    Inspired by a Fenian post in Journalism Topics Only...

    Who have you bought drinks for?

    At the old Comiskey Park a guy I went to college with used to be a beer vendor. He'd come by and when he mentioned a celebrity was on hand we'd send a beer down...On one homestand I bought beers for Faye Vincent and Tom Selleck.

    As soon as I buy a drink for Keith Richards my life will have been fulfilled.

    Fuck that ... they should buy me drinks like Drew Carey. They can afford it.

    Seriously, I doubt I would ever buy a celebrity a drink for just being present anywhere. If I were in a conversation with one, I could see myself offering a frosty beverage. But for just showing up? Nuh-uh.

    DISCLAIMER -- Drew Carey did not actually buy me a drink, but someone posted about him buying beers for a section of American fans at the World Cup.

    Yeah, I've actually discussed this with a number of people, but it's amazing how when someone becomes rich, people start giving him or her things for free. Hey, screw that, I love your work or whatever, but buy your own freakin' beer.

    BTW, I saw Drew Carey on one of those late night shows recently -- can't remember which one, they're all the same -- where he talked about how he used to forget he was rich. He'd call up his buddies to help him move or something similar, and one of them would ask why he didn't just call a mover. Drew said he'd stop and say, `Oh yeah, I forgot! I'm rich!'

    Jack Bauer doesn't need beer bought for him, because it would take too long and he is RUNNING OUT OF TIME! He just takes it and kneecaps anyone who gives him resistance.

    One time when I was in California, I bought a beer for famed SI swimsuit model Kathy Ireland.

    Of course. . . . Kathy never showed so I drank it myself.

    Once, a million moons ago. I did buy a round for Billy Joel and his band. They all signed a napkin for my girlfriend, who in more recent years has become my wife.

    She claims she has lost that napkin. Damn it.

    You think she's holding out on you so she gets it in the divorce? :p
