No great stories, this is the third straight year I've played in it. Haven't seen Favre at all. Two years ago I watched an NBA Finals game in a suite with about 15 NFL players who were extremely into the game.
A good friend of mine lives across the street from Driver here in the Dallas area and has entered a couple of teams the last few years. The first year we played with Marion Barber, this year we played with Akin Ayodele and Linda Cohn was in front of us. Two years ago one of the celebs was Aaron Rodgers, for some reason after he was Super Bowl MVP, he hasn't been there the last two years!
I will say this, the first year I played it was held down in Houston. The first time I saw Driver he was shuttling people from the airport to the hotel in a big white van. The second time I saw him he was carrying cases of beverage up to the hospitality suite. In short, he was doing a lot of the heavy lifting that comes along with an event like this. He wasn't just standing around letting others take care of it. He was extremely hands on and that's great to see from a star athlete in this day and age.
