My father did some plumbing work for the brother of the Nancy Kerrigan, the Figure Skating Champion who got clubbed right in the kneecap. Weird Al mentioned her in "Headline News", and I guess you could say I'm pretty close with Weird Al.

Also, my dad went to a wedding where all of the Bobby Orr era Bruins attended as well.
I'm certainly no where near the level of Al, but I make comedy sketches/parodies/vlogs on my YouTube account if you would want to possibly check them out. I will buy you a donut if you do.

I know a guy who sold windows to Paul Tagliabue.
I went to the high school that fired Vince Papale from coaching track before he became an Eagle. Also, Krissi from Masterchef season 4 went there too. (She's two years younger than me.)
My former next door neighbor had Ty Burrell as an acting professor whilst a student at Penn State.
A friend of mine fetched coffee for Robert DeNiro once.

I once told Andy Dick I liked his work on The Ben Stiller Show.

TJ Miller gave me an autographed bottle of Evian Facial Spray.

Barack Obama waved at me following his third and final speech at CU Boulder during the 2012 campaign (and yes, I also attended the first two).

Some of you know already know this story, but I rode a horse that was in the movie "Jeremiah Johnson", so yeah, first celeb I met was not human. :P I think I was 12. We went to Utah on a family vacation, and went to a stables where Robert Redford used to ride. My brother was 6 and remembers very little about the trip. His horse was in the movie, too, and was far more famous, having done lots of Westerns. His name was Old Joe. This song speaks to me. Thanks, Al!

4 words that Al said to me that blew me away:

"How's Problem Child doing?" - 7/12/11

So awesome!

I have had my picture taken with Moose, the dog who played Eddie on Fraiser.
I treated Tracy Morgan's Burmese python as well as one of his dogs.
Paul Newman once sat in one of my dad's race cars.
Peter Gallagher nearly knocked my friend and I down when we were in NYC. We called him a nasty name before going "Oh, that's the dad from the OC."
I have been pointedly ignored by both John Henry and Cigar.

It is funny how I remember more of them as I think about it.
To add to my list -
I met will.i.am on a business trip but didn't yet know who he was.
