yeah - it's been on the market for a while (but the price was also reduced before Ike - so the storm had nothing to do with the reduction in price.)

Actually, Mary Lou Retton was born in Fairmont, West Virginia...I have heard she sometimes denies it, but why I don't know...they named an avenue after her!!

shaq, puff daddy, and master-p used to own houses out here. all of them moved away from houston though, and relocated to other states. JR Smith from the denver nuggets, and Damon stodemire both stay out here during the summer time also, and you can see these guys play at fonde rec center every summer in down town in pickup games.

I believe Brent Spiner also was born here and went to school with Randy & Dennis Quaid. Not sure if he (or his family) still lives or visits here though.

Also, doesn't President Bush Sr. have a house in Houston (River Oaks or Tanglewood maybe?)?

Most of the Houston rap guys definitely (you might make a case for some select individuals like Chamillionaire - if you've been spoofed by Weird Al, you've hit it big) and a lot of the second-tier athletes as well are regional at best.

But Yao is probably the most famous athlete in the most populous country in the world, which I'd figure would extend his celebrity status beyond the Houston area somewhat.
