More Charley Pride Greatness (For Real, This Time)

OK, I’ll admit I was duped last time around. An alert and suspicious FBvian pointed me here, and well, yeah, looks like I was snookered. But this Pride nugget, from a self-deprecating FBvian, while obviously less funny, sounds like the real deal:

I grew up in sherman and was in a legal Explorers post – Explorers was for those of us who couldn’t actually cut it on the Eagle Scout plan – and our group came to Dallas one day for meetings at the federal court (as I recall we got to meet Sarah Hughes) … anyways, we were on the tollway heading south … I looked over at the cadillac seville next to us (I always loved me a cadillac car) when I recognized the driver and shouted out “HEY, THERE’S CHARLEY PRIDE” sounding like gomer pyle I’m sure … he saw me, probably reading my lips as I mouthed the words … charley grinned, nodded his head with a little acknowledgement and gave a little wave … that was more than 25 years ago and I still think it when i’m driving on the tollway … shoot, that was too cool
