‘On The Road With Psugator02′ – Dan Marino – June 11, 2011
Fairmont Turnberry Isle
Friday, June 10
It’s not often you meet your favorite football player in a 1-on-1 situation and he’s everything you hoped he would be. It was a quick interaction, but Dan Marino, former Dolphins’ quarterback, didn’t let me down. It helped that I looked like I was a tournament volunteer. It helped even more that I told a great story about meeting Dan when I was 12 or 13. He had just released a paperback book about his rookie season and was going to be signing it about five minutes from my house. I still have the book. I asked Dan if he remembered the event. “That was 27 f*ckin years ago, dude,” Dan said. I mumbled something else, and Dan said, “I still look good but you look old, bro.” He then high-fived me and signed my two Dolphins’ minis. If I had more time to prepare I would have brought the camera for the picwith, but I really wasn’t expecting him to be there.
