    Dave Grohl just walking through cosmo. I so wanted to go up to him but then he was minding his own business and I didn't want to be that guy. My wife wasn't pleased he's her favourite and said I should have gotten a photo or autograph.

    Do I regret not going up to him? Yes he seems like a really cool guy but at the end of the day I didn't want to hassle some bloke.

    This was maybe 8-9 or so years ago but I saw Dr. Buss sitting at a random Video Poker machine near the main lobby of the MGM Grand. I didnt even notice him (who would have thought that Dr. Buss would be playing random VP in the main casino?) but my buddy recognized him right away. He walked about 10 steps past him, before my buddy stopped and did a U-turn. He shook his hand, got a pic, and we were on our way. I think he only noticed Dr. Buss because he was checking out the arm candy that was with him.

    Kinduva celebrity I guess, but I saw Dana White (UFC boss) waiting in cashier cage line at the D a couple months back. I knew that he was a big gambler, but didnt know he played at the D.

    Not really celebrities, but I see a lot of pro fighters out and about whenever its a fight weekend. Was playing $10 craps at NYNY a long time ago and Ryan Bader, CB Dolloway and the rest of their crew joined the table right next to me.

    Saw Kim from Real Housewives of Atlanta at the Wynn, with a hugeasy crowd around her. Wasn't impressed. Sat next to Criss angel at at a bar in the luxor for about 15 mins & asked him to pass me matches. (Too shy to fan girl out) met Sigfried at the Mirage, he was just standing in the habitat near the restrooms & people didn't even really pay attention. I went & said hi. He was very friendly

    lol and amen.

    We have a lot of Kurt Russell sightings around here, because of the wine he and Goldie "make." Our neighbor is STARSTRUCK. If we mention that we saw them at So and So and don't get a picture, she thinks we're out of our minds. That kind of stuff just doesn't really move me. If it is someone I admire or whose accomplishments I like, I might say "hi" if it is appropriate, but they're still just peeps.

    I don't keep up much with TV, movies or pop culture in general. I wouldn't recognize most of them.

    I agree. I think it's a better experience for all involved if you just have a conversation or interaction with them like you would with any other stranger. I've shot dice with quite a few NFLers and NBAers and once they recognize me as a knowledgeable and courteous player we typically have a good time. I only acknowledge who they are when one of us is ready to leave. I usually do so by wishing them to take it easy on my Browns when we play or good luck against the Cavs. I wish them well on their coming season and am on my way.

    Kurt and Goldie are often out and about in Muskoka here in Ontario where they have owned a "cottage" for many years on Lake Rosseau.

    Watching an old episode of Prison Break today and saw this guy. I knew he looked familiar when I saw him at the Cosmo in May. Saw him in the elevator and at the coffee shop one morning.

    I'm not sure if I posted this already - saw Khloe Kardashian arrive at McCarran with a few 'handlers' who were physically barging their way through the crowd. Khloe muttered "no photos" as she strutted down the concourse. Like that is going to happen when you are making a scene.
