Re: Ever meet anyone famous?
I went to elementary school with the late NBA star Quintin Dailey. He wasn't famous then, just the nicest kid you'd ever wanna meet. He died a few months ago at his home in Las Vegas.
When I was growing up, I had the good fortune to meet and chat with a few of my sports heroes from the '60s and '70s - Johnny Unitas, Brooks Robinson, Jim Palmer and Tom Matte. I also introduced the mayor of Baltimore at the time, Wm. Donald Schaefer at a ground breaking ceremony for our new elementary school.
As an adult, I've sat at a bar and talked with former Baltimore Colt Art Donovan, picked up former O's 1st baseman Boog Powell when he was stranded on the side of the interstate and briefly met Steve Vai.
