Champs Sports Event

21 Jun

Eileen and I had a great time at a Champs Sports fundraiser in Lakewood Ranch tonight. I got to rub elbows with many famous athletes. I have included something of a photo gallery below for your enjoyment.


1) Chris Paul of the New Orleans Hornets                

2) George “Ice Man” Gervin of the San Antonio Spurs 

3) Hall of Fame Pitcher Goose Gossage                   

4) The great Sam Jones of the Boston Celtics

5) Light Heavyweight Champ Antonio Tarver

Eileen also tried to capture an image of me and 7′ 2″ Artis Gilmore living it up, but there was obviously too much disparity in our heights and the camera flash couldn’t quite reach Artis’ melon. Eileen still hasn’t stopped laughing. For those of you who don’t remember what Gilmore looks like, I have included some vintage ABA shots from the 70’s when Gilmore starred for the Kentucky Colonels. 


Guess which one is not Artis?
