My sister is a theater actress, she is quite famous in her area and some of her 'colleagues' are famous on TV. If that counts.

Johnny Unitas was one of the greatest quarterbacks of all time.

Great picture, Jimmy!

When I was in high school, us kids were pitching quarters to stoops on the Upped West Side in Manhattan. Tony Randell (Felix on “The Odd Couple,” took exception to this, and lectured us on the evils of gambling.

I am famous... You have all met me in here! :D

It's rather odd. If someone asks me if I know someone famous I go "No, I don't think I have met him/her".

I sometimes may see a celebrity and assume that I know them because with prosoprognosia I tend to look for familiar signs to identify people, and if I think I know the person from somewhere, I will assume I do and maybe say hello expecting them to know me, so I can try to pick up from their voice and their accent who they are. The funny thing is that I have gotton to know someone in this way who I thought I knew from somewhere but didn't know. I assumed he was a school teacher but I got the faces muddled up and found he was a local dignitary who I had seen his picture in our newspaper.

He believed that gambling leads to moral decrepitude and laxness.

He waved his finger at us, too.

Steve Allen was quite a tall man in his prime.

We just laughed at Tony Randall.

he was quite a virile man, however. fathered a kid in his 70s with a woman 1/3 his age. left her a widow, however.

I met James Rolfe (AVGN), he's really nice. I didn't expected him to be an introvert.

I also saw Chris Noth coming out of a broadway play once back when I was driving limos
