Re: Who's the coolest that you met??

Well thats a tough Question. I have met well over a 100 players throughout the years. I guess the coolest would have to have ben Dallas Hickman. When I was younger and he played on the Skins from 76-81. He would come over to the house quite frequently. my father at the time was training a dog for him so we spent alot of time together. As for meeting a player at a card show or apprearance I would say Pat Fischer. I have met him many times over the years and each time he was a great guy to talk with. He always seemed to be very pleased that "us" fans had made the effort to come and meet him.
Class guy all the way.

See... even though I have to ask myself "who???" when you say Dallas Hickman... I think those stories are cooler than the card shows (even though I like the card shows)

Re: Who's the coolest that you met??

I got Theismann and Riggins autographs years ago on separate occasions. Theismann was pretty cool, he was watching his son Joey play football (he was still in his cast and crutches). Riggins was a prick from what I remember. He was watching his son play baseball at Wakefield Park I believe. He was real short with the kids, and it wasn't what I expected at all.

Re: Who's the coolest that you met??

Met Charley Taylor as a kid and he was the nicest guy. Remember him asking my name and signing a mini football for me. Then ruffled my hair and asked me who my favorite player was. I said Larry Brown and my dad giggled and said "you should always say the player you are getting the autograph from son". Charley and my dad both laughed and I was like..."but LARRY is my favorite" which brought even more laughs. Charley said Larry was a great guy and that he would tell him. I did not know it at the time but my dad gave him our address and 3 weeks later I got an autographed picture of Larry with "to my biggest fan". That was so classy, of both my dad and Charley. No ego...hell I was a little kid just telling it like it was. Charley WAS my favorite reciever then Roy Jefferson.
I also met Kurt Knight and Mike Bragg. Really nice guys too. At a golf outing a few years ago i met Ali-Haji-Sheik. I got to see his Super Bowl ring and even tried it on. He was cool but spoke little english and was amazed to find a Redskins fan in the heart of NJ.

Re: Who's the coolest that you met??

I think I've told these stories before....but John Riggins gave my brother a ride on his shoulders. Another time, Dexter Manley's wife was giving birth at the same time I was being born, and in the same hospital. He gave my dad his autograph and said "I hope your wife's ok"...classic Dexter...I wonder if he just signed with a big X

Re: Who's the coolest that you met??

George Allen

1981 - I was 16 when I got to sit in the booth with Sonny, Sam & Frank during a game. Frank took me down on the field, and we bumped into George Allen on the way out of the booth. I just about passed out. My hands were shaking so hard I couldn't get the cap off my pen. He smiled and said "Here, I think I have one".

Charles Mann - A couple years ago, I took the same paper (sheet music to Hail to the Redskin, now covered with autographs) to get Charles Mann's autograph and when he saw my paper he grinned and said "Wow!" Then "You have George Allen!".

Re: Who's the coolest that you met??

I've only met a handful of players but the coolest I have met is Marcus Washington. He was in Dulles Mall this summer in Sterling VA and he just happened to be eating lunch in the same place same time as me. I had a Skins jersey on and he noticed it and asked if I was a fan. I said yes, talked with him a little bit got a picture and was off. Great guy.

Back in 1981, Neal Olkewicz, he was bartending at a bar in Georgetown and I asked to write "Fuck the Cowboys" and sign it. He complied and I still have it somewhere in storage around my house.
