I got to meet The Bird one time. He was gracious and humble. When I thanked him for coming out and signing autographs he said "thank you for caring". He will always be my all-time favorite Tiger.

Bird was an absolute gem. I saw him at his last autograph appearance. I remember being stunned when I found out he had died less than two months later. Just a very sad end for a great guy- someone today's athletes could learn alot from.

Still miss The Bird. Every now and then I'll think of him and recall the way he died and it makes me sad. The one time he needed just one person near, there was no there. Damnit all. :cry:
