Peredil made me think of the idea for a "claim to fame" thread. This should be interesting.... For you "old timers" out there (like me ), my biggest claim to fame was as a teenager when I lived down the street from Bob Griese and babysat his kids regularly. He was the QB for my ultimate football team, the '72 Miami Dolphins, and has been a football commentator for ABC for years. I spoke to Don Shula on the phone a few times when he was calling for him - I was probably smacking my gum and acting totally unimpressed. I actually babysat for several other Dolphins players' kids, but can't remember their names (see how impressed I was?). In high school, I used to work for a music store that sold rare sheet music. One day, Tiny Tim and his entourage came in and I had to find some music for him (remember "Tiptoe Through the Tulips?). It was August and he was wearing his signature trench coat. Creepy guy.
