I made it in the local newspaper for lacrosse (at least twice), I played on TV where the anoucer killed my last name, my highschool was ranked #1 in Canada and #100ish in North America. My life is pretty much lacrosse.

I thought some more and actually came up with something "valid" compared to before. :P

Back when MXS was still in business my team Scenario team appeared in photo format in an issue about one of their games. My rear end is prominently featured. I also used to write for MXS so hundred of players have used player cards written by my or played as characters in scenarios written by me. I also used to work for a company that set up and tore down arena events in P'Cola so I met a lot of wrestlers and singers. So met a few of them when I lived down there like the 4 Horsemen, Page & Plant and so on and so forth.

When I was 14, my house (and most of the neighborhood) burned down. My pet rat not only survived, but made the newspaper headlines... "Pet Rat Survives House Fire" or something like that.

I used to have a regular client who was formerly a quarterback for the Kansas City Chiefs.

Nothing along the lines of being famous, but memorable (for me) ...

-When I was 6 (or 7) I made the Boston Globe. Pic of me shaking hands with Santa Claus.

-My Dad had ins in the music world when I was a kid (all jazz) and he would bring me to tons of local concerts where I got to meet and hang out with musicians. Don't remember all of them, but I met Count Basie and Duke Ellington, which is way before your time for most of you.

-When I was in college (1982?) I was the "Slave to Fashion" model for an Eastpak backpack print campaign.

-Hung out backstage with The Cult when they played Boston in the early 90's.

-I designed basketball sneakers for elite NBA players in the 90's - Larry Bird (BOS), Magic Johnson (LAL), Kevin Johnson (PHX), Larry Johnson/Grandmama (CHA), etc.

Oh! I smoked weed with Power Glove and Conducting from the Grave one time!

Can't believe I forgot that one!

I used to write editorials for Paintball 2 Xtremes and Scenario News.

I've done a couple local radio commercials when I lived in Michigan.

My girlfriend had a conversation with Bruce Campbell about the baby she was holding for a friend.
I was once published in Paintball 2 extreme. I can't remember the brothers name that owned it before, but it was their last issue before they were forced out (Let's not start a debate here please)
I even had an article written about me when I was over in Desert Storm. Can't remember what magazine it was. One of the paintball mags back in the day.

Later,
Blackrain

The biggest event was meeting Greg Hastings.lol
You forgot making the best paintball guns ever made!

I served in the Navy with Greg, meeting him just does not seem like that big of a deal to me. If anything it was an honor for him to meet you. I had dinner with him a few weeks ago and we were talking about the work you are doing.

I played on a Paintball Team that holds the record for the most amount of money ever won in a tournament.

I was a spotlight segment for KHOU (Houstons News) for being the 'professor that played paintball'.
