Close Encounters of the Celebrity Kind…

I met a famous person!

Well…kinda famous.

Some of you may remember the high school comedy “Saved By the Bell“.  It ran in the 90’s and starred an impossibly good-looking group of kids and their principal.  Some of the kids have gone on to do great acting things, and others have become punch lines.  What are you going to do?

Anyway, one of my clients is a local minor league baseball team,  and last night was their Educator Appreciation Night.  Because they are my clients, I scored tickets to the game and the autograph signing with none other than Dennis Haskins, who played Mr. Belding on the beloved show.  Get it, because he played an educator on tv?  Funny, yes?

Now, you may have heard in the “news” (I’m using that term loosely) or seen on celebrity gossip pages that Haskins is a lecherous old man with a serious case of the grab-hands, so I wasn’t exactly sure what to expect.

He was seriously, the sweetest person ever, really nice and amazingly personable.  He patiently shook hands and took pictures with everyone and signed cast photos for us all.  If all celebrities were this nice to their fans, I think the whole world would be a much better place.

Happy Thursday!
