It made my day when I got a package of birthday cards from a third grade classroom in Rochester.
Brian Krenik's third graders at St. Francis of Assisi Elementary School put together the package and mailed it me at WCCO Radio.
Mr. Krenik wrote: "Many of the students did not hear of you, truly a black mark on their generation. A couple students do know their parents listen to you on Sunday morning, so that made me feel a little better. They did enjoy looking you up on the Star Tribune web site, and think it is cool that you get to write about sports for a living."
Mr. Krenik said his students enjoy writing letters, and I had a chance to read them all and really enjoyed them.

Joseph wrote: "If you fish, what do you fish for?"
Tommy wrote: "Were there cars in 1925?"
Most of the kids wanted to know what my favorite sport was. I always say whatever is in season. When it's football season, I like football. Basketball season, basketball. Baseball season, baseball.
