    Thought I'd put a different spin on these sort of things.

    2011 or 2012, saw former Demons player Jordan Gysberts and his GF at Eastland.

    Saw Paul Puopolo at Stud Park Shopping Centre last year.

    Your turn now guys.

    Saw Josh Fraser at Chadstone. We parked next to each other and simultaneously opened doors and smashed them into each other. He came off 2nd best. Wasn't a happy camper but I was

    Pretty much all boring.

    I saw Danny Frawley one time in a car park. He walked past and looked at me strangely, I was in the process of tying up a makeshift belt of hay band... I had forgotten a belt.

    Continuing the car theme, Luke ball drove past me in a car once.. that was intense.

    Also saw James Hird once in the main street of my hometown. I wasn't even sure it was him. Seemed to short. But it was him.

    I saw two cars pull out outside a school. Some NM players got out, went into the school and voted.

    Then they got into the cars and drove away.

    They did not buy sausages.

    I squirted sauce all over Peter Knights pants at a Waverley park Ansett cup game in the mid 90's.

    I dropped a large cup of coke on Dustin Fletcher at a game in 1994.

    Once saw Leuenberger, Ash Mcgrath and a few other who I can't remember at the Normanby Hotel. They had lost that day but I said something like "Good game today boys" anyway. Leuey said thanks.

    Saw Daniel Merrett sitting on the ground by himself at Bulimba eating a pizza many years ago.

    Saw Harris Andrews walking along the footpath at Bulimba last year. Pointed him out to the chick I was with who didn't seem at all interested.

    Thought I saw Mitch Johnson on the beach up the coast yesterday. When I got closer I realised it wasn't him.

    Brushed past Brendon Goddard at Chaddy once, not long after he joined Essendon. Apart from noting that his hair looked much redder up close, the encounter was fairly uneventful.

    I saw Joel Selwood and one of his brothers (I think Scott, or maybe the older one) at the Mcdonalds on Ryrie St. in Geelong, it was during the off-season. I wanted to say hi but I was too shy so just acted like I didn't recognise him. Pretty exciting times. I think it was 2013.

    I saw Travis Boak walking to his car at Alberton this year, said g'day.

    Was on a flight back with the Freo team after a game in Adelaide the night before, I fell asleep but my mate played angry birds with Brett Kirk.

    I stood next to Alwyn Davey at the Coles in Moonee Ponds bakery section. I grabbed a rustic baguette and I think he got a sour dough vienna.

    I saw Dustin Fletcher at the Coles in Moonee Ponds bakery section. I grabbed a packet of cheese and bacon rolls and I think he got a white loaf toast sliced.

    I stood behind Matty Lappin at the checkout at the Safeway in Carnegie. I couldn't see what he was purchasing but he didn't say thanks to the checkout chick, or if he did he said it quietly and I didn't hear it.

    Was punting my dole money at Crown in the mid-90's, middle of the afternoon, when Wayne Carey sits down at the end of the blackjack table. Lays down $1000, loses it. Pulls out another thou, loses it. Pulls out another thou, loses it. Didn't bat an eyelid, then he got up and left.

    The end.

    Not a player, but walked past Anthony Hudson at the airport once.

    A week later I was bragging to a mate about my brush with fame. Showed him some pics from the day.

    It wasn't Hudson I'd seen. It was Steven King.

    Back in late nighties I sat behind a young SOS and Jo Bailey during a movie.

    Her hair smelled nice.
