It was him–number 17–QB for the San Diego Chargers Philip Rivers walking through the glass-door entrance of our hotel. He was accompanied by a family member as they waited for a car to arrive.
He was less than 20 feet from us before he walked through the doors. I was in awe of how extremely tall he was. You see them on TV, unaware of their size in the flesh. He’s huge.
We continued talking to Bill for a bit longer before his next meeting.
Thanking Bill again for the passes, we headed up to our rooms to take in all of what just happened. It was a lot to process. I was so relieved to finally have this huge secret off my chest. I immediately called Mom to tell her everything.
