    My co-worker does a lot of charity things, like "Make a Wish." Anyway, he was at Children's Hospital this weekend handing out gifts to the kids. Guess who showed up? Cody, Aric Goodman, and DiLallo. Also Cody's sister. They stayed for 4 hours handing out gifts and signing autographs.

    (I'm pretty sure it was Goodman and DiLallo because it was the team's "kicker and punter.") So, I hope I got the correct kids. I am sure about Cody and his sis though.

    That's great to hear. We've definitely got some great young men in our program. And Dan and Misti seem to have done a wonderful job as parents.

    That's a good story. Cody's obviously a great kid, it's nice to hear the others joined him too.

    I went to that make-a-wish event as a patient in 2002 and if it's what I think it is then that's really cool that they were there. Basically, they put on a "store" for all of the kids with life-threatening illnesses to shop for gifts for their families and they do it right there in the hospital so that all of the in-patient kids can participate too. Each kid gets their own person to help them go around and pick out donated things to give each member of their family and/or their friends and then they wrap it all up for you. It helps a lot of families get some normalcy to the holiday season and it's one of MANY great things that make-a-wish does for kids and families.

    Just a note for everyone: Make-a-Wish is not only for the kids who are dying. It is for any child/teen who is facing a life threatening illness. I remember people looking at me differently when I told them anything about it and then I had to explain.

    I know there were 6-7 guys from the team who made a stop to an elementary school in Aurora last week - forgot which one, but an excited teacher told me about it.

    I think the players are required to do so much community service per year - these events are well organized by the teams - the kids get "service hours" and the team develops some rapport with the community. its a win win all around.

    Wonder if Kellen Moore will come see me in the nursing home?

    Very nice of them. I actually spent half of my Thanksgiving giving out food to folks that didnt have anything. A friend of mine down in Texas works for an organization that does that and I voluteered me and my son. I've never quite had a feeling like I did that day and it taught my son some things too. Kudos to those guys.

    Giving up 4 hours of their time during finals week? That is impressive!

    I needed every waking minute to study during finals. Can't imagine how they pulled this off?
