Got more...the most recent.

He's not really famous but...2 or 3 years ago...Carlisle,Pa.,charity hoops game,went to see Jerome Bettis(no-show),met Hank Poteat.Asked him about helping the secondary and definitely returning kicks,he was timid and scared,called his "Boys" over for back-up,didn't like him from that second.

Also met Richard Huntley at that game,he hit on my G/F hard,I bucked up.He was such an idiot,of course nothing happened because it created a ruckus and was broken-up by his peeps...bad publicity,haha.

Ran into Mike Ditka in the San Diego airport on my way to boot camp.

I started to say something to him and he replied:

"No time ta talk kid."

Screw you.

Wow, those are some great ones! ;-D

I guess my own favorite random encounter was at a Counting Crows concert a while back. Even though there was a torrential downpour (one of those big summer thunderstorms) at the time, Adam Duritz stood in the middle of the crowd (next to me :-) ) and watched his warmup band's entire set.

Just nice to see someone who doesn't have an "I'm a big star so no way am I going to get wet watching the people playing with me, and I'm definitely not getting near the folks who bought tickets to see me" attitude... ;-D

Here's another:

My cousin was the kicker at Ohio State (Tim Williams) in the early-mid nineties. He was actually a good college kicker. Was all Big Ten in '93. I used to go to a lot of their games and hang out with some of the players after the game w/ him. I remember seeing Dan Wilkinson, Steve Tovar, Joey Galloway, Robert Smith etc.

One thing that I remember, was that Joey Galloway stands on his tip-toes and walks on them all of the time. His heels literally never touch the ground. Apparently it's how he has stood and walked ever since he was a kid. As a result, his calf muscles are very defined and huge. I'd say thats probably had something to do w/ his amazing speed. Of course I tried walking like that and my calfs killed after like 15 minutes.
