Here we go again, 70 men from all walks of life and all age ranges, in Dallas Texas for the annual Fire-fighters Redskins football trip. This was the rivalry trip, the Dallas Cowboys Vs. Washington Redskins. This event started back in 1981 by Christopher Thompson, ‘Smoke’, my neighbor from across the street and all around good guy, and his brothers, Clayton, ‘Big Buck’, Kendal and Victor, ‘Vick’.
Since I moved into the neighborhood in 1997, Chris had been telling me, ‘man you need to go’, ‘it’s the bomb’. So 12 years later, yes I was late, I decided to go to the 2009 trip to Atlanta. I was sick as a dog but I had a great time and I have been going ever since. I have met a lot of good people and made a bunch of new friends on that trip and it gets better every year.
