M _ _ _ Nash!

I announced my last boys basketball game for the year last night and when I looked at the visitor's score book the 2nd name listed was M. Nash. I kind of chuckled and when I asked their team manager for first names so I could announce them during the game he said the name and it was my name. Deja Vu!

A few minutes later I was handed the starting line up cards and I WAS STARTING! When I announce line ups I announce the visitors to the Top Gun Theme song so it went something like this: Now starting for the Texans, playing post, 6'3" Junior, number 4, M _ _ _ NASH! The crowd went wild. Really only the hand full of visitors clapped. I actually hesitated when announcing the next name. It felt kind of surreal.

During the game M _ _ _ Nash only scored 7 points, but he played most of the game. I had a side wager with the guy running the clock that I would score 10 points.

Have you ever heard your name out somewhere else?

YES and NO: reply to anon and billyv. I never thought I'd score 7 points in a game. I think my max at church was 3 points.

I told you once I bought a car from a sales manager named Michael Nash in Richardson.

When I worked at the retail store in Tennessee I had actually had a girl return something and when I asked for her name she said the same as mine, even the last name. Her birthday was the day before mine, I thought I was in the twilights zone really, it was really bizzare.
