But about 30 years ago (that would be a decade after he beat the fins), snake wrote a book called (shockingly) snake. And he was doing a book signing at a bookstore in Miami.
A friend and I decided to go and see him, buy a book, and have it signed.
He was gracious, and fun to talk with. My friend and I wound up hanging around the book signing for the better part of an hour listening to stories and asking questions.
I developed a respect for the guy because he didn't hate *my* team. He just wanted to win. And he knew a surprising amount about the fins, and other teams in the NFL.
It's funny how sometimes meeting someone can change your point of view and that meeting can stick with you.
