I envy you guys. The closest I got was sharing a pool in the Bahamas with some dipshit PC fan who ragged on Jackson Heights.

quick story. We were at some beach bar on Easter Island and the New Zealand older guys are with this young Chilean couple spouting off about how much they know of the world and then start knocking Chile and South America. Then one guy says he doesn’t like The US and the other says America has no soul. I almost flipped the hell out on them. They leave one of the loud mouths was so drunk he left his passport on the table. Was seriously debating throwing it in the trash but we gave it to the manager instead. We are driving back to the main town of Hanga Roa about 20 minutes away and we are stopping to drop another couple off at their lodge in the town center when Nathalie sees the 2 guys eating dinner outside at a restaurant. I jump out of the van and tell them “ next time you think America has no soul or you don’t like the US remember it was 2 Americans who were sitting next to you listening to your entire bs and got out of a van when they saw you to tell you you left your passport at the beach bar and gave your passport to the manager.” The funny thing is the next night we walk into a restaurant that has live music and there they are again. They come over to us telling us how sorry they were and apologized profusely then ended up paying for our whole bill. :)

I stayed at a resort once and Ralph Dalton (GTown Center who backs up Patrick Ewing) and his family were in the condo next door. Of course the first time I ran into him, I was wearing a St. John’s T-Shirt.

Actually was a nice guy.

About 15 years ago I take my wife and son to the Grand Wailea in Hawaii for our wedding anniversary. My wife goes for a work out in one of my SJU shirts. Comes back to the room (that’s right I was to lazy and watching my son at least that’s my story) and tells me she ran into some big ex basketball player who recognized the SJU shirt. She didn’t know who the guy was but she “thinks” he is famous. Said he was a big dude.He was lifting weights and was nice to her. Later on I head down to the pool. Pool has a water elevator. Unbelievable. But I digress. My son is playing with these two little kids. After awhile a lady comes over and asks if it’s ok if my son could join the kids for some snacks. She said she watches the kids for their parents. She points to a roped off private cabana area. Sure why not. Let him experience of the good life.

My son comes back (at the time he’s 8 or 9). Curious I ask him who the kids parents were. He says I don’t know but their mom’s name is Cookie. She was really nice They said their dad played basketball. He was their too. He was nice too my son said. I saw the lady who was watching the kids and I ask who is their father. Oh, it’s Magic Johnson. My son is too young to care less. He has two new friends about his age.
So my wife meets Magic. My son hangs out with Magic and his family in a private cabana and I get to see and meet...no one.
