    Well nobody as famous as Costner, but I've meet Toby Keith, Charlie Daniels, Waylon Jennings, Morgan Freeman, ( he lives a couple of miles from me )
    and Trent Lott.

    I forgot Don ( Big Daddy ) Garlits, John Force, Bob Glidden, Billy Glidden, Carrol Shelby, Jack Rousch, Kyle Petty and Bill Elliott.

    I talked to Carroll Shelby for about an hour at a car show a few years back. Had a great conversation. Didn't know it was him until the next day watching TV.

    Met Bert Jones at the State Police boys' camp (Camp Win-A-Friend) near Holden back in the 70's. I also met Jim Taylor. Had the great good fortune to be hosted by him and his wife at their home before going with him to a saints game, and tailgated with him at an LSU game. Both he and his wife are wonderful people.

    Oh yea, I forgot to mention the first celebrity I ever met: Pat Sejack (sp?). When I was 11 years old, I asked him for his autograph at an Astros game & he went off on me - literally yelling in my face about how rude I was, despite the fact that I asked nicely & he wasn't exactly in the middle of anything. He was a giant deuche.

    So there's the real reason I don't talk to celebrities anymore.

    Here are names that JS may know, but I doubt others will recognize....

    Eddie Hill. He is from the town my folks live in and has shown up a few times when we were at the Trulies' ranch cooking BBQ (Early 80's).

    Also met Lloyd Ruby, Great Driver, Indy Car. Same town as Eddie Hill.

    Ummmmmmmmm....NO.

    ACTUALLY...

    The Yay Area is what the local flips (Filipinos) call the Bay Area.

    I rather like the sound of it and it tends to confuse old minds as well....:hihi:

    The only celebrities I've met are sports celebrities. Bill Parcells when he coached for a year at the Air Force Academy many years ago. He was a jerk 30 years ago. Sat next to Craig (The Walrus) Stadler on a flight from LA to Denver five or so years ago. He hadn't played well in the final round, finished at the bottom of the pack, and tossed back quite a few adult beverages on the flight as I recall. Sat next to Roger Maltbie (former player on PGA tour & NBC analyst) on a flight from Denver to San Jose many years ago. He could also toss 'em back with the best of 'em.
