    Default Oh snap!!! Guess who I saw

    I saw Derrick McKey at Benihana at Keystone at the Crossing tonight eating at the Hibachi grill LOL. I had to do a double take and indeed it was him.
    Help us Paul George......you're our only hope

    Can't say that this would one-up you, but I believe I saw Billy Keller actually driving a "Billy Keller Basketball Camps" van on I-465 yesterday. Couldn't do the double take without endangering life and limb.

    Yeah, I've seen that same van with Mr. Keller pulling out of the Fieldhouse garage late after a game, once.

    You didn't sign any contracts with him, did you?

    That would explain the winning streak...

    I tend to like these threads. It reminds me of the time I was at Circle Center mall and saw all the Pistons. I was standing behind Rasheed Wallace at the Asian Wok. Dude looked pencil thin...very long but not as tall and not as big and physical as I expected.

    I saw the police escorted Ravens buses on 465 yesterday at 4:45. They must have stayed up north, instead of downtown. Saw them about 71st street exit and 465 headed north on 465.

    Just before the start of the game yesterday I had to make a phone call so I went up to the concourse. As I made my call I for some reason am inclined to turn around. I then see Slick Leonard walking towards me. I didn't want to bother him as I was sure he was on his way to put on the headset. But it's SLICK LEONARD! I said "Mr. Slick Leonard?" and he stopped and turned towards me and I asked him if I could shake his hand, thanked him for all he does/has done for pacers basketball and asked if I could bother him for an autograph if he has the time. It all took place over roughly 15 sec. He's a very very nice man and I could tell that even tho he was on his way to work he didn't mind taking a few sec for a fan. I tend to regress into a child like mentality when in the presence of people I look up to in sports. But I love it
    So I got my handshake and my Slick Leonard autograph. tWas a very nice experience. And THAT, my friends, is why you always bring a Sharpie with you to sporting events.

    "BOOOOM BAAABBYYYY!!"

    Why would they be heading North from 71st street? Shouldn't they be heading to the stadium around that time? Were they lost? lol

    **Edit** This topic reminds me, years ago I saw Rik Smits in the weirdest place. Effingham, Illinois. I was going to St. Louis and we stopped in Effingham at a Cracker Barrel. Sure enough, I see this giant man walking out and it was freakin Rik Smits. What a random damn place to run into a former Pacers player, no?

    Oh man, Effingham sucks. Of all places for Rik to be...maybe there was a dirt bike race there or something that day/weekend.

    That was the same reasoning I had, I've always known that's a hobby of his. It just seemed so stinking random.

    Yeah, talk about random places to see Pacers. I was a the Wabash Yacht Club (Bar at Purdue now out of business) and Scott Pollard was there. I believe it was a football game day, but I can't remember which. It was just prior to him no re-signing with the team. He was much thinner and more athletic looking than on television.

    I also met Scott at the place were I used to work, I even got a picture with him close to the same place I went to eat lunch with my girlfriend(panera bread in 86th and michigan road) and saw a big guy coming out of a Jeep Rubicon with big tires, for my surprise the guy that was coming out of the car was no other than Ron Artest, this was like a week before the brawl when nobody really care about him.

    I just thank God it was Pollard & not Dale Davis, could you imagine what I would have said then? Nevermind, don't think what I would say then.
    I could think of a few things, none of which are appropriate for Pacers Digest.
