Unexpected encounters with celebrities - Page 103

post #1531 of 2433
Just remembered. In 1983 I shared a cab with 80s pornstar Seka from O'Hare Airport to
N. Michigan Ave in Chicago. There was an older gentleman in the cab as well who asked her
if she were in "Entertainment". After his stop, we discussed baseball and the impact of AIDS
on her "industry". She was even more beautiful in person than on the screen.

Playing BJ in the Cosmo last Friday evening - Neil Patrick Harris at the table next to me. I didn't bother him, but he was being pretty nice to people who said hi. He took a pic high-fiving some tool from my table.

Met Steve Aoki a few weeks ago, then ran into Skrillex but only shook hands and had a brief conversation. The same day I met Steve Aoki; I ended up running into Jeremy Scott; and he complimented my chest hair haha. Sadly, I didn't realize it was him until days later.

The late Steve Jobs lived about six blocks from my former house in Palo Alto.
In the mid-late 90s I would occasionally see him out with his young children,
sometimes accompanied by his beautiful wife. We nodded to each other.

Met Maurice Taylor, a former NBA player, now retired.

Met him in my offices.

Like a lot of things these days he made me feel old!

I told him about a bunch of Houston Rockets that I knew and he said they were all before his time, though he was a gentleman and really nice guy.

I think he retired about 2006, and he looked to be in great shape still.

I told him about my getting back into working out and losing weight and he laughed and said Good Luck. I used to work out with John Lucas who was a recovering addict NBA star, and a #1 draft pick. But that was many, many years ago. I still see Lucas occasionally and he still looks in playing shape. He is a great guy who has literally helped 100s of athletes.

I am sure that he would not mind me saying that I 12 stepped him about 25 years ago and I am very happy that he has flourished and stayed sober. He was the one that introduced me to Vitas Gerulaitas and many more pro athletes.

I cant name most of the athletes, since some still playing. But Vitas is dead. The first thought we all had ws that an overdose was involved. But Vitas died a tragic death in SouthHampton. We all first thought of a relapse and overdose but an autopsy disclosed that Gerulaitis's blood count contained lethally high levels of carbon monoxide, a deadly gas that police said had leaked from a faulty propane heating and air-conditioning system.

Sad, and 2 years earlier I and Vitas had 12th stepped a friend of mine Patrick Robinson, who was book material.

Vitas Gerulaitis is a name I haven't heard in a lot of years. I guess I now know why.

 

Was driving along Fryman when I pulled up beside Charlize Theron who seemed extremely pissed off that I would even glance in her direction. A little while later I was getting a friend's car washed at the place beside Opening Ceremony on La Cienega.  While waiting this guy keeps hovering around and glancing at me. He finally comes over and asks where he knows me from. I say he doesn't, but he keeps asking - this party, that person. I finally say he has the wrong guy and he walks away. My friend comes over and ask why the hell Perez Hilton was talking to me.

With the World Series in town I ran into a bunch of the Fox Sports guys at the bar at the Ritz Carleton in Dallas last night. Eric Karros, A J Pierzynski, Chris Rose and the GREAT Joe Buck. No sign of McCarver. They were part of a sizable group that I can only assume were behind-the-scenes guys or maybe other ball players I didn't recognize. No sign of any ballplayers from the Cards or Rangers. They were probably all under lockdown or staying elsewhere the night before the game.

Rode on the train from the rental car lot to the terminal at Atlanta-Hartsfield yesterday standing shoulder to shoulder with Stephen Root. Wayne Knight was sitting down beside him. They both got off and slowly walked around the terminal. Didn't see either one of them say a word.

A couple of years ago I saw Pierluigi Collina at an airport in Pisa.

I got to eat dinner with Stephen Root once. He really is a hilarious and very nice guy. I was amazed at how humble he was.
