Small world csb. My gf and I were in Downtown Chicago Last Summer waiting in line at a Starbucks. His sister noticed my LSU shirt and hat and said "my brother plays basketball for LSU. After we all ordered, she introduced us to him, waiting outside. Seems like a very level-headed and nice young man. Hope it was just some stupid decision to indulge in something illegal(Not selling or caught up in that lifestyle).
