Q: What has been one in every of your strangest or funniest fan encounters?
A: I had one on the Denver airport that was nice. I used to be strolling out of a airplane and the girl stored on taking a look at me and he or she walked over to me and he or she goes, “You are the tennis coach from East Excessive Faculty, aren’t you?” And I wanted I had had the temerity to say, “Sure, I’m.
