    joe johnson, actually know him. General Wes Clark, sold him a mazda miata, green. Darnell Jones, sitting at a bar one day and i did not know he was in town, we sat there and hot the shit for a good 15 minutes, I was like dude you look familiar lol. Short guy. Darren McFadden, running into him at clubs around little rock. Ran into Nelly at a strip club once. Oh, braiana Banks. got a lap dance from here (god she's smokin in real life). Actually quite nice.

    Grew up in Nashville, so ran into Country Music people constantly (went to same grocery store as Minnie Pearl all through childhood, for instance).



    Once ran into LeBron James shooting craps at the Wynn about 3am on the day of a game. Team USA was down by 8 at halftime (because the entire team was apparently up all night), but rallied to win.



    I drove a cab years ago. Picked up a bald guy who was wearing a black tracksuit and smelled like he'd crapped his pants. Drove him to the Hermitage Hotel. He mumbled incoherently, but managed to convey that he wanted me to pick him up and drive him around that night. Took him to the Grand Old Opry (still wearing smelly tracksuit). He offered to pay me by the hour, so I stayed with him (he even had me hold his cash). Took him to a few bars and a strip club (Deja Vu), then had breakfast at the Huddle House around the corner from his hotel. The smelly bald mumbling guy was Hunter S Thompson.

    Sat at a bar with Cameron Diaz and Matt Dillon when they were dating. Diaz is (or was) on the wild side.

    One time Rob Corddry married my cousin.

    I use to see him a lot at family events but then they moved to L.A. from N.Y. Cool guy. Really nice and down to earth.

    I sat right next to Alec Baldwin at the Opera in NYC. This was before 30 Rock and before those tapes of him screaming at his daughter were released on the internet. He seemed to enjoy himself.

    Wow - he's a better actor than I thought! [​IMG] Just kidding - I dont' hate opera, and I think he's a pretty good actor. "ABC - Always Be Closing!" "AIDA - Attention, Interest, Decision, Action" "What's my name? [​IMG] , That's my name!"
