Went to the Iggles game last week. 20 minutes before kickoff, there was Franco Harris, wandering solo around the Great Hall. Very cool about shaking hands and posing for a photo. Awesome dude.

Never got a chance to meet Franco, met Rocky once and got an autographed football.
Franco always look and acted like a very nice and considerate person. Something that a lot of todays players could take a lesson from.
I also think he is a very underrated player, at least outside of Pittsburgh he is.

From what I hear, Franco Harris doesn't often turn down a handshake, photo, and occasional autograph. He's a real down to earth guy, which I think is cool.

And yes, he is very underrated outside of Pittsburgh.

Wow that was difficult. I must be computer illiterate.

Anyway, as you can see, Franco looks great--probably looks younger than me although I was 9 when he was winning his first ring.

I also took a pic of me and the kids by his statue in the airport--hope to combine the two into a nice combo frame

That is why the thought of him in a Seacows uniform makes me ill.:puke:
