Friday success...

It was a long, hard process but one of my favorite successes ever arrived in the mailbox today. Florida head coaches Urban Meyer and Billy Donovan each signed a "We beat the Buckeyes" picture I designed last spring, detailing the school's national championship wins over Ohio State in both football and basketball last season.

Also signing were a pair of college football players, including Navy's Adam Ballard. The Midshipmen running back rumbled for over 600 yards and five touchdowns this season while leading the squad to an 8-4 record. That request was sent via the Navy athletic department and took just 15 days.

New Hampshire quarterback Ricky Santos also signed a pair of index cards. That request, sent care of the UNH athletic department back in the summer, took 131 days. Santos threw for nearly 3000 yards and 24 touchdowns for the Wildcats, completing more than 73% of his passes on the campaign.

And finally, Navy head coach Paul Johnson, who just today announced his intentions to take the Georgia Tech job, signed an 8x10 photo. That request was sent via email and took just under a month.
