Not really a "celebrity", but...Was walking at Scottsdale fashion Square today, and saw Grant Hill from the Phx Suns. I was going to say something tohim, but wasnt totally sure if it was him. So I didnt want to look stupid asking him if hes Grant Hill
. But I later realized it was him once this other kid hurried up and asked himfor his autograph.

I thought I saw Mr. Marcus in the gym the other day, but how do you even start to approach someone like that


Be like...
Me: I love your work I'm such a huge fan!
Him:
you gay doggie.

Still regret not running across traffics for his autograph. [or at least tryin]

The leading scorer in NBA history....still haunts me.

Christian Laettner works out at my local Y all the time. I never approach him though cause I don't wanna interrupt his workout.

I seen Jerry Rice at Hillsdale Mall. Didn't bother him though since he was with some lady. Thought about asking for an autograph, but didn't. I thinkhe goes there regularly though since his kid goes to HS around here, but I don't go to Hillsdale Mall that often so I'm not certain.

Luda. I would have, but it looked like he was in a bad !%@+$+! mood. Just glaring at everyone... not saying anything... just had that feel that he'd stompon me if I said "I like your music."

Saw half of Peyton Manning's team at a po boy shop when I was real small and couldn't approach because we were just picking up and had to bounce.I'm an average fan of his so I'm not too heartbroken about it.

I was in Burma visiting the Strand Hotel. As I was walking through the lobby admiring the interior, I heard a group of men having a heated discussion. As Iwalked closer, the voices of one of the dudes sounded reaaaally familiar but it didn't click immediately. When I finally walked close enough to where theywere sitting, I saw it was Edward Norton. Didn't really want to bother him as he seemed to be pretty immersed in his conversation, but it was definitelyrandom as hell.

How did you not know it was Grant Hill? Dude is 6'8 lol.

I actually met him back in the day, but it was at an autograph signing in the mall.

Living in SoCal, all the time.
If I approached all the celebs I saw, i'd be wasting a good amount of my time.
