I told you I’ve met everyone!  Hockey great Mario Lemieux was born today.  For as big of a star as he is, in many encounters with him, he has always been nice to me.  Thanks Mario and have a great birthday!

Also born today: actor Guy Pearce, actress Karen Allen, musician Bob Geldof and Ray Kroc, the founder of McDonalds.  Super size it!

Just when you thought I’ve met every rock star and celebrity on the planet, there’s a whole other arena that I’ve conquered:  sports! Up through the early 2000’s (aka “the closet steroid era of sports”), I’ve met a majority of living legends in boxing, hockey, basketball, football and baseball. Try and stereotype this gay dude!  But I digress.  It’s Hockey Hall of Famer Wayne Gretzky’s 50th birthday today, January 26, 2011!  For being as famous as he is, he sure is a nice guy!  I’ve met Wayne many times and no matter how mobbed he gets and there can be quite a crowd around him when he’s out and about, he’s always nice to fans!  Love that!  Happy birthday Wayne!
