    Ronnie Coleman was cool and liked to talk.
    Troy Alves was one of the coolest I've met.
    David Henry talked to me for a while and gave some good diet advice.
    Milos Sarcev was kind of lame.
    Jay Cutler was cool, just kind of boring to talk to.

    Me and some friends offered Ronnie and Troy Alves to head out to a cheesesteak place on us at the SF Grand Prix a few years back (they were just there for PR), they agreed and then some PR lady stepped in and said they had to stay there for a few more hours. Sucks.

    I've met 100's of pro's. The one instance that sticks out in my mind is when I met Gunter. I was at an airport going to the Arnold and he was waiting on a plane as well. I had a muscle and fitness with him on the cover. I went up and said that I didn't want to bother him but would he please autograph my magazine. He asked me to sit down and we talked for a good 30 minutes. I thought that was pretty cool.
