It was 2003, I think, and I had received a pass from Bobby Jackson to go hang out in the family room after the game was over and meet some other players.
I am not really a star-struck type. I kinda just stood around and waited for the players to come out, which took forever and I ended up leaving as they got there.
While waiting just outside the family room and I see Grant Napear blaze in.
Grant headed straight to the food, which looked like it had been sitting there for about 3 hours, and starts eating it with his hands.
He was eating chicken pasta, etc without a plate, straight from the silver servers.
Grant, not knowing anyone was watching, grabs three or four dinner rolls and heads around the corner into the men's restroom.
He emerges a minute later, without the dinner rolls.
How did he manage to take a piss and eat 3-4 dinner rolls at the same time?
Several theories exist on how Grant could have accomplished such a task:
1. He tossed the dinner rolls. - From how hungry he looked, very unlikely.
2. He pissed without a guide - Draw your own conclusions.
3. He put one roll in his mouth while he took the piss - If so, how did he eat allof them in about 1 minute?
4. He sits down to piss - How did he unzip and put on the ass gasket in such a scenerio?
A mystery to me to this day. One thing for sure is he voilated at least two unwritten rules: Using his hands to eat out of a communal food dish and eating in public restroom.
Think twice before dining with Mr. Napear.
I like Grant in a way, the grouchy exterior is a show. Approach him at the golf course. He is a different guy when he isn't working or doing a radio show.
