For a brief moment, Adrian Peterson was just like the rest of us. The soon-to-be free agent running back was minding his own business when a local TV reporter decided to stop Peterson in his hometown of Houston to ask him a question about road rage.
Little did John Donnelly of FOX 26 know he was talking to a future Hall of Fame running back.
As Peterson, wearing a tank-top, answered the question, Donnelly innocently asked for his name.
“Adrian Peterson …”
After an extended pause, it donned on Donnelly just whom he’s speaking to.
“Wait a minute,” Donnelly says, “you’re not …”
“Yeah,” Peterson says with a smile.
Take a look at how it all unfolded.
Here I am interviewing people on the street and not realizing I'd stopped a celebrity. Enjoy the awkwardness!
