Charles Barkley - "A knock out " - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania
(Omaha, NE, USA)
My encounter with Charles Barkley in Philadelphia, Pa. I was traveling back and forth from Omaha, Ne., to Philadelphia, Pa., and I was on one of my trips back to Omaha to visit my family for a week. I was coming down one of the airport terminals when a stranger knocked in to me and literally knocked me off my feet! The stranger kept on going....but, all of a sudden this arm reached down and a really nice voice said, "Are you okey lady? Here...let me help ya up". When I looked up, I recognised who was standing above me....but couldn't believe it....yup...Charles Barkley!!! I studdered when I said, "Thank you" and before ya knew it...he was gone! I hurried over and called my brother....who was one of his favorite fans. When asked if I got is autograph...I couldn't bring myself to ask him for that. He was in a hurry..I just didn't have the heart to ask him for it. Needless to say my brother didn't talk to me for a while, but I felt better for not asking a guy who took the time to help me up off the floor for his autograph!
