Anybody that visits this forum famous? Somewhat famous? Okay, is anyone that visits this forum known (recognized) by more than 500 people?

Click all that apply, we'll see how famous we are as a group.

Also, post why you think you might qualify for the "most famous" (even if that means not really famous at all) RedsZoner.

I just did a google search for my name and found someone else out there with my exact name. My name isn't very common at all so to see someone else out there with it is kinda freaky.

But in general, except in the vast empire in my brain, I am not famous.

1- My livejournal account comes up as the first search. My full name is odd.
2- Sports
3- spoke at college commencement because of role at University.


Nothing famous by any stretch though.

Wheelhouse is an actor and was on at least one episode of Law and Order as a character who killed a woman named Boone. I don't think he really had to get too much into character for that role. :lol: Wally Post is a professional drummer and has played with Joan Osbourne among others. M2 and WOY got an article about the Reds published in Baseball Prospectus about 3-4 years ago. Marc Lancaster is a RedsZoner.

I won a NKOTB look-alike and dance-alike contest in 1990. (Jon Knight, mullet and all.) I signed autographs for about a hundred 12 year olds after the contest.

I had a short story published in a Lawrence, KS humor journal back in college (I forgot to mark that).

There was a blurb about my web site (www.spitter.com) in an issue of ESPN: The Magazine back in 2000. Griffey was on the cover; I have a framed copy on my wall.

I was on a "Quiz Bowl" show back in junior high. My team (me and three kids who were at least two years younger than me) took second.

That's where my TV appearance came in as well. I was on "High-Q", a local high school quiz show, when I was a high school senior.

I've had a short story published, and maybe a couple of other things. I also used to (very briefly) be a local sportswriter, so the newspaper thing's automatic.

My industry loves to shower itself with awards, and I've won my share of them. As a result, I have good name recognition around the country, and I've been featured in a number of trade magazines and a handful of books. Thanks to that exposure, I've been asked to do a little bit of speaking and that sort of thing.

Outside of my industry, I'm primarily known as "the guy who drives around with his blinker on."

This one was called "Kid-Q". The cutoff age was 13, so it was mostly eighth graders like myself, plus my 11 year old teammates (whom I think answered a total of 2 questions throughout the tournament). The questions were just as hard as High-Q -- "What organelle is responsible for digestion within animal cells?". The prize was a trip to the local water park.

We lost by one question to Jackson, Ohio. I don't remember the question, but the answer was "Pilgrim's Progress". I still remember the way the girl (the only person on their team who answered any questions) spit out the words. The exact question had been asked during warm-ups, and our team just plain froze when they asked it again.

I talked to Sam Waterston for about an hour once. I was pretty drunk and it was still one of the most fascinating conversations I've ever had. He is VERY smart, a great conversationalist, a very curious and genuine guy, and is actually somebody who still has great passion and belief in what he does after years and years in what can be a messy business.

He's aging, though. You really see it in his face and his breathing up close.

He also has a daughter who acts, Elisabeth, she's very nice as well.

El Guapo: Jefe, what is a plethora?
Jefe: Why, El Guapo?
El Guapo: Well, you just told me that I had a plethora, and I would just like to know if you know what it means to have a plethora. I would not like to think that someone would tell someone else he has a plethora, and then find out that that person has *no idea* what it means to have a plethora.
Jefe: El Guapo, I know that I, Jefe, do not have your superior intellect and education, but could it be that once again, you are angry at something else, and are looking to take it out on me?

My freshman year of college, I was rockin' the Jordan Knight "Mushroom Cloud" hairstyle until I worked as an usher for an NKOTB show.

