The Wrights Get Air Conditioning

Jul 19, 2011

A quick update from Shannon Jordan on Gordon and Dora Wright in Florida:
Thank you to Joe Muley, Keith Ledford and Greg Deardorff at Carrier Enterprises for donating the HVAC unit. Thank you to George at Frank Gay Plumbing for installing and thank you to Kevin Worthy on our Gridiron Greats team for getting us in contact with Carrier. We were able to get this new unit for Gordon and Dora in less than a week after waiting for a full year! Attached is a video from Dora Wright getting her unit installed right now.

God Bless you all!

Dora used her cell phone to show their old air conditioner being removed and the new one being installed by the good folks at Frank Gay Plumbing from Orlando. We wish it was this easy to change things out at the NFL and the NFLPA!

    To Mike Freeman of,

    Please don’t go giving De Smith or Roger Goodell credit for the Wright family receiving a new air conditioner. They both had nothing to do with this act of kindness.

    Also, De Smith had nothing to do with the one billion dollar proposal/ deal for retired players. It is outrageous for Smith’s name to even get mentioned. In fact, he has done just the opposite. Please kindly refrain from telling fairy tales about Gene Upshaw’s replacement because once you ring a bell you can’t unring it.

    I was denied that Long-Term Care policy due to lack of recall! After 4 major concussions who could recall anything? This was a ploy from the owners from the start. The question again is why? We were once the hunters and are now the hunted – we seem to be their new prey!

    Bring back the economic boycott in a flash mob fashion and they will stop their sick game of Hunt the Old Gladiators.

    You may laugh but did you get your long-term disability?

    Good Morning Everyone:

    Gordon was actually able to sleep three hours straight last night due to the fact that our new HVAC system was completed by 8:30 p.m.!

    I was elated because I was also finally able to sleep three hours straight instead of in one-hour increments due to the unbearable heat.

    Thank You with all our heart – we appreciate you all.
