I walked right by Joe Torre last year right after he left the yankees, he was at the wynn, also saw joakim noah there as well, and I always see pete rose at the overpriced and crappy Field of Dreams, charging people for autographs,

I've been pretty lucky in this area, I really don't care about meeting actors or socialites, but I like meeting athletes to see what they're like in real life...I work at a private club down here and I've seen a bunch of celebs and athletes over the years, everyone from President Clinton, to Timberlake to Cameron Diaz to Tom Brady to Ray Allen to Barry Bonds, most of them are really nice and as a Bills fan, I hat the fact that Tom Brady is such a nice guy!

Have played poker in Las Vegas against Redd Fox,Telly Savalas,David Brenner,Larry Holmes during his string of 20 successful heavyweight title defenses.Redd Fox was hilarious while playing poker having everyone in stitches at the table.He used to arrive late at night at the old MGM Grand(now Bally's) after completing his late night XXX rated show at The Hacienda.
I have a nice pictiure taken with Debbie Reynolds after meeting her in the restaurant of her casino she used to own on Convention center drive not too far from the Stardust.

I've run across to many to remember....Gary Payton (also lives in Area 10), Orel Hershiser (always at the Red Rock), George Wallace (riding alongside of us on Trop), Kevin Garnett (at the next table inside JET), Scott Thompson AKA Carrot Top, Morris Day (lives in the Lakes), Phil Ivey & Rhino Page (at the same crap table at RR), Shane Mosley (at Tao), Randall Cunningham (at church).....

Just got back and didn't see anybody...had a layover in LA and saw Gary Marshall planning to shoot a movie in the airport. Other than that...saw Mark Madsen in the Minneapolis airport. Maybe just didn't look in the right places...oh well, next time maybe.

Ran into Bruce Willis at the Golden Nugget . He was moving back and forth from craps to blackjack. Apparently he was in some kind of musical group that was performing there.

A friend and I were walking through Cesars coutyard and lemo pulled up. No one within 100 yards of us...we stopped to see who got out. It was Jack Nickalson and two hot babes and giant body guard. He shook our hands and introduced himselp and asked if we were going to the fight which we were. It was Tyson and Forman fighting on a twin billing. He couldnt have been any nicer. It was cool. We walked into the casino on the red carpet with him and about half way through a security guy in a suit stopped us and said to step over the rope. it was cool havin all those people starin at our drunk fools trying to figure out who the hell we were. Both fight lasted two rounds or less but it was fun.

Arrived in airport same time as 76ers back in late 80's when they were playing first NBA exhibition game ever in Vegas . Played craps in Mirage with Manute Bol . Hilarious . Top of table was about 2" below his knees . Funniest sight I've seen to this day . Dealers couldn't quit laughing at him . He was in center of table and when he bent over to roll dice he could almost reach other end . He'd throw the dice about a foot to bounce off wall then start laughing . Everyone at table was breaking up .
