Encounter with Manon

NGAWire® | 18Aug15

Andy told me he was having lunch at Honey Tree Grille, near St Johns and Carl’s Golfland in Plymouth/Northville.

I reminded him that famous girl goalie Manon Rheaume lived in the area and to pay her visit. I told him I’d text the address.

44658 Broadmoor Circle North
Northville‎ MI‎ 48168

After lunch, Andy stopped at Fresh Thyme Farmers Market for a root beer.

He noticed a dark haired woman with a ‘goofy’ Canadian appearance (description not appreciated by fellow Canadian NGA’ers). She wore 80’s style shorts and had an Alanis Morissette look to her.

She smiled at Andy (goalies always acknowledge other goalies), but then proceeded out of the store.

Andy thought “Could that have been Manon?”

He googled photos of Manon as he looked for the bathroom (he needed to make room for the root beer). The mystery woman seemed to match his phone photos.

After the bathroom break, he noticed she was in the store again, it seems she forgot to buy peppers.

She smiled at Andy again. :)

Needing a better look, Andy worked his way across from her at checkout, with her google image up on his phone for comparison purposes (not creepy at all).

He was now 90% sure it was her, but needed more proof before he’d ask for a goalie-goalie selfie.

Unfortunaly his time ran out.

He watched her leave the store. She drove off in a gray tan brown, charcoal, sandstone, metallic, SUV Chevy Tahoe type of car (a Detroit product for sure).

She turned right onto Sheldon, then left down Broadmoor Circle North (ah ha!).

After googling additional images, he’s now 99% sure it was her.

Chalk it up as opportunity missed.
