As I was coming back from Arkansas, I stopped at the Valero off of 121 and Main Street there in The Colony. When I got done putting fuel in my car, I noticed this black man about 6'4'' on the other side of the pump clad in black Nike attire with black Nike flip flops. He looked familiar. I peered around the other side of the pump and he looked at me while on his cell phone and said, "Can I help you?" "Oh, hey, Mr. Gurode." That was it. He said hello back. I was tired. He was on the phone. I didn't feel like cavorting and pestering him about what he's been up to or Costa or why he's in the Metroplex. Ex-football players are people too.
