    Just found this article on Page 2.

    I'm sure Elam will get crucified on here but I found the Q&A interesting.
     
  2. I think an old NFL commercial put it best:

    "Kickers will speak when spoken to!"

    The champ is still Al Del Greco, who allegedly named his son Derrick ... after the Houston Oilers' logo.

    After reading that interview, it looks interesting enough that I might flip through it. My respect for Elam, though, went from 0 (as in I never really gave him a thought outside fantasy football) to 60 in a hurry.

    Got a pretty good idea his son is named Al Del Greco... his nickname is Trey and Al's a "junior" so....

    Derrick is Trey's younger brother by four years. They call him Bubba.

    Lou Piniella's son is named Derrick, too. I think because Lou needed a crane to hitch up his pants.

    Oh, and that Q&A read like a piece of fanboi puffery.
