Favorite fan moment: Taking my eldest son to his first football game for his 6th bday. SD/Indy, 2007. I spent pregame pointing out all the guys he should watch, told him how good Manning was. Manning threw 6 INTs. At one point Bas (my boy) turned and said - Did they change QBs? Cause I thought you said this guy was good.

Favorite player of all time: Curtis Martin

NFL rule(s) I would change if I could: Roughing the QB - I oppose a flag being thrown when you breathe on a QB. Also, celebration penalties are lame.
