Default To Jon Gruden

Mr. Gruden,

As a Broncos fan, I've had my periods of hate and love for you. What I hope to communicate effectively in this message, is my love for your passion of the game.

When you were a Raider's coach, I spat at your heals but never at you. I was in dispute about what you were doing with so little. I couldn't stand that you were crazy balanced enough to make Al seemingly, "OK".

I despised your resolve. It didn't help that a dear friend of mine was a petulant Raiders' fan who carried silver and black in the blinking of his eyes. He really didn't have any choice as he was a Texan and a Raider's fan.

What you couldn't assume and I am ultimately thanking you for, is being a great football inspiration. When you call a game, I recognize your skills. You might be the most real analyst in 20 years. No one calls games like you do do because, you're calling them as a coach. And a hell of a coach you are. I'm very proud to have been an observer of your obsession. You are clearly one of the best.

No matter what you choose to do, I hope it isn't against the Broncos. I would take your passion over most any coach. I think Vince would have been proud to have you near his circle.

J

Yeah. I used to write letters to Jon Voight. Now the courts won't let me.

Hey Hambone, I'm sure that underneath Gruden's rough exterior and scowls, he feels the same way about you.

Share the love man.... Share the love.

Yes, because those threads are legitimate attempts to contact said individuals. Brilliant.

Don't listen to what these guys say. I say go for it. Maybe it's just because I have lived in Portland for so long where man love is just the Norm. But when I see true love like this.

CP hack strikes the OM!

Did Hambone leave any disparaging remarks on Gruden's facebook page?

Jon,

PLEASE watch this video. Replace "Woman" with "Jon Gruden," and you have my feelings about you!

XOXOXOXO
