What is an interesting factoid about yourself? I was once offered a ride home from Walter Payton. My car was being repaired and it was raining out, and Walter Payton pulled over and asked me if I wanted a ride. This was in Hoffman Estates. I was right across the street from where I was going so I did not accept the ride, but that was my brush with a famous person.
