I don't drink beer and I don't ever plan on doing so, for I want to stay healthy.

In my case, it would be "what athlete would you like to have root beer with?"

Athlete-wise, I'd go with a bunch of old Sabres- Pat LaFontaine, Dave Andreychuk, Dale Hawerchuk, Phil Housley, and Dominik Hasek.

I knew there was something not quite right about you.

I would love to have a beer with Kenny Stabler, because it would probably turn into quite a party!

Given that you're a Reds/Redskins/Kentucky fan, I was thinking you'd say Joe
Gibbs, Theismann, any one of the key players on Cincy's Big Red Machine, Andre Woodson, or well-known UK hoopsters (Billups, Prince, Antoine Walker, Mashburn)

My customers have included the 1998, "Don't anybody look while I shove this guy out of my way" exacta of Michael Jordan and Bryon Russell, as well as Muhammed Ali, Mia Hamm, Pat Ewing, Doug Collins, John Calipari, Darrell Green, some guy who captained two winning entries in the Newport National Yacht competitions whose name you wouldn't recognize, another guy who was either the third or fourth seed in the 1970 Men's US Tennis Open whose name I don't even remember, and someone who surely enjoys putting such people on his human charm bracelet, Washington Redskins owner Dan Snyder.

I wouldn't pay a dime to have a beer with any of them. I'd rather have had a beer with Tim Russert.

Edit/Update: It just occurred to me that I used to service NBA first round draft pick and former Michael Jordan teammate Ennis Whatley's C-band dish, as well as the C-Band dish at Joe Theisman's restaurant, but I never saw Theisman and had nothing to talk to Whatley about: "Hey, what's it like to have a journeyman career after being a first round draft pick?"

I've had good times throwing down a few beers with Mike Ditka's high school football coach, who owned a bar where I serviced the juke box. He said he had a real good system for keeping discipline on the team. If someone was stepping out of line, he'd just say to Ditka, "That guy's stepping out of line" and then Ditka would beat the sh*t out of him.

One of the more interesting bar-room conversations I had was with the guy who was the UMass basketball forward who was a starter when Julius Erving was a freshman. He was attending some kind of ceremony at which UMass retired Erving's number. Back in their playing era, freshmen couldn't play varsity sports. He just said it was discouraging knowing that no matter what he did on the court that season, he knew he was going to sit on the bench the next year.

Rick Pitino was in town for that also. He, too, had been an Erving teammate, as had Mike Flanagan and Al Skinner. For a school that never wins anything, it is amazing how many professional athletes UMass has produced. Pitino left several messages on the business answering machine that a friend of mine and I shared, hounding him to meet him after the ceremony so they could "make the rounds" at all the downtown bars they both used to frequent two decades earlier, but I couldn't talk my friend into taking him up on the offer.

Current MLB players:

Lance Berkman--hilarious.
Pat Burrell--to see what he's really like.
Jeff Kent--to see if he's really a jerk.
Jerry Hairston, Jr.--love the way he plays.
Brian Giles--see L. Berkman.

Ask me again during football season....
