When I spoke to Reggie Wayne last January, neither of us could have imagined that 10 months later he'd be leading the NFL in receiving yards (while still in a Colts' uniform).
Wayne appeared at the Castleton FedEx Office Tuesday as part of the FedEx Blitz for Tickets promotion. Lucky fans got to meet Wayne and register for the chance to win free Colts tickets.
Wayne spent an hour interacting with fans, taking photos and signing anything and everything fans brought through the doors. While he had a stack of glossies and posters to sign, he graciously signed programs, jerseys, shirts and even a stuffed bear.
Wayne was kind enough to answer some questions about just how surprising his renaissance has been.
Great job Nate. What a classy guy he is. It makes you proud as a fan that you're not following thugs, pompous idiots, or selfish players. Nate, you need to put more articles out!
@smonroe Ha. Thanks.
You know I write four articles a day at bleacherreport.com/afcsouthblog right?
I hope you enjoyed and relished the fact that you just interviewed one of the hardest working, most skilled, and most respectable athletes ever. He is truly one of a kind.
That was awesome!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Great non cliche questions and great non-athlete speak answers by Reggie.
(And not only he is the rising up the esteem charts of Colts fans, I wonder how far this season is going to go to his Hall of Fame chances down the road.)
@DougEngland That was the next question on my list. I needed like two more minutes, but people were waiting for signatures.
@Nate Dunlevy Well, that is one question that you probably would have gotten the athlete-speak answer of "I don't think about that kind of stuff, I'm just going out and doing my job".
But you know deep down, he is relishing having all this success without Peyton. And good for him!
@DougEngland And that was the other question I had. If he relished the success he and Peyton were having without each other.
You want to know what I want to know!
