They are usually pretty confused, but doing this has got me talking to some pretty cool people, and they usually instigate the conversation with 'do I know you?' I also never ask for autographs... I think they find it refreshing being treated like a normal person for once.
I had a 15minute chat with Manchester United and Norway legend Ollie Gunnar Solskjaer (even though I am a Man City fan), a drink with Senegal Football international Makhtar Thioune (well he had an orange juice as he's a muslim!) he actually gave me his email and said if I was ever in Norway ask him for some free tickets! Also did the same with Dishasi from Gym Class Heroes after a gig, 2 drinks for about 30mins and also Sajid Mahmood the England fast bowler in cricket!
They seemingly react far more favourably when you do that.
Who bought the drinks?
