Players around town
 
Has anyone ever ran into a player out of the Blue? Like at a resturant or a club or even at Best Buy? Are they nice guys? Do you ask them to sign an autograph or do you leave them alone.

Well, I just ran into 4 Cleveland Browns, and I ignored them. If they were Steelers, I would have walked up, offered them a drink, asked them a couple questions, then left.

What Browns players did you run into Suit?

I ran into Ben Roethlisberger, Heath Miller, and couple others after the Pitt/Notre Dame game. I was walking past 'Bahama Momma's' where Woodson's bar used to be at in Station Square and they walked past me headed to the club. I just kept walking cause it was like 12am and they were up the steps by the time I realized it was them.

Ben's a fun guy. I saw him at Midget Madness at Casey's Draft House on the Southside on a Monday Night last Fall. The place is always packed on Mondays, and he was drawing attention, but it was manageable.

I don't get out as much as I used to, but Pittsburgh's a big small town. It's inevitable you run into the guys. The hockey players I see ALL the time, used to run into Jagr & Ian Moran frequently at food places near Southpointe.

I haven't, but my neighbor ran into Randle El at Joe's Crab Shack. Plus there's a whole "friend of a friend" thing connecting my brother to Max Starks.

I've seen a few athletes....Haynes, Ben, Ward, Taylor. I don't bother them. Depends on the setting, normally I say hello ir scream "GO STEELERS!!!!" if I'm in a bar. I don't ask for autographs.

I actually met Russ Grimm and Joe Jacoby(when they were still playing with the Redskins) many years ago at Kilroy's Bar in Northern Virginia.
They were hanging out having a few drinks before being the guest Judges for a Bikini Contest that was going on that night.

They were pretty cool and down to earth guys.
