I read these articles a few months ago and loved them, then when I wanted to find them again I couldn't remember what site they were on. Thanks for posting this.

My mom has a picture of me with Rocky during his playing days, when I was 2 years old. He ran into her (literally) in a department store, and nearly knocked her down. He apologized over and over, and even helped her carry her bags out to our car, where luckily, she had her camera.

I ran into Franco when I was living in AZ - he was there for the Super Bowl (the ODonnell one) - there were a lot of events leading up to the game - I went to one Franco was at - there were a lot of people yelling for his autograph and he said politely "sorry guys, I'm here for the fans and charity - not to make you money with my autograph" - he kept walking so I yelled "hey Franco you had 1055 yards your rookie season, you had 158 yards in SB IX and were the MVP, etc after a few more stats I said "I'm one of your biggest fans!" -- he turned around and walked over to me and said "I'm sorry these guys have been following us all week" - he then glared at two of the idiots he was referring to because they were sticking several mini Steeler helmets in his face to sign and you could see they had a whole box of them along with Cowboy ones too - he glared at them until they backed away and then he grabbed a pen out of his pocket to sign an autograph for me - I said " I don't want an autograph - I just want to shake your hand and tell you I had a great time watching you play when I was a kid" - he flashed a huge Italian smile and said "thanks man - you just made my day.."
