so i remembered a thread a few weeks back where everybody was talking about meeting sports stars and i had an encounter last night worth mentioning. i live in dc and have caps seasons tkts, so every once in awhile they'll do a screen shot of one of the redskins during the caps game on the big screen.
so during second intermission i head out with some buddies to grab another beer and sure enough Chris Cooley comes walking through. he seemed like a good dude, stopping to take pics with everybody, sign some autographs, whatever. my buddy, who is a huge skins fan, took off running. i, however, had some liquid courage. i walked up to cooley, looked him straight in the eye, shook his hand, and told him that i was a huge fan...
of the detroit lions.
the look on his face was a mix of astonishment and disgust. and that ended my drunken encounter with a sports star.
