Brushes with fame...

Moderator: Baseball Moderators

Postby ironman » Wed Jun 09, 2004 1:17 pm

I once drank Fatboy Slim's orange juice.

Last year while attending some Cubs games I saw Billy Corgan and Johnny Knoxville on the street. And saw Fernando Vina and Chip Caray while eating at Harry Caray's.

I went to Junior High with Ashton Kutcher

I attended the same high school as NFL player Dedric Ward and PGA golfer Zach Johnson.

My cousin was a two-time NCAA champion wrestler for the U. of Iowa and also won the Hodge Trophy, which is the equivalent of the Heisman for collegiate wrestling.

My friend once spit on Todd Hollandsworth.

While attending college I worked for the university's catering service and got the chance to serve food to James Earl Jones, Gregory Hines, Tipper Gore and Madeline Albright.

Not really my brush with fame, but my dad is an eye docter, and once had the unexpected visit from Don Mclean for an eye checkup. My dad, being the funny man he is, told Mclean, that he didn't have a Chevy, so he couldn't take his Chevy to the levy, so he drove his Dodge to the lodge. Said Mr. Mclean laughed for about 5 minutes.

As for me, I have actually never met someone famous....kinda sad, huh?

Oh yeah, Kevin Coffey (Paul's cousin) was my tee-ball coach. He lives down the street from me too. And he drives a Corvette, which I'm sure was bought for him by Paul :-D

We babysat Theo Fleury's dog while he was at the World Cup - he gave us some nice memento's for it and also some tickets for one of the games and also invited us into the lockerroom after the game to meet Team Canada - wouldn't you know it, the game went into overtime and the team had to be rushed onto the bus so as not to miss their flight so we didn't get to go into the lockerroom - we also went to his house a couple times.

When my nephew was was was about 10 he was touring the White House with his boy scout troop - a Secret Service agent approached him and told him it was forbidden to wear a Detroit Tigers hat in the White House as the President was an Angels fan (I think it was Angels) and that he would have to accompany the agent (he took my brother too) and leave the building - well what they really did was take him out to the the south lawn where President Reagan was waiting to board his helicopter and introduce him to the President who took the time to stop and chat with my nephew, something he will never forget.

Got to meet Muhammed Ali after an exhibition match one night and get his autograph.

I saw Edge from WWE at Radio Shack. He's from Toronto, so it's not a huge deal, but it was after he "made it big".
