And a year with Geno would be freakin awesome.
Not my experience. I met him in a parking lot in Riverfalls, WI @ TC and he couldn't have been more rude! Totally blew me off and told me to get out of there.
I spent $140 on a jersey, drove 3 1/2 hours one way just to go up there and get his auto that year and in :30 seconds he tore me down.
Then in a bar late that night I got to here from this gorgeous, big chested blonde how he signed his cleats and gave them to her that night. Yea, he was a great guy.
I've gotten over it, except for when I read stuff like this, then old feelings come out. I try to remember all the great plays he made for the Chiefs and the good times me and my son had watching him cause he was my sons favorite player.
I have stopped trying to get auto's (in person anyways) since then and just leave that for the kids. It was pretty demeaning to have someone do that to me as a 40+ year old. Not going to put myself in that position again.
