A few years back when I was a sophomore at LSU I went to the Rec to play a pickup game of basketball. I went with one of my friends and didn't have much success in spotting an open court until the court with former LSU basketball players motioned for us to come over since a few of their guys wanted a breather.
Collis Temple III was on the other team and I hit six 3 pointers in a row and after every shot he's high fiving me and saying "He's the rainman...this guy is unbelievable". Needless to say it was pretty sweet coming from a former LSU basketball player.
Another good one was when I was working at an on campus desk job and Russell Shepard was attending a recruiting event. He wanted a break so he came into the lobby and walked up to me and introduced himself by saying "Hey man, I'm Russell" (like I didn't know who he was) and we shot the breeze for awhile. Both encounters were pretty sweet.
My girlfriend was driving by the Rec one afternoon and at the stop before the Phi Mu house, Reuben Randle is on a scooter and appears to continue across as our car is about to go through. He stops, motions for us to go and smiles as we go through. Yes, I actually witnessed that.
The last one (and a funny one at that) was when I was leaving the Union after Late Night at LSU. All of a sudden I hear a big Cadillac come rolling blasting music by the Greek Amphitheater and as it drives by my group of friends DByrd looks out the passenger window and just nods his head to the beat of the music. Pretty funny sight to say the least!
