Probably Jeff Bagwell. A relative played college ball with him.

Oh, and Angus Young sweated on me when I sat front row. But I didn't speak to him.

I sort of spoke to Marvin Hagler once. He was walking down the street with short shorts, white socks pulled up to his knees, carrying a boombox like Radio Raheem. It was the night of a Hit Man Hearns v. Sugar Ray fight. I said, "Hey Marvelous, who's going to win the fight tonight." And he said, "I don't know, and I don't care!"

I used to work for a sports agency called ProServ in Washington DC. David Falk was an agent there at the time. Lots of tennis stars, but some football and basketball too.

Oscar Robertson was the coolest, but most famous was probably Susan Sarandon or Letterman. or maybe Brian Williams. I guess it depends what you definition of famous is.

I ended up in an elevator with Jimmy Johnson (nascar) & Ludacris when I was 13 but meeting Chris pratt yesterday at a sneak peak screening of magnificent 7 was awesome. Great guy.

Brent Liles (RIP). Non 80s punks probably won't know who he was.

not most famous but most interesting conversation with a "famous" person was with Greg Maddox in 2002 on the field at Diamondback stadium in Phoenix during batting practice
All he wanted to talk about was UConn basketball and how he absolutely admired Jim Calhoun
The guy knows his College BB

others:
Donald Trump many years ago on several occasions
JC - talk to him in Madison (usually at the Cumberland Farms)
Bob Weir
Phil Lesh
George W and his father a few time in Kennebunkport
John McCain
Red Aurbach - at preseason camp on several occasions
Larry Bird- " "
Kevin McHale- " "
JoJo White- """
Bill Walton- at Celtics camps and GD/RatDog concerts
Ray Allen - his mother worked for me
Bill Belichik
Kevin Costner

Got a handshake and a "How ya doin'?" from Obama.

UConn-wise, probably Jeremy Lamb, Donny Marshall, or the beast in my avatar. The one time I was introduced to JC in person, I was far too young to participate in the conversation.
