The Most Famous Person I Ever Met

7 Aug 2008 /

I was at Juice It Up again today and the same girl was at the register.

“That was Sugar Ray Leonard yesterday,” she said.

“How do you know,” I asked.

“He came back in later. I asked him, ‘Are you famous?’ and he said, ‘I was.’ I said, ‘Do you mind if I ask your name?’ and he said ‘Sugar Ray Leonard.'”

So Olympic gold medalist and American icon Sugar Ray Leonard is now officially the most famous person I ever “met” — even if college girls and suburban hausfraus have no idea who he is.

(I saw Rod Stewart having dinner once at the Hotel Bel-Air but he’s not even a real American . . .)
