I was on my way to work after school and as I walked up to my car, which I park on the street in front of my house, a black Chrslyer 300 S with heavey tinted windows pulled next to me and rolled down its window. I was a little worried but figured it was just the new neighbors who moved in introducing themselves. I turned around and there was David Harrison. He just said hey "do you know where bella vita is?" I gave him directions to the resteraunt and told him good luck this season. He then thanked me and then drove off. Just thought I'd share with everyone what I thought was kind of a cool experience. I wonder if he was going to meet Reggie for lunch? (Reggie's fav resteraunt is bella vita according to his outside the lines special that was on FOX sports a few years ago)

Good thing you told him where it was. You wouldn't want to make him angry, you wouldn't like him when he's angry.

Or hungry I assume. :)


Pretty cool/odd experience. I once ran into Perkins headed to Vegas, and then saw him on the return flight, and then a week after that ran into him at the downtown O'Malias. Very strange, especially the grocery store, and just all within a week basically, never before or after that.

Pretty cool. Also, very telling of David's personality that he's willing to ask joe schmoe for directions instead of investing in a GPS or calling whoever he's supposed to meet.

Karl Malone asked one of my high school english teachers, a woman who happened to be living in SLC, Utah at the time, how one could tell if melons were ripe --> they were in a supermarket by the way...oh, and she isn't a "little Mexican girl" if that's what you're wondering...

I think Hulk was just scouting things out. I'd bet that he really wanted to eat you.

Just don't talk **** to him, like that obnoxious newspaper vending box back in Boulder, and you'll be okay.

When I was in high school, our basketball team went to the state finals (and won) and I was in the Pep Band that went to Conseco. When the game was over, the band was escorted out thru the parking garage below the building. A bunch of really nice vehicles were down there, mostly Hummers and Cadillac SUVs. As we were walking out, a few players and coaches (3 or 4) came into the garage. One of them was Al Harrington. When I saw him I yelled "6th man of the year", then he pointed over toward me and said "I like your style, kid." Then he got into his Hummer and drove off.

---so there's my little player run-in story.

Nice stories!


Back in June, I was driving to work. I have to pass Warner Bros. Studios on my way to work, and one day I made a mid-afternoon run home to grab some lunch. On my way back I pulled up to a stoplight that has a turn entrance into one of WB's gates. There was a gold SUV in the turn lane, and out of the corner of my eye I could tell there was a very big guy sitting in the passenger seat. I looked over, and to my surprise, it was Ron Artest and he was looking back at me. Didn't recognize the driver.


Also, back in the '05 Playoffs, I picked up my gf from the airport (Indy). The Pacers just had it handed to them by the Pistons, and the game hadn't been over for thirty minutes. When I got to the airport I parked my car and walked all the way from the parking garage to the escalators by the American Airlines desk with a badly limping Jonathan Bender and his gf/wife. And after I met my gf we were walking back and we ran into him again. I think the surprising thing to me was that he made it to the airport at the same time I did. I know I was further away, but I left before the game is over. Bender had to not only leave the game, but fight the downtown traffic. I didn't.

They always say that melons are the best bait for hunting little Mexican girls.

Of course not, everyone knows there are no mexicans (female or otherwise) in SLC.

Back in the mid 90's I was at a stereo show at the State Fairgrounds and I was looking at 10 inch kickers (that's all I could afford) and this HUGE guy standing next to me was buying 8 (yes 8!) 15 inch. I looked and it was Rik Smits. And he was with a girl that I bet was barely 5 foot tall.

Don't ask him to dance either.

No, her melons were just fine! Wait, what? Did I, uhhh...? Ewww... "Come on!" (Spoken like G.O.B from Arrested Development)

That's what I hear...

I've heard this too...


I'm sorry I brought this issue up. Poor Dr. *$^#&A*! (I've censored the name out of respect for her, her melons, and any further fruit-related innuendos about her)

I met Rik Smits in a grocery store before, he was picking out some lettuce FWIW.

I also got Tony Siragusa's autograph at a Pacer game before.

Smits - didn't meet him but this story is funny

We are at a Bills thrashing of the Colts on Sunday night ESPN, end of first quarter and Kelly has already thrown 2 TDs (one to Reed) and Thomas has run one in (man, those days sucked).

Anyway, near halftime my buddy and I walk around the concourse a little and run into another 2 friends. Now neither were big sports fans, but still...one of the two says "who's this tall mother Fer?" My buddy and I turn to look behind us and there is Rik and some very tall girl just hanging out in the crowd about 10 feet away.

But him not knowing Rik Smits and having that attitude of "look at this freak" still cracks my buddy and I up.




"Come on!" (Spoken like G.O.B from Arrested Development)
Brilliant.

Sidebar - best GOB moment, his chicken impersonation. We break into that (and the other family variations) all the time. :D
