Don't know if Brady hears about any of these E-Mails but on the chance he does I would like to thank him for doing an outstanding job this year. It has been a difficult year as I'm fighting kidney cancer and I would just like to thank coach Hoke for bringing some joy into my life this year. Let's go Blue!

May I enter? JUST KIDDING!!!! Don't go nuclear. Hope someone wins that normally couldn't have the chance to go. If a "well-healed" alum wins, then hope they spend a bunch to support the New Orleans economy.

Normally I'd love to go but New Orleans is the Murder Capital of the United States.
