Worst experience with an athlete

What's your worst experience with an athlete? Some of mine were when I met Mark Duper and he signed autographs for anyone and everyone that wasn't me and when Lenny Harris signed my hat upside down. I'm sure some of you have had far worse experiences so feel free to share them...

 

That's really not so terrible :blink:

 

Didn't say it was, but it still kinda sucked.

Well, I mean, yeah terrible was a poor choice of words, but I guess it's kinda funny in the context of "worst experience with an athlete"

 

I was expecting stuff like your Mark Duper stories and the Nathan Horton story

That's why I said "i'm sure some of you have had far worse experiences", but I get what you mean. My uncle was telling me yesterday about the time he ran into Mean Joe Greene at the mall and he told him to "go away cuz I don't want nobody to recognize me".

I sat in Batter's Box back in 98 for a game against the Pirates and went up to the little fence where players walked from the locker room to the dugout. I got a bunch of nice autographs, the best of which was getting to meet Derek Lee since I was like 10 years old and short and he was 6'6''. Anyways, I got just about everyone's autograph except Livan(who was pitching that night and needed to save his arm) and Craig Counsel (who just ignored and walked by like a douchebag). I cast a demonic curse on him and the following night he broke his jaw and his career as a Marlin was effectively over. :confused

 

Also, I refuse to believe the Nathan Horton story is that simple. There has to be more to it.

Bryan Randall (the starting Va Tech QB a few years ago) came back to my high school alma mater (also his) for a homecoming game. He had turned into possibly the most tremendous prick on the planet. Everyone he saw around him he would say to them "you want my autograph?" and then him and his buddies just burst out laughing. Fame went to his head I guess.

I went to a Marlins/Reds game once and sat next to the Red's bullpen, got to chat with Todd Jones pre-Marlinhood, which is kinda cool...

 

But pre-game Danny Graves was out playing catch in the outfield, and as they were wrapping it up, a few kids in the Power Alley seats were asking the balls and Graves did that crappy "pretend to throw it and drop it behind my shoulder" move like 3 times and just walked off, totally leaving the kids with nothing...

 

Danny Graves has sucked (even more than usual) since then...

I can probably top most of you: After waiting 1 hour in the 40 degree DC rain, Nathan Horton flicked me off from the Panthers bus window because I was cheering for them (wtf?)

Damn...really? Are you sure he was giving you the finger and not someone else? If so, that sucks. It doesn't even make sense! Nathan always seemed like a nice guy to me. But damn, that would almost take the cake....Even though I remember someone here said that his ex cheated on him with Hanley.

Went to see an A's vs. Yankees spring training game at Ft. Lauderdale Stadium in '94 and sat on the visitor's side. Before the game, Rickey Henderson was warming up in left field. After he finished and started walking back to the locker room, me and a small group of people walked along the fence, literally three feet in front of him. Someone asked if he could sign. He turns around and says one word: "No." When someone asks "Oh, come on, why not?" He turns around again and says "Because I don't have to." and walks away. I was 7 1/2 years old.

Unfortunately... I am positive. Wish it wasnt true, because I was a big fan of his.

Another funny story about Rickey, a little more recent. I believe this was a season or two ago in Mets Spring Training where he occasionally stops by as a special instructor.

 

Mets fan: Rickey will you sign please?

 

RH: Rickey don't sign on Sundays.

 

Mets fan: When DO you sign?

 

RH: Rickey don't know

 

*keeps walking away*

 

 

What a douche, but hilarious nonetheless.
