The perks of my job...

Recommended Posts

Ran into Victor Cruz yesterday. I had to speak to the captain on the flight I was working and saw him sitting in First Class. Couldn't say more than hi though cause I was busy as hell. Just figured I'd share.

Well I met Tiki on the street, but he's hated on this board, so let's just say I didn't meet him.

 

I do have a picture with Alex Ferguson from a few years back, but you have to know soccer and Manchester united, so I expect "who the fuck is Alex Ferguson".

I've met a bunch. Most are assholes. exception: Marquis Grissom and Wayne Gretzky.

Gretzky always seemed to me to be a really nice guy.

I've met Tuck...he seemed like a decent guy. I've heard of the 80's Giants being assholes, especially McConkey and Simms.

Never met an NFL player but have met my fair share of NHL and some CFL players.

 

The Staal brothers, Crosby, Patrick Sharp, Taylor Pyatt, Eric Lindross and a few others.

I wont mention any CFL players cause not like anywhere here besides me watches the CFL.

Hockey players seem to be pretty grounded, especially compared to other sports.

I was staying at the Intercontinental Hotel in London after the Giants v Miami game in 07.

Managed to get into the Miami team party after the game at the same hotel ( whilst wearing my #80 Shockey )

Got talking to Jason Taylor at the bar for 20 minutes and bought him a whisky, What a bloody great guy.

The Miami players and coaches were so relaxed and friendly in London it was an amazing experience.

This... I've met about half of the 86' Mets (At a charity event for cognitively delayed children and adults) .... Class A Number One Assholes the whole bunch. The last of the hard drugging, sexing, and liquor drinking "champions". Personally I was never into the meet the star athlete thing and always appreciated the athletes who would publicly state that they were not role models along with stating that a kid should look up to his parents. Or some variation thereof... :D

McConkey is a Grade Triple AAA Asshole. To be as talent less as he was...he really played up that Joe Lunch Pail bullshit...then if any of the "little" people dared enter into his august presence...you were made to feel as if his shit was ambrosia.

I've met a few low level athletes, can't even remember most of their names, but my sister and her husband ran a marketing company that set up Kelley Washington's football camp locally. Met some backup dlineman and shit like that.

That's because baseball players are fucking stupid.

 

Literally, they are THE stupidest athletes I've ever met in my entire life. If the teams didn't tell them what to eat and when to eat it, they'd look like Sierra Leone refugees.
