I know the whole Cash family. Johnny Cash's granddaughter Caitlin is my best friend since we were about 12. I spent my summers hanging out at their house. I vacationed a couple times in NY and stayed with Roseanne when Caitlin lived up there.
The ABSOLUTE NICEST PEOPLE EVER!!

That being said, I have met a ton of famous people. At June and Johnny's 25th anniversary, I walked in a room with all of the Highwaymen playing acoustic, and being 13 or 14 at the time, I said "this is boring, let's do something else". Big regret!!

Went to high school with Sergey Brin...didn't become pals with him, big mistake!

Jermaine Lewis (ex-Raven KO return guy) was in my grauating class also, we played pickup hoops together. He's had a rough go lately, recently arrested, pretty sad.

I love Johnny Cash too, I generally hate country music, but it's hard to not love Johnny Cash.

I don't know anyone SUPER famous, but a few notables...

-my Aunt Teresa is the daughter of the late English author Evelyn Waugh

-my late Uncle Ted was a former repertory theatre actor, and sometimes screen actor...those of you roughly around my age may know him as the veterinary doctor trying to pull the quills out of Chance's muzzle in "Homeward Bound: The Incredible Journey."

-my parents and I are friends with Gene Brewer, author of the book K-PAX (which was turned into a movie in 2001 starring Kevin Spacey and Jeff Bridges)

-my senior year of high school, I played football with Damien Rhodes (his sophomore season)...he went on to play tailback for four years at Syracuse, and was briefly with the Houston Texans

Not really famous or anything, but one of my friends was on The Bachelorette a couple seasons ago and got all the way down to the final four contestants. He then was on The Bachelor Pad as well last year.

My wife used to work next to Ray Narleski (pitched for the Indians and a few other teams in the 1950's) and would see him almost daily as he was good friends with the business. He invited me into his house one time and showed me a bunch of his memorabilia and shared some great stories. RIP.


An Eagles cheerleader used to babysit me when I was too little to appreciate it. I think she was the cousin of one of my dad's friends, or something like that.


Another friend of my dad had Charles Barkley at his wedding, don't know what the connection was, though.

One of the Kids From the Nickelodeon Show "Naked Brothers Band" is one of my friends.

We spent a day in ISS (in school suspension) together..it was fun.

Oh yeah, my dad was best buds/roommates with Kirby Puckett in college. I think i have a few of his shirts kicking around at my house.

LOL my wife JUST asked me: Did you tell them you went to college with Kristen Chenoweth (Glee, The West Wing, The Good Wife, etc.). Me: FACEPALM.

So yah, I was in music school with her and everyone knew she was going to make it big back then, most likely on broadway. No one predicted she would become a TV and movie star.

A really REALLY nice girl.

I think she might remember me after all these years...

I used to smoke dank with chris webber bitd when he was a bullet - when he was lighting it up. Also installed some of his systems in some of his rides at a shop I worked at. Those were the freakin gold old days.

I had a math teacher in Junior High, his brother is Tom Veryzer, played from 73'-84'... my third cousin is Zsa Zsa Gabor, and on the same side of the family, I am also cousins with Donna Pescow, if you are not sure who that is, she was the one chasing John Travolta in Saturday Night Fever. Plus had a great uncle who at one time was Vice pres of Hanna Barbara and a higher up in 20th century fox.

In college I hung out with Jaycee Phelps, won Gold in Atlanta in Gymnatics, she was good friends with my roommate, really cool, I remember going to a Bare Naked Ladies concert with her.
