The people I meet….
One benefit to working at my hotel is that we have a lot of fairly famous people stay with us that I get to meet. I thought it would be fun to try and make a list and remember everyone that I've met since I've worked here. I know I can't get them all but I'm going to list as many as possible. BTW, the vast majority are athletes:
Athletes: Reggie Jackson - Mr. October, Hall of Fame Yankee's baseball player Gale Sayers - Chicago Bears running back Bart Starr (by far the coolest, he mailed me an autographed picture and personalized letter!) - Hall of Fame, Green Bay Packer Quarterback Danny Manning - Kansas Basketball player Tim Floyd - Former NBA Coach Ed Hockalee - NFL Referee Roy Williams - North Carolina Football Coach Bill Self - Kansas basketball coach Gary Pinkel - Missouri Football Coach Dan Saleamua - Former Chiefs football player Clark Kellog - ESPN Basketball analyst Andy Katz - ESPN Basketball analyst Brent Mussberger - ABC College Football analyst
Musicians: Selah - Christian band Switchfoot - Christian Band (I got all their autographs and got to help unload their bus, I thought it was very cool!) Lincoln Brewster
Politicians: Richard Gephardt (it's a good thing he didn't win the nomination because he was a jerk!)
Wrestlers: The Big Show Sable A bunch more that I can't remember because I don't like wrestling! :-)
