Went to my local public golf course Auburn Hills as a single player during the middle of the week. There was a guy and his nephew who were paying in front of me. I asked if he wanted to play together as I was a single. He said sure so we joined up on the first tee where he proceeded to tee it up from the black tee markers(the tips). I noticed he was a huge guy with tree trunks for thighs and huge arms. I am a 12 handicap but never play the black tees so I teed mine up from the blue tees and off we went(his nephew was not playing) he was a pretty good golfer who hit it a long ways. We were having a good casual time and ribbing each other over putts left short and so on as golfers love to do. We got to the sixth hole and a group of four let us play through. After I hit my tee shot from the blues as I am heading back to my cart one of the guys in the foursome asked who the guy was I was playing with. I said I met him in the pro shop and all I know is his name is Barry. The guy looks at me like I am crazy and said that was Barry Sanders I was playing with. Well that made since as he has family here in Wichita. I chose not to say anything to Barry after I was told this as we were genuinely having a good time together. When we finished the 9 th hole he told me he wasn't going to play the back nine. I shook his hand and told him I enjoyed playing with him. I then asked so you are Barry Sanders aren't you? He cracked a big smile and said yes he was. I wanted to ask him to sign my scorecard but he was so cool to play with that I didn't want to ruin it so I just shook his hand again and told him it was a pleasure to meet him. Class act all the way around. Obviously I don't watch a lot of football.
