Amy Clegg had a brush with fame when she met Terry Bradshaw, FOX sportscaster and former NFL quarterback, while on a trip for business in Salt Lake City.
Clegg, 44, of Clarks Summit is a franchisee of Express Employment Professionals, a national temporary staffing agency, and she ran into the former Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback during a meet-and-greet ahead for franchise owners and their staff.
Bradshaw will be one of the speakers during the simulcast viewing April 17 at McCann School of Business, Dickson City. The event will be broadcast from Florida.
Decked out in Steelers’ gear, Clegg and some of her staff met Bradshaw and asked him a few questions about leadership, both on the field and off, the theme of the upcoming simulcast.
He was being photographed , so at first he didn’t answer her. Clegg said she felt a little foolish, thinking he was ignoring her, until he turned toward her and “with exuberance and excitement” gave her his answer after his photo was taken.
“Personal life is less stressful,” he told her. “I can control me. It’s what happens outside that I have no control over.”
Clegg said Bradshaw was beaming and acted as if she had asked “the most brilliant question in the world.”
When she told the Hall of Famer that she was from Scranton, Bradshaw said the city’s name “with perfect local dialect.”
“I could tell by his smile that he knows and loves our city,” she said.
“I guess most people just tell him how much they admire him or ask for his autograph,” she added. “I think I really took him by surprise with a leadership question.”
Clegg was impressed with Bradshaw, who even waved off security so he could sign some items, which was against the rules for the meet-and-greet.
“We were so thrilled and we felt so special and honored,” Clegg said.
