    I got to meet

    Jerry Robinson, (LB for the Eagles and Raiders 1979-1991), today at the local K-Mart. He was signing autographed pics and selling them for $10 to raise money for the March of Dimes. I was walking by wearing my Viking hat when he called out "Hey Viking" :smile: Very nice guy.

    Re: I got to meet

    Yeah, I remember him...actually, I saw him at a Jeffrey Osborne concert in Vegas...it was a lounge show and he was a big table with a bunch of his homies...anyway, JO was singing the "Woo Woo Woo" song and he was going around and making different people at different tables sing the chorus...he gets to Jerry's table and announces to the crowd who Jerry is...then Jerry grabs the mike and starts singing...but he wasn't that good and his homies started clowning him...everybody else in the room (including us) started laughing too...he was a pretty good sport about it though.

    I had forgotten all about that, but I do agree with RK that he is a very nice guy! Pretty good linebacker in his day too...especially in college (USC, I think)!

    For those who don't remember the lyrics:

    You Should Be Mine (Woo Woo Song) - Jeffrey Osborne

    When you want all the warmth that you deserve
    And the heat is on your mind
    Don't you even think about it
    I'll be there just wrapped around you
    I can't hold back what I feel inside. Its just a fact

    1st chorus
    That you should be mine. Anything you want
    Youve got to fortify my love, you fortify me,
    You should be mine. Anything you want
    Youve got to fortify my love

    2nd chorus
    And you woo-woo-woo, and you woo-woo-woo
    And you woo-woo-woo.
    You should be mine, all mine


    Any way that your heart has been denied
    Ooh, you can come to me
    Every time that were together
    Just becomes the good thing weve got
    Something this good can't be defined. One things for sure

    1st chorus
    2nd chorus x 2

    In the height of your worries
    Worries runnin too deep for you
    When it all becomes too much, too much, too much
    I'll pull you through
    I can't hold back, what I know inside. Its just a fact

    1st chorus
    2nd chorus x 3
    BANNED OR DEAD...I'LL TAKE EITHER ONE

    I think he goes to a lot of the games at the dome. When I was there last year my dad and brother were sitting a few rows up from him and got a picture of him as he was walking up the stairs.

    I'm pretty sure Coach Grant goes to all of the games.
