Martin Brodeur - Was getting new hockey skates and he sat down next to me as his wife was getting some skates for their kids or something. Kind of did a double take and then was like , na, why would he be in a total hockey (he was working for the blues at the time) then he started talking in French.. was like wtf best goalie of all time just chilling in a hockey store and no one is saying shit to him. I just said hi, to him he said hello back. The guy comes back with his skates and said it will be about 30min before we can sharpen them, he replied "I have a guy who can do it, no big deal" that made me chuckle, he smile said bye.

Friends dad is a horse racing analyst. Went to the Preakness with them and Kenny Mayne came over to our hotel room to eat crabs along with some other horse racing dudes.

Guy was a hoot. Told me to do a bunch on ecstasy while I was still young.

Went out to Kansas for a baseball tournament in middle school, ran into bone thugs n harmony while out there at the shithole hotel we stayed at. Got a team photo of them, bunch of white 13 year olds :rofl:

Met Kevin Randleman at an Ohio State hall of fame induction while I was valeting. Car reeked off weed, came in with some super hot chick. Had probably a ounce of weed in his glove box (was open when I got in). Made some mention of it when I when I brought his car back, he said I should have pinched some.

Met Eddie George at the same event, cool dude signed my Ohio State hat in my car.

My first concert I ever went to was a bone thugs concert. One got so drunk he passed out in the middle of the stage.

My 2 other very white friends of mine drove my dads Volvo 740 wagon stick shift home windows down blasting fuck the police.

Husband is a digital artist and has been in the space for ages. He has done a tone of visual work for bands at AAC. He did some work for Tool and a few other big names. He was engaged with their production team and we met Maynard at their show here.

I lived in Las Vegas until I was 25 and worked for Mordecai @ The Jewelers for like 10 months in college. I sold Chuck Norris the most ostentatious ring I have ever seen. Mike Tyson was a frequent customer during that time. Suzanne Somers and Dolly Parton both came in. I've long since lost the pictures. :hs:

Met Arnold Schwarzenneger and Maria Shriver at my high school homecoming dinner at Caesar's Palace. They comped our entire table's meal.

I can't believe I forgot about WRC drivers either. Because of my ex who was an editor with Motor Trend & European Car, we did dinner with the Mini WRC team at a restaurant in Olbia during Rallye de Sardegna 2011. Met Sebastian Loeb, Peter Solberg, and Dani Sordo who was driving for Mini. I still haven't met Tanner Faust. Would (possibly?) leave my husband for him. :o

My parents introduced me to Chuck Berry at the casino once. After that, I talked to him on a regular basis over the years when I visited the casino and for a famous person, he hated attention. Didn't like people approaching him to talk or wanting autographs, etc unless you were one of his "regulars". Always had a different white woman with him. I'm friends with Jason Epperson. Only two famous people I know personally.

Gary Sinese - I volunteered to work odd jobs at a benefit concert he was having. Cool dude, no noteworthy stories.

Frank Zombo and some other Packers players - They flew out to my ship mid-deployment for a meet and greet right after they won the superbowl. Got to put his ring on. They flew out there on an Osprey and were scared for their lives

Eric Dane and Bridget Regan - They were filming an episode of The Last Ship on my destroyer, I was standing security watch right behind the director's chair. He was cool and humble, she seemed aloof and annoyed at everything. The film crew and extras were stressing me out because they kept walking around with prop weapons and just pointing them wherever.

I played a bunch of pickup ice hockey games with Eric Melvin, the guitarist from NoFX

I met Miles Teller while they were filming the new Top Gun through a friend of mine who'd been friends with him since before he started acting. He's a megalomaniac and a prick. They're no longer friends because he wasn't allowed to bring his girlfriend to Miles's wedding at the last minute after they had already booked the trip to Hawaii.

Ron Hextall (Goalie for the Flyers in the 80s/90s) - played hockey with his kids when we were younger. John LeClair's kids too.

Johnny Gaudreau (Calgary Flames) - his dad owned the hockey rink I grew up playing in and was my coach for a few years.