I technically can be included in several of the caetgories mentioned in the poll, even though I am by no means "famous."
1. I did once sign several dozen autographs. Perhaps a dozen or more years ago I spoke at a career day at Genoa Elementary School. For some reason I was a "hit" with the students. One student came to get my autograph. The next thing I knew dozens of the kids had lined up behind him and I signed autographs for them all. I have no idea why I received that reaction, and it has never again happened.
2. I was on TV when I was about 6 years old, singing with a youth choir on a local religious program. Since then I have occasionally, not often, been on TV being interviewed about a pending legal matter. I have also been quoted in the local newspapers on legal matters.
3. I've technically been "published" in reported appellate cases in legal publications. For that matter, I've had the occasional letter to the editor published, including a letter published in the Wall Street Journal years ago.
4. My name is unusual, so if I "google it" it readily comes up, again for legal matters.
5. I once spoke at a political rally in front of the WV State Capitol. I don't know if 1000 people were present, but there were at least a few hundred.
6. Does meeting Chuck Yeager and getting his autograph and meeting Martina McBride and being photographed with her count?;)

I was the equipment manager for the UK BatCats in undergrad. I had to stay in the dug-out after the game to gather jackets, bats, etc. As I was leaving this 4 or 5 year old said, " Sir could I have your autograph?" I said sure! He had a piece of paper. I said, " no way, how about this?" And I pulled out a brandnew SEC baseball. I ask him his name and signed it to Austin. He said, " wow..thank-you and he hug me. I almost started to cry. I said, "hey kid wait a second." I pulled out another SEC baseball and I said, "will you sign my ball?" His eyes lit up and he said..."what's your name?" Swear to God!:laugh:

I keep that ball with all my other signed balls...for good luck!

If it weren't for vintage base ball, I could only check about one or two of these. I have given autographs before to kids while in uniform. That's always pretty neat even though they will probably throw it away. My picture has been in the Enquirer once or twice. I've been on TV from marching in the Opening Day parade and playing ball - and neither one is necessarily a skill. I've never been published - although that would be very cool. I don't think I've ever been in a national magazine although my picture has been taken so often I just might have by accident. I haven't played professionally, not even the few times I've played for the Red Stockings. ;) Speaking in front of 1,000 people would not be a good thing. I have trouble in front of a few. Thank goodness I've never done anything stupid enough to be notorious.

Let's see, what did I do back when I was younger and more interesting:

Published, yes. Worked for the sports department of a daily paper for a few years, part-time, just doing grunt editing work but I wrote a few things. I also published a few articles for fantasy baseball magazines about a decade ago.

Name on Google, barely. I go by my middle name, it's fairly common.

Featured in a local paper, yes. High school academics and, several years ago, I was writing an online rumor mill about college football recruiting. (This was when it was just starting to become a big business. I gave it up shortly thereafter, I wasn't doing it for money.) One of the state newspapers did a piece about recruiting and the Internet and I had some quotes in there.

On TV for talent, I did one of the high-school team quiz shows also. Forget what it was called.

Also did the college-DJ thing.

In other words, stuff that everyone but me and my parents has long since forgotten.

I was a college DJ too, at Kent State. For one semester, I even had the prime lunch-time shift, which was broadcast to all the dining halls. However, you could only pick up our station in the dorms and dining halls. No broadcast to the population at large. What with the transmitter for WKSU on campus (so strong you could hear it through the phones), it's unlikely our signal would have made it far anyway.

I used to come up high in web searches, back in the days when I designed web sites (In the early days of the WWW), but now that I'm out of that business, you're more likely to find listings from genealogy websites, as I have a fairly common first name and a fairly common last name among German immigrants. There is a hit for a coach for a Conference USA football team.

I won a contest once through the Baseball Hall of Fame. They actually "published" a few baseball-oriented haikus I submitted. I won a book of baseball poetry.

I could have tried out for the "Academic Challenge" team for my school, but I was already catching abuse from the football players for being a soccer player and didn't want to compound things by joining the "nerd squad." I regret that decision.

I once had an opportunity to host my own local radio talk show. Maybe 15 years ago I was representing a group that wanted to hold a rally on a local court house lawn. The County Commission had created a limited public forum, but then refused to give access to the forum to the group I represented based solely upon the content of their viewpoint. Anyway, I was able to secure access for the group, and received some publicity as a result.
A few weeks later I received a phone call from a local religious radio station, with an offer for me to host my own radio talk show. I declined. Not only did I not have the time to host a show, I had no wish to give daily voice to whatever opinions I might have over the radio. I knew that I would put my foot in my mouth in short order.

I am a semi-active professional athlete, but looking to become more active. Have signed autographs.

Have appeared in the local paper over time a few times, and over the Internet in similar stories.

