    I had the absolute pleasure of sitting across the aisle from Terry Bradshaw today. What a genuinely nice man! Down to Earth, friendly, and just an all around nice guy! Really made my day!

    Sorry, I have to ask the same question ... MP is not just about US "football" fans ... to me, football is still about using a foot most of the time ....

    That was my first thought. Figured it was just a well-known MPer, etc..

    As a Pittsburgh Steelers can this is awesome. As a fox football fan this is doubly awesome.

    I sat next to Terry from DFW to LAX a few years back. He was on his way to do the FOX NFL game day show. I agree he was delightful. He us a huge guy though. His shoulders are about 4 feet across.

    Very cool. Thanks for sharing the pic. He always seems like a very warm and genuine guy publicly, so it's nice to see that it is who he really is.

    I was on a National (remember them?) flight once from DFW to LAS. They had the most leg room in F of any airline I flew at the time, and certainly more than any today. I was wondering how tall the guy in front of me must be to be resting his foot on top of the seat in front of him!

    My "football star flight" turned out to be Joe Theismann. I had my dad with me, who had retired as the sports editor for the Dallas Times Herald (remember them?) a few years prior, so it couldn't have happened on a more perfect flight. Theismann had done the Thursday night season opener at Texas stadium the night before. He and my dad had a pleasant conversation as we deplaned in LAS.

    My dad enjoyed that it happened, but he had met so many professional athletes in his career that it wasn't something that would be remembered forever by him. I'm not one to be particularly starstruck, but the novelty of it was interesting and memorable. I like meeting interesting people no matter their career path.

    I suspect that many, if not most of us here are well known among those in our chosen profoessions. I've read a lot of wisdom on these pages (carefully filtered!), and learned a lot about how to travel with the most benefits and fewest inconveniences, so I consider you all to be stars!
