Ever run into an athlete, celebrity or semi-celebrity? We all have our "claim to fame" stories to tell, and i thought i'd get the ball rolling with my own in relation to our Jacksonville Jaguars. Silly post, but what the hey, we live in an Age of Celebrity anyway!
Ran into a Jaguar whom enjoyed a very HEALTHY and productive season this past year, Mike Sims-Walker. Diddn't know it, but running back Chris Johnson of the Titans and Mike are very good friends and hang out all the time. If you ever been out clubbing in Orlando, then you've probaly heard of a spot called Tabu. Very cool club some nights. This particular night, Chris and Mike and their respective entourages pretty much took over the stage and joined the packed crowd in the party. The DJ took time out to introduce the two Orlando natives and inform those who diddn't already know of just who these guys were. CJ got the biggest response out the crowd, but like any true Jaguar fan, i went out my way to make sure i gave my favorite WR right now Mike Sims-Walker some 'dap' and a show of respect. Not a huge guy, not the least bit arrogant, but very cool. Seemed very humbled i knew about his brief history in the NFL, and how i congratulated him on having a breakout season after his previous injury struggles.
Oh yeah, the NFL's record breaking rusher Chris Johnson was cool too, but partying with a Jaguar is what i was more amped about. Go Jags!
