Years ago i was working at the Mac Expo at Bayside Expo Center in Boston - who walks up but Harry Anderson, placed an order with me. later on i was working an an apple dealership, who walks in but Ned Beatty. pretty cool guys.
Over the phone I've spoken with Donny Osmond, John Laroquette, James Best. Kinda fun!
Nothing lately unless you consider rock conerts. Me and the guys of Aerosmith are very close that way.

@facepainters totally forgot that Drew Carey walked into our CompUSA and bought a MAC. Then I was having a sales meeting at a local IHOP and there he was having breakfast!

When I was 17, I won a contest and became Arizona Congressman Conlan Congressional Scholar and took a 10 day trip to Washington DC with 30 other 17 year olds. (I'll tell you some private funny stories about that trip at the next Rainmaker event! Whenever that might be). While there, I met not-yet Chief Justice William Rehnquist in the Supreme Court's private deliberation chambers. I have a picture of me sitting next to him at the conference table.
When I was in college, I was taking a course in Arizona History, and we had a 60 minute Q&A with Barry Goldwater. We were to research questions to ask him as an assignment. I was the first to go and asked why he switched his campaign manager from a Navajo man to a Hopi during his presidential run in 1964 (which was controversial for some reason). Visibly angry, he looked straight at me, poked his finger in my direction and said, "Now goddamit you listen to me!" Then talked for five minutes without actually answering the question.

That was a great story about BG. You could have been a famous journalist with those lines of fearless questioning!

Heres another infamous encounter
When I was in school I used to fight a lot but one time I decided not to fight this one kid as he backed off. I know I would have done a Fedor Pride era number on him.
Recently I decided just out of curiosity to google his name.
He became a high level mobster and I'll leave it at that as I like my life. lol
