From a Plymouth Whalers alumni game this summer:

Current Boston Bruins All-Star Tyler Seguin

I wish I could still find the photo I took of Mark "The Bird" Fidrych waving to me going into his motel room when my family was staying with the Detroit Tigers during spring training in Lakeland, Florida when I was a kid.

Kurt Warner (NFL), Luis Gonzales (MLB), Ann Meyers Drysdale (WNBA), Tom Weiskopf (PGA), Brian Savage (NHL) and a few others have crossed my mics and video cameras over the years. They are all in the Phoenix area. A few years ago I produced a documentary on '70's motocross legend Marty Smith. It included his rivals Bob Hannah and Tommy Croft. Freddie Spencer (MotoGP) taught me how to race motorcycles. And I went to High School with David Toms (PGA)

Haven't had the chance to take many photos of all the above as I was operating a video camera or recording audio interviews.

That will change as at least one still camera is on my person at all my gigs now!

Here's me with Gonzo

Maybe you'd still be valeting for him if you knew how to spell his name correctly. :wink:
