2009 Card-vent Calendar: December 13

December 13, 2009:
1991 Pro Line Portraits #219 Dan Saleaumua

According to a GQ article, "A Samoan boy is 40 times more likely to reach the NFL than a boy growing up in the United States." That's a pretty interesting statistic, but I don't think it fully explains why I am not currently the starting (or even backup) receiver for the Green Bay Packers.

Saleaumua is currently using his profile to fight cancer. I like how these forgotten cards can rekindle interest in older players, and sometimes you find out how good of guys some of them still are. More information can be found on his website.
