Famous peeps

So I am walking through our local mall yesterday and look in the pizza place and freeze. Standing there, getting lunch is Royce Gracie. I started to take him down and start my ground and pound, but I had a meeting a few minutes later and did not want to mess up my suit.

Anyway, it got me to thinking about who the most famous person that I have ever met is. I've met a few politicians including Bush Sr., quite a few athletes (I'm guessing Peyton Manning or Phil Mickelson would be tops) and Eric Clapton is probably the most famous musician although the most talented was probably Niel Peart.

So, the question on the table is, who is the most famous person you have ever met?

I was on a security detail for Rudolph Gulianni when he came to town two years ago.

That's probably about it for me. While meeting famous people seems cool, I don't think they're any better than us guys here shootin the breeze.

Hell yeah it's fast..........DUMBASS!

I've met most major NHRA drivers and most AMA riders, if by met you mean short chats in the pits. Back in the early eighties I ran into Barbie Benton and chatted her up a bit. I told her I loved her work to which she responded politely. In truth, I don't even know if she had any "work" besides numerous Playboy spreads, but I really did like those.

I was head of security for a rave company and bounced at a few different bars. Not many famous people roll through Portland unless they are here filming movies.

Tone Loc- in gainesville, I forgot about that.

Ziggy Marley- and Robert Jr. and Rojan (Marleys.)

The Miami Vice idiots- Don and Phillip

Indian Larry, Billy Lane

Bruce Jenner

Senator Bob Graham is a friend's godfather- used to seem more level headed. Knew him before he was governor.

Janet Reno

John Glenn

Thurston Moore (Sonic Youth) and his wife. Thurston's mom lived next door for a while.

Charles Oakley, Alonso Mourning.... one of my ex g-fris- was a heat dancer years ago.

Richard Bustillo, Sifu Ted Wong- having to do with Bruce Lee.

Bob Matheson and Bob Griese.....

Could be more.

Really could care less- never asked for an autograph- don't really get that.

I've tried to think who I would ask for an autograph and came up with:

Wayne Rainey, Carroll Shelby, Bob Hannah, Earl Hayden (yes Earl- he raised 'em)... and still not sure what I'd do with the signatures.

Fun little thread.

Sarah Palin and friends can call it a snow machine all they want but Yamaha, Polaris and Bombardier plus the related magazines all seem to call them Snowmobiles.

Snow machines create snow on ski slopes. Just sayin'
