I met him for the 1st time at the OSU-LSU National Title game and sat right next to him at it. Before the game started, I got my pic taken with him and he seemed like a nice guy. I had just returned from a tour in Iraq a few weeks prior and spent 5 straight years overseas before that, so i wasnt really aware who any of these super fans were. But as the game went on, he was just being plain rude to people who were requesting his pic. He even came at me after we went up 10-0 and i was yelling "SEC Speed" to the nearby LSU fans...telling me to keep my mouth shut. Im sorry, but I paid $800 for my ticket and if I choose to talk a lil trash to the opposing fans whom were doing it as well, im allowed to and dont need his permission/approval. Funny thing about that is ive sat near him many times since then and listened to him talk trash as well to opponents and with a lot more vulgar content.
At the 2008 Mich game, I made a sign in reference to Mich losing to Toledo and their horrible record that year. I walked around with it outside the stadium before the game and even snuck it in to the stadium during the game. I got interviewed on TV and even by a radio reporter, not to mention a ton of people whom requested their pic taken with it. But I never got mad or denied anybody's request nor did I ask them to either. I embraced it, especially since I knew prior the attention it would receive. I held it up a few times during the game, but to make fun of Mich, not to get on TV. There was a guy next to me who said the camera man wanted me to hold it up in front of him (he had to show me where he was cause I wasnt paying attention to where they were at during the game). But I did get put on websites and in magazines for that sign, but I dont pass out autograph pics of myself to people especially to ones whom dont ask for it. The funniest thing about that sign i made that game was when we were walking back to our cars afterwards and Buck I Guy came up to me, grabbed my sign and autographed it like he was famous.
