    Tim Witherspoon!

    http://www.boxingontheweb.com/box/with.html

    I shared a flight with him and his training crew. He was a top-notch guy too! He came up to me while waiting for our luggage and made small talk. I have an autograph Philly postcard and a picture of him in the plane. He posed holding his fist up. Pretty cool.

    Hmm I sat next to Boomer Esiason and his family at a NY Ranger game, got to say his wife is very hot, but I was too afraid to look too much because Boomer is huge in person.


    Saw James Gandolfini walking in the streets of NYC, but did not have th guts to say anything.

    Oh yeah I almost forgot. My wife and I missed J.F.K. Jr by two seconds. I saw the back of his head going out the door. lol

    We were staying at a retreat in Cape Breton Island back in '97. It seemed to fancy the stars.

    Ran into Bobby Knight back in '82 or '83, at the Bloomington Airport (literally)...we were flying down to Texas with my father (he was flying a JetRanger Helicopter back from the east coast) and we had to stop in Bloomington because some bad weather had moved in. While we were moping around the lounge, Bobby Knight came storming in, pissed off that his flight was going to be late because of the weather...my brother (who was only about 6 at the time) ends up pulling over a cubicle type wall trying to climb up on it, missing Knight by only a few feet...

    that's a cool perk of your job Indy....all the famous people need help with cable modems too, lol

    I haven't really talked to any famous people, but most of the concerts I goto I've gotten autographs, and usually say stuff like "You rock man, awesome show" etc, typical stuff to the rock stars, lol

    Uh, oh yea, the basketball player Jimmy Jackson, he actually lives (or used to live, I dunno) in a upscale community by me, and I've met him like 2 times, when I worked at a grocery store bagging groceries, he was in my line, lol....he got condoms and KY jelly... drives a sweet ass BMW with some phat rims, but this was like 3 years ago.

    my mom got to shake hands with Bill Clinton, when he first got elected President, or actually before I think, when he was running for President the first time.

    It can be cool at times, but there are those who think they're something special just because they are famous and are pricks as a result...human nature I guess...but for the most part, most of the people that I've met who are famous are pretty down to earth...

    I'll add mine:

    Cher (I was 3 years old, she said I was cute. I knew she liked young guys, but sheesh).
    Jason Newsted - Former Metallica bassist (interviewed him prior to a show in Milwaukee. Nice guy, even though he figured out I really wasn't a a real journalist)
    Bob Gainey - Hall of Fame hockey legend (the guy even held the elevator door for me)
    Mike Modano - Hockey weenie (his words upset me. hate him)
    Mark Tinordi - Hockey (he scared me)
    Lynn Swann - HOF NFL "legend" (he cut in front of me during halftime of a MNF game in the line for the media food. I expressed my displeasure with this. He did not care)
    Many former Minnesota Vikings (was not lucky enough to visit their homes)
    Bill Clinton - Intern BJ receiver (eeerrrr)
