- Was out at a buddy's bar the night before the Super bowl in New Orleans (used to live there) and stepped out for a smoke sometime in the early morning. Alex Smith was standing outside holding his young son. My buzzed self blurted out, "holy s**t, it's Alex Smith" without thinking. He made eye contact and had a look of "s**t, just trying to sightsee with my kid." I waited a minute and then shook his hand and said, "thank you for all you have done over the years. We wouldn't be here without you. Good luck wherever you end up starting next year."

- Went to school, had classes with and interviewed countless times everyone's favorite preseason QB, Nate Davis.

- Not a 49er but back when I lived in New Orleans and was a journalist I covered high school football for the Times-Picayune. Covered a few Isidore Newman games. It's not only the high school of the Mannings but when I covered them Odell Backham Jr was their star WR.

- I went to a MAC school and covered football for the newspaper. Interviewed Antonio Brown a few times while he was in college.

This is crazy!

Best part is I had gym class with him at BSU and was put on his team in ultimate frisbee. Caught a few TDs thrown from him.
Met Lynch, P Manning, Jeff Saturday and Goodell last year in Indy at St Elmo's steak house. Lynch bought our tables alcohol and there were 20 of us.

Those were all jobs in college/post college years haha. Sadly, I'm Indian (Punjabi) like a good handful on this board
So many of you guys have cool stories! I cannot believe most of you have met that many niners, that's awesome. It's funny when people say the best moments of their life is getting married or this or that, mine would probably be meeting some of these players 😂 that's why we are true fans
Merton Hanks at a Charity basketball game in Hawaii.

Bob St Clair at the AZ Empire tailgate in 2009.

Jesse Sapolu at same charity basketball game.

Vernon Davis at the Las Vegas Premium Outlets.

Roger Craig at a Superbowl party in Las Vegas

Charles Haley at the iheart music daytime village concert

Bubba Paris at a signing in San Francisco

I was also at the AZ Niner empire pre-game party at McFaddens when Joe and Jerry was there but didnt formally meet them.

Played against Kaep in HS so I guess you could count that although I had no idea who he was at the time. I probably hi fived him during the "Good Game" postgame part.

Thats about it for 49ers

Played black jack with Matt Schaub, met Tony Romo, John Elway and saw Alex Smith and a bunch of other guys at the Tahoe Celebrity golf tournament.
