Because of the nature & location of my business, I occasionally have entertainment, sports & political celebrities as customers. In the past 3 years alone, I have had the pleasure of doing business with people such as John McCain, Bart Starr, Gilbert Brown, Jerry Kramer, Gene Keady, Zeke Bratkowski, John Brockington, Marv Fleming, Ronnie Brown, Rickey Williams, Chief Justice Shirley Abrahmson, Stacey Keach, Melissa Gilbert, Molly Ringwald, BB King, MC Hammer, Rush Limbaugh, Cris Collinsworth, Darrell Bevell, DeAndre Levy, Colt McCoy, Max McGee's widow & Brad Childress' wife. There are more, but you get the picture.

However, this past weekend's celebrity encounter probably tops 'em all. One of my customers was the infamous, notorious Ron Jeremy. For those of you who don't know who that is, you'll have to google him. Needless to say, I was somewhat blown away (metaphorically) by his presence in my place of business. Actually had him as a customer twice in 24 hours. Caused quite a ruckus around here. He was in the Fox Valley to emcee an event at a local gentlemen's club. Very polite & engaging in person. Got his autograph, etc.

Thought it would be interesting to hear from other posters about their past encounters with celebrities from any walk of life. Who, when, where, & the circumstances, etc.

Andy North before the Ohio St/Wisconsin game this year. Called him over when he was on the sideline and he was kind enough to take a picture with me. Very nice guy!

That same game I was standing by Erin Andrews where she was getting ready, I asked for a pic and she said BUT she called me hunnie. Yeah she wanted me [8D].

My friends met Paully from Jersey Shore when he was shopping in Kenosha the day before his concert in Milwaukee.

Nick Barnett rode my bike twice as did Corey Williams, Ahman Green, Greg Jennings and one other player.

Didnt Pinetar talk to Travis Diener or something when he was super drunk?

At the Sports Card shop in Waukesha, there was a 2ish year stretch of the owner bringing in Packer Legends for autograph signings. Off the top of my head I can remember meeting Jerry Kramer, Max McGee, Fuzzy Thurston, Forrest Gregg, Willie Davis, Willie Wood, Herb Adderly, Paul Hornung. I'm sure there was a couple more but those are the ones I remember. If this thread is still bumped this weekend I'll look at the autographs and list all of them.

I also met Donald Driver my freshman year of high school. Extremely nice man.

And this year, the week after the Bears game Nick Collins was at Waukesha South for the football game. Another nice guy, shook hands and took pictures with pretty much everyone who wanted to.

One day when we were at the old Rainbow Falls, Johnny Gray was there. We got his autograph and he seemed like a very nice guy.

Also, last year I did a paper on why college athletes should be paid. I wrote to a couple guys from the badger football team asking questions. A couple guys responded, Curt Phillips and 2 other guys. The best though was JJ Watt. He was awesome. We had a whole conversation talking about what he does on a normally week and how many hours he spends with football and homework and how the scholarships work out.

Ah, forgot one. Daniel Tosh performed just before he blew up two years ago at Oshkosh. He was really nice. He performed for almost two hours, when he was only contracted for 1 hour. He then sat outside the gym and took pictures and signed autographs for another hour +. He was a lot like he is on Tosh.0, real sarcastic, but funny and he really seemed to enjoy being around his fans.

He's gonna be at Silk Exotic soon according to the radio.

I once told Josh Homme of Queens of The Stone Age to "enjoy his food" after a show at Oneida Casino.

I've had quite a few sports encounters over the years, but nothing too special.

Well, let's see here:
Nearly ran over WWE wrestler Hornswoggle at an independant wrestling show in Oshkosh last summer (09). I'm not a big dude by any means, but I didn't even realize he was there until I was within a foot of him. My buddy that wrestled at the show said he was an incredibly nice guy and was actually helping them set a flow for the show. Saw him autographing some items for the kids that realized he was there.

Then where I work, just within the last month or so I've seen former Packer Gilbert Brown, and actor Jesse Metcalf (I guess he was in Desperate Housewives or something) along with his incredibly hot wife/girlfriend/"business parter"/whatever. I've also heard that Ron Dayne stops in every once in a while, but haven't seen him. And as I understand it, country singer Charlie Pride used to come in quite often when he was in town, haven't seen him either. That's about it I think.

I will not apologize for being awesome.

I helped both Ron Dayne and Aaron Stecker when I worked at Best Buy. Helped Brian Butch and Joe Krabbenhoft when I worked at Blockbuster. The greatest moment of my life was meeting Brian McBride at an autograph session. And my cousin was in Jackass.
If you were right, I'd agree with you
