My friend, Don, years ago, early days, trying to get into Ford Motor Company. He’s calling on his one buyer and he has no business with him. So he said to the guy one day, “How about if we stroll out and have a sandwich.” He said you know, “Don (something like) I don’t want to lead you on we can’t use you. You are too small. We really don’t have any need for your business and I can’t see us using you here at Ford.” He said, “I understand that but maybe the day will come when, God forbid, somebody will disappoint you and let you down. We would like to be in the background. I know you are busy. How about if we take one day, go across the street, take 45 minutes to have a sandwich?” The guy took a deep breath kind of and said, “Okay.” Now if you’ve got 45 minutes with somebody for the first time away from the office, who don’t you talk about? Everybody? Don’t say one thing about yourself. So, they’re having a sandwich, “What do you like to do when you’re not working?” “Well, I spend time with my son, 15 year-old son.” “What do you guys like?” “Well, we like sports.” “Does he have a favorite sport?” “Yep. The Detroit Lions.” “Favorite player?” He says, “Don, it’s interesting that you ask.” He said, “Charlie Sanders. You remember Charlie Sanders #88 the former All-Pro?” He said,” He loves Charlie Sanders.” He said something to the effect, “Most teenage boys have pictures of bikinied women on the wall. I didn’t but some do. He had posters of Charlie Sanders #88.” And they just loved football and he would read about the Lions and read about Charlie Sanders and 45 minutes went just like that and it was gone. “Don thanks for the lunch. I don’t know how we are going to use you. But you are a gracious guy and we will keep you in mind.” So, he leaves; goes down to the sports store. Buys a $32 dollar NFL football which, I was a wide receiver, yes, right, a $32 dollar NFL Football which is not, anybody can send a football to a guy but his great aliveness was sharing the love of football with 15 year-old son whose favorite player was Charlie Sanders. Don didn’t know Charlie but he knew someone who did about three lines down. Called somebody said would you have your friend….How does he know Charlie… he lives down the street from Charlie. Tell Charlie he has a great fan in Dearborn, a fifteen year-old boy. Ask him if I send over an NFL football and the spelling of the boy’s name, would he write a note? Listen, called back a couple of days later, said Charlie is thrilled to do it, near the end of his career. He is glad have one fan left. And so sent the football over, spelling of the boy’s name, Charlie
