  • Mel Gibson - I go to Second City every time I visit Chicago. The skits are hilarious. I was pulled out of the audience to participate and was gestured toward stage right when the skit was over. The sidewings were very dark compared to the bright lights on stage and I was totally blind. I tripped on something and fell hard into someone. A good-natured voice that I recognized and couldn't place told me to "Watch where you are going $%#*#$&." I got back to my seat and put two and two together when Mel Gibson came out for some improv. He is much shorter than I expected.

  • Ron Guidry - I was a police officer in Coral Springs, Florida. It was the spring of 1987. I pulled over a car for speeding. It was Ron Guidry, late for a spring training game or practice. Being a huge Yankee fan I let him go with a warning. He was very nice to me and polite. Just a few days later I was patroling an apartment complex and was flagged down. The same Ron Guidry needed a jump start for his car. I obliged him and the next day there was an envelope at the station for me with 4 tickets to a spring training game. He was always one of my favorite Yankees.

  • Richard Petty - I have a special edition Dodge Motorsport pickup and from the time I bought it I thought it would be really great if I could get Richard Petty to sign the dash. I drove it to North Carolina From my home in Pa. on vacation and finally caught up with him at the Petty race shop. Not only did he sign but he spent time with me and was very nice. I have always hoped that I could meet him and when I did he lived up to the image I had of him.

  • Loretta Lynn - Back in the early '90s I was shopping in the local Piggly Wiggly... I turned to let a lady skip in front of me because she only had a few items... To my much appreciated glance it was Loretta Lynn.

  • Johnny Carson - I was standing outside of the Brown Derby and Johnny Carson drove up. I said, "It looks like it's going to be a nice day". He said, "What POSSIBLE difference could that make to YOU?" What a guy. Always with a joke.

  • Joe DiMaggio - In November of 1991, I had to fly from San Francisco to Philadelphia for some training on some new point-of-sale equipment. While waiting for my luggage, I noticed a distinguished gentleman who looked familiar surrounded by a small group of people. After the crowd cleared, I recognized the man as Joltin' Joe himself. I smiled at him and nodded and he did the same to me. I had heard he was a very private man who really didn't like to be bothered. A few months later I was at the Presidio Golf Club installing the equipment and who came in and sat at the bar but....Joltin' Joe! He looked at me with a puzzled gaze as if he recognized me from somewhere. I said "Philadelphia, waiting for luggage, Mr. DiMaggio." He snapped his fingers, said "That's it!" He sipped his drink in silence and left. After that, while on service calls at the club, I would often see Mr. DiMaggio, usually sitting by himself. He never failed to smile and say hello. The last time I saw him was a few years before he passed away. He had finished his drink and left the empty glass and bar napkin on the counter. As I got ready to leave, the bartender handed me the napkin and said, "Joe told me to give this to you." On the napkin was his autograph with the inscription, "I know you were too respective of my privacy to ask for this." WOW!
