Can’t Take My Eyes Off These Blogs #10-Ed McCaffrey Edition

Another Saturday, where does the time go? Today, we went to see Eddie McCaffrey, former receiver for the Denver Broncos. A new sporting goods store was opening up, and apparently he’s the main attraction. I wouldn’t drive an hour to meet most NFL players, but steady Eddie was always a good role model and a great team player. Plus, my husband was a big fan. The only other famous person I’ve ever met at a meet and greet was Slash at an optometry convention of all places. Can’t imagine what he thought of the crowd!

Eyes on the Dollar was mentioned in quite a few places this week. Thanks so much for sharing. It’s so fun to see those pingbacks pop up. Please let me know if I missed anyone.
