    Last night we held my retirement ceremony from the Coast Guard at the VFW in Arlington, VA. One of my buddies played college football at Oregon State and retired last year - he's a big Patriots fan as well. So we got in touch w/ the OSU AD's office and they flew an OSU flag over the stadium and sent it to us. The Patriots flew an American flag over Gillette and sent it w/ a picture and letter congratulating him on his retirement. We put both flags in his shadow box. So, not to be outdone, he got in touch w/ UF's AD's office (he said he had to 'pester' them for a while) - he was able to get an authentic UF helmet, worn in a game (whoever #44 was - there's a small sticker inside the helmet w/ the #44) and it's signed by Dan Mullen, "To Chris, Thank you for your service. Go Gators. Dan Mullen":

          You look too young to be retiring but congratulations. Great gift as well.

                  Congrats on making it official. Knowing some your your aspirations the idea came to me that you could put that signed helmet up for sale and use the proceeds from that sale to put a down payment on one of those way overpriced houses you are looking at in the Tampa area :lmao2:. Just kidding. Well deserved retirement gift.

                    Damn with all those ribbons and medals you look like an admiral. Congrats on the retirement so now go dust off those fishing poles and get busy. You were talking about selling your cabin, you may want to rethink that.

                          He looks good in the helmet. I bet he can play some “D” for us. Strong safety maybe!

                                                Our community sprung up when the Gatorsports message board was shut down in the summer of 2014. We pride ourselves on offering Gator-biased, yet critical discussion among people of all different backgrounds. We are working every day to make sure our community is the best Gator message board you will find.
