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

I can't believe I haven't heard anyone say LaVar yet. I met LaVar at Dickenson when they were on a break between practices and he was awesome; signed jersey's toook pictures the works must have talked to him for close to a half hour and he was real cool, not at all irritated. Also ST was an awesome person to meet. I met him a few times and he was a great guy but my uncle called me from a hooter's in the d.c. area and said Sean Taylor was there, this was right around the time of the whole ATV stealing incident, and I told my uncle to tell him that I got his back if he needs me just joking around well my uncle walked up to him and asked him to sign a coaster for me and it reads" To Vince, my future body guard, Sean Taylor" and that is my far the most memorable moment I will have from #21. Also Smoot is the man, he loves his fans as much as they love him and he has been great everytime I have talked to him. Portis is another great one...loves the fans

Presidential duty? What does your dad do? Is he in the Secret Service?

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

I'm not into autographs but I've spoken to several players when I ran into them in public. I met Doug Williams years ago when he was an assistant at Navy, and he couldn't have been any nicer. When I shook his hand, I was struck by how large his hand was - pretty much swallowed my hand whole.

I met Tiki Barber Thanksgiving weekend at my family's morning tailgate prior to the recent UVA - VA Tech game. Also a very nice guy - we gave him a Bloody Mary when he stopped by. I told him that I was a Skins fan, but really respected the way he ran the ball. We chatted a little about his new career which I think will be a good one for him - he's pretty smooth in front of the camera.

I am not worthy. Billy was the man, old school #17.

Stephen Davis was the coolest Redskin that I ever got a chance to meet.

Totally agree about LaVar. He may not have left on good terms, but I'll always think of him as a true Redskin.

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

When Jay Schroeder was third string (or maybe 4th, I was 10 or 11) he was jogging by my school one Saturday while a group of us were playing football. He asked if he could QB for us and none of us realized who it was. Until he told a friend of mine to "go deep". Deep for a 10 year old is much different than for a budding NFL QB. I don't know how far he threw it but it seemed like a mile to us. I know Schroeder got a bad rep here but it was so cool having him throw it around with a bunch of kids. I still didn't believe him when he said that he'd be playing for the Skins(most of us had Skins shirts on). But later I saw him on TV and recognized him. It's the only time I got bruises from just catching balls.
Second coolest:
I was in a bar in Centreville at 11 am one Tuesday in December right after I turned 21. My buddies and I were drinking and arguing football. In my altered state of mind I was arguing that Riggo was better than any back in the league at the time (1995). John Riggins overheard us and told my friends that he agreed with me and bought me a beer. Then he shot the breeze with us for a little bit until the guy he was waiting for got there and the two went into the restaurant area.
Funniest:
Georgetown Leather in the mid-80's. My father (not a football fan) bumped into a rather large man and dropped his bag. The man apologized even though it was my father's fault and picked up the bag for him. My father was pretty rude to him and once outside I told him, "Dad, that was Dexter Manley."
"The guy who knocked out the Cowboys QB? Damn, probably should've been nicer, huh?"

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

Ken Harvey was very cool to talk too, super nice guy. Gary Clark and Ricky Sanders were fun. Brian Mitchell was hilarous. Darrell Green was nice. As a matter of fact all of them were nice. Patrick Ramsey, Fred Smoot, Chris Cooley, Randy Thomas, Joe Gibbs, Chris Samuels, Ray Brown, Mark Mosley, Don Warren, Pat Fischer was awesome, I know Im missing a few, but Id have to say the coolest was Portis. I was leaving training camp last year and stopped to get gas at a place not far from camp. I walk in and theirs Portis in the candy isle with a pack of twinkies in one hand and a box of condoms in the other! It was a funny sight. We started talking while in line and all the way out to his truck, just a super cool guy. I ask him to autograph my hat, he says sure, as hes getting in his truck so I hand him the hat and look in the passenger side and their is Santana Moss. He was pretty quite, but nice. Met Portis their after another practice, chatted again and he took a great pic with my son. I used to see Bruce Smith out at alot of bars down in Va Bch before he was a Redskin, by most accounts a real prick. Oh yeah, Ladell Betts and Mike Sellers were awesome as well. Sellers is a big dude! His chest is as big from front to back as it is from side to side, seriously!

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

After talking w/ my mom about this one she reminded me of perhaps the coolest. After retiring from football, Virgil Seay was a teacher's assistant for special students at the elementary school I went to (and my mom worked at). Didn't realize it at the time, but definately a class act.

Don't meet a lot of skins in Oklahoma but Stephen Alexander was a cool guy while he played at OU.

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

I got to meet Phil Mickelson at this past year's AT&T National at Congressional Country Club in Bethesda. I talked to him briefly about the Skins, he said he was a fan of our new young QB. Very cool, surreal, moment for me, one I'll never forget. As far as for actually Skins players I got to stand about 5 feet away from Antwaan Randle El, he's shorter than I thought he would be.
