    So my stepdad is at a restaurant in Nashville and he walks by EG. He stops, turns around, and asks the obvious....."Are you Eddie George"? :ha: EG says "That's me".

    They chit chat for a minute, seems like a cool guy. Stepdad tells him where he works for some reason (he likes to talk), and EG knows exactly where it is in our town (Jackson, about 2 hrs from Nashville). So he gets two autographs, both on lunch menus for this restaurant :ha:

    I tell a co-worker about it, and he has an EG story. His son was at the airport and was sitting next to EG. They strike up a conversation and talk about football. EG asks the young man if he likes the sport, and the guy says "yeah, I played in high school". They talk about it for awhile and part ways.

    EG never said who he was or that he played in the NFL. The kid didn't know who he was until his father told him.

    I like both those experiences but that last one sounds really cool. EG sounds very down to earth.

    Unless you're an extremely stupid B like Paris Hilton, I would imagine most of those guys are down-to-earth, or at least get there soon. Fame can be really intrusive.
