I thought during a gloomy week to be a Dolphins fan I'd share a pretty cool story with you.

I just got back from an NFL Press Conference at the Meadowlands stadium here in NJ. I work in PR and my company has done a lot of work with concussion so I was invited today for the governor to sign new concussion legislation.

I was able to speak to Roger Goodell, former fin Troy Vincent, and Jets owner Woody Johnson. I asked Woody what happened last night and he said he didnt want to talk about it LOL!

Troy Vincent was an incredible guy. I toid him I grew up a Dolphins fan and missed having him around. I said this was a sad week for Fin fans and he agreed. When I was getting ready to leave he called me over and asked if I wanted to go onto the field. We walked out onto the field together and he took my picture. I am going to try to post but not sure if I can!

Goodell was nice too. Very professional. Didnt get to say too much to him. Really brightened this gloomy week for me. Now Sunday Im going to the game! Go fins!!

I like that the first pick has "the Giants rule the Gridiron" and no mention of the Jets, lol.

Actually the sign switches from Jets to Giants. I told him to make sure to take the pic when the Jets wasnt up LOL.

This was the first thing I thought of. But I was working so had to keep it professional.

Congrats! Cool story.

Did you confront Roger on pushing safety as a hidden agenda to extend the season to 18 games?

Nah I couldn't. My organization is non-profit and we are dedicated to safety in athletes so we are happy he is pushing concussion safety, whatever the real agenda may be.
