Not too weird. But at our team's very first competition (Regionals, 2009), four moms are standing around outside a campus building and a man walks by (not associated with SO, but working on his degree that Saturday). Three of the four of us simultaneously say, "Hi, Al." Al is my neighbor, so that's why I said hi. Al is also another mom's husband's coworker, so that's how she knew him. A third mom had a child in the same community youth orchestra as Al, so that's how she knew him. The fourth mom looked around at us as if to ask, "Am I supposed to know this Al?" So, we introduced her to Al. Since then, spotting Al a week or two before competition is considered good luck. I see him walking/running around our neighborhood now and then. "Ooh, we're going to do well at State - I spotted Al walking down my street two days ago!"
