Thankinvol has shared some stories with us when he was a manager, and even posted a few pictures here in some threads with Eric Berry working on helmets, etc.
This was a quote from Berry yesterday at SportsFest:
"We had a cool bond. It wasn't just football player and trainer or football player and manager. They really genuinely cared for us, and that’s one thing that a lot of people don't understand about Tennessee. It's more than about football.
I used to go in there and kick it with those guys. We used to eat pizza and scrub and clean helmets. I always wanted to put the orange "T" on my helmet so I could say that I actually put that "T" on my helmet – so that was a big honor for me to do that."
Your team. All the time.
Awesome quote Kevin, thank you so much for sharing this with us/me! The one time I ever asked him to sign anything-after what we knew was gonna be his last game- he signed a poster for me and put "M4L" or Manager for life on it with a personal message. I'll save that forever. Really an awesome guy
"Give him six" "We don't give a damn about the whole state of Alabama" "Grit N Grind"
The coolest thing about that is that it shows that he wasn't "just being nice" to you guys. He really appreciated what you guys did for him and the team.
He wasn't just trying to make you feel good, he was sincere. Man, that's awesome. Great job, thankinvol, you really are a VMFL..
Some cause happiness wherever they go; others whenever they go.
Thank you very much, I appreciate that!
