Friendly Encounters

This is another in a series of meetings of my friends and celebs.

When we last featured the Saputo family, Vince was posing with Paul Teutul Sr. Today, we will be featuring Anthony Saputo.
I knew Anthony before the picture was taken. Therefore, obviously I knew him as a real young guy. I had worked with papa Vince and mama Melody at various times at Lerner Newspapers. During Melody's time there, we worked a lot of promotion events together. Often times, Vince brought Anthony and his sister Adrienne to visit us. Anthony and Adrienne were great kids. They were playful, respectful, social and bright.
Now the kids are all grown up. Recently, Adrienne Saputo Rissley sang the National Anthem at a Gwinnett Gladiators hockey game, while Anthony got engaged! Congrats to both of them and Vince and Melody.
So, while the kids are now adults, I will jump in the way back machine and enjoy a picture from their younger days (and mine, too).

Would that be the same Saputo Family that owns the Montreal Impact soccer team ?

I don't believe so. The Saputo family used to live in the Chicago area. Now they live in the South. If they own a soccer team and have been hiding that from me, they are in big trouble!
Thanks for stopping by though.
