This got brought up in the Tony Gonzalez farewell pc thread and I thought it deserved it's own...

Tell your story about when you met a pro player, NFL, NBA, MLB...etc

here's mine...


I was at a football camp when I was a kid and Marcus Allen was the star of the show. During the day, I had went up to him with a football card and he signed it and I told him how big of a fan I was and yadda yadda... Seemed cool, then I saw a kid bring a football up to him and he signed it. "Wow, what a great idea," I thought. So that night I gathered up all of my allowance and bought a brand new football before attending the award presentation. After the ceremony I went up to him with the ball and said "Mr. Allen, could you sign this for me?" He said, "Didn't I sign something for you earlier?" I said, "Yes sir but I just wanted to see if....." and he cut me off.... "Kid I gotta sign alot of autographs." Then he walked away. I was fugging devestated....

On a side note: My brother worked at a golf course in Cali and was asked by one of Allens buddies to get some cocaine for them....he obliged.

As much as I don't like Marcus Allen, I agree with him there.. You already got an autograph, now you just seem like a person trying to sell it..

James Worthy signed a $10 bill and gave it to my mother and me. Larry Johnson spit on me at a club but he didn't actually TALK to me so I don't count him.

My parents ran into Marcus Allen at a hotel bar one time. He was apparently very nice, and offered to sign something for them. They didn't have anything so he signed a cocktail napkin.

It sucks that you got your hopes up I guess, but the fact that Allen was appearing at this camp and signing stuff for the kids makes it sound like he's not that bad a guy. I imagine there has to be a time when enough is enough or kids will have him signing everything they own.

I was a Cubs fan growing up and hated Pete Rose. He spoke at something in my town when I was 14 and my boss scheduled me for work and paid me to take her kid. I won the door prize and had to go up and shake hands with him. I scratched my balls before I went up. (We always did this before shaking hands when we lost a baseball game.)

I've met George Brett many times on numerous occasions, he's really good friends with my friends Dad.

Let me be the first to say that George Brett has the most filthiest mouth on the planet. Good lord.

If anyone's seen the Youtube clip where Brett talks about how he shit himself at the Bellagio in Las Vegas, he talks about how his friend Larry had to help him back up to his room because Brett's pants were filled with shit.

The Larry he's talking about is my friends dad.

He (Larry) also happends to be the former KC's Secret Santa. He passed away a couple years ago

This has been done before, but it has been quite a while.

Took the wife and kids up to a Royals game, early 80s. George Brett used all of the brakes on his Porshe not to T Bone us. He was flying through the parking lot and we were just kind of looking around since it was well before game time.

Played black jack out in Vegas with Johnny Bench, at the Mirage 1990.

Met Mike Bell at the Turnpike McDonalds couple years ago, he signed my jacket.

His daughter was in my brother's class so I got to meet him a couple of times. I was hanging out at the school waiting for something to end and he and I were the only ones in a waiting area. He came up and started talking with me. I was too awestruck to ask for an autograph and I always think of him as this classy guy that took the time to come over and talk with a dumb kid.

I've also met Deron Cherry a couple of times in the 90's. Really nice guy.

Dino Mangiero, who played for the Chiefs in the early to mid 80's was the brother-in-law to a friend of mine in grade school. Dino came in and talked to us about getting an education and having something to fall back on. We then got to tour Arrowhead. This is what first got me interested in the Chiefs.

I went to DT's house for halloween when he was a rookie and he was giving out autographed cards. We tried to go back and he laughed because he noticed we had just switched masks so we only got candy on the return trip.

Met Neil Smith in an Applebee's and got an autograph.

I contributed to the bad behavior of a certain NFL all pro that went to TCU and now plays in our division (prior to and during his NFL career). I will never give the details because A) most wouldn't believe me and B) it's incriminating of me (so don't ask).

