Just had a Great Conversation with Jim Kelly

Recommended Posts

Fortunate enough to have had quite the seat partner on flight to NYC this morning. I told him 2 things football related.....1 thanks for the best sports memories of my life...2 his HOF speech left a lasting impression on me.

 

After i said 1, he said, yup.....we had a lot of fun in those days...with quite the smirk. 

 

He even offered his biz card to do some work with him. Thank goodness i changed my flight...there are no accidents!

Am so jealous right now. But glad you took full advantage of the opportunity to interact with him so positively!

Jim Kelly once invited me in his RV when I was 13 years old.  He was leaving the stadium, a whole crowd recognizes him and gathers around.  He's walking and signing autographs.  

 

He hands me back my card but the crowd is tight and the card gets knocked out....never found it.  

Jim's brother sees me upset, asked what happened, I told him...he walks in to talk to Jim.  RV door opens up, I'm invited in.


Jim walks up to me, takes my hat off my head, signs in, pats me on the back and I walk out the RV.

i have nothing against pop tarts.  i just think that if as an adult you're eating these, you could be in fatty territory.

I buy S'mores Pop Tarts for the pool.  Leave them in the foil pack, the sun cooks them like a toaster and you have delicious goodness at the pool.

Did you steal one of his bottles of booze or maybe an 8ball?

Very cool.  Did Jim offer any thoughts as to the direction the Bills are going in and his expectations for the team?

eating s'mores pop tarts in the heat by a pool sounds horrific.  it's like smoking cigarettes on a hot beach.

As someone who recently quit smoking, and is sitting in an office... smoking a cigarette on a hot beach sounds fantastic right now

STAY ON TOPIC, people.......(thanks for the laughs). 

 

Glad there was a public JK sighting and hope he's doing well. I'll be wearing his jersey while hosting trivia in downtown Buffalo this coming Saturday.

Probably didn’t say thank you for something. Depending how long ago it was he used to make kids get a leaf from a tree pretty far away

Must have been a great experience...especially since you didn't suspect it.

They always happen in 3's.  Drugs, alcohol and Pop-Tarts.  Now your night is complete.
