Met up with some good friends who moved out of State and came into town today...We stopped into Vino at the Landing in Renton. I immediately recognized Robbie from across the room. I wasn't going to be "that fan" and walk up to him and butt into his conversation with his friend so I figured if he was to walk by me I might extend a hand. Sure enough, right before we were getting ready to leave, he got up to head to the head...Walked right towards me...He saw the Seahawks cap I was wearing and I could perceive the hint of a smirk when I extended my hand and simply said, "Hey Robbie, nice to see you!" As usual, he was extremely pleasant. There's no doubt if I asked him what he thought of the Seahawks/Wilson/et al, he would have taken the time to engage me for a minute. (I've met him before and chatted with him a good 10 minutes or so coming out of a game once)...I didn't want to keep him. My friend shook his hand, introduced himself as well.
There's a time and place to engage a former favorite Seahawks player but when the man has to go, the man has to go!
