Think back to August of 1997. No cell phones and no internet. What were you doing? Some of you were having a baby, or maybe you were a baby. Or maybe you were beginning your senior year of college like I was.
It was our first day back to college, and I was throwing my best friend, Gin, her traditional birthday party at Chili's (that was the place to go). As usual, there were several people there whom neither Gin nor I knew. One of these people happened to be Brock. He was back at school after taking a two year summer after his sophomore year. I had heard of the famous Brock Gill (famous at our school because of some of the things he had done...he was a legend) my freshman year but I'd never met him.
Here he was sitting at the head of the table. I briefly met him but didn't really get to talk with him, because he was at the other end of the large---very large---table. I did notice him, though...mainly because he was causing such commotion down at his end of the table. I was intrigued by this skinny, tall guy who was larger than life.
