Pride from a distance

My family grew up in the projects in Clairton, PA. My family did remarkably well considering their rather humble beginnings. Several of my aunts and uncles put themselves through school. This picture is of my Uncle Ronnie. He is the first born of my Gram's kids. He played football for Clairton HS, but he also went on to play pro ball up in Canada for the Saskatchawan Roughriders. He then did some sportscasting and some coaching. I don't know him well at all since he lived in Canada for years. That does not change the pride I feel when I see things like this. It amazes me that someone from my family was this successful. I think that is cool as hell. :)
