To his credit, I believe he has a thing for the military. I contacted Drew's aid who works out of San Diego when I was deployed in like 2006. I told her I'd like to get a autographed picture of him. Took two weeks and I received it. While the luck was good I thought it might be a good opportunity to see if I could get a signed jersey. I corresponded with her and purchased a NFL jersey from NfL.com and had it sent to her San Diego address. She had an event to attend with Drew the following weekend. Sure enough about three weeks after the correspondence with her, my jersey showed up in Iraq signed by Drew.

Drew is one of the top 5 most likely NFL players to help an old lady across the street and dudes in pony tails have over the years, made him HAVE to act like that to fans. I just meant that's a side of being famous I don't want.
I myself am a man with long hair. Which means I wear it in a pony tail at times. I have never met any of my favorite athletes, but I did meet the singer of one of my favorite bands, nonpoint, and I specifically told him " I don't have anything for you to sign. Just wanted to shake your hand. Great show". He and the entire band were cool as hell to all of us there. I've never been one to go gaga over someone's celebrity status. They're still people.

My point in this, is that just because someone has a pony tail or a beard doesn't mean they are automatically a douchebag. If someone acts like an idiot or a jerk, than that's what they are. It has nothing to do with hair. I've never done anything but treat people around me with respect, as long as respect was due them. But through the course of my life I've had plenty of people treat me like garbage, and most of them were short haired. I never assumed their hair length had anything to do with their piss poor attitude.

If I had a nickel for every time I heard that, the NFL would fine and suspend me.

i've been through a few of those same experiences and i know a couple. here's 1 story. i had breakfast with a star player one morning in a hilton in dallas tex, that same day there was a press conference that i attended for some players to anwser ?'s about the nights game.well after the set, i went up to that same friend i just had breakfast with a few hours earlier to get a ball signed for my boss, well i got snubbed by my pal, he never looked at me just said he was out of time and sped off. i felt like the smallest guy in the room. terrible it was terrible. i let him know later too. lol he was a cousin of mine. explaination is they go into an eat or get eaten mode, thats all he said.

GO NEW ORLEANS

Jesuit! Hahahaa. It's a high school rivalry, gals. Don't get your panties in a bunch. If every young man at Jesuit, Rummel and BM didn't say anything bad about Holy Cross over the years, I'd be surprised. And the person that said it would be lying.

Man. No matter what you say in a forum, someone is gonna get upset. Pony tail activists are upset that I mischaracterized the guy trying to get 43's autobiography on an 11 x 14. Trust me. If you saw this guy... It's whatever.

Just be excited OTA's are beginning.

lol. Not sensitive at all. Go back and read what you wrote. I hated Holy Cross when I went to Jesuit. But I graduated a long time ago, and I have a lot of friends who went to HC. So I don't run around slamming the school or its people. Ironically enough, I went to HC for two years before being promoted to Jesuit.

Curtis Martin is one of the nicest people on earth...celebrity or not. Kobe is nicer than most folks give him credit for too.

There I was -- I was just sort of starting to turn.... just beginning to gear myself up towards mildly hating on Drew, with the recent direction of this thread...plus for weeks now I've been kinda cold, unemotional and ruthless about it all -- like, "yeah it's strictly a business," whenever I think about the Drew contract mess these days... and then I read this post of yours and I kinda remembered, oh wow, Drew can be freaking awesome sometimes. That's a really awesome story.
