When the Palms first opened they had the first(at least I think that to be true) dedicated higher limit no limit poker room. I played with a bunch of famous people there. I don't know much about baseball players, however, I got to know this one guy who just singed a big contract as a rookie. We ate dinner a few times together during his trip, but I don't even recall his name anymore. At one point I was joking and said you will have to send me a singed pre-rookie card when you get back home. He said, sure, whats your address? I obliged him, and sure enough, a few weeks later it arrived in the mail. Now I just have to go though my baseball cards and find it to see who it was. for all I know he's a super star now.

I keep running into Mayweather Sr.

Once at Palms when I was getting food. I figured he was some old dude but people kept coming up to him saying "your son is awesome dood"

Once at BOFA. He was withdrawing money out with his "posse" I guess or something. His lady friend was pretty much facilitating the entire thing, it looked like one of those things where he was getting straight scammed or something.

I also ran into one of Mayweather's "trainers" or "promoter" or whatever the hell he was at Chase.

I ran into MLB Commissioner (at the time) Bud Selig at Gilles' Frozen Custard in Wauwatosa, WI, which is just outside of Milwaukee. He apparently is kinda a regular there. He came in thanked everybody, shook a few hands, including mine, and went back to his Lexus with his burger

Bill Murray a month ago at Keeneland. He was very nice.

Eli Manning when we were both in high school.

Speaking of knowing people in HS. While I don't expect people to know him nationally, I grew up up with Drew Burgoyne, chief meteorologist for Channel 58 (CBS) in Milwaukee. Grew up with him in Naperville, IL. I even had CCD at their house
