Here’s one the more unusual episodes that happens to famous people. It seems that Bono and his assistant were wandering around West Vancouver, British Columbia the other day when it started to rain. Now you’d think that a guy like Bono would have limo following him around or something. But no, apparently Bono just rolls with it like the rest of it. He ends up sticking his thumb out, trying to hitch a ride.
So along comes Gilbert Brule, center for the Edmonton Oilers of the NHL, who is out for a day with his girfriend. they end up picking Bono and giving him a ride back to his hotel. he also ends up with U2 tickets, and backstage passes, for the U2 concert in Edmonton. Talk about a good deal.
Why don’t I get lucky like that? If I picked up a guy in the rain he would probably turn out to be the president of the Charles Manson Fan Club.Eric Drouant