Almost got into a fight with Herb Taylor (yes the Herb Taylor on the Chiefs) when he was at TCU. It started with me stepping on Quintilly Harmon's foot (he was a WR at TCU). I apologized and then he tried to punk me so I told him to go fuq himself and bring it if he wanted to do something. He got all puffy and tried to intimidate me which is impossible bc I grew up in East KC and we'll take an asskicking before backing down. So, things escalated and next thing I know I'm looking at about 6-7 football players one of which was ol Herbie. I thought this was really hilarious as I'm 5'8" and they felt the need to try and intimidate me. Well, I hung out with many of the football and basketball players too so my crowd gathers and it was about to be a royal rumble at my friend's cousin's bar. Well, then one of the older and wiser guys who knew me stepped in and asked what was going on and told the other group of guys they were stupid because Quintilly (what a bitch ass name btw) had started it so it defused the situation pretty quick. The funniest thing out of this whole ordeal was the scrunched up mad dog face that ol' Herbie made when they tried to swell up on me and intimidate me. I doubled over laughing becaue of that. Now before everyone says I think I'm superman, I know I would have gotten my ass kicked but someone's football season would have been finished that night (I had two beer bottles in my hand. one empty and one full bc there is no such thing as a fair fight). Anyways I always think of that night when I see SnR's avatar (I think SnR is the one with the taylor avatar)

Edit: I also went to school with Christian Okoye's neice.

I ate dinner with Ladanian Tomlinson and Quentin Jammer. LT was about as nice as you would imagine him being, he's a good guy. I was surprised that he wasn't in a terrible mood, since they had just lost a close one to the Donkeys a few hours prior to our dinner. I asked him what he thought of the chiefs (this was in the Vermiel era) and he called the defense "sorry" lol.
He also said that he hated the raiders the most, and the Bill Romonowski (Sp) was the dirties player he ever played against.

QT on the other hand, never really socialized with us. He went off in the corner and ate dinner with his family. He had the hugest fore arms i had ever seen in my life. they looked like a mutation.

I've also met Reche Caldwell, Kasim Osgood and some ex RB, can't remember his name though. Something Fletcher i believe. He came by and preached to a small group of us.

Met TO and "The Bus" at a celebrity basketball game. "The bus" was really cool, TO was an arrogant prick. All the kids were clamoring for an autograph from him, but he bee-lined off the court as soon as the game was over. Robert Griffith was there as well, he was a class act.

Oh, that reminded me, that card that I got Allen to sign, well, that same brother that got coke for him actually stole that card when he was living with me and pawned it to buy weed.

I wasn't that mad at the time cuz I hated Allen. Now that I don't anymore I'm kindof upset.

Former Bronco and Panther and Husker Tony Veland is the Defensive Coordinator for the Omaha Beef, and just this last week, NFL legendary tight end Russ Francis (played in the 9ers superbowl win over Miami) just took over as GM of the Beef. So, that's two guys that I get to talk to now on a (semi) regular basis.

Both very cool guys by the way. Russ Francis introduced himself to the fans last Friday night, then came to the after game party and made the rounds. He was there longer than I was.

I used to manage a retail clothing store and right after Ryan Sims was drafted, him and his girlfriend came in and his girlfriend was trying on some clothes. Well, I didn't know who he was at the time, but Sims' GF asked him to hold her purse while she tried on the clothes. As I was walking by, I saw this enormous man holding a leopard colored purse, so I made a comment to him about how nice his purse looked on him. He just glared at me and didn't like it very much. When they were checking out and he handed me his North Carolina ID that said his name, I realized it was our new #6 overall pick.

My brother and I met The Rockers (Marty Jannetty and Shawn Michaels) at the airport in Tampa when we were like 9 or 10. We were huge WWF fans back then and they gave us an autographed picture and then wrestled with us and messed around with us for about 30 minutes. Their flight was delayed and they were just sitting around waiting. It was pretty cool. I'm not sure if most people knew who they were but my brother and I recognized them as we were walking through the terminal.

Went to the Kevin Ross/ Albert Lewis football camp a couple of years. Great guys.
Anyhow, there was this kid at camp who was fast as hell. Probably a 4.7 or 4.6 40. He begged Ross to race him the entire camp. On the last day Ross said okay. Gave the kid a 15 yard head start, they raced 50, and Ross beat him by 7-9 yards...

In 1988 I was at a Padres game (I was only 2 Years Old) and My Dad was sitting right by the Dodgers Bullpen and somebody right behind him spilled beer all over him, and Don Sutton saw it happen. I was sleeping and Don Sutton told my Dad to give me to him, so he could go to the bathroom and clean up because my Dad wasn't with anybody but me.

So thats my most famous one...even though I don't remember it.

In 1991 there was elevator access down to the access tunnel in Jack Murphy Stadium, so my Dad took me down there after a game and I got to shake hands with Fred McGriff and Tony Fernandez.

