On the day Vince Wilfork retired I just have a short remembrance.
To me, what Vince Wilfork will be remembered most for is that it took more than one guy to stop him from going forward. He was a team leader with a strong personality. He should be in the Patriots Hall of Fame ASAP. When Bass Pro first opened, Vince was there siting on top of the big tank fishing. Iâll never forget it.
As I type this, I am looking at an autograph of his that I had framed. I am not a big autograph guy, but my parents who are in their 80s saw Vince and his wife Bianca one morning at the Cracker Barrel in Wrentham, MA. My mother started talking to Bianca about the Wilforks’ cute small children. My parents said that they were both very friendly. They told Vince that I had been a season ticket holder for decades and asked him if he would sign an autograph for me. He signed it on a paper beverage coaster which I framed.
What will you remember most about Vince Wilfork on and off the field?
