Re: Celebrities you've met?

lol my list might not be impressive as the rest of you guys, but here goes:

I said hi to Lavar at training camp fan appreciation day before the start of last season.
Um who else...
Oh yeah, while i was waiting in the line for Lavar's autograph Matt Bowen came over from one of the other tables because everyone else was finished signing autographs, and i was like, hi good luck this season lol. He signed my redskins towel, although it came out horrible because towels aren't ment to be autographed.
I also saw Tom Tupa that day and i was like, hey you were awesome last season, and he said thanks lol.
Oh yeah in March i went to Jaxx's in springfield and i met some members from the band Bleed the Sky, as well as some silent civilian members, including their lead singer who was with Spineshank before joining them. Both bands are relatively new though.

That's about it.

Re: Celebrities you've met?

I never met Mike Tyson but I saw him at a Pizzeria Uno's once. I'm sitting there having lunch with a buddy of mine and he's yammering away as always. And at one point he says "I must be talking your ear off...haha I'm like Mike Tyson!" At the moment I look at the table diagonally across from us and slightly behind my friend and there's Mike Tyson! What are the odds?

So my friend goes off on this tangent about Tyson and the ear incident and the rape charges and so on. And I keep trying to get his attention to shut up. Finally he did. I don't know what, if anything, Tyson heard but I was sure to start praising him "It was Holyfield's fault for headbutting him. Tyson's misunderstood. People are just after him cause he's got money" and so on. He had his head down the whole time. It was late spring and he was wearing a thick winter coat inside with a skull cap and a scarf.

Re: Celebrities you've met?

My cousin had a little legal issue a few years back. He used the same lawyer Tyson did when he got locked up here in MoCo. I think that lawyer sucked cause neither of them got off.

Re: Celebrities you've met?

Tyson was my neighbor (well he lived in the next neighborhood over) for a few years but that was the only time I saw him. I used to see Lynda Carter (Wonder Woman) a lot at the grocery store as a kid.

Re: Celebrities you've met?

mine r pretty lame compared to what others have already talked about but here r mine anyways.

I met and had autographed baseballs by doc gooden and darryl strawberry when they were with the Norfolk Tides. I remember seeing Timbaland and Missy Elliot at the Sonics in VA Beach near Pembroke mall. other than those the only other celeb I remember encountering was Herve Villechaize who played Tattoo on Fantasy Island and Nick Nack in the Bond movie The Man with the Golden Gun. He was out with this hot ass chick at the Seaport Village out in San Diego when my dad spotted him and pointed him out to us.

I'd put on my earmuffs and run like a track star.
Anybody see the parody in Scary Movie 4 with Tyson in it? (Horrible movie save your money)

Re: Celebrities you've met?

I met wu-tang after a concert I went to. They came down and started giving people their left-over food. Some guy was like, "yeah! I got wu-tang's fried chicken!" while holding it in the air...lol. It was awesome.

I also saw Jake the Snake Roberts in an airport once.

MightyJoeGibbs, I can see you are a fan of (real) hip-hop...must have been cool to meet KRS, Common, and The Roots. What were they like?

Re: Celebrities you've met?

Let's see. I haven't met too many famous people...mostly local people.

Frank Herzog's daughter was in my First Communion class at St. Martin's in Gaithersburg, so I got to meet him.

Met Curt Schilling and Steve Finley when they were with the O's. As well as Chris Hoiles

From DC101, I've met Elliot, Flounder, Donielle Flynn and a few of their sales people

Met Terrance Morris (Former Maryland Terp). His aunt used to work for my Dad, so he'd come down to the dealership from time to time.

And of course, I've met the famous AMD...as we are fraternity brothers.

The company my Dad works for used to own BMW of Fairfax and Lexus of Rockville. I met Darryl Grant at one of Dad's company picnics, as one of his family members used to sell cars at BMW. But between BMW, Lexus, and Old Georgetown Road (Manhattan Jaguar Lincoln Mercury Land Rover), his shop has worked on cars belonging to Steve Francis (he's met), Michael Westbrook, Richard Hamilton, Sugar Ray Leonard, and countless other athletes.

Re: Celebrities you've met?

I met kid rock in norfolk, va once. It was right after the cole bombing and he wanted to tour the destroyer that was on the pier across from us. Our skipper who was a complete spaz thought it would be a good Idea to line our whole crew on the sides of the pier while he arrived. It was pretty early in the morning and you could see he was tired but he hung around for a minute and shook hands and what not. The one thing about him is that ke is really tall. Like 6'5 tall.
