People I Knew/Know With Wikipedia ArticlesEdit

Close encounters of the Wikipedia kind:

Charles Bronson (cut in front of me in a hot dog line at my junior high school), Lance Pitlick (ran into him during a tour of Ottawa – and he signed the 1997-1998 Senators Team Picture), Cam Ward (my cousin sold his house while I worked at his office), Ruth Klüger (at an invitational dinner), Moving Units, Rooney and The Format (I've done logistics for their concerts at UCSD), Michael Craig Hillmann (faculty/grad school mixers at UT), William Powers, Jr. (spoke with him briefly at graduate student event at UT), William S. Livingston (had a fifteen minute conversation with him at the same event), David Buss (turns out that he's the father of one of my long-time friends), Kevin Martin (got to shake his hand and congratulate his gold medal win after we shared a flight to Edmonton), David Dorward (met him at a charity golf tournament), Brooklyn Lee (do you really want to know?), Penn & Teller (Vegas of course!), Nimrod Shapira Bar-Or (sat in front of my wife on a flight), James Rolfe (at the screening of his movie), Deborah Hertz (history department events), Steve Ballmer (at a wedding), John Leguizamo (front row seats at one of his shows), Zeina Mina (presented at the same conference as me), Bob Miller (baseball, born 1926) (turns out he's the father of a family friend), Ahmed Goneim and Sherif El-Erian (during the course of my doctoral research).

I'm not related to anyone famous, but apparently Doug Main is my mother's mother's sister's son's wife's mother's sister's daughter's husband's father, which makes us absolutely nothing, in case you were wondering.

  The 50 DYK Creation and Expansion Medal
So fifty DYKs - thats not so easy - its three years since you had a 25DYK but so many barnstars!. All those sporting articles and many of them about the Olympics and some about people, sometimes both and sometimes just a random subject. And you have such a nationalistic tag Paul but you seem to hit the sporting map with a pin - nice. If you have done 50 DYKs then you have probably nominated another 50 articles so that is a 100 that you have helped with. So thank you again and if you have enjoyed this award then pass it on to another of our contributors. Thanks from me and the wiki. Victuallers (talk) 18:55, 20 August 2013 (UTC)
