Cool story, Matty...Thanks for sharing.

They usually are pretty down to earth...A few years back, I ran into Lawyer Milloy (when he still played for us [sad2]) at a bar in Boston. Chatted him up for a bit, and he even bought me and my date a drink (I think he only did it because he could tell she was pissed I was standing there talking to him for 10 minutes and _totally_ not paying any attention to her [laugh])

My wife worked for NFL Properties for almost 13 years in Marketing and Promotions. One of the functions was to hire players for advertisers events and functions during the Super Bowl. Now I was never a small guy but I felt like a runt next to some of these guys. We did a lot of events with the Saints. At least I didn't feel too small next to Michael Lewis and Rickie Williams. Felt good to have them look up to me when we talked.

I have noticed some athletes are down to earth and cool. Was talking with a woman who did card shows and was telling me how one day she had Yaz at a signing and there were a lot more people than expected. He was signing til like 3 or 4pm and he had a flight out in Worchester or such at like 7pm. The lady asked if he could stay, looked at all the people there to see him and said 'Just make sure there is car outside with a case of cold beer and I will stay a few hours more.'

She said he didn't want more money, just not to miss his flight.