I met Shawn Michaels at a restaurant once - we’d accidentally been given his table. Apparently he was fond of the restaurant and had a specific table he liked, and the management had messed up and gotten their days wrong, (it was Tuesday and they thought he was coming on Thursday or something like that). Anyway, the manager, completely embarrassed (this is a pretty nice restaurant) comes by and says “I’m so sorry, but we’d like to move you to another table if you could be troubled, and we’ll gladly compensate you for the cost of the meal and any other meal you’d like while you’re in town.” My sister and cousin were both like “Yeah that’s cool.” and I kind of played the ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥ a bit. "I’m sorry, I just don’t understand. We’ve been here for 15 minutes - we’ve just ordered. Can’t we finish our meal here?" Then out of nowhere Shawn Michaels shows up next to the manager and says “Paul, these guys can finish. We’ll be at the bar. I got some time.” And I (being a big HBK fan) said “Oh wow, uh… I had no idea. Please feel free to give them the table.” Shawn was grateful, shook my hand and said thanks, then gave me a card with his number on it and told me to give him a call later. After working up the nerve, I gave him a call that night, and to make a long story short, we had a glorious 11 month love affair, man on man, that I shall never forget. Our bodies intertwined as one, and from the beauty of Morocco, to the French Riviera, to the snorkeling in the Galopagos, Shawn Michaels and I made glorious gay love to each other on six of the seven continents.

This thread made me think, I really haven’t met famous people for the most part.

I did meet Davante Adams (top WR in NFL) back in like ~2015 at a meet and greet. At the time he was a #3 WR

Never really been in any circles that would lead me to these people I guess.

Kinda wild considering I lived in 2 places where you can run into people, Brentwood and Manhattan Beach in CA. I guess I used to see Matt Leinart at my gym lol also Reggie Bush in MB

Dave Mustaine- insanely nice, former client, and really quiet.
Jamey Johnson- great voice, nice dude, drives very old trucks and Jaguars
Mike Wolfe from American pickers- nice enough, swears like a damn sailor, used to swear and yell at his daughter in public, shit was weird
Bill Engvall- absolutely hilarious, and great all around. Would call him and tell him what his car needed, might be 2-6k and his answer was always. “Cool, call me when it’s done”.
Ronnie Dunn from brooks and Dunn- quiet, and has a massive place. It’s off a main road and you’d have no idea.

John Daly…… will dump his RV poop tank straight into the parking lot. Just leaves it open. Also drinks constantly, like constantly.
hm. not that surprising. always rubbed me the wrong way.

Met Kirby Puckett when I was selling Jeeps. He’d come in a talk once in a while. Probably because he wanted to get out of the house and talk cars. Became friends with his father in law Al. Played golf with him a few times too. I still wear the wristband they gave everyone at his funeral.

Met Prince in a skateboard shop the summer Purple Rain came out. I was buying a G&S board and I heard “nice board” from behind and I turned to see Prince right behind me. He asked what kind of board it was and he told me it needed purple Kryptonics.

Met Marion Barber at a golf event. We went to the same HS and he was interested in the history of the school because I went to the old building. He gave me a jersey after
Sold some cars to pro players. Johann Santana (Roush Mustang) Daunte Culpepper (Expedition)
Signed out local Vikings alum Bob Lurtsema.
Signed out Justin Morneau
Signed out Marion on his new F150

Oh and I met and talked with Jack Roush at the brickyard 400 in 2000. Sat in his chair after Mark Martin crashed on lap 14

cal ripken jr was signing stuff near the dugout. i'm a giants fan since i was a kid but i always thought the idea of playing for one team your entire career was an admirable thing. i get up next to him to shake his hand and say "it's players like you that make me love baseball" - he kinda stops for a split second to look up and look me dead in the eyes, smiles while shaking my hand and without missing a beat he replies with "well it's fans like you that make me love baseball too"

met a lot of celebs and athletes, ones that i like/love a lot more than cal ripken jr but that one has always stuck with me because it makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside

Most of it centers around our home bar that was called the loon. Uptown Dallas. Had been there for like 70 years. real small dive bar. could maybe hold 100 people or less. The property owners of the land it was on eventually sold it out from under them (and everyone else) to build a CVS (right across from a walgreens)... RIP.

