    DA KING , while being a young lad, met a then very high profile astronaut . John Glenn back in 1968 I do recall . I'm telling you now, back in those days somebody like that left a lasting impression with young people . Those WERE the good old days........Also met and talked with Ira Joe Fisher ( The weather man on Good Morning America) Very nice man......... THE CATKING !!! :)

    Also Catking I hope your cousin (Don Zimmer) got over his Hemmoriods! :eek:
     
  18. I don't have many brushes with greatness that I can recall. The only one that comes to mind for me is Tim Belcher, the retired baseball pitcher. He grew local and lives here now as well. I have met him a few times. He is a pretty good guy and you would never guess that he was a baseball star. He is a pretty down to earth guy.
     
  19. I've met quite a few MLB players and a few other "famous people", but I never met one that didn't put his pants on the same way we all do-one leg at a time ;-) Most of them had more money in their pockets, though! :)

    Catlover did create the thread, so I think if he wants to post a diff question he should be able to to... Just my two cents
