met him in the parking lot on the way into champs last night. really nice guy.....i just welcomed him to indy and asked him about his injury and how it was coming along, he said he would be fine and 100% in the fall. later on in the night he was down by the band and i introduced him to a girl i know and they ended up hanging out quite a bit throughout the night.

the thing that surprised me was his height....most players end up being shorter than they're listed. granger is a legit 6'9" type player....the guy is huge. i met lamar odom a few weeks back and granger is right up there with him.

I was going to get an application from champs last night... but I figured they don't hire 16 year olds.

But... I did get one from old navy. :-p

Did the girl tell you what they talked about?

they were just dancing around and having a good time. it was at the end of the night and both had been drinking, so i doubt it was anything serious. she knows nothing about the NBA and could care less if he played pro ball, so i doubt it was basketball related either.

Danny drinking and cavorting with the local fare. Guess that answers any questions whether he's still a devout Jehovah's Witness or not.

Northside Champs or the one downtown? I assume northside since I know of no parkinglot for Champs downtown. Also, do you think the babe would be amenable to working as a mole for PD if she has Granger's digits?

Perhaps, he was witnessing to her. Maybe the JW's have had enough of doors being slammed in their faces and will now employ celebrities to bring their message to the masses one dance floor at a time, not unlike what Scientology has done. Accordingly, I expect to see big changes in Ron and Jax this year.

I wondered about that. And whether he stands for the Anthem.

"Drunk Rookie seen convorting with local flusey"

And some of you think Artest is a bad apple

Uh, I was kind of joking about the whole mole thing, but hey if the chick wants to pass along some inside info I'm all for reading about it. Maybe we can develope a red alert sytem here, since I'm only about 5mi from that Champs. I would have dropped everything last night to meet the rook. BTW, I didn't know that Champs had a dance floor. I thought it was just like a huge dining room with a bar and wall to wall TV's

I agree. I think most, if not all, were joking, however.

His farther must of been surgically removed from his hip then. I thought
JW's don't drink but i guess it could have been non alcholic.
ITs good to hear he lives up to the hype of being a nice guy.

i agree, it's not like he was doing anything different than the hundreds of other ppl there. he was a classy guy and kept his composure.

i have no idea if it was non alcoholic or not.........it could have been water for all i know. all i saw was him carrying a drink around.

I tried milk once, but I didn't swallow.

Why hasn't anyone asked the most important question yet?






When he was at the bar, was he drinking milk?

Yes, you're right. This pressing question needs to be answered immediately, since none of the local scribes have had the guts to ask Granger directly.

I am a bit more worried if he willnot have a beer or two. Frankly though I don't give a ****! Perdue, get your girl to get Granger on this board and talk with his fans, we are all excited about him coming to Indiana. Oh and thanks for the post, good to see the human side of a player.

I can just see Granger witnessing to Artest while enticing Tinsley to get closer with a bucket of chicken.
