Through the Mail Success – John Offerdahl

FullSizeRender (6)This one came back on Monday.  I am embarrassed to post it.  I made the picture small so that you wouldn’t see the obvious error on the card.  For those that don’t know, John Offerdahl was the cog in the Miami Dolphins defense that kept Dan Marino in the games.

He’s a five time Pro Bowler and two time All Pro selection.  The only thing holding him out of the Hall of Fame was his extremely short career of just eight years. An extremely smart guy both book smart and business sense.  He owned a Bagel store venture that later was sold and became Einstein’s Bagels.  Now he runs a restaurant chain called Offerdahl’s Cafe and Grill.  To top it off he graduated with a FullSizeRender (7)Biochemistry degree from Western Michigan.  Two years ago he was inducted into the MAC Hall of Fame.

My embarrassment comes with placing his position as pitcher on the card, when it should be linebacker.  This is why it’s important to please pay attention when creating custom cards.  Something that me, a person who is completely ADD, sometimes seems to do.  Oh well, I hope that John O. got a giggle out of it.