So when we started going here I was a more than decent pool player. My GF at the time was one of the best players I'd ever seen. We go in a few times and eventually keep running into this old dude who looks like paul newman. Named Doc. Always wearing black slacks and a coat, turtleneck. He's an OG and he is ALWAYS hitting on all the SMU whores while he beats all their SMU boyfriends in pool for money. He starts to pull the same shit on my gf but she's more interested in pool and he ends up realizing she's as good at pool as he is and we all just become friends.

he starts telling us this story how he's friends with britney spears, Paul Newman, used to be private security for owen and luke wilson when they were kids, their parents had him take them on fucking safaris and we're just like... okay whatever... dude's good at pool and he's old so we will just let him tell his stories and have a good time shooting and teaming up to take other people's money.

so one day we roll in and as usual we see doc playing around with some smu kid hustling him out of $50 or whatever. we walk back and wait to put quarters down and he grabs us and is like hey i wanted you to meet my friend. known him since he was a kid, points us over to a this table and there's a scraggly white guy with curly white hair poking out from under a baseball cap and i'm like "hey, nick, nice to meet you man, doc says yall go way back?" "nice to meet you too man, i'm owen"

it's owen fucking wilson. completely normal dude. we hang out for few hours, shoot some pool, every once in awhile i ask him if doc's stories are true and he basically says yeah, it's all true. :rofl:

mark cuban was also buddies with the owner of this bar, he would come in from time to time and i'd see him and just say hey. nice guy.

then after the mavs won the championship one of our buddies at the bar called us and said hey get down here... just come asap or you will regret it for the rest of your lives. so we get down there and there's a "bar closed for private party" sign on the door, we get let in and hang out for about an hour and then cubes and the entire team walks in with the larry obrien. cubes passes it off to us and we proceed to shut the fucking bar down with basically the mavs team and their friends and like 30 regulars.

we all got to hold the trophy. it was great.

Ive had dinner and/or drinks in NYC with the following people, through mutual friends/family
Of these, I was probably most excited about Uma & Mike D
Mike D was technically brunch, not dinner
The worst by far was Tarantino, who is always insufferable and is to be avoided at all costs
He invested in a restaurant with a close friend of mine and was often around for parties and such
Will Patton is one of my sister's close friends and is a really great guy

I went to Jamaica for a gig with this guy, who is awesome
He was very scared of the way our driver drove around the island at 100 mph
We went to the scariest strip club on earth together with some R&B group whose name escapes me
Fab-Five-Freddy.jpg


I had this guy's home phone number when I was 14 and used to call him often to talk about rare Misfits pressings and Shogun warrior toys
I later shared a stage with him, opening up for his post Misfits band, Samhain

This guy was a regular at parties I DJ'd in the 90s and he once came to a private Stussy event in Miami on my guest list and I got mad props

I met her at Burning Man via mutual friends while tripping on shrooms and MDMA and she told me she liked my gold metallic lamé shorts and I resisted the urge to confess my love to her in front of my then GF now wife

This guy is an old friend we DJ'd a lot together back in the day. Very stand up guy. His family had a dope ass townhouse on Rutherford pl in Manhattan where we would hang out and trade DJ promos some time
Mark_Ronson_2022_Portrait_01_JPEG-300x300.jpeg

Thru Mark I got to DJ with Q-Tip a few times. Very nice guy who I idolize tho a bit moody
q_tip_picture_32ed19486c.jpg


I knew all of these guys and every other rapper on earth via being a DJ and working at a big studio in NYC in the 90s
Puff Daddy comes off as a complete dimwits in person and I frankly don't quite understand how he's made it so far
ODB was a maniac and always on angel dust and more than once the staff locked themselves in an office to stear clear of one of his episodes
Busta is an awesome guy in every way
Guru was a sloppy drunk who often picked fights at events I was DJing and got thrown out more than once
KRS was an awesome guy and for a short time I was loosely a satellite member of the BDP Posse by association with his brother ICU and bunch of club kids and Rastas and weed heads that all hung around downtown NY in those days. I bartended his birthday party and he gave me a BDP hat which I still have

I was in a band with two guys who hung out with this guy a lot in the early days of the NY ska scene
Very cool guy. Women would go fucking apeshit over him every time he stepped into a bar or club
He once got an Eek-A-Mouse show shut down because he was fucking a random girl in a fire exit hallway and tripped the alarm
FDNY guys opened the door and caught him in the act. The girl was totally naked and he was fully clothed
Later that night he had a threesome with 2 girls I worked with, one of whom was a devout lesbian but made an exception for Matt

I watched the OJ chase on TV at the studio with Diggable Planets
I had a crush on Ladybug, but never told her as it was clear she was still in love with the lead dude, Butterfly
They shot the video for Cool Like Dat at the club where I bartended

This guy came to my sister's wedding and my Mom still talks about him like they're BFFs 20 years later
