Are you seven feet tall?

This is totally random, but I’ve always had a fascination with height, and I want to be friends with someone who’s at least seven feet tall. I once met a seven-footer on Halloween who was dressed as a tree, but alas, we only had a brief conversation. Last year I had a longer encounter with a very tall fan at a baseball game, but he was only 6-foot-10. And then there’s my good friend Leon Feingold who’s 6-foot-6. (Yawn.) So please, if you’re crazy-tall (and proud of it), get in touch. For the record, I’m only 5-foot-11. Try not to hold that against me.

I’ll leave you with two photos of the great Robert Wadlow (who stood nearly nine feet tall) — one with a couple of honeyz and another with his father…

I’m not 7 feet tall but I am 5-foot-8. I usually think of myself as tall but I don’t think I’d want to be 7 feet tall.

I’m 6 foot, but I’m only 13, so… I personally would think it would be a pain to be 7 foot. Kinda cool, but always stared at, and inconvenient at times.

Hahaha, maybe I’m done growing. I don’t know. I’ll probably be stuck at 6 ft. forever now.

Hey Zack, happy new year! Long time no talk. So this is pretty random, but the other day you were asking about commercials were foul balls and such appeared. I just saw that on TBS on Jan 14th, in an episode of King Of Queens, here’s the plot: Feeling guilty, Doug invites Arthur to a Mets game; Doug gets arrested trying to catch a foul ball. Not sure if it’ll help you at all, haha. It’s on at 4:30 PM that day, next Thursday. I just got TiVo and you can search for shows and record them right on the TiVo website, so I searched for “Mets” to see if any Mets related shows were on in the next 2 weeks, and that show was one of the listings. I can’t remember ever seeing that episode, so I’m going to record it.

ELLIE-
5-foot-8 is pretty good. Stand tall. Be proud.

STLFAN-
Nice. I remember that there was one kid in my 7th grade class who was six feet tall.

Hey, what’s up! I already got “King of Queens” covered, but thanks anyway. You never know…

im about 6″2. I snagged with you once late in the year at citi field. Think i had a NY Rangers shirt on. Really didn’t talk with you though because you were with a client. It was the night the brave got hit during bp i believe. Not sure if you remember me.

There is this kid at my school and he’s white. He’s 6’4!

Somehow I didn’t see your comment until now. Sorry about that. Are you any taller now?

MATTHEW NGUYEN-
And being white has exactly . . . what to do with it?

I am female and was just under 6 feet before high-school and always stuck out.. used to be embarrassed about it but now I stand proud!

Stand tall! I love it.
