Steven Hunter and I both took the ACT at my high school during SpringBreak 1999. I went to a small high school, so all the teachers administering the test would have no problem identifying any of the students taking the test, assuming they were from my high school.However, they still required us to bring our student ID's and drivers licenses. There was a small number of students from other nearby high schools taking the test, Steven Hunter being one of them.
When prompted for identification, and after telling the teacher he only brought a No. 2 pencil and forgot his wallet, he removed his sweatshirt to reveal his McDonald's All American jersey, after which he turned around and said something to the effect of "See? It says Hunter." The teacher went and got the basketball coach who confirmed his identity, and somehow this gained him access.

A reader (and soon to be in-law) sends along this charming story about Steven Hunter:
Add Steven Hunter to the list of guys who wear their own jersey in public. Way to be, Steven!
