It’s not day-after-day that one can post to Facebook that they were within the presence of NFL greatness.

But, Greg Bartolo did.

He was at Hersheypark Friday, when he recognized retired NFL quarterback Eli Manning.

“As awesome of a day it normally is at Hersheypark, having the ability to cross paths with such an NFL legend made it even ‘sweeter,’” Bartolo said. “It’s great having such a world class park right in our backyard, that draws celebrities and renowned sports figures like Eli.”

The serendipitous moment happened while Manning and his family were about to ride the Jolly Rancher Remix. Bartolo was in line behind him.

Bartolo said on his Facebook page that he was stumped momentarily until he realized the 6 foot 5 man was Manning.
