Default 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.

He's ready, Steelers fans. His ordeal over, his return will be complete come Saturday in Arizona, when football again becomes the focus and a career briefly interrupted resumes.

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.
