My Brush with Greatness

I once rode in an elevator with Joe Dimaggio. 
It was in the late 60s/early 70s in the Union Square garage in San Francisco. 

It was the Xmas season.  He was carrying an armload of wrapped Xmas presents. 
There were 3 or 4 other people in the elevator.  Joltin' Joe was a very reserved person
and said nothing to anyone (elevators encourage non-communication anyway). 
But he was the greatest person I ever shared an elevator with.
I also rode on a cable car in S.F. once with Bing Crosby (nobody recognized him but me);
and sat next to Charles Barkley on a flight from S.F. to Houston (he slept all the way).
Ah, three brushes with greatness.

Ralph, thanks for that.
