Anyone have any personal experiences? I'll be at his Samaritan's Feet charity in San Diego this Saturday and am afraid he might not be approachable (or too nervous to approach him).

Will he be offended if I ask for a photo with me and my wife? Will he strike up a conversation? Anyone with personal knowledge it will be appreciated.

He'll punch you in the face. :devil:

j/k

I've always heard he's nice, but as with any athlete/celeb, if they're with their family or whatever, leave them alone...

from what i've gathered you're better off if you have a kid.

don't know about charity events, though.

My wife and I are volunteering. We're meeting an hour in advance to go over the details of the event. If I can wash feet sitting next to him that would be cool.

there is no more humbling thing than that (unless you're talking bathing/cleaning/changing the diaper of an adult who can't take care of themselves). there's also no feeling like what you're going to experience. it just can't be put into words. it's awesome, though.

props to you for taking part in that. i wish more people would do things like that.

I would assume since this is a charity function and since you are a volunter he would be happy to meet and take a picture with you. If it was a situation where he was out to eat with his family or something, I would advise leaving him alone.

Plus he'll probably get a kick out of meeting a Panther fan out there in San Diego.

Smitty from all accounts seems to be very friendly to kids or families. I think he is hesistant of adult autograph seekers.

as always, common sense applies, Cam Newton is right in one thing.....sometimes it isn't a good time to bother or make requests. Mainly if he is having a family moment.
