Andrew James sent in the last TBG sighting and mentioned that a few of his colleagues had a group photo with The TBG (Tall Blonde Guy). He said they would be sending it in to 2oceansvibe. I forgot about it completely until I received the following email and photograph from The Celebrity MC.
It sounds like the boys had a very special night out with none other than The TBG!

ItÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢s not often celebrity behaviour takes me by surprise, but occasionally even my eyes are opened; cue a night of quiet indulgence at FTV a couple of weeks ago. A number of Springboks were taking a well-deserved break from their World Cup training program, enjoying a relaxed night out, and receiving the encouragement and adoration that (as we both know) comes with star status.
And then something quite magical happenedÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã‚Â¦ IÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢ve had the honour of meeting the TBG on one or two occasions; quite simply, the only other person IÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢ve spent time with who comes anywhere close to exuding the same aura is Samuel L Jackson, and even Sam doesnÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢t boast the same mystique and intrigue. That the TBG affects people so is common knowledge; still, to see the reaction of the rugby stars was startling. As the TBG glided down the stairs to model-packed basement, Percy Montgomery grabbed hold of Bob Skinstad and pointed excitedly; both men looked like kids on Christmas morning. John Smit actually dropped his drink; Jaque Fourie looked like heÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢d been hit with a stun gun; and Butch James and Wynand Olivier, with nervous apprehension and a little giggling, approached the TBG to get an autograph. The TBG was his magnanimous self, greeting each player in turn, shaking hands, having a quiet word. Skinstad had a tear in his eye when the TBG told him that South Africa thanked him for returning home ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â‚¬Å“ that such mundane detail does not escape his eye is further evidence of the TBGÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢s grandeur.
Then, suddenly, he was gone, leaving an excited chatter of Springbok stars; if South Africa does go on to win the World Cup, then the simple touch of the TBG, and a few words of support to our rugby heroes, might well have made the difference.
Yours in reverence,
There is only one word to describe what you experienced and I mean in the true real meaning of the word – AWESOME!
And that photograph! Look at the EXCITEMENT on John Smit’s face! Christ! That’s like a World Cup win. Amazing! And Monty! Well, Monty is just looking exceptional as usual.
But back to that story! That is nothing but AWESOME!!! I mean, there you were, WITNESSING a live gauge showing The TBG’s level of superstardom. Well, it’s just awesome! To see our rugby stars swooning of The TBG must surely put it all into perspective. Only now can we even begin to get our heads around the enormity of the great man’s influence and grande aura.
I just thank God every day for The TBG.
God probably thanks The TBG himself every day.
The TBG probably pulls his hand away and wipes it through his hair as God tries to give him high fives.
God will have The TBG’s number on his speed dial.
TBG probably lost God’s number.
