When I was a kid, we saw Kenny Rogers(the country singer not the baseball player) in an airport. I could have cared less but my mom was excited!
I was on an airplane once with Jay Leno. He'd done a show near me and was returning to California. This was pre-Tonight Show, of course. He was flying coach!
Tim McGraw grew up in a little town about 30 minutes from me. We went to the same college. Unfortunately, I never met him but he sang in some of the college bars I frequented. So, I saw him play when he was a nobody. Too bad I didn't really listen! One of my friends has a picture of us sitting at a table in one of the bars and he's on stage in the background.
We're big baseball fans. When Pudge Rodriguez played for the Texas Rangers, I'd sit and drool over him during the games we went to...especially if we were behind home plate! We arrived early for batting practice once and got to meet him. He hugged me and kissed the top of my head and shook my husband's hand. I floated the rest of the night and my husband rolled his eyes! That was actually before we were married! He teased me when Pudge was traded that I couldn't sit in the stands and stare at Pudge's butt anymore!
