I Met Dick Butkus in Minneapolis!

My husband can now die a happy man. He has met his lifelong football hero, Dick Butkus, who was signing autographs at a sports memorabilia show in the Twin Cities.

Mr. Butkus was very friendly and easygoing, and really seemed to be having fun looking at the stuff people had brought him to sign. I have a video of him talking about how he taped up his forearms to prepare for a game, which he was prompted to discuss by the poster we brought him. He also really grinned at my husband's well-worn #51 jersey, and he was very friendly with all the kids in the line. At the show, the stars weren't supposed to "pose" for photos, but Dick did anyway.

 He made a great impression on us, and we thanked him sincerely for the football memories.

I posted an album on Facebook, and I will try to make sure it's available for anyone to see. Bear with me on the technical aspects!
