Carl Edwards Jr. (Chicago Cubs reliever) on my MCO > ORD flight yesterday 12/14. He was in 3A while i was in 4E. He kept to himself, though a few people did recognize him and say hello. I told him good luck next year while we were disembarking. At MCO he got in the group 1 line to board behind a bunch of people before a UA agent walked over to him and asked if he wanted to board with GS'. Seemed like a very humble guy.

Did you ask him if he brought a Ď47 Chateaunuf-du-Pape with him?

(All 11 seasons of Fraiser are on Netflix now Iíve been re-watching.)

Mike Victorino, newly-elected Mayor of Maui County (and father of former MLB player Shane V). Heís a UA 1K. Before he sat in his F seat SFO-OGG and I headed back to coach, we chatted about the Maui water department, where my subdivision request is growing weeds. Iím hoping new department head unclogs the approval pipeline.

Donald Penn: right guard for the Oakland Raiders. Spotted on LAX-ORD redeye flight on 1/11/2019. It was more of an instance where he spotted me since I was wearing my big and poofy Raiders beanie, smiled and nodded. Had it not been inside the aircraft, I'm sure I would have let out a "Raaaiiiderrrrsssssss" shout towards him. Cheers.

Flew with Cuba Gooding, Jr. on a LHR-EWR in November. Very nice, approachable guy and a gentleman.

Also saw Geraldo Rivera on the PreCheck line at EWR last week. He interacted nicely with the TSA staff, seemed to be thanking them for coming in during the shutdown.

Flew in first from LAS to DEN on Feb 20, 2019, sitting right behind OJ Simpson. He was going skiing in Vail.

Funny, I would have been next to him, but swapped seats at check-in as I didn't want the bulkhead.

He was very nice, took a selfie after landing. Looks good for 71.
