Met Jack Lambert in spring training at Latrobe in 75. Met Lynn Swann and Franco Harris a couple years ago at the Pittsburgh airport! Met Sugar Ray Leonard on my flight to South Carolina on my way to Marine Corps bootcamp in 84! Also met Arnold Swarzenegger in the mid 90's when he came to my base to check out the harrier before starting to film True Lies! I was in VMA-214 Blacksheep squadron at the time (yes, its the same squadron they made the TV show about with Pappy Boyington). Arnold was still a big S.O.B! He sat in one of our airplanes. Thats the extent of the celebrities I have met!

I have met Kevin Henry and Randle El.

Whats sad the one former Steelers I should have met is my grandfather who played for the Steelers in the early 50's but he died before I was born.

Sold Peezy a basketball hoop when I worked at the Dicks in Robinson.

Met the Bus there too.

Met Max Starks while I was deployed in Manas, Kyrgyzstan last year. it was cool b/c Bryce Fisher was there too, and one of the pilots I am stationed with went to school with himm at the Air force academy. They chilled with us and ate lunch with us. This was after the SB so Starks (who blocked fisher almost all game) talked **** to him mlike all day.

Wow my memory sucks :lol: Randle El was a the fan blitz 2 years ago when we were there. One of the most gracious people Ive ever seen and so down to earth. We met him at the autograph session and then just before he went on to do a taping of the McDonalds sponsored Steelers kids show.

I actually met Randle El at the Bengals game in Cincy. I was hanging out where the buses leave and I met his mom, dad and little brother. I started talking to his mom and got her to take me down to meet him. When she intorduced us she told him that I was the biggest Steeler fan and the funniest girl she had ever met and he picked me up and gave me a huge hug and signed a hat. He was very cool and seemed very gracious to meet a fan. I also met the Bus that day.

Warrick Dunn is a very nice guy. He sure has a wonderful foundation that helps single mother with children become homeowners. He is a very good man. I enjoy his bio and his career.

I've dated one, big mistake, I know what you mean.

I've had a 2 year relationship with an ex-stripper, she was the sweetest gal I've ever hanged out with. She really went out of her way to make me happy and such. She had to move to Nevada for a huge gig in Las Vegas, so we broke ties, I haven't heard from her since Last Summer in an e mail. OH well.