My name is more common than I thought it was... I have a last name common in my geographic region but I wouldn't consider it a nationally common name. First name isn't super popular but not an odd name. Just didn't expect as many in Google results as there were, but I am in the midst often.

I, too, have been a radio DJ, and with a pretty decent listenership at times, though not top in the market or anything like that by any means (does this double up for me speaking in front of a 1000 at a time?)......

......Even if not, I technically have spoken in front of 1000 as that was about the amount of kids in school for an assembly in which I was a finalist in the 5th grade spelling bee. I was eliminated on the first word in the final stage. (it's very cheap of me to include that. Haha. :D).

I was once picked to be on the TV show "Blind Date", though I didn't even aspire to be on it on my own. I was picked out of a group by a colleague with connections to a casting director on that show, who was told to pick one guy and one gal out of a group for a local taping of the show, and I was one selected. I didn't completely realize what the show was about with all the editing they do and "thought bubbles" at that time.

I would like to work on one I haven't had a chance to check off, I'd like to be published, and is something I'm working on, on-again, off-again.

That covers my selections, I reckon.

When I Google myself I get about 5 pages. Most of it is me...is that what the poll question is about?

I keep a low profile these days...my clients prefer it that way.

That you Mr Hoffa? :mooner:

Okay...camisadelgolf, dabvu2498, Smokin Joe, TeamCasey, you are the ones who checked the box saying that you'd be known for doing something notorious or stupid. Stories, please...

I spent many adolescent summers on one of the finger lakes. There was a boy scout camp on the other side of the lake. A bunch of us dressed in black and rowed over one night. Not only did we terrorize the scouts by tapping on the sides of the canvas tents and making scratching noises. We also set ALL of their boats, canoes, inner tubes, and the one motor boat loose on the lake.

We knew they could recover everything. It took them all day. We weren't trying to be destructive, but the engine fell off the speed boat somehow and sunk to the bottom of the lake. Oooops.

Which lake? My in-laws live in Bath, just south of Keuka Lake.

I'm first on a Google search for my name. But in all fairness, there is only one other person in the world that shares my name that I know of. He gets a few hits too.

I'm well known, but I don't think I'd say famous. I was very famous in my hometown of Piqua for a time back when I was named one of the top 25 poets in the world under the age of 25. I've been published all over the place, and have signed autographs both for my writing as well as for fans of my acting.

I'm also notorious for several things in my past, most notably for something that occurred involving hacking back when I was in high school in the early days of the internet, or what were called BBSs at the time.

I was in a band in college and we were apart of a few local shows that had well over a thousand people there.

2 poems of mine have been published.

In newspaper in highschool because of soccer and baseball.

I forgot to put i signed an autograph. A couple of fans bought our cd and thought we were going somewhere with our "musical talent" (or lack there of)...

I can't think of anything else atm but I can assure you no one knows me outside of friends and family.

Oh, you said "scratching" noises. I mis-read that bein that it involved girl scouts. :mooner:

Well this was surprising:

2 I wrote an article for a magazine (it was pretty cool to see a bylaw with my name on it! Plus I had a poem published in a collection of poetry when I was a teenager. Numerous letters to the editor.

3 My name popped up 5th which surprised me.

4 See two above, first item

5 The Cincinnati Business Courier did a story on my business; I was mentioned in a brief blurb in City Beat magazine.

8 I used to go to some conferences from time to time where folks from our church used to do presentations. I'm sure one or another had at least 1000+ folks (I even did a "Germany tour" speaking about three times while was visited my brother finishing up his studies there - that was fun working with a translator!).

Side note: Number one should have happened. I developed my signature for it, but I never became truly famous. Now I just use it as a Notary.

It has to be minor league phenom Jim Coombs. I can't believe his name has not even been mentioned.

My security clearance forbids me from answering any of these questions. In fact, I probably shouldn't even have told you that. I am the LEAST famous person in RedsZone...I don't even exist. No one has ever met me, or spoken to me. Nobody lives at my address or answers my phone. I'm not sure exactly how it happened but...I do have one friend. Just one. He has seen me and knows how to contact me. You will find a picture of 'the official' me in the RedsZone Gallery, and that's what I look like when I want to look like that...but most of the time I look different. ;)
