    Is Pete famous, infamous or both?

    Well...my hotel was the site of MTV's "Spring Break" party....so I saw a bunch of rappers and MTV people. I'm not sure that they'd be considered celebs...

    I saw Pauly D from Jersey Shore
    Snoop Dogg
    Whiz Khalifa (spelling?)
    Drake
    2 people from the Real World tv show
    1 girl from Flavor of Love



    Fun weekend!! Wish it wasn't over, that's for sure...

    He owns a sports memorabilia shop right next to Casa Fuente in the Caesars Shops area, I think he signs autographs there every day.

    I saw Roger Penske at the NASCAR race. We were less than 10 feet away on the roof at the start. My friend's brother used his connections to get us into a suite complete with food and beer. It was a helluva good deal.

    I was more excited to see Hondo than I was Pete Rose. Hondo is the Zags' experience!

    Alas, wanted to be in Vegas but was in the Napa Valley running a marathon. Ran into Natalie Portman while wine tasting one night, though, just a few days after she won her Oscar (she wasn't tasting in her pregnant condition, only accompanying someone who was buying a bunch of good wine)

    Default Tyra

    Tyra forgot to mention that he saw Fonebone quite a bit. Probably a bit too much in fact.
