Guess who I carried on my plane today?

???










Hint one:

A Super Bowl winning Quarterback.












Hint two:


Flight from Cincinnati - Cleveland













If you guessed --------







Trent Dilfer


YOU WIN!!!!!


I said to him as he was trying to exit unnoticed, "See ya Trent." To which he looked up and said, "Bye." It was funny watching him trying really hard not to be noticed.

He officially passes Michael Chang as most famous athlete that I have carried.


That is all.

He seemed to do a pretty good job of not being noticed on the field in Cleveland this year too.

Sorry. I couldn't help myself... I actually like Dilfer too!

Trent got a little whiny when they decided to start Charlie Frye over him.

Personally, I'd be more excited about carrying Michael Chang, he always seemed like a good guy.

They only semi-famous person I ever even flew "with" (knowingly, I guess) was Vlade Divac. Charlotte to LA. Betcha couldn't figure that route out, huh?

Aaron Neville and Morris Day (different flights) are my two most famous flight companions.

I guess it depends on who you ask. I have no idea who Michael Chang is. I'm not sure I've even heard his name before reading it in this thread.

Dola -- you've all got me beat. AFAIK, the most famous person I've ever flown with was Sean Willingham ... and no, he's not related to Tyrone.

I flew from Milan to DC with Howie Long a couple of years ago. This was about 6 months after 9/11, so it was reassuring to have a Hall of Fame defensive lineman sitting in 1C...

Let's see... I flew from Atlanta to Augusta, GA with Ray Knight (Nancy Lopez picked him up at airport and I met both), from Cincinnati to Newark with Chris Collinsworth, from Las Vegas to Cincinnati with the UC basketball team, from New Orleans to Houston with the Tulane basketball team (when they were good), and finally from La Guardia to Atlanta with Bernadette Peters (she fell into me on the train while switching terminals.... smoking hot... can't believe she's as old as is reported). I fly a lot...

I was on a flight with Randy Pfund out of OKC a few years back. I noticed him becuase of the giant NBA Championship ring on his finger, but didn't realize who it was until his ticket was run through the scanner just before mine and his last name popped up. IIRC, he was GM of the Heat at the time, but he was flying coach just a few rows ahead of me.

I also met Jim Harrick at the airport in Pittsburgh.

I flew to Tampa a few years ago for the NHL All-Star game and Jaromir Jagr and Martin Straka got on the plane when we stopped in Pittsburgh. Jagr sat behind me. I was wearing a Sens jersey, and Straka (a former Senator) gave me a really funny look.

A year or so later, my wife and I flew to Scranton PA and changed planes in Philadelphia. Saw Franco Harris waiting in the terminal for his flight to State College.

so, I guess the moral of the story is change planes in Pennsylvania.

I see Trent Dilfer around town quite a bit. Numerous baseball games...his seats are just a few rows behind mine, and actually at the Theatre once with his wife.

I've always felt he was a class act, and by most all accounts he has the respect of everyone in the locker room.

Oh I once flew with Boris Becker, Roger Craig damn near knocked me down once in the San Francisco Airport. We bumped shoulders heading opposite directions..and damn he was solid.

Funny thing was that he was my QB in eNFL this season, and lead the Bills to the playoffs again, despite leading the league in INT's. I wanted to say something about it to him.

3 or 4 years ago, I was out of school for a while and got a sweet gig doing "security" for the suite level at the Lowes Motor Speedway during the races. Basically, we just stood at the stairwell occassionally. Anyway, I went to take a piss, and on the way back I see this tall, wide dude standing outside of the (I think) Coca Cola box. I get closer and I'm thinking "dang, that guy looks just like Troy Aikman." He's by himself, looks like he's waiting for someone else to come out. When I walk by him I kind of nod and say hey, he nods back. Because my brain wasn't at all on the lookout for any sort of celebrity (I live 20 minutes from there, and probably wouldn't recognize the nascar famous) it wasn't until the second that I passed him that my brain finally realized that it was, in fact, Troy Aikman.

I saw Jerry Rice at Q-Zar (laser tag place that used to be the bay area) on my 12th or 13th birthday. I went to ask him for an autograph, but I guess I got a little starstruck and ended up holding up a pen and paper in stunned silence as he walked by.

Oh! I forgot that one time I had lunch with Merton Hanks back during his heyday. This was when Jim Druckenmiller was playing QB for the Niners, and I got him to admit that Druckenmiller sucked
