So i was am at a family funeral today. I had a cousin who i was close with died. So i show up with my brother and my parents and we do the usual "hello, how are you?" "routine. And i am talking to some family members, and one of them is a cousin of mine whose name is mary. And i find out that she works for the buffalo bills. Which i find out, and me and her start talking about everything, from drafts to free agency, to business in the NFL. This is one of the coolest people i have ever met in my life. So then she goes, "Have you met my aunt?" No i have not, mary responds with well she is here, So i end up meeting her aunt who is Ralph Wilson's wife. Im like holy ****, so me and her start talking about the draft and everything in the NFL. By the end of the night i have a business card, and both of them telling me i should shoot them a resume and they will see what they can do. I am still speechless about all of this.

That is awesome, get a job as an intern/scouting assistant, find Buffalo the next great phenom, ride the momentum all the way to a position of power, and then hire me.

No seriously that's really cool, drop everything and pursue this lead with great tenacity.

what is really cool is that i am also pursuing a job with the Milwaukee Admirals. Which made it seem like i was just not talking to talk and that i had a legitimate want to be in the sports industry.

In your interview when they ask if you are you prepared to travel to Toronto for work say yes.

What kind of stuff is on your resume? With a recommendation from a Wilson relative you could definitely get into the Bills organization, this is really just great for you man, congratulations.

Tell her your first moves would be to throw a boat load of money at T.O. to make him a Bill for life, send their 1st round draft pick to Philly for Mike Vick, and bring in Sherm Lewis and his "bingo-style" offensive mind.

Ride that momentum to a career in the NFL, and you'll be set.

Canadians do wonders for our local economy. Plus I'm honourary Canadian seeking full citizenship. Really the city is fantastic, I'm sure you'll enjoy it, shall you come here. Even in my travels, I've always been an ambassador for my hometown, the city I would die for.

And it's Wingfest. At Pilot (Dunn Tire/Coca Cola) Field every summer.

It depends on the level of the game (factors include: opposition, day of the week, time)

There's...
Value (cheapest)
Bronze
Silver
Gold
Platinum (most expensive)

Platinum is basically Boston/Montreal/Toronto

TACKLE
01-30-2010, 02:19 AM
You could be the assistant to the traveling secretary.

Anyway, congrats man. If this is something you want to do just go for it. On your resume make sure to cite SWDC posters as references.

roidrunner
01-30-2010, 09:35 AM
my references are the former attorney general for the state of wisconsin, and the former ambassador to south korea.
