ram Fan was appreciated. Such a Great Player too.
