    Especially at the Wynn, since the national teams stay there. I recall one time when DeMarcus Cousins got in an elevator with me and a european tourist. Cousins legitimately occupied half the elevator and the poor tourist just stared at him the whole time. I don't think he had ever seen a human so large, lol

    Yep.

    We stayed at the Wynn several years ago when Team USA was there.....saw Kevin Durant, Andre Iguadala, John Wall, James Harden, Coach K, Steve Wojo, and played poker with Jim Boeheim for several hours (I think I'm the only one that even knew who he was).

    It’s been 20 years, but my sister and I were leaving MGM going up the escalators by the old Rain Forest Cafe and I see Gene Simmons, Shannon Tweed and the kids going down the escalator. Sis and I get to the top and I said “let’s go, that was Gene Simmons!” ( I’m a big KISS fan). She says who is Gene Simmons......I said really? The down escalator wasn’t working and we had heels in so he probably heard us clip clopping down the stairs. The family was ahead of him so sis and I flanked him and I looked up and said hello. He said hello. I asked if I might have seen him in concert in Austin a few years back, he said yes. I said are you Gene Simmons, he said yes. I asked him for an autograph, then I proceeded to take pen and paper out of my purse. BUT I had to take a disposable camera out first, so dumb me didn’t even think, I put the camera back and gave him the paper. Hours later I looked at sis and said “I’m a dumbass, I had the camera in my hand”. That was before cell phones had cameras. He was actually very nice.

    Thanks. I didn't recognize him either. I wasn't sure who was the celebrity and who was the VMBer.

    I haven't watched his show in some time. Guests throwing chairs at each other gets old very quickly.
