    About a year ago my buddy, my girlfriend and I were eating at the Pink Taco restaurant in Las Vegas and Dana White sat right next to us. So we talked to him for a little bit and eventually asked for a pic and at the end he shook our hands and we went on with our day.

    Anyone else ever meet somebody famous?

    Rode Pirates of the Carribean in Disney Orlando with John Travolta and his family a few years ago. They where in the boat behind us, then on the little ramp thing to the store after the ride. Chatted for a moment, you could tell he didn't want to draw attention to himself. Nice guy though.

    Pete Sampras (if anyone remembers him) lived not far from us for years when he lived in Tampa. We weren't neighbors, but he shopped at the same Publix we did, so yeah talked to the guy a few times. He was VERY shy, surprised he wound up with the wife he got.


    On my first weekend after moving to So Cal, I was at the Westwood Whole Foods (the one by UCLA) and Adam Sandler was there with his wife.

    He had the store guard by them, so I didn't wanted to you know get on their space. Well while trying to get an item, he twice "cut me off", so after the second time I just looked at him and say "next time you want me to grab your cheeks, I'll tell your wife"... Well they both started laughing, then I started laughing. We chated for about 5-10 mins and went our ways.

    This was right as "Longest Yard" was getting re-released, and all I could think was "this dude is TINY to play a FB player"...


    They were both very nice.

    Also while living in So Cal, I was buying pizza at my favorite pizza place, which is in the Larchmont Village. I met Neal McDonough, but he was painfully shy and almost embarrased to be recognized. I just told him that I liked his acting on "Band Of Brothers".

    Brad and his wife Kimberly Paisley at the California Grand Hotel, spoke with them for a couple of minutes and had our picture taken with them. Stood in line at the airport and chatted with John Rich from Big and Rich.

He was also the engineer credited with the concept and design for flying the space shuttle on top of the 747.
