Thanks...

My Dad actually got an invitation to come try out with the big club at one point, but things were different back then. He would have had to quit his job with the FEC railroad to do it, and back then good jobs weren't that easy to come by. With two young daughters (my older sisters) at home, he just couldn't take the chance.

Now if he had played on the Cards with Stan the Man, that would have been way, way cool!
