I think mainly because his friendly friend at the time worked with my mom. If there weren't some gettin some on the line, he might not have been nice to a kid in front of his current target.

He tells Will he goes to JEsuit and he is his idol, told him he always wonders if he is sitting in Wills old desk, etc.. To which Will replied "kiss my @$$, i dont have time for autographs". hes a typical jesuit pr!ck

He was a ***** before he went to Jesuit. It wasn't Jesuit that made him a *****. Matter of fact you kind of sound like a ***** making a statement like that about Jesuit, and the good people who proudly attended Jesuit.

So was Darren Sproles nice at least? Having lived in the L.A. area for a while now I've met my share of celebrities. Some of them are awesome. Jamie Lee Curtis is awesome awesome awesome. Sally Field held the door for me once. Lol.

Regarding football players, I got to meet Felix Jones at Robert Meachem's charity event last summer and he was awesome. Meachem was nice too although he is very quiet.

Settle for a fist-bump and you'll never be disappointed. Not that you were wrong by any means, it's just tough to be let down in that way.

A bad experience like that would SOUR me horribly. I think Drew just needs to sign on the dotted line and STFU. It's not like we're gonna send him to Afghanistan to diffuse IED's or something!

Now you got me pizzed. Damn.

Darren seemed a little annoyed but he didn't tell anyone no. But there were only 15 different people/couples looking toget something signed by him. Drew graduated a long time ago to devoting a special time for pics and autographs so he's more strict at all other times during the event.
I'll tell you where I went wrong. I thought I deserved a picture and acknowledgement for one reason or another. I also forgot that to him, I'm just another fan. San Diego has a lot of fans. It doesn't have that many die-hards displaced by the very storm that brought him to New Orleans. Oh well. I'll live the same life if I never meet or try to meet another celebrity.

It's good that you finally did get a picture with him. Being as famous as Drew means he is probably mobbed everywhere he goes and for ever snub he probably proudly signs 100 autographs so you have to be understanding.

When I was in junior high I went to a football card show and Dan Marino was there. I asked him to sign 2 things (an autograph sheet and a card) and he looked at me like he wanted to kill me. I've hated him ever since. Die Dan Die!

In all seriousness, I don't think any professional athlete should sign an autograph from anyone over the age of 18. All they are good for is either making a kid happy or making an adult money. If you're a Saints fan, and an adult, be happy with a picture and a 'Who Dat'. It's a name on a piece of paper for God's sake.

Absolutely. I wanted his autograph on my custom Scotty putter all Saints'd out. I'd never sell it in a million years if he did sign it. But I just wanted a picture. I did end up getting an email - since I made this post - from my buddy who got a few great pics from a random guy there. One pic had me in it. Thank God. Drew is mouth breathing and looking at the ground kinda. But whatever. At least it's in focus.

I agree.
I was in Piitsburgh airport over xmas and my wife and I shared the tram ride to the gates with Lynn Swann and family. I grew up a Steeler fan (team B) and admittedly I was staring until I could confirm it was him. He smiled and gave me the head nod 'yeah, it's me'. I was going to take his pic with my cell, but I thought, What the hell would I do with that?
