Well, I can die now after having met William Shatner in person… it came about randomly while getting groceries in Edina, Minnesota.
I was driving down to get groceries at the Edina Cub Foods store after work on this Friday afternoon. I had the radio on and they were interviewing Shatner. He suddenly says that he’s in town that evening on a ‘roadshow’ for some new movie he was appearing in. The idea was that he was going from major city to major city trying to open the movie to generate interest/box office one city at a time.
So he says “I’ll be at the new Crowne Theatres in ED-E-na this evening at 6:30pm” I glance at the clock and it’s 5:30pm. I finish buying groceries and figure, “What the heck.” And drive across the street to Southdale, where the theatre was located. Sure enough, a few minutes after I walked in, Shatner appears. I had nothing for him to sign and I stood in line (or cut it?) to shake his hand. He looked good for a guy who was probably 70 at that time. Shockingly good in fact.
