What’s your most boring/inconsequential Syracuse athlete or coach encounter?

Apparently it’s pretty easy to run into people related to Syracuse athletics.

Many of us either attended Syracuse University, live/lived around the city of Syracuse or both. So it stands to reason that you’d occasionally run into individuals related to Syracuse Orange athletics — specifically, players and coaches.

Sure, there are plenty of “amazing” stories that probably come up there. But around TNIAAM, we’re constantly in the pursuit of something far less prestigious:


On Monday afternoon, Sean asked for SU fans’ most boring, mundane and inconsequential encounters with Syracuse athletes or coaches. And of course, there was plenty to share. We’ve categorized types of responses below, for easier navigation. My personal favorite is this response from a fan (no, I didn’t actually write this tweet).

Boeheim sightings

Food encounters

Bars/booze-related shenanigans


What are your favorites from the list above? And what stories do the rest of you have to share? Keep in mind this is less about the “best” story in the traditional sense. So more likely to fall in line with seeing Jim Boeheim at Wegmans than any time you partied all night with Billy Edelin in New Orleans.
