Writer's Block: Close Encounters of the Celebrity Kind

Have you ever met a celebrity in real life? Who was it and how did your paths cross?

I met Tommy LaSorda (who was manager of the LA Dodgers at the time) at the airport at 4 AM in the morning. If he'd been busy, I probably wouldn't have approached him, but he was just standing around waiting for a flight. I know he likes interacting with Dodger fans, so I worked up the nerve to ask him for his autograph.

He was very gracious and signed my notebook.

His friend seemed amused. Thining back, I wonder if it was a celebrity of some sort, but I didn't really look at him.
