Hall of Famer

If there is one phrase that I never, ever thought would ever be applied to me, it is “Hall of Famer.”  It’s not that I don’t have dillusions of grandiour, because I do.  I just realistically never imagined that I’d ever get to use that phrase for myself.

Well, in case you haven’t guessed by now, in a few short months, I will be able to say that I am a member of a Hall of Fame.  It’s not an individual induction so I guess it’s not “me” in particular that is a member of the Hall of Fame, but rather a team that I was a part of.  The football (American) team that I played on as a freshman at my alma mater is being inducted into the Hall of Fame at homecoming this year.  I got my official invite letter today.

We were the first team to win the division and a berth in the playoffs in something like 60 years.  Or maybe it was since the 60’s.  I can’t remember.  It was exciting though.

So, it’s not me in particular that is Hall of Fame worthy, but rather something that I was a part of.  And isn’t that just as good if not better?  I think so.

I’d like to congratulate my fellow teammates on the 1997 Jamestown College Jimmies Football roster.  We’re Hall of Famers!
