Hey all,
It's been a while since I posted, but I figured I would say hi and let you all know that Max Starks is expected to be here in Manas AB, Kyrgystan tomorrow. He is coming here on a USO tour and Bryce Fischer and Patrick Kearney will be atennding as well. I was thinking of telling Fischer I thought he didn't play for the Seahwaks anymore since I didn't hear his name called in the Super Bowl at all. HAHA!! Anyways, I will try to get a picture with Max and post it if possible.

I saw him at the Pro Bowl. At first he didn't seem so big because he was standing next to his mother. Then the closer I got the taller his 'mama' got.

The baseball mits at the end of his arms are his hands.

I was just working out in the gym, when all three fo those dudes walked in. I said hi to Kearney and Fischer, but I kinda shied away from Max at first, b/c he is so damn huge. I was wearing my Super Bowl Champs shirt, and I hear Max say to Kearney, " See man I told you they were everywhere!" I just kinda smiled and kept up with my squat workout. They left and then came back in workout clothes. Max was working out for a bit, and I told Kearney that I signed hi on Madden HAHA. Then , I thought this was way cool by the way, Max came up to me from the other side of the gym, and t shook my hand (huge hands, and I'm not a small guy at all) and gave me a Steelers lapel pin and said thanks, he said, " It's all about the 'Burgh baby." I went back to running my sprints (tryin not to be so chubby lol) and I was shaking, the only other two Steelers I have ever met were The Bus and Peezy, and thats when I worked at ****s while in college.

It's real cool they came over this way, seeing Starks kind of makes me feel at home, I know its mushy, but the little things help over here. I'll make sure I get a pic with him tonite, my mom sent a huge box, which very convienenly came yesterday, and it has all the home town papers in it. And a commemerative football, which I want to get the O-line to sign. I'll make sure to post soem pics. Miss talking football with you guys!
