    Township got a reaction from pawrestler in Newly Posted, Unedited Film of '62 NCAA Finals   
    Great stuff! Really appreciate you posting this. Kids these days really take for granted the "age of technology". Thee days, there are cameras everywhere and their entire lives are documented through pics and video.Thanks to mom and dad...they will have no problem replaying their lives no matter how old and gray they become. They will never give it a second thought how fortunate they really are.
     
    I had the chance to do something really special for my step father this past Christmas and I would give 10 thousand dollars to replay that day...the joy and appreciation that he showed was just incredible. Don't underestimate what I just said here because my step dad is "oldschool" and rarely ever showed emotion in the 40 years that I've known him. Anyway, he was a very good football player in high school and at the time he was considered one the best in our area. He graduated in 1951...a time when there just wasn't a whole lot of film out there. Anyway,one day I stumbled across a man (on a local message board) who had old films of area games and converted many of them to dvd. I sent him a pm asking if by chance he had any games from that team that my step father played on. He wrote me back asking me for my address and that if he could find one that he would mail me a copy. I didn't hear anything from him for over 6 months. About two weeks from Christmas I got a package in the mail and to my surprise was an entire game that my step father played in.
     
    I was shocked! Shocked that a complete stranger did that for me. Ya know.. there was no return address, no name...nothing. Just a note saying he hoped my step father enjoyed the vid and that he was glad he could help. After weeks of searching for the forum that I first came across the man, I was finally able to find to find an old post and send the guy a message to thank him. Sadly, he never returned my message. I honestly feel this guy planned to send it around Christmas time and his timing could not have been better. The look on my step fathers face when I put that dvd in was priceless. My Mom and I never said a word. Told him to come in to the living room to watch this. Slipped the dvd in and hit play. The first time in my life I had ever seen a tear roll down that mans cheek. All of this because some stranger cared enough to go out of his way to bring joy to someone he didn't even know.
