My little sister worked at Dish Network a few years ago. I got a random call back then basically saying, hey a football player is here if you've ever heard of him. Barry Sanders. I'm like... yeah I've heard of him (Understatement of the century).
tangent: he was my FAVORITE player when I was growing up. I realize it should have been Montana or Rice, but I was a sucker for running backs.
Back to the story: So what about him? She goes on to say he's there checking out the place blah blah, and then tells me he's signing autographs and she asks me if I want an autograph on a football? Me: Um, yes please, that would probably be the coolest thing ever in my life.
So I tell everyone I know I'm getting Barry Sanders autograph on a football. I'm super excited. I hadn't heard from her so I called her a couple days later. "Oh yeah, I wasn't able to get it, too many people were there." FML.
I haven't bought Madden in a loooong time. I'm gonna get this one. That cover will be a constant reminder: Your sister let you down.
