Mr. Riley--
I will try not to waste your time but I thought I could at least try
to contact you. I am from Leavenworth, Kansas and I have been watching
Wayne Simien play ball since he was in high school. It would be an
incredible experience if you could please let him get some PT in the
upcoming game against the Pistons; I have tickets and I am going not
only as a Miami Heat fan but to support my favorite NBA player,
Wayne. Thank you for your time.
Merry Christmas and God Bless,

Dear Coach:
I am in the Air Force and recently came upon a phrase that I believe is worth
patenting, but I don't know how to go about it.  Any suggestions from your
experience with 'threepeat?'  Thanks!              Sincerely,

I am sure we can all agree that weekend sport analyst exist; that can tell
coach's what they should have done correctly. But this is not the case here.
I have never seen any one who cries as a coach, than yourself. You have more
excuses for your players inability and drive to be a champion. If you really
reviewed film against the Chicago Bulls you would truly see the difference
between physical play and intentionally initiating physical play, due to
inability's to match up with an opponent skill wise. Michael Jordan is the
greatest player of all time. And your team is not the first to try and
muscle, physically wear down or intentionally cause harm. So suck up the
verbal mush you are spiting out and find a way to win we ability.

Mr. Riley, I must say that I thoroughly enjoyed The Winner Within. As a
manager of a group of sales professionals, your insights and methods
have been most helpful to me and our team.
While I must admit that I'm not a big fan of the Heat (I live in Toronto
therefore root for the Raptors), I remain a big fan of yours.
Keep up the great work and hoping to see another book from you in the
near future.
A fan in TO.

Pat Riley, I am a Central Michigan University student, I live in
Ft.Lauderdale, FL.  I saw a comment you said in the papers, when I was over the
internet.  You said you didn't come down here to coach in Broward, you came to
coach in Miami.  Now I have been up here in Michigan, and probaly don't know
the whole story, but it kind of hurts to hear you say that, because all of
South Florida loves the Heat.  Its like when I came home for Christmas break,
I always here you say, the people down in Miami should be proud.  Its people
outside of Miami, like in Ft.Lauderdale that is very proud too.  I probably
don't understand what you meant by what you said, that is why I would like
you to e-mail me back.  Now I know you are a busy man, and probably doesn't
have the time, but I would appreciate it so much if you can. I undestand what
you meant when you said the business things should be ran in Miami. It just
makes everything organize.  I know it is playoff time, so you probably isn't
going to have the time to e-mail me back.  So I will give you my home address,
because my e-mail is at school in Michigan.  My home address is
751 N.W. 13TH Terrace, Ft.Lauderdale, FL 33311.  I will be in school until
May 1, 1997.  I am a big fan of yours Pat Riley, and I love what you are doing
with the Miami Heat.  Good Luck in the Playoffs.  Go Heat.

There used to be lots more of these, but I deleted them without thinking about it!
