This spot features some of the worst still shots of anchors I've seen in awhile. Almost everyone looks bad, in my opinion.

Brush with Greatness

I was having breakfast the other morning with some friends and the subject of meeting celebrities came up. Being in TV... we all get a chance to meet famous people. So I thought I'd throw it out to you guys and ask -- what's your best celebrity story?

I have two. First, I got a chance to write promos for George Bush Sr. to read. Kinda cool to have your words delivered by the former leader of the free world. No matter how you feel about politics -- working with a President has to be considered cool, right? He even signed one of my scripts.

The second was meeting comedy icon Bill Cosby. Anyone who knows me well knows I love comedy -- so the chance to meet the Cos was a thrill. He did NOT call me "brilliant", as the president so graciously wrote. Bill Cosby called me an asshole. It was a joke. I think.

What's your favorite "brush with greatness" story?
