Yes. He coined the phrase "It aint over til the fat lady sings" FYI. I used to work as a bagboy at Albertson's years ago and took his groceries out for him once. We talked in the parking lot for about 20 minutes on the Spurs, Longhorns, and Astros. He was a cool old guy

@The Black Irish: Would you be referring to the Huebner/NW Military location of Albertson's? I was a bagboy there myself during my senior year of HS in 1999. I also worked there during summer and Christmas breaks in 2000. I remember seeing Dan Cook there frequently, never got to take his groceries out though. That's awesome that you did!

I do remember Vinny Del Negro being a frequent shopper there....DID take his groceries out once, total douchebag, I remember he just got right in the car and his wife chit-chatted with my co-worker and me.

That was the one! But it was when it first opened I believe in the early 90's. Funny thing was we walked around the parking lot for awhile b/c he couldn't remember where he parked! We finally found his car over by Blockbuster like ten minutes later. Yeah Del Negro seems like he would be a jerk. He sucked as a player anyhow. He was no Avery Johnson

Del Negro almost ran me over going to class at UIW, when they used to practice there. He was speeding around a corner and barely missed.

Maybe Google "Dan Cook Dead" and you would have your answer on the second result. Far faster than typing a post longer than three words and waiting for a reply?
