“Who is the most famous person you have ever sat near at a game, restaurant or event? And did you talk to them?”

That was the question posed to the Bickley & Marotta listeners over Twitter on Thursday. And the responses came flooding in.

Since 98.7 FM Arizona’s Sports Station is indeed a sports program, many of the 200-plus responses were about fans meeting their favorite athletes. Some of the memories were so dull they were hilarious. Others were obscure.

Without fact-checking the truthfulness of our listeners’ messages, here are a select handful of the best stories of sports fans meeting the famous.
