Just thought I'd post some pics of some celeb's I got to meet today!

Warrick Dunn

Leanne Tweeden

Bradley Cooper

and Don Shula


I also got to meet D.B. Sweeney, but my cam died and my co-worker has the pic. I'd like to thank the USO for putting this on, and the celebs for taking time out of their busy schedules to visit the troops in Afghanistan!

Ok so Bradley Cooper I recognize. Who are the other people? Good deal though! but I admit, I'm not much of a movie/TV buff and never know actors.

Well thanks to Google Images, I now know Leanne Tweeden. And I thank you for that opportunity!

Warrick Dunn is an NFL running back who has played for Tampa Bay and Atlanta. Leanne Tweeden is a hottie!!! She has hosted Poker After Dark and I think she's also been on The Best Damn Sports Show. Don Shula is a Hall of Fame pro football coach who coached the Miami Dolphins and was responsible for the undefeated 1972 Dolphins. D.B. Sweeney was an actor in the movie the Cutting Edge. A story about a hockey player turned figure skater.....I know, but he was a pretty cool guy to meet.

I know this sounds trite, but they all looked happy to meet you too. That must mean you're an interesting person as well.
Or they just didn't want to piss me off since that strap you see has a fully loaded M16 attached to it ;)

I despise football myself, but Don Shula is legendary for coaching the '72 Dolphins to the Perfect Season.
I was -10 years old, sorry if my memory is a little fuzzy :)

And they should be. You've done a crap ton more for them and any of us than they have! You and yours are the celebrities.

Perhaps if you were stuck in the boonies in Afghanistan without whatever it is you find interesting in the relative comfort of Ft. Wayne you too would find them interesting and appreciate someone taking the time to speak to you. I'm only familiar with a couple of these people but my hat's off to them for doing something most "interesting" people wouldn't do on a bet.

Good day bro!! Did you ask Shula what strategies he might use in Afganistan? That might be interesting to hear.

I'm going to pretend you didn't say that.


Cool deal, golfguy. Warrick Dunn might be one of the nicest athletes I've ever met. Shula's pretty cool, too, considering he could be all stuck up as a Hall of Famer. :)
Sorry, It ranks right up there with Base ball and basketball. I just don't like them.

I only got to talk to Shula for a few minutes. He's kinda hard of hearing, but a really nice guy. He was interested to know where I was from and actually knew where I was from!

God that PT uniform is atrocious.
Yeah it really is. This is actually the second version of it too and is way better then the original. The shorts are still way too short, but they are working on a third version that is lighter and has longer shorts.
