So I had just gotten home from work and was walking down the street to go to the Grocery store when I walked past this restaurant at the corner of the street that had outside seating and saw Michael Phelps having dinner with some friends. I did not go up to him and ask for an autograph or picture because I thought it would be rude to interrupt his dinner with friends but I thought it was cool to be a block away from my house and run into a swimming legend whose hometown is the same as my own.

I said hi to Kristin Armstrong on a local mtn bike trail here in Boise a couple of weeks ago.

Bradley Wiggins' wife is racing 10 miles from my house tonight.  Who knows ol' sideburns himself may be there cheering her on!

Super cool on all counts but I think I trump you all. I am in Des Moines for the Hy-Vee 5150 and sat near Sister Madonna in the athlete meeting and got to fawn over/chat with her at packet pick up.

Looks like we need a separate "celebrity sightings" thread, which could be updated indefinitely. This would be similar to the ones that the folks at flyertalk.com maintain, except that to qualify, you need to either:

(i) Encounter a famous S/B/Rer while doing anything
(ii) Encounter any celebrity S/B/Ring

... this would mean that seeing Michael Phelps in a bar would count, as would seeing Paul Ryan out on a 20-mile run (sorry, couldn't resist), but seeing Kobe in the airport would not.

What if Kobe was running to catch his flight?

I think that's pretty cool that you did, but, how is this tri-related and not COJ posting material?

I talked to Diane Keaton while she and I were spectating an Open Water swim race at Tower 29 a few weeks ago...
