Players you have met: Cool or uncool?

From the sounds of it many floks around here have met a few Skins from past and present. I know I have met a bunch and for the most part they were all cool and one not.

Ones I met that were very cool or kind:
Sonny J. - signed a card for me
Billy Kilmer - signed a card for me
Chip Lomiller - signed a card for me
Roy Jefferson - signed a photo for me
Gus Ferotte - signed a card for me
Charles Mann
Sam Huff
Brian Mitchell
Joe Jacoby [Jake is a BIG man]

Uncool:
D. Greene - signed a card for me
I was the last guy in line and he got up and walked away because his time was done with me standing there. I had to ask him 20 times to please sign a card and say hello to my Son. He finally did but made me feel like crap.

My dream is to go to Texas and meet "THE MAN" "Sling'N" Sammy Baugh himself.

Who have you guys met?

peace

I met Gary Clark on the club level the first year the stadium opened. I hung out with him for a while, and the whole time he let me wear the 91 super bowl ring. I was in highschool at the time, and it was an awesome experience. Itd be nice to have one of those rings.

I met the entire team last year after the Miami game. Chad Morton was the coolest. B.Smith was a jerk, as was Matt Bowen. Lavar was nice, and freaking jacked.

I met Sonny Jergenson to, he didnt seem to want to talk to anybody. Coles said he couldnt sign my program because he had to get on the bus, so I just followed him onto the bus, and problem solved.

Champ wouldnt sign anything atfirst either, I had to go up and bug him. I think he only did it because his girlfriend was with him, but i didnt care.

I haven't met any 'Skins unfortunately.

Being near Albany I do sneak into the Giants camp during the summer, to catch some of their practices. I must say that most everyone I've ever gotten an autograph from has been really cool, even when I'm wearing a 'Skins shirt or hat, in fact it usually gets a rise outta some of them. They're like, what are you doing here with that on! I'll usually just say scouting the enemy. LOL

My god, some of you guys sound like fanatical 12 year old girls at a pop concert! Stalking the players isn't allowed.

I haven't really "met" any of the players, but I saw Fred Smoot (my idol) up close, but chickened out when it came to asking him to sign my tit. Instead I let a little kid that was stuck behind me get up front.

Last season in Dallas I got in the stadium too late to get an autograph, but Samuels did stop and have a short conversation with me. VERY COOL!

Not that anyone cares anymore, but coach Spurrier was very cool too.

I like Suppier too.
I still think Dan Snyder ruined what could have been a good NFL Coach. We'll never know now I guess.

peace

Well, I don't think Spurrier is "ruined" I just think he needed some NFL experience with him and to cut the slacking during practice/etc. He made plenty of mistakes, but when his system would click (which we saw glances of) the offense ran extremely smoothly.

Barber, and Donnel Bennet are family friends, both are very cool and i wish both were still on the team. Samuels is working on a business project with my mother and he and his brother are both good guys. Art Monk's son played in my local youth football program. He was nice, I hope his son becomes good enough to some day join the skins. LaVar is a good guy He's done some PR work for charities and is also a family friend. For the most part they are all regular people, thats why they get annoyed when people attack them for autographs at inappropriate times, but i guess it is part of the job.

Joe Jacoby - won a signed team football at his Jeep dealership's grand opening back in '94
Ray Brown, Sonny Jurgenson, Sam Huff, Ron Middleton - all at a Fauquier county SPCA event that they used to have every year. There were a bunch of no name guys that I met there as well.
Jim Lachey - Peebles in Warrenton, VA
Darrell Green
Art Monk
Charles Mann
Monte Coleman - know his inlaws personally
Ken Harvey
Gus Frerotte - ehhh...
Stephen Alexander - at Frostburg, he was nice enough to meet me at a side entrance of the dorms to sign a few autographs and hang out away from the crowds.
Brian Mitchell

I met Charley Casserly before a game once. I was hanging out outside the stadium and he walked by. I said hi and he actually stayed a talked for a few mins. There was nobody else around, so he didn't get mobbed.

I'm sure there's more, but this is just off the top of my head.
