2009 Card-vent Calendar: December 20

December 20, 2009:
1993 Upper Deck #472 Mark Kelso

I wonder what it was like to have been in the stands that fateful day. Sitting on your hands for warmth, anticipating the non-stop action of the no-huddle offense, praying the Buffalo temperatures remain just high enough keep your cup of hot chocolate from freezing the next time you set it down.

What was it like to see Mark Kelso emerge from the locker room, sprint down the hallway, and when he reached the mouth of that exit, pick up the ornamental Buffalo Bills helmet tunnel and claim it as his own for that game? How many got to witness this watershed event in American, nay, world history?

And how would it have felt to be a wide receiver that happened to wander into Kelso's zone of coverage? What are you thinking when a guy is coming at you with a full size Weber grill on his head? Do you have flashbacks to the first time you saw Spaceballs?

These things should keep you up at night, kids.
