George Brett harassed by stalker

A douchebag autograph collector approached George Brett at KCI last night. Brett signed the autograph but told him "This is the last ****ing time" and said if he saw him again he'd shoot him.

This sounds kind of bad, but I don't blame George Brett one bit. This asshole has approached Brett 35 times now asking for his autograph so that he can sell it. He was obviously expecting (and probably hoping for) an angry confrontation. Why else would he have his cell phone out recording the whole thing?

This ****head needs a serious ass-kicking.

If you didn't know that before seeing this video, then you don't know George.

I don't think I've ever heard a good story about anyone meeting him. They range from him being a dick to kids wanting autographs to him being an obnoxious drunk with bad BO. He'll always be my favorite baseball player, but I would never want to meet him in person. I got an autographed Brett ball at a 37 Forever event once - that's good enough.

But I don't blame him one bit for telling this guy to **** off.

yeah, if the douche had asked him like 35 times, I suppose I don't blame him.

Kind of screws fans like myself that would keep it forever.
Actually got to meet him out at a Chiefs game. He was with Jamie Quark and some other Royals players tailgating. He took the time to get a picture with me, asked how I was doing, we talked chiefs and he offered me a beer-which I gladly accepted and drank it with him.

I found out he was going into have shoulder surgery the next day-I wish I would have know I would have wished him well.

I also had the pleasure to meet him again at his retirement party at Starlight. Couldn't have been nicer and more graciouse-just an all around great guy. As real as it gets. If you treat him with respect he does the same back.

At his retirement there was a line of family and friends around Leslie Brett-talking and giving her hugs-so I just got in line- said congrats and gave her a big long hug-lol About half way through the hug I think she realized she didn't know me-but smiled anyway. She is pretty hot and also very sweet.

George is the man. I am sure the people who think he is an asshole-he would think the same thing about them.

I reserve the term "prick" for guys like Albert Belle who throws baseballs at fans and guys like Lawrence Phillips who beats the hell out of women and throws them down flights of stairs.

I've never understood the obsession with autograph collecting anyway. Maybe that's why I have so little sympathy for anyone who gets butthurt because their hero doesn't want to drop everything so they can sign a piece of paper for them. I thought autographs were sort of cool when I was ten years old, but now, not so much.
Autographs are kind of worthless- I think it is better to get a pic with them and actually have some kind of meaningful conversation- it is much more memorable.

off-topic, but I also shake hands and thank veterans for there service if they're wearing a Vietnam hat, or Navy hat etc. Very memorable.


I do the same if I meet a 'famous' person.
I agree - much more memorable.

I'll never bother a celebrity to ask for a photograph or an autograph. That's a policy I picked up at a young age from my grandpa. A long time ago I was staying with my grandparents out in Leawood and my grandpa took me to the video store. We pulled up and parked, and right next to us we see Harvey Williams get out of his car. I was like "Let's go say hello!" and my grandpa was like "No just leave him be.". I didn't understand why until 10 seconds later, about 10 people surrounded him and started asking for autographs and shit. Who would wanna be one of those people?

I met Joan Jett at a hotel we were staying at for a friends wedding; we were just hanging around the lobby waiting for the car to be pulled around.. usually when I see someone that looks like a celebrity (though I know they aren't), I'll sarcastically say to my wife "hey look, it's [celebrity]" and it's usually good laugh.

I was literally in the middle of doing this, and I see her taking pictures with a few fans. Then I was like 'Hey look, it's Joan J.......holy shit, that IS Joan Jett". She's a tiny thing. I simply walked by her and said "I really love your music; keep doing what you're doing because the music today sucks". She laughed, and said "Thank you so much". Super nice.
The cool thing was, to me anyways, was she was dressed exactly like you think she'd be. Not Metallica being tough on stage, then shopping at Gucci. She was in black jeans; Chuck Taylors; a leather wrist band; jet black hair, and a black tank top.

I actually saw Brett be a stand up guy for kids in person. My wife teaches art. Probably ten years ago, on a Saturday, we took a bunch of kids -sixth and seventh graders- from Lexington, MO to the Nelson-Atkins Art Gallery. We saw a special exhibition (impressionists or something like that) and afterwards, took a whole school bus full of kids over to Winstead's just down the street for lunch.

When we got into Winstead's, the kids spot Brett over at a booth having lunch with his wife and his kids. None of the kids went over and bothered him, but they all were buzzing about him, and watching him. I'm sure he could feel the thirty pairs of eyes boring a hole in his head.

After his family had finished eating, my wife went over to his table and said "Excuse me, Mr. Brett. I'm Mrs. Blowfish and I teach all these kids. They're all big Royals fans and really like you. We're gonna load them up now on the bus to go back to Lexington. Would you have a minute to take a picture in front of our bus?

Brett said "Well, I have to pay for my lunch here, get the kids all lined up, and I'll come out and take a picture before we leave. "

My wife said "Sure...." and that's exactly what he did. He came out to the bus, the kids all crowded around him and they took the picture, which ended up in the Lexington Paper a few days later.

My wife sent him a nice thank you card and a Lexington Art Club T-Shirt, which I'm sure he used to wax his car.

But on that day, he was not a douche. He was a good guy.

Maybe it was past scotch time and Brett was feeling a little surly.
