what I respect is that he's not out there just catching and racking up stats, but several times I witnessed him making blocks for his teamates! He sets the example of an all around team leader and someone to look up to! Way to Go Simon we're lucky to have you in B.C.
The more I learn about Da G-man the more I respect him! I read a article where his goal was to make a difference in the CFL not abandon ship at the first NFL carrot dangled in his face, like so many others quick to abandon the CFL, only to find that they are a small fish in a huge pond in the NFL! I would really like to meet the G-man one day soon and shake his hand! He's one of those rare players that stand out in this league as 1 in a million! not many sports stars I respect these days, but he's 1 of them and the CFL and the Lions are darn lucky to have him!
Got to meet Jim Young at halftime when he was signing autographs outside section 11.
My first Lions game was in 1979 against Calgary.
Lions trailing by 6 with 40 seconds to go and Joe Paopao hooks up for 2 long gains with Harry Holt. On the game's final play he hits Young for the game winning TD.
Meeting "Dirty 30" and relating that experience with him just added to a great evening. :rockin:
