Kinda crazy,I was at my girlfriends house listening to espn1000 (chicago) on the computer and I was listening to "The Show" with Jay Hood.And he was asking people who their idols in sports were growing up,and there is nobody in sports nowadays that kids cant look up to.
I called the line,and after 2-3 rings this guy picks up and asks me my name and where im from (I was really caught off guard because I wasnt expecting an answer).So I tell him my name and where im from,he tells me to hold,I wait through a break (10mins or so),And the operator clicks over and says "Just hold on a few,brian".
Then im on the air,I tell Jay Hood that my idol growing up was reggie miller (i was very nervous calling in,i froze for a sec but I recovered).
I was saying that looking back on Reggie you couldnt find anything bad in his career.And I added a joke "well ya could if you were a bulls or knicks fan"..and he laughed.But I then went on to tell him about how on 11/19 you saw the clash of old school and new school "thug" nba players.
He agreed with me,and went on to talk about reggie and said he belongs on the list of great players to look up to.
Just thought id tell ya guys about that.
