i got to meet…

this guy:

gw

i tweeted about it. i knew it was bound to happen one of these days, he’s a big aggie fan and his presidential library here as well.

we had a basketball game, and i was coming out of our production office off the main hallway of the arena. first i saw a little white haired lady pass by, then i turned and saw george and his secret service detail. i figured i would say hi and he would keep walking by. but he stopped, stuck out his hand and said hello. i said ‘hi how are you’ and he asked me ‘whats going on in there.’ i started to say “just a little magic” but then thought otherwise. so i froze. i dont remember what came out of my mouth. he kept going, and then his secret service detail asked me the names of the coaches, because ‘mr. president wants to know.’ i told them, and they walked away. i stood there. in disbelief.

so sorry. i have no proof. only a story. and this awesome picture from wikipedia.

cheers

    You, my friend, are very lucky. I am 21 years old and the only celebrity I have ever met is one of the characters from Friday Night Lights. You have met George H. Bush and Uncle Rico. Like I said, lucky.

    @jenna- i’ve met several “influential” people, but they would not necessarily be referred to as a celebrity.

    i believe you have met 2 celebrities however. the friday night lights guy AND nic burleson. duh.

    ps-as i recall you did have a chance to meet uncle rico with me.