In 2003 I was standing on a tee box while Tiger Woods teed off in the first round of the Buick Invitational, and he drove the ball right. He uttered, "Gosh Darnit. Don't Go There. Son of a Bitch!" I didn't really meet him, but I thought that was funny.

In 2008, Brian Giles was lost trying to find his Tailgate Party at the Chargers game and I offered him a Beer and he drank it with me, and then he drank another one. That was the coolest one.

In 2008, I told Jerry Hairston Jr. to go fuck himself.

Thats about it.

In 1988 I was at a Padres game (I was only 2 Years Old) and My Dad was sitting right by the Dodgers Bullpen and somebody right behind him spilled beer all over him, and Don Sutton saw it happen. I was sleeping and Don Sutton told my Dad to give me to him, so he could go to the bathroom and clean up because my Dad wasn't with anybody but me.



And what did he do to you? :hmmm:

Also, at that same job, on a Sunday right after a game Mike Cloud came in and decided to park his Mercedes right in front of the store in the fire lane. I told him I wouldn't park it there because he would probably either get ticketed or towed, but he said, "They know who I am. They wouldn't dare tow my Mercedes, and I don't care if they give me a ticket."

About 30 minutes later, I watched as the tow truck towed him away while he was in the dressing room.

My first game starting varsity was televised. Deron Cherry was announcing it. Early on the game the top RB in the state slipped an attempted tackle by me, and Cherry replayed it and ripped me at least 4 times. I'll never forget hearing him say, "that guy didn't even want toake the tackle." no one else who saw it let me forget, either.

I forgot one of the best ones.

2008 - In Denver - I am at Dave and Buster's and I spot Allen Iverson. I'm not a fan of his, so I didn't really care, but its hard to miss him, with his bling bling on.

One of the girls I was with was a Denver Fan, in all sports so she wanted to get a picture taken with him. She went up and asked and he acted like a bitch and wouldn't even look her in the eye. Finally when the Manager of the restaurant came over to get her out of this bad situation and she turned around he stood up and yelled "NO!" at her.

Then he and his entourage started laughing really loud.

Fuck Allen Iverson.

Met Dino Hackett in KC. Offered him a beer and he politely declined.

Ted Williams signed a ball for me.

Met Faith Hill before she was famous. Had her laughing hysterically. So I asked for her phone number and she said, "maybe". Went and talked to Brooks and Dunn and forgot to ask Faith again for the number.

Took a certain FEMALE country singer home for the night. Saved her underwear as a souvineer. Then lost them somewhere. My buddy is still pissed because he thought she was going with him.

My buddy and I got in a fight with two mouthy pricks. Ten seconds into it we were jumped on by 10-20 long-hairs. Turns out my buddy was thumping the lead singer of Bad Company and I was thumping the bass player. The long-hairs were their roadies.

Met Holyfield in Atlanta. He was nice as hell, but really intimidating looking.

My buddy worked for Chris LeDoux so I met him half a dozen times. He was as nice a man as you could ever meet. R.I.P.

Tracey Lawrence and his brother got my buddy and I drunk one night.

Met Jerry Rice. His buddy asked if I could get him (the buddy) some cocaine. Told him no.

Met Clint Eastwood. My buddies and I have pictures of us smoking cigars with him.

Was in the 95 mph batting cage hitting every pitch. Some bald guy in a 'Bill Cosby sweater' was trying to give me pointers. Keep in mind I was jacking every pitch. I got pissed and said, "Let's see if you can do any better." He stepped in and put me to shame. Talked with him for 20 minutes before I realized it was Will Clark. He signed a ball for me.

Damn...I got a lot more, but they're not that interesting to tell. And now that I live in a tiny town I never run into celebrities.

Then the true prize in my collection is a signed Willie Davis rookie card, that I had signed at some charity basketball game. I was probably 13 or 14 then. I just looked at his wikipedia and it says he is now a scout for the Chiefs, I wonder if he just got fired.

OK...long but good story. It was the '88 or '89 the Yankees are in town and I'm eating lunch at Crown Center in the open seating area. Almost all the seats are full so I find a table with two seats and sit down. A couple of minutes later an older man walks up and asks if he could sit in the empty seat, and I said ok. He reaches his hand out to shake and says "thank you. My name's Phil Rizzuto. (For those of you who are too young he was the shortstop for the Yankees in the 50's/60's and was a Yankee Broadcaster). So I spend the next hour plus talking baseball with The Scooter. He left me tickets for the next night's game at will call and with the tickets was an autographed ball. I guess it was Karma. Do a nice thing and end up spending lunch with a baseball legend.

