Walking around Tar Heel Town, I went right past the soon-to-be-former Athletic Director having his lunch sitting on the steps of one of the campus buildings. I immediately wished I'd have stopped and said hello, but he was eating...and I try mind my manners to the point of not being a bother to someone mid-meal.
I did hustle my way back around THT and tell my friend about who I'd just seen. Really? No way.
Yeah, really...and way.
But, I regretted not slipping back by and manufacturing a way to shake his hand.
Later, though, I would get my wish when my friend had to take the youngun to the little fellers room. I was standing in the shade just inside Kenan Stadium. And, right by me walks Mr. Baddour.
"Mr. Baddour," I say, "thanks for all you've done for this University."
He actually thanked ME for asking him for the photo-op! Remarkable.
