My brother has Muhammmad Ali on the picture of him beating Joe Frazier he also has the picture of Mickey Mantle and Joe DiMaggio in the dugout together signed by them. Both are really cool. He has others, but those two are his best. I have a sh*t stained shirt signed by Zak Wylde.

That last line made me spit out my coke for laughing out loud.

The only one I have----
Right after the first "Rocky" I was at the age that I believed I was going to be him "when I grew up". In my fathers "before kids" life he played keyboards in a band and one of the other fellas was/is buddy's with Sly....

Yea, he was such a humble guy and very generous. He was there (Cody, WY) for the Winchester Museum opening and I met him during a party. After watching all of his movies, I remembered (as a kid) he always seem to drink out of a flask. So, when I met him, I said, "Don't worry Mr Wayne, we have plenty of Whiskey!"

I guess he thought that was funny so he later asked if I wanted to be in the 4th of July parade with him the next day. I had breakfast with him and his daughter, and then went in the parade. Just a great memory for sure!

That is a great memory! Born in the great state of IOWA! In high school we had to write a 10 page paper in history class about a great American. I picked the Duke and ended up writing a 30 page paper! Extremely jealous of your memory...

I'll give you just a little more.....

At the party, it was a "self serve" cook your own steak on a big ol' BBQ pit. Well, I decided I should go ahead and make Mr. Wayne a steak. I slapped it on for, what I thought, was a decent amount of cooking time, flipped it, and then dropped it on a plate. I then served this "amazingly looking plate" to him. He very graciously accepted.

I later found out that he commented, "if the steak were any more rare, it would of stood up and walked off his plate!" I guess I wasn't the cook I thought I was at age (8???)
