brush with fame?

ok - so this involves me being at a bar with several beers in me - but i ended up sitting next to nba referee jack nies, watching the end of the pitt-xavier game earlier tonight here in lovely AZ. 

i asked him point blank (again, after several beers) if he would give arenas 'star' calls as soon as he returns to action - and was greeted with kind of a dirty look, and his strong opinion that arenas should not return to action this year.

also - he mentioned that tony parker was blowing by guys as easily as anyone he's seen all year in the SA v. ATL game last night.

and finally - he said he would have called a delay of game technical on levance fields of Pitt after he made his pivotal steal/layup at the end of the xavier game (fields kind of threw the ball after he hit the layup).

so - that's my brush with fame, in as much as nbs refs have some sort of fame among nba fans.  figured i should share with the BF community.  he seemed like a pretty nice guy.  

finally, his friends were all a-buzz about rick patino being the next Uof AZ coach.
