“I kind of cut his hand off,” Broome later told reporters. “I saw who he was and I'm a big movie guy. I probably saw one of his movies on the plane coming here.

“But I realized it was him and I was like, ‘Oh my God, I’m a huge fan.’” I'm sorry.' “Just keep playing,” he said.

Broome returned to Freeman during the game.

“I thought, 'I'm sorry again,'” Broome said. “He said: You are all doing well.” Just keep playing. He is a very good man. love it.”
