...so I was on an early morning flight to Dallas the other day. As I walk tired past First Class (on the way to my seat in 30C in the back of the plane in that special place by the engine), I noticed coach Don Nelson of the Golden State Warriors reading the Sports section (and he was wearing the same outfit as in this pic). Ironically I almost went to that game against the Knicks the night before.
Then in baggage claim, I saw him chowing down on some airport fast food (no I wasn't stocking him). I thought about going over and asking him how the game went the night before, but naw... And then, I was in the Dallas W Hotel for a meeting in the bar, and I saw his greatness one more time! This time I had to ask how the game went. He told me he was coaching the Warriors now, as if I didn't know. I told him I was a Bay Area guy and he said, "Oh, great! We won by 2 points, great game!" Then he took his booze on the rocks and went about his meeting.
