from Randy Sportak of the Calgary Sun,
When Phil Esposito is spotted in Russia, the reaction from a throng of people is a sight to behold.
"One time, my wife (Bridget) looked at me and said, 'I didn't know I was travelling with Brad Pitt,' " Esposito said with a laugh.
"Sometimes I get a little overwhelmed by the admiration, the adoration, whatever word it is. It's overwhelming. I'm 70 years old and, man, it's wonderful to still be recognized and known.
"I think I'm more famous over here (in Russia) than I am there (in Canada and the United States). Does that make any sense?"
continued with video too...
