what is your biggest claim to fame?

for me being spotted on the sky sports cameras at a soccer match in 2010 at Bolton vs Birmingham.

^^^^ I was gonna say that, lol
Eh, I've been written about a few times in a major newspaper,
the author (who I conversed with directly) is now a nationally known celeb himself.
I've also met some insanely cool celebs &
had them not only approach me, but really genuinely took an interest in me---
Including Bruce Willis- Omg he rocks
I know there's more, but that's good for now, lol

My name was in very brief AP articles sent over the wire when commenting on Billy Carter's liver disease, condition, and treatment at Emory University Hospital (I was in the PR office).

Local PBS station did a piece on a personal assistant business I set up, but despite such extensive coverage (LOL), that "career" never took off.

Was an extra on "Big Fish." Two of the most miserable, long days I have ever spent.

My friend and me washed Leonard Neemoy's jeep in the 80s'. My jackass friend broke a windshield wiper but was afraid to tell Neemoy.

I invented the "hand-held fan" at a Minnesota Twins baseball game in the 1960's using a team program. Later I noticed many people around me were copying me and naturally, I gave them a dirty look and said some things I now regret. I have since been at, or watched on TV, different events all over the world of other people doing the same thing. I'm not really seeking fame or fortune for this, just a little bit of appreciation for my invention would be nice.

Miss Valentine at 4 years old, on front page of local newspaper, holding a box of candy in my lap & sitting in my junior sized rocking chair. My cousin worked for the paper, not sure what he did. At 4 I didn't care. I guess I was an early star that fizzled out fast...

Pitched a no-hitter ... Little League game at age 11. A blurb of the occasion actually made the Sports section of the local newsrag.

TV film clip on local news, during riot duty with the National Guard, age 23.

And I expect to be even more famous during my 2nd 70 years. ;-)

My band had a song on a compilation album last year.
Our debut demo got 9 out of 10 in a review in Swedens biggest metal and punk magazine and ended up on the reviwers top 10 list that year.
We have also opened for one of Swedens biggest punk bands.
Still completely unknown though.

Interviewed by NBC news on the street on the way to work. My coworkers and 2 friends saw it. That was it for me on TV for about 30 seconds.
