Waiting for the Results
Well, the day has finally arrived for all of the voting pro football writers, when they may feel like they did as school children and their teacher would say, "Students, the test is over. Please close your books and put down your pencils."
On this day, February 2, 2008, sometime around 2 or 2:30 p.m. Mountain Time, my 20-year football career will not only have been officially declared as complete by me, but it will have been judged by all. My career will be graded, the results posted and announced to the world-signed, sealed and delivered. Hallelujah!
Truly, in some twisted, weird way -- while fighting off dinosaur-sized butterflies and sleep deprivation over the last 48 hours, and being interviewed by just about every media outlet in the nation -- I must say as I've said many times before, this experience, regardless of the results, has been nothing less than incredible. I have always been one who believed that the ride should be half the fun, regardless of your destination. However, I must admit, this ride has challenged that theory quite a bit. It has been fun, yeah.
A good example of this is right now. It's just about 1:15 a.m. here. All of my family members are sound asleep as I sit here not able to do the same; trying to type on these little keys while ignoring the rumbling in my stomach when, of everyone, I'm the one who most needs sleep.
By the time you read this, you may already know the results. Because of my great appreciation of you, the fans, it has been my great joy to share this once-in-a-lifetime experience with you. Regardless of the outcome, I hope you have enjoyed sharing this experience with me and my family; we certainly have. And, one way or the other, we'll keep living this experience together.
Let the drum roll begin.
Let me hear your thoughts, good or bad. I just want to hear from you.
