    I got to meet the Richard Hatch at Megacon once. I asked him if he played as Starbuck, which made me feel dumb but then he corrected me with no problem. I got to talk to him about stuff, like this project (forgot the name sorry) he's on that he was really excited for. We talked about this project and the creative thinking behind it. He acted like a kid in a candy store when he was talking about it. I wished him luck and I went on my merry way checking out other things at the 'con.

    Then I played a live action game of Paranoia.

    I met Dale Earnhardt at the GM Parts plant in Dravosburg, Pa in like 97. I also met Richard Petty in 93. Couple other NASCAR drivers here and there. I yelled at that survivor chick who married that other survivor Boston Rob at a concert one time. I met Former Colorado Rockies Dante Bichette and Andres Gallaraga. Hmm. Pittsburgh Penguins Ryan Malone, Sergei Gonchar and Josef Melichar. Former Steelers Dermontti Dawson and Bryan Hinkle. Some dude from Days of Our Lives. Ohh and Triple H and Mankind. We'll i didn;t actually meet them, but they wrestled right next to my seat in the crowd at a Monday Night Raw.I met The Fabulous Moula. And I met a guy that looks exactly like Hulk Hogan.

    I met a woman named Rory Zuckerman when I was a kid and got her autograph. She used to host this sing-along/puppett show on TLC called Rory's Place (she writes childrens books as well).

    Okay... so she's not famous, but that's the closest I ever got to meeting a "famous person".

    At the moment, I would honestly love to meet Patricia Arquette and her TV Husband, Jake Weber.

    I met Lacey Chabert when she was doing promo work for a movie. And I also met John Cena in New Orleans while they were filming "12 Rounds." He had really bad breath, but, hey, I met John Cena.:thumb  Ashley Scott wasn't on set that day...:(  Also met a guy named Gary Grubbs. He's been in so many movies, it's crazy. He was the Bullet on the OC, he was in Deja Vu, Runaway Jury, etc. He came and gave a lecture at my school.

    Probably not famous, but I met an actor by name of Patrick Gorman. He starred in the 1993 film Gettysburg, and my family happened to meet him when he was participating in the reenactment of the battle(s) at Gettysburg back when I was in middle school, roughly 7th grade or so.

    I remember my mom getting him to sign his autograph on a photo of him in his role as Major General John Bell Hood, and when he saw me, he asked, "Little lady, would you like to have a picture taken with me?" I was quite surprised, to say the very least.

    Mr. T at a comic book store years ago. I was an extra in the movie Next Karate Kid, so I met Hillary Swank, Pat Morita, and Michael Ironside. Ironside btw was ridiculously nice. Those are people I've actually met, shook hands, and spoke with. I've seen other celebrities but never spoke or met them.

    Hulk Hogan, Randy the Macho Man Savage, and The Rock used to shop at Electronics Boutique I worked at and I talked to them quite a bit. In fact, I met Hogan's whole family, which is funny because they were pretty young compare to that reality show they have. Hogan once threatened to bust the back door down to get a game he reserved, thinking that since it came out the next day that it would be in stock already. I would have snuck him one if we actually did have it.

    I also met an assortment of video game bigwigs at E3's.

    I met Neil Halstead, the creative mind, singer and songwriter behind the 1990's band Slowdive (and also current band Mojave 3). Saw him perform solo last month and after the show he was outside the pub having a smoke by himself. Got to talk to him for a good long bit and probably gushed a little more than I should have, but he's a musical idol to me so I couldn't help myself.

    I also met Mirah after one of her shows and my wife got to perform on stage with her.

    And yes, I can hear the collective "Who??" :p
