I work as an Assistant Principal at a local high school. A while back I posted about talking to former World Lightheavy Weight Champ, Antonio Tarver at one of our basketball games. Tonight I was working the game as our girls basketball team played for the district title. Kevin Nash [movie actor and professional wrestler] came to watch. Nash is friends of the family of one of the players.
What was cool was that many people recognized him, but no one went over for autographs or to talk to him. Kevin Nash wasn’t there for that and people seemed to realize it. A group of students did walk by to get a closer look, but even they didn’t bug him. Too bad that most celebrities aren’t given the same respect when they are trying to enjoy some time away from the limelight.
Unfortunately our girls lost. The good news is that coming in 2nd place in the district moves us into the regional tournament with a chance to still go to state. If we make it, maybe Kevin Nash will make a return visit.
