So my beer league team was having some bad luck against one of the teams we play in the “R” – for those not in the know, that’s the RHL – the Rainier Hockey league. So as a show of solidarity we decided to grow mustaches…some already had facial hair, while others didn’t and had a week to grow it…but all tried. The effort worked as we won our game, and more importantly we have this creepy picture to stay with us for a lifetime. I think the red eye’s make it even more creepy!
If you want to see what I was rocking…this was the best I could pull off, as I had an important meeting last Wednesday so I had to shave on Tuesday night. It was still enough…my wife said I look creepy, I think it’s a good look. Sadly it’s already gone as I shaved it when I got home.
Christopher Walken was trying to hail a cab in New York City last Tuesday when some random fans stopped and offered him a ride. He took them up on it . . . and they posted their story on Reddit.com. One of the guys says, "We told him we are huge fans and offered him a lift. He responded politely 'I don't want you guys to go out of your way. I am going straight downtown and you can leave me anywhere. He got in the car and we went on talking about stories from growing up in the city. He is an incredibly nice person, the conversation was great and Mr. Walken thanked us again for the ride."
So Christopher Walken hitched a ride with some random fans in New York…based on this, when have you had an odd run-in with a celebrity? Here are the texts we got:
