John Elway was in Washington D.C. last week to attend the presidential inauguration. While he was there, he hopped in a cab with his wife, Paige Green, friend Glenn Stearns and cab driver Sam Snow.
Snow was asked who he thought the greatest quarterback of all time was during the ride. Snow answered Elway, even though he apparently didn’t realize that the Broncos legend — wearing sunglasses — was sitting in his backseat.
Stearns, realizing this, played the joke up. He told Snow that Green used to sleep with Elway.
“With the money he got, even guys want to do him,” Snow says.
Near the 2-minute mark, Snow finally makes the connection that Elway is in his backseat. He…looks a little shocked.
“Y’all got me. I gotta take some pictures to show the guys. I know they’re gonna be jealous,” Snow, a self-described Steelers fan, says upon making the realization. “As a matter of fact, the ride is free. John Elway, unbelievable. Many times I was at Three Rivers Stadium when you pissed me off.”
