    i went down the street to the post office to mail something.
    Hopkins was standing on the corner.
    he looked like any body else expect he was signing autographs.

    some athletes you see, most you don't.
    Alan Iverson and his posse hang out at the tittty bar down the street between me and the PO.
    when my girl used to get her afro trimmed, she would see Dr J sitting in the next chair getting the same.
    i would see him in the underground record store getting them discount albums.

    now Barkley played in philly 5 or 6 years and i never saw him on the street one time.
    ditto McNabb.

    If I were mcnabb I would not give autographs either. The highest selling NFL Jersy is Terell Owens not D. Mcnabb and plus they booed him.

    you mean, the $100m contract wasn't enough to warm him up?