Oh hell I've met quiet a few. The first one that really comes to mind is meeting Christian Okoye in the Arrowhead parking lot in his full African get up during his hey day. I was probably like 8-9 and he was the biggest dude I'd ever seen. Kind of scared he was going to crush my hand when he shook it. Use to race motocross with Clint Bowyer almost every weekend. Got to hang out with almost the entire 85' World Series team at their 10 year anniversary get together. I was 14 at the time and was so awe struck I didn't know what to do or say. Three years ago Clint was at Lakeside on the Saturday night of the Cup weekend and caught up with him and hung out with Carl Edwards. Carl is a helluva nice guy. It's kind of funny just hanging out with them when there are no cameras and they're not thinking about mentioning all their sponsors. Cool to see they're just normal dudes.

About two years ago I went to a benefit for spinal cord research. They where roasting George Brett and there was only about 200 people there. The guys there where Conrad Dobler (his wife is paralyzed and a wonderful woman). Bob Gibson was there and he was cool as hell. Split was there, but the highlight for me was definetely hanging out with Brett. I got there about 45 minutes before it started to check out the auction stuff etc...and I looked over and George was sitting there talking to Dave Stewart (who was the MC). I'd heard he could be a jerk, but I figured what the hell and went over, shook his hand, and introduced myself (called him Mr. Brett) and thanked him for doing this (I have a paralyzed family member). He was just as cool as can be, shook my hand, told me to sit down, and call him George. In my mind I'm thinking "OK I'm going to just kill some time and shoot the shit with George Brett." Me, him, and Stewart just sat there talking for at least a half hour just being boys. He introduced me to his wife and just was super cool. Even asked his wife to please go get us a couple beers. What really blew me away was that a few months later at his restuarant on opening day at breakfast I came in with some folks and he walked right up, remembered my name, shook my hand, asked how I'd been etc..Lucky for me I had just started dating the girl I brought with me. Girls seem to be pretty impressed with shit like that. They where trembling in awe just like I was the first time we met and him and I are shooting the shit like old buddies.

Saw him about a year later.......no f**king idea who I was :)

One time like three years ago I taught Buffalo Bills RB Xavier Omon how to use chopsticks at the student union food court.

Also, I got Nick Lowry's autograph once at a Price Chopper.

And I saw some Royals at a Royals Caravan stop here in Maryville.

And I met Bret Hart and the Undertaker at the airport many years ago.

My favorite one, though, was in Chicago last summer: I was on the third floor of the NikeTown store on Michigan Ave. looking at the of the sneakers on sale. I look to my left at the person next to me, and sure enough LeBron fucking James was looking for shoes, too. We barely got a few words in before one of his handlers was like "There's a bunch of people coming up the stairs; they spotted you." And he had to prepare for the rush.

I've been lucky to meet more pro athletes than I'm willing to take the time to type out. Most have been very generous with their time, others were assholes.

But my favorite story regarding a pro athlete was the time I got caught fucking Kevin Appier's nanny - in his house. He had given us tickets to the game - he had pitched the night before, and asked if we would head back to the house to walk the dogs - he was going out with the guys - the wife and kids were out of town.

So we get back and for some reason, just start tearing each others clothes off. 15 minutes into it, he comes strolling in - he had changed his mind and just wanted to veg out at home.

Granted, we were dating at the time, and he was completely cool about it. (the kids weren't in the house, BTW)

He was a cool dude. Any time we wanted tickets, we had them. We were always welcome at the house - even after he caught us doing circus tricks on his rug.

A few of my more memorable meetings

Neil Smith at a radio show here in St Joe at Brian Washington's restaurant(he advertised with us so I got to stick around for a drink afterwards with them) anyhow Brian introduces us and Neil says something like ,"how ya doin' Joe" and then proceeds to give me a small punch to the gut which literally had me gasping ,dude did not know his own strength.

Lamar Hunt at Arrowhead's 40th Anniversary Red Friday.he was walking away on the other side of a fence and I got his attention and he took the time to turn around walk towards us,thank us for attending and then signed my 40th commemorative t-shirt.

