    Adonis Stevenson used to text me and ask me to hang out all the time. He'd send me pics of him driving down the beach in a convertible and text things like, "let's get some white women in the back seat". It was pretty funny, but also weird that he'd message me so much. Not sure if he's in a coma still or not, but he was a genuinely good dude.

    Man, I tried. I was definitely spaced out due to her hotness zone for a few minutes, but once I started paying attention to the words coming out of her mouth that died like a deflating balloon.

    He seems like a pretty good guy based on various seasons of Hard Knocks I’ve watched him on.

    Hayden Pantierre's boyfriend went to a nearby high school. She came with him to our Wednesday night bowling league one time. After that he probably beat her (he's a POS). Surprisingly, she was really nice and sweet Not friends, but that's the closest I've been to a celebrity. "She actually talked to me man."

    I had a group project with CJ Spiller in College. After that, I would see him on campus sometimes and he would say what's up to me. I felt pretty cool, especially if there were hot girls around.

    Yeah, it's weak, but that's what I got.

    Not sure I would call him a celebrity but the Minnesota Twins President/CEO is a friend I have known for over 40 years. His family lived about 5 blocks from mine on the same street. We went to different High Schools and both went to UND for college.

    was buddies with Mark Sanchez in college, very cool/humble guy at the time. Got free EA Sports games from him thanks to his Elite 11 work.

    Got Mike Dunleavy's son into a fantasy basketball league at SC and he took 2 Clippers and his brother with his first 3 picks and realized quickly he wasn't worth the spot. I think he ended up being one of the 2 guys Jonathan Martin (Stanford/Dolphins OL) sent those gun pictures to so maybe it's for the best I didn't know him that well, I think he's a sports agent now.

    Used to run free youth football camps for an agent in Atlanta, who Ernie signed with. Our guest at the camp one of those years, was T Pain (amazing with the kids, but pretty sure that was partly because he was high AF).

    Have shared lots of stories on here over the years, so I won’t douche it up by repeating myself. Have about a dozen ‘famous’ people in my phone, but the only ones who I stay in semi-regular contact with are Carl Lawson (Bengals), Peyton Barber (Washington), Vincent D’Onofrio, and Ethan Hawke.

    I see Art Briles, Greg Norman, Chuck Woolery, & Dennis Franchioni at the post office pretty regularly (Art not in a while)

    Art is the only one I talk to, I think he thinks he knows me from somewhere else cause he goes out of his way to say hi

    Not friends but worked with a bunch directly.

    Produced for a radio show where I would have to talk with Tommie Frazier of Nebraska glory every single week. Randomly my brother’s father in law (and my brother) drinks with him at a dive bar a lot so my brother’s oldest daughter is maybe one of like 3 people in the state of Nebraska that has a photo with Frazier and his daughter (he famously hates photos & doesn’t take them with kids).

    I was an intern for the Portland Timbers/Thorns one season and would have to video and interact (let’s be honest, not get in the way) with USWNT players Alex Morgan, Tobin Heath, Allie Long & Canadian great/one of best ever Christine Sinclair.

    As en extension dealt with a couple stars of MLS Diego Valeri, Diego Chara, and former USMNT player Darlington Nagbe (all 3 were as nice of people as you can expect, easy guys to actually root for) almost everyday for training.

    Was a pretty cool gig and as a result dealt with directly or indirectly most of the biggest names in US soccer for a season since I had all-access being the ‘camera’ guy. It’s weird being a nobody but being able to go wherever the hell I wanted because of team-broadcasting credentials.

    This doesn't really count because I haven't spoken to him in 15 years, but it's all I have.

    I played travel baseball with Craig Kimbrel a bit in high school. I was a catcher and he threw gas with zero control. Each pitch could be at the batter's head or in the dirt outside. Also played against him and I was like 1 for 20.

    My wife has a friend who was in the same sorority as Ashley Judd at Kentucky.

    Apparently, they had some type of locker room shower set up there. After a few drinks, she likes to tell everyone how many times she’s seen Ashley Judd naked.
