Talking to Steve Smith

36 posts in this topic

he does his best to be unapproachable to the general public. At a charity event, I'm sure he'll be much more open.

I think he would be pretty approachable if it would be at his charity event - not so much if he were out at a restaurant with his family.

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.

Aside from him being there, I know the event in itself will be a memory to keep. It will be hard washing a 5 year old's feet knowing I have kids of my own. So if I don't get the chance to talk to him it will still be a good day no matter what.

I also think there is a huge difference between introducing yourself to Steve Smith and talking to him.......and being a that guy seeking something from him as a fan (fanatic panther fan).

And btw.... his next charity event is in Charlotte the following Saturday.... PM me and I can try and connect you with the director who may or may not have room but worth a shot.

I think it is really hard to not be awestruck of someone you admired the last decade when they are standing in front of you. If i do talk to him, I will beg and plead that he plays until he turns 40.

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.

This. I saw him after the redskins game this year getting on the team bus and he took a picture and was very nice

pay more attention to the person beside you than the star beside you and i think he'll respect that a whole lot more.

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.

Good for you. I have a foot phobia, can't even touch my wife's feet. That's a good cause. Hopefully you get to chat with the greatest Panther ever.
