Ghost Hunters' Brian Harnois (the one with the attitude and teeth in desperate need of realignment) pulled up behind me at a traffic light the other day.


And while it may be more appropriate for the "Celebrities you KNOW" thread, my good friend Peggy Llewellyn is quickly establishing a bit of celebrity status for herself by clinching her eligibility a couple weeks ago in the NHRA Powerade Drag Racing Series Pro Stock Motorcycle championship "Countdown to Four."

I've never seen any "real" celebrities aside from coaster and park people (eg. Robb, park management, GCI people). With prosopagnosia (it's a long word, look it up on Wikipedia), I wouldn't recognize a celebrity if I passed them on the street anyway. Even though I do live in a small college town, there are quite a few big time athletes and coaches here.

Travis Barker, Eva Longoria, Weird Al Yankovic and Andre Agassi all impressed me as very nice, genuine, reasonable people when I've run across them at rides. Plenty of other celebs are either not so fondly remembered, or not recognized. (Hell, I had no idea who Longoria or Agassi were until someone told me, and Barker was a lucky guess based on tattooage.)

We also spent some time with Madina Lake. They came a few days early filming stuff for the website. We were at thier taping and got to chat with them a bit. Coincidentally we ran into Nathan at a party at the Hard Rock pool that Friday and chatted with him for a bit.

I never personally met a athlete in person or a celebrity in that matter. Well, actually I met Dan and Casey at CP last month.


My brother said he saw Craig Monroe (when he played for the Tigers) and Sean Casey as well at the movie theater he works at.


If I was there and saw Sean Casey and Craig I'd be OMFG!! TIGERS ON FIRE!!

Sorry to dig up an old topic, but...


I JUST met Ann Coulter!!! I'm a bit of a political junky and I just got super nervous that I was going to say something stupid. She was speaking at Furman University and when I saw her afterwards at her signing I mentioned that this was the second time I had seen her speak, the first time being at The University of Florida in 2006. On both occassions she had a Q&A session, and we talked for a little bit about how the questions she was being asked at Furman were a lot more intelligent and pertinent to current politics than the questions she was asked at UF, since that area has more of a liberal bias and very few of her questions in Gainesville strayed from the "would you really send Timothy MvVeigh to the New York Times?" type of thing. She asked me if I went to Furman, and I said no and that I go to Clemson. She asked me what I was studying and I said global politics and business, then she signed my book and I thanked her and left.


Don't hate.

I've met the band members of "Better Than Ezra"


I got a hug and a kiss from Charo after one of her performances I was an A/V for at the hotel.

She's very short in person..I had to lean over when she gave me the hug and kiss


I've come within feet of Susan Lucci (Erica Kane from All My Children. If you don't know, ask your Mom.)


I've come within feet of Snoop Dogg when I was a P.A. for his music video "Life of Da Party."


I talked to Joel Stein (LA Times Columnist and has been on a few VH1 Specials) who was at the music video shoot. Very nice guy to talk to. He's even visited my area of CT since he used to have family up here.

^I saw the band play back in 2004, and had the chance to be backstage for a good part of the day. Those guys were always fighting and arguing with each other, I'm personally surprised they lasted as long as they did.
