Finally some positive football news. (Note: We’re still upset about the Patriots loss and not talking to Tom Brady). Check out the article below about how gear for Sunday’s “Big Game That Shall Not Be Named”  is actually made by those with developmental disabilities.

Myron’s adopted son, Danny, has autism and is a resident of the school that beneifts from procedes. I use to provide respite for Danny so Myron and his wife Hazel could go out/away. That was a LONG time ago, but Myron was an awesome person as was his wife.
