    Chuck Foreman at Walmart in Winona, MN - today (Sat.) 9AM 11/04/06

    So I walk into Walmart after work tonight to pick up some RV antifreeze. I was walking down the main aisle when a big man was coming at me the other way carrying a duffle bag. I swore it was Chuck Foreman & I was pretty positive it was.

    I didn't want to stop & ask him, just in case I was mistaken, so I just passed on by. A little while later I bumped into my daughter VikingQueen & she asked, "Did you see Chuck Foreman?" Then I knew without a doubt it was indeed the former #44 Vikings superstar running back.

    As I was headed to the checkout, I noticed they were setting up a table in the front of the store & then they announced that Chuck would be signing autographs for a charity fundraiser until 8:00 tonight. Children's Miracle Network, I believe.

    (Edit: Chuck will be back tomorrow morning at 9AM)

    So if you're in the Winona, MN neighborhood, stop in, say hi to Chuck & get an autograph.

    I just went back home to drop a note on PP.O, pick up my camera & something for Chuck to sign & am headed back to Walmart.

    When I got back to Walmart, Chuck was already gone, but his table was still set up.

    I asked the manager at the customer service desk & he said Chuck will be there again at 9AM tomorrow morning (Saturday). I believe the first announcement I heard was either incorrect or he left early for one reason or another.

    But I will be back there tomorrow morning for sure.

    (Note: I edited the thread title to make it present day)

    Just got back from Walmart with a few pics & a few autographed items. Chuck is a top-notch guy & does alot of these charity events for worthwhile causes.

    A true super-star on & off the field.

    Man when I walked into Wal Mrt yesterday the first thing I saw was him not a second thought went through my mind bumped my b/f and said HEY that's Chuck Foreman I just knew it my b/f was like who being a Packer fan I understand that he had no idea who a Great NFL player is lol. The funny thing is I was gonna call my dad and say haha guess who I just seen then low and behold there he was right behind me. I was lucky enough to catch Chuck last time he as in Winona. He was such a nice guy and admire him for all the charity work he does!!!




    No matter how bad my life gets at least I m not a Packer fan.
