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

I recently met DG at an opening of Circuit City and got a photo with him and my kids. That was cool. My rents met Theisman at the Kennedy Center. Not sure how that happened. Wouldn't be the first place I'd figure he'd spend an evening. My topper, however, is I just met President Bush at the White House this past Monday. Very, Very cool experience. Kinda bummed that he kissed my wife, a native Texan, but not me. Oh well...Guess the First Lady might not have approved (loud coughing sound). Be well or well...just be.

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

The only player I've ever met is Fred Smoot. It was at the draft day party in 04. The year we drafted ST. He sat at our table for about 20 minutes near the radio booth talking to us about Taylor and signing a few things for me and my father.

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

I moved to charlotte a few year ago and have met a few of the stars from around here. I met Stephen Davis a couple years back while he was playing here with the Panthers (i believe he actually was injured that year or something) but anyway he was a real cool guy. He sat down and chatted, talked to my son, who was like 2 at the time, real nice guy. I met Moose Muhammed right before he signed with Chicago, nice guy, signed an autograph for my son. let me just tell you, dude is big. his hand wrapped around mine twice. I also met Bernie Bickerstaff in Panera. He was funny as hell. It was right when the Bobcats drafted Phelton and May and he was busting on them saying they needed to get their asses in shape and in camp.

So, I guess this was one of those where I couldn't see the forest because the trees were in my way???

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

for me i,ve seen many of the old guys like theismann at a car dealership here in greenville after he broke his leg ,got his autograph.and another charity deal at a school i think it was in williamston gym where there was quite a few reskins there playin in a charity basketball game ,ravin caldwell,alvin walton ,todd bowles,kurt goveia (sp) and a few others where i had my superbowl xxii hat autograprahed all over it that was a great deal escpecially watching kurt eat a hotdog during the game on the bench.but what i cherish the most is in 1993 after my heart was broken due to his retirement i was able to go to charlotte and meet and talk with joe gibbs in the trailer at then charlotte motor speedway and signed a few things for me too.all i can say is he is one humble religious man to say the least and he,s very soft spoken.
that day i cherish the most and i remember it like it was yesterday.....

priceless.

Too funny! Gibbs does everything with his guts out.

In 1990, I met Mark Rypien on Easter Sunday in Annapolis. I've never been an autograph guy, but I like to go up to players, tell them that I appreciate what they do, and wish them luck for the upcoming game or season. Rypien was with his wife and infant, yet he still chatted with me for a couple minutes just after the service - just a genuinely nice guy. A very big guy for a QB too - he looked to be about 6'4" and a solid 235-240 lbs.

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

I've met several, but here are my favorites...When Sam Huff was playing for the Redskins, I was shopping in a grocery store and I saw Sam in the checkout line. I waved and said (like an idiot), "Hey, Sam...I went to WVU, too!" I was too excited to think of anything else to say. He smiled and answered in a very friendly tone. Of course I don't remember what he said because I was too thrilled to have met him.

Then several years ago when Joe Jacoby was playing, I had my wife and kids out at Cox's Farm. It's a place where you take your kids to get a taste of farm life, to feed the animals, and to buy pumpkins, jellies, pies, etc. Joe Jacoby had his family there, too, and no one was pestering them...except me. I went up to him and told him how much I loved the Redskins, and how well I thought they were playing. He thanked me, and I left before I made a bigger pest out of myself. But I was thrilled to have this brief encounter with a great player.

Gary Clark and Mike Nelms...When we asked Mike if we could see his SB ring (we wanted to see it on his hand), he pulled it off and allowed us to hold it and if we wanted put it on. Sounds goofy, but growing up admiring these guys, that was a big deal for a thirty year old.

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

I met Jim Lachey in the summer of 91 at football camp. spoke to him for about an hour about working out, and the NFC East d-linemen. Awesome guy, very down to earth. I remember I thought it was crazy, but he didn't squat more than 225 lbs. He prefered leg-presses, lunges, and cleans.

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

Back in the 80s, my Dad was the Parts and Service Director at BMW of Fairfax. Every once in a while, he'd come home with autographs (Ken Houston, Curtis Jordan, Jeff Bostic, Darrell Green to name a few). Somehow, Darryl Grant was involved with the company that owned the dealership, and came to the Company Picnic one year. Nice as could be. Let my Mom try on his Super Bowl XXII ring. Those things up close and personal are unreal. The only other football run-in I've had was watching Chris Cooley play softball. He doesn't look that big, but he can motor.

My Dad has since worked at Lexus of Rockville, and now is at Manhattan Jaguar, Lincoln/Mercury, Land Rover. When I was in high school, I worked for him at the Lexus dealership for a few months washing cars on Saturday mornings, and got to see Michael Westbrook's ride (Lexus LX450; which had something like 10 car batteries in the trunk to power all the equipment he had), as well as Rip Hamilton's ride (I want to say it was a Toyota Land Cruiser, but I can't remember). A while after I stopped washing cars, one of his employees got her nephew to come in every once in a while...Terrance Morris (former Terp star). He's also had dealings with Patrick Ewing, Steve Francis, and a few other sport stars. Not sure who frequents the Manhattan dealership these days...I'll have to ask him.
