    Could this be a good Omen?

    Hear me out. As some of you may know, I live just outside of Houston, TX....or what I am calling now, Patriots South. 

    Anyhow, my son came home from school today and was very excited. I asked him, "did you have an extra good day at school today?"... He says, "yes dad, I won a race, beating the fastest kid in my class, and now I am the fastest kid in my class."...this all happened during gym class by the way.

    i said, "that's great news, congrats". he told me thanks and then said, "but dad, that isn't even the best part."....he then told me that because he won, he got to pick a prize out of the gift bag at school. It's a big sack with about 25-30 small gifts the teachers let kids pick out of. The key here is you reach your hand in and just pull whatever out without looking at it...I asked him, "what did you pick"...he said, "a Jamie Collins rookie player card"..."wow" I said...don't ask me how Jamie Collins rookie player card ever got into that bag, especially in Houston..but it did. 

    A good omen For the pats? Maybe an extra special day for Jamie?

    Yeah, I was like, maybe this is a good omen.

    anyhow, I have confiscated the card and it is sitting next to my Brady autographed baseball hat and my Yazstremski autographed baseball...maybe I can track Jamie down to sign it for him.

    Tell your kid to hold on to that, that card is going to be worth a lot.

    Very nice story! I remember when I was the fastest person in my class many many years and many many pounds ago.

    Excellent story.  Southern Miss isnt too far form there...  maybe he has more fans around there.    Great player based on what he showed the last few weeks....

    Thanks for sharing!  Great stuff.  If Collins has a huge game I'll be thinking about this!

    Russ, why bring that 5hit to this post. This is a feel good post, a Disney/Kodak moment. I must wash myself thoroughly before kissing my son goodnight.

    agree



    Disagree, BB is not a good GM. It's all a mirage.  Trade the card immediately.   Any player BB picks that is good is blind luck, regardless if he personally watches tape with the player.

    BB is mediocre as a GM. There is just no way any player can be good here. Just Brady.

    Babe, Mt Hurl, TCal, Shizzles, TFB12 and others told the board so.



    If someone handed you a winning powerball ticket and a bus full of playboy bunnies you would find a way to be negative about it. 

     

    Just say nice story and move on bro...

    That is a cool story! I hope it's an Omen and if it is, I believe your son will have a new favorite Pats player?

    And all the really bright people that go to MIt, etc should become inventors and philanthropists and research ways to make the Planet and species a better place instead of going to work for Wall Street as they do now-in a perfect world?
