I've never met a popular celebrity. Most celebrities don't hang around northern Wisconsin or da U.P.

George Thoroughgood, we sat next to each other at a Red Sox game and made fun of the Texas Ranger fan sitting in front of us.

I might get to meet somebody this year, although I dont know if the individual would be classified as a "celebrity" by most people's terms.

I guess if a sports figure is a celebrity then John Daly...............he was a riot because he was drunk all the time and liked to eat hot wings.

They're still writing, recording and touring and they're still a big name. And Berlin played with the Blasters, X, and the Flesheaters. That makes 'em celebrities in my book.

I keep info about celeb contact confidential. That's how I can maintain trusted friendships.

Maury Povich and Connie Chung, Howie Long, Phil Jackson, Jack Hanna, Johnny Depp, Shaq and Eric McCormack all have places around where I live or are frequent visitors. I'm pretty sure there's more, just can't think of them right now.
