      Often times we find ourselves lost in our own little worlds, not considering who we are and what we really contribute to others; So is nice to step back and view things in a different point of view -to see the big picture. I hope this story might inspire you to do just that. There once was a man that grew up with a dream to some day be a member of the NFL.  He studied hard, and trained even harder year after year to become the very best he could be; so that some day (Lord knows when) he will finally get the chance -the chance he's been dreaming of all his life.  Until, that day finally came.  He was ready.  Armed with the support of his family, he took his place as the Tampa Bay Buccaneers chose him.  His big heart full of joy and relief and hope for the future; still he made certain his emotions would not get the best of him.  He stood proud and strong and collected.  Strong for his family, new team mates, and his new organization that he has the privilege to call his own.  This man lived his dream with us for three years.  Later, he was traded to the Bears where he contributed to them for another year before his enlarged heart took his toll on him and took his life at the tender age of 26.That's right, this story is not fiction.  This story was based on our Gaines Adams.  With the time he had, he inspired us fans, and contributed to our team.  The dream became reality when the TBBcs called his name. The draft is truly a place where dreams come true, and I am proud to support an organization that can bring that to anyone.  And to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Some day, the favor will be returned, until then...  Let's live each day as if it was our last.  Dream big.  Work hard for our future.Truly,Mrs.OUTOFYOURSKULL (OUTOFYOURSKULL's wife)
