Famous Sports Stars You've Seen in Public

Recommended Posts

My leaguemates and I were chatting about the different sports stars we have seen out in public and I thought it might be a fun thread to start in the Off-Topic forum. It's surprising how many of us had a brush with someone or another outside of their place of work!

I saw Kareem-Abdul-Jabbar a few years back at my local grocery store and man, that guy is TALL. He bought a whole rotisserie chicken - not the little ones, the big ones. It was the size of a turkey.

Also on Monday I was in line at Subway behind current Clipper Caron Butler.

Who all have you seen out there in public?

Randomly or because you know them or know someone that knows them?

Randomly - i think those who were close with certain sports stars would prefer to remain anonymous. But if not, tell away!

Saw Pedro Martinez and David Ortiz in Niketown in Chicago in 2003 or 2004. They had a huge entourage with them.

I live in San Diego and Antonio Cromartie lived in my apartment complex, and I used to see him a few times a month walking around. It was weird because it's a decent complex, but nothing special. You wouldn't expect an NFL player to live there, but then I found out about the small tribe of children he fathered. He probably had to downgrade because of all of his child support payments

My family ran into Duke Snider in a Philly hotel lobby in 1983. We got his autograph on the back of a bank envelope.

More recently, I was at an Apple store and saw Winston Justice there buying iphones for him and his lady.

So, I've got a HoFer and an injury-prone lineman.....yay, me!

Saw some guys from the Argentina soccer team strolling along Fifth Avenue back in March, a few days before they played a friendly against the USA at Meadowlands. I walked right past them and then turned around after thinking, 'hey, those guys look familiar'. It wasn't the the typically chilly New York weather, but they were pretty bundled up.

Not a sports star, but one time, I was at a urinal doing my business and Lewis Black walks in the restroom and uses the one next to me.

FYI.....he didn't wash his hands. I walked out of the bathroom and saw him shaking hands with someone and tried not to laugh.

Old joke:

Two guys are in a public bathroom, using the urinals. One gets done first, and heads straight for the door. The other guy says, "At (insert school here), we learned to wash our hands after using the toilet".

The other responds, "That's fine, at (insert rival school here) we learned not to piss on our hands".
