October 20, 2008
In this business, we in the media often rely on players and coaches to call us back. Sometimes they do, sometimes they don't, but rarely do we get a phone call like the one I got last week from Indianapolis Pro Bowler Dallas Clark, who I tried to reach in the wake of the Colts' first vintage offensive game of the season.
"Peter, this is Dallas Clark of the Colts. I just wanted to call and let you know that I did get the message to call you after the game, and I left the locker room, and got with my family and friends, and went out to eat, and I totally forgot to call you. I apologize. I totally forgot and I'm really sorry. I just wanted to let you know I should have called you. It wasn't anybody's fault but mine, and I'm sorry. I hope you're having a good day, and if you need me, reach out to me again. I will talk to you soon. Bye bye.''
