And Another Thing


Another Fort Wayne sighting in Canton

Two years ago it was a Fort Wayne kind of night in Canton, Ohio.

That was the night city favorite son Rod Woodson was inducted, and everyone in America heard a little (or maybe more than they wanted to) about the Summit City.

Well, tonight, they're gonna hear a little more. Deion Sanders goes into the Hall in Canton. And the man introducing him is another favorite son of the city: Eugene Parker, Sanders' agent.

Who was described on ESPN yesterday as being a soft-spoken "salt of the earth" guy "from Fort Wayne, Indiana."

Well, yes. We do salt of the earth pretty well here. It tends to get us places, after all.
