Just when you thought Randy Moss had it all, it keeps getting better. The US Postal Service is set to release a commemorative envelope honoring the New England Patriots and former Marshall University WR later this week.
"Moss is a well-respected sports figure in the West Virginia area," said David Walton, spokesman for the post office's Appalachian District. "We just wanted to pay tribute to him and recognize him for his achievements."Moss’ envelope makes him West Virginia’s third most-famous athlete, following Jerry West and Mary Lou Retton, who both had envelopes in their honor in the 1990s. So is Moss really worthy of this honor? Or is it just West Virginia’s turn to release a commemorative envelope and Rich Rodriguez and John Beilein were unavailable? Those in the Postal Service are strong believers in Moss’ worth.
"Randy Moss is to football what Tiger Woods is to golf," said District Manager Karen Schenck, who will make a presentation to Moss. "The Postal Service wanted to honor Mr. Moss, so we designed a commemorative envelope as a fitting tribute to his many talents."Ah yes, Randy Moss and Tiger Woods - - comparable on so many levels. Only 5,000 envelopes at $6 will be produced, so if you’re interested, Friday can’t come soon enough1
