It's All About the People

There were many memorable scenes surrounding the Super Bowl in Houston that will inform our thinking as we make the dream proposed to the NFL in 2014 come true. One such scene was witnessing Marilyn Carlson Nelson literally running to catch up with Tom Brady immediately following his Monday morning Super Bowl LI Most Valuable Player press conference. To be clear, it wasn’t to snag an autograph. Instead it was to outfit him with official Bold North cap and mittens on the off chance that he and his Patriot teammates will be in Minnesota next year. Another memory was the acknowledgement that the NFL gave, prior to the game, to some of the many NFL alumni who attended historically black colleges and universities.
