  1. Maybe you are on to something, maybe not. LOL But talk it over with SoFla he seems to like the game clue. But maybe it was Colonel Mustard in the Library with the candlestick SoFla. LOL
  2. Doesnt it say something about the state of baseball when we would have to ask that question. I asked someone that same question yesterday SoFla lol. I think everyone looks at baseball these days for what it is business as usual no big deal. Not sure if he did either as i am like you dont care what he does.
  3. Thanks. I have heard Ron Guidry is a real nice guy on more than one occasion. I'm sorry about how that other fool acted. Like Jetcane said all famous people arent jerks just the ones who are too full of themselves I think.
  4. Thanks Jetcane appreciate it. I have met Two famous people who is a class act and he has my respect that would be Curtis Martin. And one of the nicest guys you want to talk to is Bryan Cox.
  5. Hey All, Taking the kids to cooperstown this weekend! Cant wait. I know 2 other families other than mine going. So was wondering if anyone from jetnation will be there. And how is it? I've never been. Any good restaurants in town? Thanks Lantern
  6. What would it solve Bob aside from curiosity. Young fans of the person might read it and there whole perception of that person would be changed so I choose to take the high road. Because having dreams is what makes life tolerable. Hope that is understandable. I would rather hear about others stories about famous people they have met good or bad. That is what this thread is about. Sincerly Lantern
  7. Like I said everyone has to make their own opinion of people. I will not burst a little kids balloon even if someone else will.
  8. I will neither confirm nor deny the speculation. Maybe it has not been guessed yet?
  9. Very good attention to detail Verde. Here is my reason, Everyone in this world has to have their own opinion of people. And a young fan might read it and their whole perception of that person would be influenced so I chose to take the high road. Hope that is understandable. Sincerly Lantern
  10. Thought I would share it. SoFla. It was time. And in my own way. Thanks for the sympathy. Appreciate it.
  11. Have you ever met a famous person you admired? If so tell your story. Here is mine. My family and I recently had the chance to meet a famous person we admired for a long time. The trip cost us approximately $1400 for the week. We were basically relegated to eating fast food and early rises and late finishes all week while still completing our committments to our regular jobs ie the midnight shifts. Very hectic week to say the least. So we go to this organized event and wait and wait for three hours in the blazing hot sun for a chance for my three children to get an autograph each from this person and when this person walks over a female cuts in front of my kids to get a autograph picture signed which she gets. My son who is three years old goes up to this person and hands them and item to be signed, the person takes the item from my son and exclaims, "This is dirty pool! You probabally dont even know why you want this, its probabally for someone else". PRETENDS to sign the item hand it back to my son and drive away and exclaim while they are driving away, "NO AUTOGRAPHS". My three year old turns the item over and there is no autograph on it and starts crying. So that night my wife and I call and complain to the director of the organized event and demand an apology from this person. We schedule a meeting the next day so, "everything can be worked out". We show up and this famous person did not even show up to apologize to three little kids, What a coward. The director apologized to us. And I told him we appreciate your apology very much but this person should be here to apologize. He agreed and offered to get the kids three autographs and I told him that is very nice but the reason we are here is not about the autographs its because of the assanine act by this person and we want an apology, not for us but for our children. He said, "We'll do our best". So he takes our cell phone number and says he will get back to us. Now at the end of the week no call yet. So we ask him, "Whats up"? He then tells us the person remembers the incident and it may take a couple of weeks to get an apology letter and the three autographs. Now we are waiting for this. The autographs will go in the trash as I will not let my children keep them. We are not fans of this person anymore. But hopefully this person has the class to write the letter themselves and not rubber stamp it. But we are not holding our breath. As for me, I am an average guy who is a self made man. I dont want a thing from anyone. And if I were famous and someone wanted an autograph from me. I dont care if I have signed a million autographs in my lifetime. I would sign it especially for kids. Famous peoples celebrity have brought them alot of accolades and perks in their life from their fame and I couldnt imagine looking at signing autographs as menial charity especially for kids. Now also if I were famous and someone wanted my autograph I would be flattered and honored. This person looked at it like a bad thing. And to be honest with you all I was very hurt by this persons actions not for myself but for my children. They learned a hard lesson about life at a very young age that people aren't what you think they are. And famous people dont deserve to be put up on a pedastil we put them on. And this person MOST CERTAINLY doesnt. As for my kids they got an autograph that day on each of their items that read simply "Daddy loves you". I hope it is better in their eyes than the one they wanted. Sincerly Lantern
