Was I in Traffic School With That Guy


Guy comes up to me in Tampa and says, "Hey, I haven't seen you since [former Colorado Buffs head coach] Eddie Crowder's funeral!" And I said, "I wasn't at Eddie Crowder's funeral." Turns out he had the wrong guy. So he apologizes and introduces himself and I thought I knew who he was, so I asked, "So, have you kept in touch with the Patriots since you left?" And he says, "I was never with the Patriots!" Turns out I had the wrong guy. And so we both sort of slunk away from each other, happy to have the whole thing over with.
