There was only one store in Albuquerque that sold a decent selection of anything Seahawk related, so I saved up a bunch of money to buy some SOMETHING Seahawks. I walked in to the store and went around picking up Seahawks stuff. I had enough for a jersey, but wanted more than just one item. I found several T-shirts and a really cool sweatshirt and a couple hats, I even got a Seahawk helmet alarm clock. Well, when I went up to pay for all these things and there were two guys at the counter. One of them had his back to me and the other just looked at the items I had put on the counter and laughed. The one laughing started hitting the other guy on the arm and said "you gotta see this". The guy turned around and laughed too, the guy was Fredd Young.
I guess, prior to me walking in to the store, the two had had a conversation about how many Seahawks items were available in the store and how much Seahawks stuff the guy actually sold in Albuquerque of all places. The shop owner had told him that he sold a lot of Seahawk gear and that there weren't too many days when he didn't sell something Seahawks related. Fredd didn't believe it and had told his buddy that if anyone came in and bought anything with a Seahawk logo on it while he was in the store, that he would pay for it... My lucky day!!!
I had to pass a test that consisted of several questions about the team and about me knowing that he was going to be in the store prior to coming in that day... I passed. I think I named every starter on both sides of the ball and their positions. I even knew the answer to the "do you know who I am?" question.
Anyway, Fredd paid for all the Seahawk gear I had put up on that counter. I thought he was kidding when he said he'd pay for it, but sure enough, he paid.
I made it about 5 steps out the door and realized that I still had enough money to get the Seahawk jersey that I had my eye on and marched right back in and grabbed it. I took it to the counter and the two started laughing again. I left the store with all the Seahawks stuff I wanted, a #50 jersey, and a story about the guy who actually wore the #50 Seahawk jersey on the field.
