I was mowing this house today and I noticed that the house diagonally from were I was sold last week and the people moved in. I see the home owner out side, so I walk over and introduce myself and hand the guy my business card. We talked for a minunte and I shook his hand and walked away. I called the owner of the house I was cutting and told the him that I introduced myself to his neighbor. He says to me do you know who that was? I said no that is such and such from the New England Patriots. I ended up looking up his number and sure enough bingo that was the guy. I was dumb founded, no I will not say were I was or who the Patriots players name for his privacy.

It's called privacy, ever hear of it? Last thing I want is somebody knocking at my door all of the time beacuse they know I have some coin. I'm letting the guy live his lifewnormally, I'm sure he already has people bugging him and I'm not going to be one of them

theres a 99.99999999999999999% chance he'll never get on lawnsite, second its not like were all gonna run up to where he lives and knock his door down and tell him meathead told us where you lived.... like i said before, why start a thread if youre not gonna reveal the person. :dizzy:

I don't see a problem with telling us who he is. There are guys that talk about doing work for celebrities or professional athletes on this site all the time. They don't give out phone numbers or addresses. It is just something to talk about.

they cant do the phone book that fast. I think this is a little tall tale boys. There is no way he could have bought the house 1 week ago and already had his number in the phone book

Who cares if hes a pro foot ball player. All he does is play a game. Most pro sports players are not role models or anything that you would want your kids to look up too. Most are nothing more than a bunch of thugs. There are some exceptions though, but not all that many.
