So a lady friend of mine and I are at the Pacers game tonight, and she had to take a quick call from work. I was checking Twitter, and saw that Jerraud Powers was at the game. I tweeted him, asked if we could say hi, and he tweeted back sure.
Well, we didn't know where he was or what he was wearing or anything, so we're looking around Conseco trying to figure out who he is. We go up to this one guy, ask if he's Jerraud Powers, and he's like, "Uh, no." So, dejected, we go back to our seats. We start looking around the arena, and basically start stalking random people.
Anyway, we see this one guy get up. He's got a Yankees cap on, pulled low, and is walking out. We figure, might as well try, so we go outside and see him in the hall. I go, "Excuse me, are you Jerraud Powers?" and he goes "Ha, yeah, you Monkey?" We laugh, introduce ourselves, shake hands, and make some small talk. He signed some programs for my date and I. Said that because he usually hangs out with Brackett and Bethea, most people don't even notice him. He just got braces, so I gave him a little orthodontic advice, and wished him a good night.
Basically, he was cool as hell about the whole thing. Got a good laugh, a great story, and an autograph out of it.
