Just a cool story that I thought I would share with my fellow PD'ers:
I took my car in this morning to a local dealership here in Indianapolis to have it serviced. To kill some time, I started walking around the dealership looking at various vehicles. While surfing the net at a computer terminal on the showroof floor, I looked over and who do I see? Mike Dunleavy and his beautiful fiancee looking at vehicles.
I was a little hesitant to say anything at first as I hate to bother well known figures when I see them out on their own time. However, Mike and his fiancee were very friendly and accomodating. I spoke to Mike for a few minutes and his fiancee was kind enough to take a picture of us using my cell phone. Mike did mention a few things:
-- Said he was happy that it was finally nice and sunny in Indy and not raining, haha
-- Said he liked Indy and would be here for a good part of the summer, although I did ask if he would be back in NYC to work out like he did last summer, and he mentioned he would be returning for a while this summer
-- I was joking around with him and mentioned "The Mike Dunleavy song" on youtube and he said that was all Foster's doing, haha
-- I congratulated both he and his fiancee as they are getting married this summer and his fiancee seemed pretty excited about that
Definitely made my day as he was just super friendly and nice. I've seen other Pacer players and NBA players out and Mike carried himself like he was an average guy and was very down to earth. It just gave me another reason to cheer for Mike and the Pacers. Thanks, Mike!!!!
