i know this doesn't have  anything to do with lottery, but to all of you who follow football. possibly the best defensive player in the nfl. reggie white passed away today. my prayers and deepest sympathy goes out to the white family.

    Me too. It was a shock (so young at 43) to hear it.  And if you're a Packer fan, this means something to you. He wasn't only a great player, he was a good man. God bless him.

      i was one of the first people to ever see reggie white play professional football,i live in memphis and he came to play with the memphis showboats in the USFL in 1985.i was just about 10 or 11 then and i got a life size poster that you measure your growth with that has reggie white on it that they sold at one of the games.this really is sad because he was one of my first heroes in football when me and my dad would go watch him play.everytime he had a sack i think he donated a certain amount of money to charity.a real good guy that will be missed........

        Great man, great preacher, great player. He did everything well. I'm thankful for such great example of people in life. He's only human but he was a greater man than I.

          He touched many lives.........many


           


          By the way, Badger...my husband is the greatest Packer fan.  He is from Sheboygan, and one of his greatest thrills was last year he went to the "frozen tundra" with my son to watch them play.

            Sandy K,

            When he gets enshrined in Canton next year (I believe that's his first eligible year) it will be pretty emotional. It's too bad that he didn't live long enough to participate in it. Also, I think the Packers were waiting to retire #92 along with #4 when Brett retires. That will be another emotional dvent. ANd Sheboygan is a nice place. Been there many times. Not big, but really "cozy".

              Wow, it was a surprise when I heard it on the radio. I remember when he was on the Green Bay Packers... feels like just yesterday. Wasn't he part of the Super Bowl wins in Green Bay, before the Denver Broncos back-to-back SB wins?