Len Dawson at Chiefs training camp,we visited for a couple of minutes and he gave me some shit about having to ask his manager if it was okay to sign my Chiefs helmet(kidding of course) then he signed it,really great guy.

Priest Holmes at Chiefs kick-off luncheon,got his autograph and a picture with him.

Harry Carsons fromer Giant player on the eve of Super Bowl XXII in San Diego he made a comment about a Redskins hat I was wearing,he hated them and then shook my hand.

Bobby Bell at a Chiefs tailgate party.

Eric Warfield at a post game party for the Omaha Beef. He did the coin toss. Talked to him for about 10 minutes, he was actually very cool and likeable.

Len Dawson at a Chiefs game. My wife won me tickets to the Christmas Eve game against the Seahawks in like 1994 or 95 I think. Got my picture with him. He was really nice.

Various ex-Huskers. I work with Todd Millikan, former Husker tight end back in the 80's. He played with Neil Smith, and has some pretty funny stories about him. He was drafted by the Bears, but blew out his knee in training camp and that was it for him. Probably the nicest guy I've ever met, and he looks like he could still play.

My parents ran into Marcus Allen at a hotel bar one time. He was apparently very nice, and offered to sign something for them. They didn't have anything so he signed a cocktail napkin.

It sucks that you got your hopes up I guess, but the fact that Allen was appearing at this camp and signing stuff for the kids makes it sound like he's not that bad a guy. I imagine there has to be a time when enough is enough or kids will have him signing everything they own.

My parents got me Billy Martin's autograph the same way when Martin was a player. It was at a KC night club called Eddie's. It was the first time I heard the expression "Godspeed".

I worked for a company that had courtside seats for the Miami Heat. The TV commentators were right in front of the seats. There were usually VIP's sitting at a empty scorers table next to the TV crew. A-Rod sat there during one game. My son (probably 12-13 at the time) went up and shook his hand. He asked him his name and talked to him for close to five minutes, with A-Rod asking him questions. Seemed to be a fairly nice guy. Son didn't ask for an autograph, was probably too nervous.

Another time while sitting in the same seats, Jacques Vaughn was playing for Orlando. At the end of the game, he looked at me and tugged at his jersey (I was wearing a Jayhawks shooting jersey with a huge logo on it). He came over to the table to do a TV interview, so we talked for a brief minute and he signed my ticket.

Used to go to Baltimore Orioles Spring Training in FT Lauderdale every year, just because it was down the road from the house. Most were great signing autographs for kids. Jim Palmer was kind of an ass, considering there were probably less than 10 people looking for autographs, but he did sign.

Now I'm sure we've all heard stories about him, but this one is funny. I know a girl that just loves black guys. Won't give a white guy a chance and she really likes athletes. Dante was f**king her, but as dumb as she is she thinks their dating. Dante went to Oak Park Mall and was walking around trying to get noticed. He saw a really hot girl and went up and tried hitting on her. She asked "how is Sara?" He's like "Sara who, what you talkin bout girl?" She said "the girl that is at your house right now." He still tried to play it off until she said "uh she's my sister." He turned around and just walked away.

I've never understood these girls that just throw themselves at these guys but whatever. You would think they'd figure out they're just these guys cum buckets.

I still remember one time my friends and I waited for emil brown after the game to get a picture and autographs. (one of my friends was obsessed with him cause he had the same last name as her) but he was all hesitant cause he wanted to leave and we finally got him to get out of his car and take a picture and get an autograph. I could care less but it was funny after he got in the car he stopped down the parking lot some and 3 blondes jumped in his car and he winked at us.

Fucking whore

I dont think I consider him a "pro athlete" because what he does is staged. So could you define pro athlete for me to give me a better look at what is a pro athlete, and what is not?
A pro wrestler's profession is to be athletic. The perform feats of athleticism every night. For money.

haha. Sometimes I wonder about professional players lives outside of sports. Even if they suck or arent very good like Emil Brown they manage to surprise me.

So basically any person that is athletic is a pro athlete? Is this what you are saying?

Are they getting paid for being athletic?

Oh so if they get paid to be athletic it makes them a pro athlete. I see how it is now.

I know, he had LJ gear on and a bunch of chains and necklaces like he was ready to go clubbin and bang the random sluts later.

