Wow! This turned from a "close encounters" thread to a "who has the most trash about celebrities" thread.

I came across Tommy Lee Jones and Bruce Bowen at an office where I used to work. We were told, in advance of Mr. Jones' numerous visits, that we were not to look at him, speak to him unless he spoke to us first, and most certainly not, under any circumstance, ask for an autograph. It was clear that he valued his privacy.

Trashy? define trashy. Amy Whinehouse is trashy and baked. Britney Spears is trashy. Lindsay Lohan is bonkers and trashy. And where does Eva fall in? As long as she not a player, then she's Tony's hot trash!

I worked through college as a security guard. I met many of the spurs in the early 90's. David Robinson and Sean Elliott are the nicest guys you could ever hope to meet. Coach Pop is also pretty nice.

Sonny Melendrez is a nice guy on his good days.

Patsy Torres? Well, not so much. We just stayed out of her way.

And Vinny Del Negro had the biggest ego and celebrity complex I had ever seen.

I'd expect David and Sean to be nice guys. Vinny Del Negro's head probably inflated another couple sizes lately. Didn't he get a coaching job?

I have a little Vinny story. Back in the day when the Spurs practiced at UIW in our convocation center, I was a student. I was backing up out of my spot, he was hauling a$$ and wailed his horn at me in his fancy Cadillac Escalade. Gave me a dirty look when I pulled back in LOL. What a douc&e.
