Dinner with anyone ... Top-3

Discussion in 'Anything goes' started by Jeff_Rake, Nov 30, 2006.

    A few of us had this discussion today: if you could have dinner with anyone -- past or present -- who would it be?

    My Top-3:

    1. Dick Vermeil (favorite person, ever)
    2. Meatloaf (incredible passion for what he does)
    3. Norman Fell (Mr. Roper from Three's Company ... sense of humor unmatched.)

    *Others came up with Chick Hearn, Charles Schulz, Mike Royko, and ... sadly, Toni Kukoc.

    Who you got? Top-3.

    Allen Iverson would be there for me. I know that.

    Yeah, I ain't doing lunch. It's gonna be dinner and we're hittin' the town afterwards.

    My 3:

    Keith Moon
    Abraham Lincoln

    You gotta figure you're in for some fun with Moon and Madonna. And I'm thinking we can even get Abe to go clubbin'....or at least pubbing.

    I had to pass on lunch with a dead man. It would just be plain awkward. Norm's not much of a conversationalist these days.

    My three (in no particular order):
    Bill Clinton, John Glenn, Chuck Yeager.

    Honorable mention:
    Mrs. Killick (whomever she may be).
    Osama bin Laden (just to pull a Michael Corleone on his ass.)

    Barack Obama
    Charles Barkley
    Michael Jordan

    Honorable Mention to: Chris Jones and Charles Pierce (If they picked up the tab and I could pick their brains about writing).

    Barkley and Jordan would be a lock, if you could somehow guarantee you'd get the gambling, shit-talking, fun Jordan and not boring corporate Jordan.

    Oh, and screw dinner: We're playing golf. I might actually be able to take some cash off Sir Charles, even if Jordan would bankrupt me.

    I'd have to throw in Keira Knightley to round out the group...she wouldn't even have to talk.

    Wow, just three. Hmmm.

    And this is dinner:
    1. Roger Clemens (favourite athlete, ever)
    2. George W. Bush (so I could a) call him a liar to his face and b) ask "What the fuck were you thinking and who the fuck were you listening to?")
    3. Will Ferrell (circa 1990s SNL, funny as shit, and I think he can/could party all night long)

    Additional honorable mention: Pauly Perrette, the goth chick from NCIS. She's... intriguing. Also, she hangs with Diane Farr ("Rescue Me," "NUMB3RS"), and that sounds like a fun duo to hang with.

    I'm sure now that she knows she's almost good enough to go to lunch with you that you'll get a threesome outta that for sure.

    Killick Well-Known Member

    Hey, now. I'm not greedy. Nobody suggested a threesome. I'd be perfectly happy to just watch. :)
    Thought about Obama, but he's been pretty open with the media and his books. I like him alot, but... wouldn't be in my top 3.
    Clinton just has that... presidential aura.
    Glenn and Yeager -- Just tough and smart buzzcuts who could tell some great and interesting stories.