Money talks i guess, even if you suck as a sports player

I ate lunch with Bob Feller once. He was nice, but all he wanted to talk about was how he could still throw a baseball over that mountain.

I met Ana Ivanovic last month at the Paribas Open. Through a couple of connections, I was able to basically work security during her autograph signings. She was super nice, and very HOT!

Did the same thing with James Blake and he too was very nice.

Met Anna Kournikova after she collided into me while walking to a practice court in Montreal. Was very appologetic and gave a couple of autographs.

Spoke with Maria Sharapova on the phone. Long story, but I still have her cell phone number just in case I ever figure out a way to make a celebrity fall in love with a random guy over the phone.

My Dad met Andre Agassi and Steffi Graff on the beach just a mile from my house, and both were incredibly nice.

Met Dennis Green in the elevator at the Mariott in KC. Extremely nice and chatty.

Met Kasim Osgood a few times as we have a mutual friend.

Ran into Chuck Lidell multiple times while going to school in San Luis Obispo. That guy loved hitting up bars and college house parties.

Chatted Briefly with Tiger Woods' Mom at the Buick Open a couple of years ago in San Diego.

saw Vaughn Booker walking out of a Price Chopper with a huge 36-roll pack of toilet paper thrown over each shoulder...got into a big ghetto van with the license plate "BOOKA 99"

saw Dante Hall in the parking lot at the Adam's Mark/Clarion across from Arrowhead before he was Dante Hall...guy walked right past my dad and I and we didn't really notice right away, then turned around, realized who it was, then marveled at his shortness....

not a sports star, but met Brandon Boyd of Incubus while he was taking a bike ride before a show in Indy two summers ago...stopped and talked to us (mostly because my buddy intentionally walked to the center of the path to block him) and he's a really nice guy...he talked to us for about 10 minutes, snapped a few pictures with us and biked on.....

also met and talked to the guys from the band Silvertide...Walt was goofy, Nick was stoned out of his mind, Mark didn't talk, Brian just drank, and Kevin the drummer was the coolest of them all...talked to him specifically for about 15 minutes about music and being a drummer (my dad, my two younger brothers, and myself are all drummers)...coolest part was I saw him again at an autograph signing after one of their shows about a year later and he remembered me as soon as he saw me...

my cousin, Adam Seward, is a linebacker for the Panthers...so obviously I've met him

Bill Wennington, who won 3 NBA championships with the Bulls in the Jordan era, frequently comes into my Starbucks, orders a triple venti mocha and plays World of Warcraft for a couple hours on his laptop...

I think that's about it....besides a bunch of Chiefs players at numerous training camps

Was picking up tickets at the will call window at the K in the 80's, turned around and saw Sparky Anderson getting out of a cab. Shook hands and told him good luck tonight. (he was with the Tigers)

Took the stadium tour of the old Busch in the early 90's. We were in the Cards dugout, and I saw someone sitting on a folding chair up against the backstop behind home. This was about 5 hours before game time, and the guy was in baseball pants and cleats, with just a t-shirt on. I walked over and saw that it was Bobby Cox, as the Braves were in town. I shook his hand and wished him luck that night. His hand was all gnarled up like raw meat, and huge!

Let's see...once nailed a Chiefs players girlfriend in Lawrence, drove her and his customized, expensive German convertible back to KC, and then proceeded to get filthy stinking drunk with him and another player at the Hurricane until close on Saturday night/Sunday morning - during the season, game day. I marveled that they two of them could stand up, let alone play the game on Sunday.

Dated a girl whose parents lived next to Marty. Went to a couple of BBQs over there with her.

Mike Bell used to show up at our neighborhood's annual pig roast.

Partied with Tim Hardaway (and Naomi Campbell, but she's not necessarily a pro athlete, thus the parentheses) in the VIP room of the Crobar Club in South Beach one night.

Hung out with Joe Morgan (Reds, Fox Sports, Baseball Hall of Fame) for an afternoon.

There are others, but in all honesty, they are just people with a particular job. No better or significant than the guy picking up your trash on Tuesday morning. No reason to pedestal them for getting paid to play a kids game.

Oh, and whoever got in a fight with the Bad Company singer - nice job. One of the girls I dated ended up "dating" him for a while back in the early '90s. I heard he was a douchebag. But then, she turned out to be worthy of selection as a contestant on the Rock of Love Bus Show, so who knows.
