Dee Brown speaks

leaning against the side of the UI pool today

FK: Dee Brown, right?
DB: Yeah man, how you doing?
FK: Cool, alright.
DB: Man, I couldn't make it the whole way down, like this (motions the front crawl), if I tried. My arms give out.
FK: Are you injured these days?
DB: Yeah, my foot's still broke.
FK: Looking forward to the season? (said just as he was starting to swim away)
DB: (stops mid-stroke) Sorry, what?
FK: Oh, it's alright. Go ahead.
DB: No, you talking about the season? What'd you say?
FK: I just asked if you were looking forward to it.
DB: Yeah, we'll be decent.
FK: Good squad this year?
DB: Yeah, we'll either be real real good, or we'll be decent.
FK: Cool, have a good one bla bla bla

I know, these aren't the most profound of conversations, but for some reason I keep running into these small-scale famous people.

I was swimming today (well, leaning up against the wall anyway), and I look up and realize that Dee Brown is leaning against the wall right next to me.

Might as well record what was said....

you should also post david pruitt's conversation with cory bradford from 2001 . . .

DP: "Hey are you cory bradford?"
CB: "No, Im Jarrence Howard. That guy over there is cory bradford."
DP: "No, Im pretty sure you're cory bradford. I follow you guys closer than you would be comfortable with."
CB: "Go tell Cory that." [laughs]
DP: "Goddamnit."

I think it was more like this:

DP: Hey, Cory Bradford, right? How's the team looking this year?

CB: No, that's Cory Bradford [pointing to Blandon Ferguson]

DP: I'm not an idiot, I know who you guys are.

CB: Yeah, you're right. I'm Cory, but this guy over here [again, pointing to Blandon Ferguson] is going to be the shit this year. [which proved to be a ridiculously false statement].

I suppose I should add another classic interaction.

Matt Wilday sees Nick Smith sitting at the end of the bar at Kam's, smoking a cigarette.

MW: How's the asthma?
NS: Fuck off.

This is really a super blog. I can't believe that you guys know all of these famous people. I'm from Johnson City, Tennessee, and I love the Illini too!! I can't believe Dee Brown can't swim!! Keep it up Burgess!!
