Forgotten Player of the Moment – VANN MCELROY

Vann McElroy (by Ed Agner) I have a love/hate thing for pro football.

Forgotten Player of the Moment – TODD CHRISTENSEN

Forgotten Player of the Moment – JAY SCHROEDER

JAY SCHROEDER (by ED AGNER) Dean gets drunk upon occasion (No. Really.) and emails the VP.com world-wide headquarters and swears at us. Well, actually, he swears at Phil, but who doesn’t? Anyway, Dean emails and requests oddball stuff. (For the record: No, Dean, Bill WILL NOT arrive at your door dressed in leather. Phil WILL go rollerblading with you dressed […]
