    Do you like BF? He's another one I've met, although he's not as notable as some of the others on my list.
    I like Ben Folds, and get the chance to meet him on monday, he's coming to my work.
    Let's make some noise!

    Very impressive list. Mind if I ask what you do for a living?

    Not at all. I work in the music industry. I've worked in management, I've worked at a major label, I've worked on the live side and now I'm working for myself doing online marketing.

    All of the musicians/actors/actresses I've met while working in music or living in NYC. All of the athletes except for Zito (and Knight if you count him in that camp) I met when I was younger, randomly, when I lived in Indianapolis.

    The funny thing is, out of everyone on that list, I think I was probably the most starstruck when I met Bob Knight. And he's debatably the most accessible person on that list (or was at least) and probably the last person most would want to meet. Then again, I grew up on IU basketball and went to IU so I guess that may have been a factor.

    I met Coach Knight at a benefit dinner and he is a very intimidating man, I was just shaking his hand and saying hello and was very intimidated.
    I was in the ORG once, best 6 months of my life.

    Huge fan. Back when you were up for a vote for the org, I made some comment about how I was voting for you without looking at your posts because of your name. Never gotten to meet him, but my wife and I go to his shows whenever he's nearby.

    Really? I didn't talk to him too long, but I didn't get that impression. He's the guy you would see on the sidelines, but not intimidating.

    Haha, that's awesome. I don't know how accessible he is at shows these days, but I imagine he still comes out? I'm not sure. It's funny, he's actually pretty shy, at least that's what I gathered. Which is different than what you would gather from his music, at least in my opinion.

    Took Chuck Garvey and his wife to a Reds game and generally hung out with them while we were living in Cincinnati from ''98-'01. I never thought of him as anyone famous because I didn't know anything about Moe before meeting him.
    Next Reds manager, second shooter. --Confirmed on Redszone.
