Can’t remember a local profile on Modell that didn’t mention it. Maybe he was the one always bringing it up (he was quite the raconteur with reporters) but it’s always been out there. Was even a frequent network talking point during camera shots of him in the press box. http://waitingfornextyear.com Andrew SchnitkeyI can’t remember if I did or not, but I certainly meant to preface that comment by pointing out that it could very well be a factor of my age that I just don’t remember it. Thanks for the clarification Harv.
