    I work at the number one orthopedic hospital in the country. HSS NYC

    This is the hospital for the giants, mets, knicks, ect and many famous people come in.

    While its against company policy to take pictures, go say hello or any other form of fandom, i SEE celebrities all the time.

    This is who i can think of

    Vince McMahon WWE
    Jeremy Lin -as a knick
    Jennifer Connelly - i think her son had a cast on his arm - she is smokin hot!
    Dee Snider
    Katie Couric - her moms was getting something done

    Sports
    They have all been here.
    Eli manning, arod, mariano rivera

    If someone needs a knee, shoulder or any other orthopedic procedure done they come here. Some of these doctors dont even deal with insurance cause they are that in demand and no need to wait on payment when they can get it right away from the Yankees or Actor.

    I sat next to the Mom from Growing Pains on a plane (i got 1st class from work). I sat next to Al Del Greco from the Oilers at an airport bar. I was at th Pink Pony in Atlanta when Goldberg (WWF) came in and all the dudes watched him go to VIP instead of the girls gettign naked. Same for Diamond Dallas Page at the Diamond Club. I saw that guy from Antiques roadshow getting a cab on Park Ave - one of those twins. I worked the Mayhem Festival as a vendor a fwe years ago and and was eating backstage when the guy Hanneman from Slayer sat down to eat at my table. He said 'we're on next' to someone on his cell. Who knew he' dbe dead or i mighta asked for a photo.

    Ive never been interested in getting celebrity photos. There is maybe a list fo 5 people Id like to get. Me with Ozzy i guess or id give my left nut for me with the 4 Sabbath members.

    As far as meeting them and talking to them? I dont think I have lol
