This of course was before they switched to Charter flights so they were all standing in line checking in for their flight. I noticed Jack Ham standing off by himself against the wall so I went up and shook his hand and wished him luck of course. He was very quiet but thanked me. We were early for my flight (my Dad always liked to get to places early) so we went to the coffee shop for breakfast and we sat at the counter next to Lambert who was plowing through a plate of eggs, bacon etc. It was obvious he DID NOT want his breakfast interrupted so I didn't say anything and as a long haired college kid I remember feeling very intimidated just being in his presence. It was a thrill though and I'll never forget it.

    I also enjoyed the "Jefferson Street Joe" Gilliam reminiscence. What a talent. And what a waste that his career was derailed by drugs. Many don't realize how the Rooneys and Chuck Noll were so ahead of their time in giving black QBs a chance in the league.
    I would have said something to Lambert even if it was a go Steelers. Probably wouldn't have went up to him and disturbed his eats. I wouldn't do that to anyone. If I want to bug them I always figured that is what training camp was for.

    Down in a hole and I don't know if I can be saved
    See my heart I decorate it like a grave
    You don't understand who they thought
    I was supposed to be
    Look at me now a man
    Who won't let himself be

    I always thought Haley got a bit of a bad rap here. Granted he earned a reputation for not playing well with others, but the offense was better and certainly more well-rounded under him than The Bruce.
