    The sky marshall tackling ya would have been worth it.

    You should have told the stewardess that he had a bulge in the back of his shirt, and that it could have been a gun!


    It would have been great to see the air Marshall take him down, and search him!


    Maybe he would have resisted and the Marshall might have kicked his a$$!
    What we've got here is failure to communicate.

    Hey yall, i just couldn't wait to get back and post this.
    I know were all vikings fans here but i just giggity when i see celebritys.
    so anyway, my wife, son and I flew out of Chicago-Midway (southwest airlines) on Fri 10/20, at 9:10am headed to louisville international airport, ky.
    so my wife and i sit in the 3rd row cuz we get preboarding (the only plus for traveling with younglings) and about the 12 person to board the plane was none other than Rex Grossman.
    i leaned toward my wife and told her, and of course she didn't know who the hell that was.
    anyway he walks by as i wasn't positive, but i knew it had to be him.
    as i watch him go sit down a few rows back i see the guy sitting next to me nodding his head up and down saying "yep" that's him.
    so i then knew it was him.
    Grossman wasn't even wearing a hat, just some headphones and was traveling by himself.
    i respected his privacy and didn't bother him on the flight.
    nor did i bother him when we got to louisville.
    the only proof i have is a pretty ugly camera phone pic.
    he started to turn the other way when he saw me standing in front of him with my phone pointed at him.
    i woulda stopped him if i had a real camera, but that was in my checked baggage.
    i just wish i was wearing a vikings shirt and had a camera on me as I woulda tried for something great.
    oh well, it will never happen again, but i just thought i'd post it here cuz i don't see celebs everyday.
    especially on a plain old southwest airliner.
    i heard he was from indiana, and thought that he musta grew up near the kentucky/'indiana border.
    dunno.
    but i know it was him.
    man i wish i had my camera.
    anyway, go ahead and flame me for this long and stupid post, but it was fun for me.
    anyone else have any stories???
    Well, where is the pic?
    If you are bucking for "Hamper Hider Junior Apprentice" status we need some video evidence.

    But then, you would do the same thing if you got to sit next to Steve Walsh!!!
    Must be Chris's brother?
    My bad...I meant Chris!
    But then NOTHING gets past the Tailgate Hottie!!!

    Last year during Arctic Blast I asked to get a pic with him and he said he didn't have time -he was on his way out the door with some nasty hoe. (I guess he didn't want to let the Viagra wear off)

    Re: grossman on my flight

    I met O.J. 'da Killer' Simpson back in the 70's. I was at a party at his aunt's house (she worked in a hospital with my aunt). I had a photo taken with him, and his big ole 70s Fro. He said he'd send a signed photo to me, and he did. I later sold both items for 50 bucks. That was before his slice and dice routine. I bet I coulda sold them for more than fifty! Who knew!

    I've got you all beat.

    I met Mr. and Mrs. Shockzilla AND Mr. and Mrs. AngloVike last year...

    ...then I met SingerSP, VikingQueen (Singer's Daughter), and VikingNed a few weeks later.

    I've met a handful of former sports figures through my life...none of whom really made me go, "Oooooh!"...mostly because I was a kid and none of them were people I knew anything about (Except Ernie Banks).
    But I completely understand the reaction people have.
    It's always cool to see someone you watch on TV in real life.

    You forgot me :P -or maybe that was the plan! ;D

    My wife literally bumped into Brian Urlacher as he was getting up from a blackjack table in Vegas. We saw him again later at a craps table. No pictures, though. Something about cameras on the floor of a casino that Vegas frowns on.
