    I was working at Gillette today. I was there from 6am-2pm while they were tearing the stuff down from last nights Billy Joel/Elton John concert, and then was there until 8:30pm for the Revolution game

    So this morning, I'm in the tunnel under the stadium making sure everybody has wristbands and stuff. While I was standing there, I was looking down the tunnel and I see someone lumbering in my direction. Mind you I had 2 hours of sleep and no coffee, so I wasn't sure at first, but it was big ole Vince Wilfork. He walked by and said "Good Morning."

    I felt like I was a kid again and the hottest girl in school said hi to me. I smiled and nodded and mumbled something that may or may not have sounded like a good morning. That made being there for 14 hours TOTALLY worth it! And today was only my first day working there. :D

    That's cool but, I think I can one up it. I got to touch the Lombardi trophy as Vince held it up in front of me. :D

    I ran into Vince at a local WalMart about 3 months ago in the side garden/plants/trees/landscaping stuff. I just said "Hey Vince- how are you?" and he replied. Good, buddy- thanks" and about 30 seconds later he walked away. It was pretty cool. :D

    It took him 30 seconds to get away from you? I though he had a quick first step...:p

    :) Yes, but the forklift was a write-off.

    Funny that so many of us have run into Vince. He does seems like a really nice guy.

    Not exactly... it took him less than 2 seconds to run me over, but it took 28 to back up and then finish the job.

    Congrats on meeting Big Vince. Did you enjoy the Revs game? Much needed win if you ask me especially after losing the last several games.

    It was pretty cool, at least the little bit I saw. They put me down on the field. I was at the south endzone watching section 123-124.

    I kept sneaking peeks at the jumbotron. I've never watched soccer before though.
