    Nice man Pele.
    I was at the Admirals Club two weeks ago preparing to travel back to the States on a 777 and Pele stands next to me chatting with a friend. I look at him and say Pele? He smiles and reaches out to shake hands. “Sou eu.” Wonderful.

    Elvis met the Pope (not sure when or where), but the Pope did have a camera (and it wasn’t stolen later).
    Elvis wanted to be blessed, but the Pope told him that first, it would be necessary to take up new habits.

    I was waiting at Guarulhos for a flight (a delayed one, and no Admirals Club luxury). I saw a lot of people taking photos with this chap and asked “Quem √© ele”. Turns out it was the then captain, L√∫cio… Oversight on my part to not recognise him, but I expected a Centre Half to be taller. oh well

    I got one up on this thread.
    I am working my way through College moonlighting a Hackney. So this is a Sunny Saturday Summer.
    The place: Four Seasons Hotel , Boylston St in Boston accross the Public Gardens.
    The Bell Captain flags me over and I pull my rig onto the Port Cochiere.
    So I am loading up luggage into the trunk for two suits headed up to Logan and who do I spot on leaning on the walls outside the Hotel? Tony Bennett , that’s right. Cool cat Tony Bennett, with his blue eyes, pushing 70’s, with an adorable blonde, max 30 yo , clinging to his neck, all dovey, dolled up, showering this Paesan with pecking kisses on his face.
    I tried not to look hard, but I can resist peeking in. Which makes him a bit uncomfortable. So the suits arrive , bailing me out. On the way over I quipped: ” this dude has an adoring daughter , don’t ya think so? “
    They cracked at it. ” no dude , that is his wife “. We all giggle at it. Funny as heck.
