My daughter went to Florence with uni and met an Italian Wednesdayite who was also a fiorentina fan. They played Tottenham the same season and he displayed a Wednesday flag in amongst the fiorentina fans

Didn't we have a connection with them at some point? I remember the flag,thanks for reminding me pal UTO

Same here.... Wonder if it was you... Ac vs udinese 2017.

Not me. Mine was way back around 2000 and a one-match day.

Cruising on the Med, one of the acts on stage was an hypnotist. Chris Caress.

I thought I’ve heard that name before and realised he had connections with SWFC.

As we left the auditorium he was selling his CDs with his assistant.

 

I asked him if he was a Wednesdayite, and he said he was. We’d just been beaten 5-1 the day before by Stevenege. He left his assistant to selling the CDs and we had a good old moan about the result the day before.

 

Saw him the day after and he was talking to another bloke about football. He introduced me to Sam, an Evertonian. I was surprised the same evening that Sam was the headlining act on stage that evening. Turns out it was Linda Lusadi’s husband!

I have a few

1. Walking around the concourse at a Boston Bruins game in about 2007

 

2. In the Bellagio last summer

 

3. At my home in Koh Samui, I have 2 other Wednesday fan mates here, that I randomly met in bars.

 

Strangly, Ive honeslty never met any piglets on my travels over the years.

The Falkland Islands in 1995. I was in the forces based out there so not unusual to meet other Wednesday fans but this was actually a Gurkha (who were the resident infantry unit at the time) so not your usual fan.

Couple of years back my girlfriend was running (walking) the Belfast marathon and I was driving around dropping supplies to her. Driving along a busy part, I saw a bloke walking along the road with a Wednesday top on. I wound the window down, beeped the horn and shouted “‘come on the owls”. He did wave back, but as an introvert, I immediately wound the window up and cringed at what I’d just done.

 

If you’re on here mate, I can only apologise... :blush:

Met ex Chairman Dave Allen in Paphos, Cyprus while he was still in charge at Hillsborough. 

 

Was in a bar with his Wife and we ended up sat with them rest of thevl night.  Lovely couple despite the bad press, and he picked up the tab.

Las Vegas on the first day I arrived 

It wasn't you then who I was talking to at a poker table at 3am because I was jetlagged and we spent the next two hours taking money off two drunk yanks and ripping the wee wee out of them about American football ? Sorry mate we don't do minority sports  🤣🤣

I was away with work last May in Wheeling, West Virginia. Stayed at the Hampton Inn across from a few restaurants/bars. Directly across is a place called TJ’s Sports Garden Restaurant. On my very last night in Wheeling I went across for probably the 4th and final time for a few beers ($1 a 250 ml measure between 8-11pm) with my colleague. I had the 91 yellow away shirt on... as did a local guy on one of the pool tables, who’d been a fan of Wednesday since the days of Harkes. Couldn’t believe it.

Crinkle Crags Lake District one Saturday a few years ago, near the end of a crappy season. Couldn't stand any more so went hiking instead. It was thick mist and I saw a figure looming up going in the opposite direction. When we got closer we both recognised each other's Owls bobble hats, burst out laughing , banter along the lines of "you can't hide up here, gerrin that ground and watch the game like all the other poor buggers"!

Slightly off topic but I had the misfortune of running past a Sheffield U fan in our respective shirts today in Low Fell (Gateshead). There are loads of Leeds fans knocking about too.

Had a pint in Vegas with ex Wednesday captain Dean Smith, met Eric Bristow same night. Loads of owls in Florida around the parks about 5 years ago. Brother lives in the states so met loads of owls over there, John Harkes created lots of interest in swfc.
