This. I have had people call/text/write and tell me they saw my posts online.

I was on KABC news in the late 80's, something about my grandpa's birthday.

I was on some Syracuse TV station, some comedy troupe or something was at the zoo, 1993.

I was student of the month for all 7th graders in the Corona-Norco Unified School District, 1996 (made the paper).

Randy Johnson had a rehab start at Class A Everett, and the Everett Herald snapped a pic of him getting his legs stretched. My brother and I are clearly in the background.

6th place at FBLA California state championships in composing business letters, 1999.

I was interviewed by KTTV about an injured WWE wrestler, circa 2000.

I've been seen on WWE Raw/Smackdown/PPV TV events in the crowd numerous times in several cities. Met John Cena before he was famous. Met Chris Benoit before he killed himself and his family. Several other WWE folks as well. Used to submit event reports to Rajah.com (well known pro wrestling website in the late 90's/early 00's).

I've waited on Travis Barker of Blink 182. Ran into him at a strip club in Rialto, CA as well. Delivered pizza to Mark Hoppus's dad.

Met several past/present Colorado Rockies players. Jason Giambi, Ellis Burks, Nolan Arenado, numerous others.

I have one tournament poker cash at the Rio in Las Vegas. A few at Golden Gates in Black Hawk, CO. Several online cashes (Full Tilt, Poker Stars, others).

I met Art Alexakis (lead singer of Everclear) the other day.

I'm sure I'm forgetting plenty. Most proud of my poker and my writing. Need to dedicate myself more to both.

My picture has been on the front page of a major U.S. big city newspaper! (It was the Austin (TX) American-Statesman back in the mid-90s and they did an article on Dell Computer, and I was pictured on working on the manufacturing line).

Also--the actor William Fichtner (The Perfect Storm; Crash; Prison Break; The Longest Yard) is my cousin and good friend.

I sat next to Alice Cooper on a flight from Austin to Phoenix. (super nice guy!)

When trivia contests were all the rage back in the late 1980s, I was on a roll for about a year and a half.

I won a $250 gift certificate in a Queen Victoria trivia contest, a trip for four to Gatlinburg in a public radio station contest, four tickets to the circus for a non-public radio trivia contest, and an umbrella for something or another - I can't remember; it's too trivial!

Also, a couple of the Lennon Sisters sang an unaccompanied version of "Ferdinand the Bull" to me at a convention where they were performing at the closing banquet (I encountered them elsewhere and told them I'd just seen them on a public TV rerun from the late 1950s, singing this song).

I met John Hartford at a traditional music weekend where he led a roundtable - like the Lennons, he was very down-to-earth and approachable - no pretense about any of these three nice people.

Some of my antique toys have won blue ribbons in competition at toy conventions - but the toys won the ribbons, not me!

As a voice actor I once got a gig as a minor bad guy in a Grand Theft Auto game, 'GTA IV: The Ballad Of Gay Tony'. I'm the voice of a guy you fight in a fight club scene.

Years ago, I performed as a rapper on a song with Chuck D of Public Enemy, on his solo album 'The Autobiography of Mistachuck'. It's ironic to me because Chuck--like myself--is a hard rock/metal head more than anything else.

About 15 years ago I was on a weekly local television series for 3 years. Couldn't go anyplace without someone saying "hey you're that guy". Hated it.
