The power of people finding

September 28th, 2011 by Jack Styczynski

Here’s the promised post about when people finding and football intersect.  It’s nothing without pictures! 

Recently, a friend who runs the Phoenix of New Orleans e-mailed me to see if I could find updated contact information for some people who were candidates to have their Hurricane Katrina damaged homes rebuilt by the organization.  Using techniques I demonstrated in class Tuesday, I found them, and ultimately a family was chosen.  Obviously, I felt great about it, but what I didn’t know at the time is that the project was being funded by Jahri Evans, Lance Moore, Malcolm Jenkins and Roman Harper of my beloved New Orleans Saints.  As such, I was invited out to dinner with them after Sunday’s conquest of the Houston Texans. WHO DAT!

    Jack, who dat man? Dat man Jack. From the pictures, I had to look twice to determine who was the wide receiver and who was the DB. You look like you could pad up any time…

    Thanks to all for the kind words. Yeah, Tim, I could pad up as a kicker in the Garo Yepremian mold.

    Anyway, here’s more about my latest NOLA volunteer effort…
