Ok, I have met George W. Bush.
I met him when he was still Governor of Texas. I was about 9 and my dad took me and my sister to our state capitol. We were eating lunch and some
older guy came up and asked if he would like to meet him.
We said yes, and he walked my dad, my sister and I through all these halls through some areas that are restricted to the public and we went straight
into his office.
Essentially what happened was, he was signing some education bill and there was press there and he wanted a couple of kids in the office for that
reason. So he had some guy go look for some kids and we are the ones he found.
After he signed the bill and chased the press out of his office he talked to us for a bit. I was excited to hear that he had heard of my home town,
(Allen Texas at the time) he explained, it was a part of his job to know all of his states cities.
he walked us out and guided us to this elevator, he got on with us and walked us to to some guard, talking and joking with us the whole way. the guard
walked us back to the cafeteria where we were found orignally.
Now what I am about to say is considered blasphemy aroun here on ATS but he was actually a really nice guy! Friendly and good with kids. His politics
are god awful though....
EDIT: Oh I almost forgot, I met Deion Sanders (Dallas Cowboys) at the gas station down the street from me around Christmas time. During Christmas he
does a thing locally on the news called "Sanders Claus" where he helps people out who are struggling or he rewards people for their actions etc...
He had just finished shooting a scene for the news and I didnt recognize him at first.
ha, he had the store clerk search the store for a Mr.Goodbar. As I watched deion and the clerk scour the store for a Mr.goodbar I guess he realized I
was watching and he said, "I gotta have my mr.goodbar" trying to be funny.
He drove off in a big old black astrovan. I have driven past his house before. It is HUGE. He has a whole regulation football field in his back
yard!Driving past it you can just see one of the field goal posts.
