A brush with greatness
I'm not one to become "star struck" and would certainly never bother a player who is playing, but it was fun to see great players in their element. I realize however that the average Joe would have no idea who most of these famous players are.
I had the chance once to meet and talk to a man who is almost larger than life: Michael Crichton. (You know.... the guy who wrote Jurassic Park.)
First, he almost IS larger than life. Mr. Crichton stands 6'11" tall!!! Second, he is a VERY nice man. I spoke to him for 20-30 minutes and he comes off as a regular guy. Okay..... a regular guy with a bazillion dollars, (his limo was too long to drive through the trees into camp and had to be parked outside the gate) but other than that just a regular guy.
No poker content. I just thought people might like to see a picture of Michael Crichton, his daughter and wife :-)
