I had forgotten about this, but my mom dated Hal Holbrook for a while when he was in DC doing that Mark Twain show back in the late 70s. I think he was still married at the time, but got divorced soon after. I met him a couple times when I was home from college. He seemed like a really nice man.

My cousin dated Chuck Connors (Rifleman) when he played for the Cubs...

"Evel" Knievel bought sweet corn at our farm stand.

OK, pretty lame, I know.

My childhood friend's father, Frank St. Marseille, played for the NHL LA Kings....


After going undrafted in the NHL, Frank St. Marseille was considered to be too slow for the big leagues. But, he worked his way through the minors until being signed by the expansion St. Louis Blues. In 1967, he come off a career season with the IHL's Port Huron Flags and was named to the league's second all-star team. As a Blues rookie, St. Marseille was considered to be a great acquisition. He helped the team get to the Stanley Cup finals only to be swept by the Canadiens. The next two seasons saw St. Marseille and the Blues go back to the finals but the team fell short both times to the Canadiens and then the Bruins, never winning even a single game.
St. Marseille spent five seasons in St. Louis before being traded to the Kings in the 1972-73 season. He was a consistent player for the Kings until leaving the NHL in the 1976-77 season, though he spent one more year with the AHL's Nova Scotia Voyageurs before retiring as a player in 1978. St. Marseille stepped behind the bench and coached the Voyageurs for several seasons before heading back to the Kings as an assistant coach. He left the game once again and move back to Canada to help his son develop as a hockey player in his own right.

An cousin was a major Boston hood. My boyhood best buddy's Mom was a Rockette. His Dad became a major Vegas hood, post Kefauver hearings.

See, I really do know cool people.

My sister has participated in horseback riding events with William Shatner (who is also into horses). Beam me up, Scotty!

I'm still waiting for Moemg to get me a date with Sharapova (we're all neighbors, right?) It's questionable whether I should be dating a woman who can break my body in half with her bare hands, though.

Oh, now I can brag. As a small child I looked up to a teenager who dressed like James Dean, complete with hairdo, cigs rolled into his teeshirt sleeve sitting backwards in chairs and was rumored to smoke pot. He grew up to be a jockey! His sister couldda been a contender but gave up the ring when a friend was straggled on the ropes. My niece does competitive horseback riding. I actually know these people.

If this makes one famous for a few minutes then I also qualify. Twenty some years I delivered Identical Triplets....and it wasn't by C-section or with fertility drugs either.
