Joe Delaney's College coach and a former teammate (whom lockered next to him) will be coming to the Banquet on Sept 27th. They will be speaking briefly about Joe and giving a presentation. Additionally, they'll have several Joe Delaney related items from the NorthWestern State trophy case on display. This is a huge development for us. We've been trying to make this happen for years.

We'll also be showing the segment ESPN created for the 20th Anniversary of the tragedy last summer. 37 Forever helped put this segment together, in fact - it has been said that it wouldn't have aired without our assistance.

Finally, the Chiefs Alumni banquet is that weekend and they'll be including information about 37 Forever's beginnings and progress in their presentation to all the former players.

There are still some tickets available. Check the stickied thread at the top of the Lounge for details.

That is absolutely too damned cool.

Bob Dole certainly hopes that this year is the year that we finally get over that "hump" and really start rolling with this thing. Stuff like this can do nothing but help that happen!

Good idea. ESPN does and they intend to run the segment again during the weekend.

I thought they might want to "follow up" or something.

Bob Dole agrees. Post your draft press release here and we'll have a group proofread of it before you send it.

Actually, I can get a press release done today.

If that's okay with everyone, who should receive it and who will be sending it out to the media.

Just now. This is great! Other than football cards I don't think I've seen any authentic Joe Delaney memorabilia, that is, items that identify/personify Joe. Looking forward to this big time!!!

Whoever is the parody Jenson17 is forgetting to log back out of that user profile before responding to him/herself.

They also butchered the kcnut piece, the nut don't use punctuation.

Mark M
09-17-2004, 02:56 PM
BTW, what is the name of the coach? I need that for the press release. The player's name would also be great, as would any mention of former/current Chiefs who will be there.

Thanks!
