From small town Ohio to the Super Bowl!
When I was about 11 years old a new family moved into the very modest two bedroom home alongside our backyard in Bowling Green, Ohio. Two boys, Johnny and Jimmy came over to play that summer. We would all go to the City Park and the pool. Johnny, age 7, was always well behaved and rather more soft spoken than Jimmy, age 6, who was a bit brasher for a kid five years younger than the rest of us. Jimmy always wanted to do what the big kids were doing and that included going on the high dive at the pool.
They were both nice kids and it's a shame their family moved on after a year when their father took a coaching job in Iowa.
Obviously both boys have done quite well for themselves and I wish them both luck in Sunday's game!
