    That somehow always forgets to bring tickets, tents, and atleast 1 food item, but never forgets the cold beer.

    I wanted to share this story with you guys. I have always been a loyal fan, student, and alum of Troy (State) University, since I transferred to Troy in 2000. Being part of the SOTS gave me opportunities I would never have in other programs across the country. One of the most unique things about being at Troy, is there is a sense of the Troy "family" everywhere on campus. I loved having conversations with all the football players, (Rayshaw Reed, Demarcus Ware, Osi Umenyoira, Delouis Moore, Andrew Amerson, Heyward Skipper, etc etc etc.) These guys really appreciated the true fans at Troy and would give tickets to us students who wanted to go to away games, even though we kind of knew the big boy teams would rip us in half. Fast foward to the year Demarcus was drafted, I sent him a fan letter, and I was very happy to recieve an autographed picture in the mail!! So yes I was excited he remembered a person like me, a nobody really.

    Yesterday, my wife and I decided we were going to visit the Alamo Dome, to see the Cowboys practice, and to maybe see if I could get a glimse of Demarcus. I brought with me a huge Troy State University flag, that has tons of autographs from the players on the team from 2000-2003. This includes Demarcus, Osi, Larry B. of all people. And of course our logo on it was the old Trojan logo. We sat in the corner of an end zone away from the action. I told my wife, hey lets go to the other side of the dome, because we spotted Demarcus, and maybe I could catch a simple hello. So we got lucky, we went to the other side as practice was ending, and Demarcus sat down for a television interview with channel 4 news. One of the camera guys spotted me, as one of the Dallas coaches, as I hung the huge Troy flag over the railing. My wife in the mean time, took lots of pictures while he sat for the interview. When he was done he came over, I was up high, hardly acknowledged me, asked me if had already been signed, I said yes, and he quickly moved on. Now, I was sad you know? I didnt expect him to remember me, but jeeze, we were both students at the same time, I was kinda hoping for, hey man!! come on down! you graduated from Troy to? I talked to the guy alot in college, I was his "homie" like everyone else. But it was kind of a let down. I plan to still keep his autographed picture, but I want to sell the flag with the two superstars names on them on Ebay, I am hoping to make some money. I felt real dissappointed, I realize the guy is a superstar now, but I was the only Troy grad/fan there, he saw the flag. Do I have a right to feel this way? Seems like once these guys go PRO, we are nobodies. The only NFL dude that even acknowledges his own fans from Troy is Sherrod Martin!!! Anyway, please dont be negative with any responses...but I wanted to share this with you Trojan fans. I will post pictures later if you want. Take care
    would you like some french cries with your waaahburger? get over it dude you've gotta be damn near 30 grow up.

    I played against Demarcus in High school and with him in college. He was in my wedding and I talked to him on a daily basis. My wife was his tutor and prob better freinds with him in the end than i was. He came to get my wife and 2 other friends out of class to take a ride in is 2 hr old 745i just after he signed his first contract. We were eating dinner with him and Tanequa at Olive Garden in Mont a couple weeks before the draft. I say all of that to say this. I told my wife when he signed to not be angry if he doesnt call every week bc he will have so much on his plate. Every once in a while he will have to change his number for safety and other reasons.He made a lot of new "friends"when he got famous.....We could have more autographed stuff than u can shake a stick at but we dont want to be one of those ppl. we let him be...makes it a lot better when he call us and were not calling him..we hear from him a couple times a year and that is fine with us. Have you ever come up to someone you met at another stage in your life being so busy with your current life and not rember them right away??? I have. If it dont bother me it shouldnt bother you... Take a deep breath...exhale.....and....get over it!!Not a better man in football hands down!!

    Yeahiwin, your right on the age! What about you? Your response seems to that of a fourteen year old that doesn't know how to think before you speak!

    Anyway for the rest of you guys, would you like me to post pictures up?

    Take a couple of deep breaths, let some time pass and be a Troy and Demarkus fan. The guy was tired and probably busy and had other priorities. He can't plewase everyone all the time.

    Keep your flag and enjoy it - especially the experiences you went through to create it.
