    Anyone else worrying about what happened to Richie's second ice cream?

    Also cricket related, I once worked at a print company and this guy came to reception wanting a quote on some work. I instantly recognised him as former Lancs captain John Abrahams (about 5 yrs after his last game) and I think he was even more shocked when I said I recognised him. He didn't go ahead with the work. True story that. Dull, but true.

    First time flying to Florida, I saw Paul Merson in the bar at Manchester Airport. I know this doesn't count as seeing players in strange places but as he held up our plane for 30 minutes I though it apt to point out that he is an annoying, pissed-up knobhead.

    Also saw Terry Phelan in a Wacky Warehouse pub at Hunger Hill, Bolton in the early noughties. Not in the ball pit.

    Not exactly very strange however, I met David Silva in a Ryanair queue flying back to Manchester from Reus Airport. He was at the back of the queue and I'd been running for the flight thinking I'd missed it.

    Also saw Ian Rush on a Ryanair flight. Can't remember where we were flying back from though. It might have been Paris.

    Also saw Dean Windass in T3 last year.

    George Heslop from my hospital bed in 1971. His son was also having his tonsils out and was in the adjacent bed. He was my friend because he had stickle bricks.

    Did you shake his hand or just exchange glances

    Similar story here for me but with Robert Croft the cricketer. I wasnt shagging Robert Croft, obviously. We both ended up back in this house in Cardiff with student nurses

    He must have glanced. I could tell by the look of envy in his eyes.
