How do you define met?

If it’s just a passing hello or something like that, Cal is probably my answer. He’s probably more famous than Griffey Jr.

If it’s had an actual conversation with, it would be Brooks.

I never had friends later on like the ones I had when I was twelve. Jesus, does anyone?

Intention was in-terms of shaking hands.... but yeah, actual conversation would be better.

There is baseball, and occasionally there are other things of note

"Now OPS sucks.  Got it."

"Making his own olive brine is peak Mackus."

Carson Palmer... 3x Pro Bowler... threw for 46k yards (12th all time), 294 TD's....    Not bad at all.

Met (as in shake hands) Ray Lewis or Derek Jeter.

 

Josh Charles & Ken Rosenthal i guess are the most famous people I actually know. Josh through Stan obviously and I worked with Ken many times on his old WJFK show.

2 questions:


1) Bigger thrill....having kids or shaking Jeters hand?
2) How long did it take for you to wash your hand after Jeter touched it?

1-Too easy

2-Still haven't.

 

 

Full disclosure, Jeter wasn't "Jeter" yet. it was 1996 during the playoffs, and obviously the Orioles were the focus. Way cooler looking back than it was at the moment.

This is a good question. 

 

Actual, honest-to-goodness conversation? I guess Ray Rice, a few times. Kweisi Mfume also comes to mind. Ben Carson a couple of times. 

 

Very quick handshake/conversation? Adam Jones, Brendan Haywood, Suggs, Tucker, Yanda, Jacoby Jones.

Don't forget that he won the Heisman and was the #1 pick in the draft.
