I met Mike Tyson when I set up a few tables in Chantilly Va. in October 2011. When I got to the front of the line for him to sign my baseball, I told him
"Your the best heavyweight champ ever, Mr Tyson", as I handed him my ball
"Call me Mike, please"
"O.K, your the best, Mike"
"Thanks, whats your name?"
"What am I writing under here, Johnny?"..
"Can you write I love N.Y under your name, Mike?".
He said sure and laughed.
"Do you love New York, Mike?"
"Not on Tax day Johnny"
I thought that was pretty cool...and he was more than cordial.
