Thursday afternoon, someone at the AP Sports desk accidentally emailed out the entire contents of their Rolodex. Of course, it's found its way all over the 'Net now, including a pointer to http://www.okayplayer.com/ dcforum/DCForumID16/21336.html which ended up on Scott Christ's Delphi forum (forums.delphiforums.com), where I saw it. And now, I pass it on to you!

(DISCLAIMER: Crank calling celebrities is bad)

If you're REALLY bored, you could try using these phone numbers to get some snail mail addresses out of Google, instead.

(DISCLAIMER: Crank mailing, or visit-with-intent-to-stalking celebrities is also bad)

The only hockey players I saw on a quick run through were John Davidson and Bobby Orr. Typical!

No Mia Hamm or Kristi Yamaguchi, either.

Not much good calling Tug McGraw(may he rest in peace).

I'm curious to hear any fallout from this goof-up.

I wonder how many times the George W. Bush and George Steinbrenner numbers have been dialed today.

Yeah, there seem to be quite a few names on that list for whom attempting to contact would require the use of an ultra-long distance carrier. I also noticed that many of the New York City phone numbers are sans area code (hinting that they were recorded at a time long since gone when you didn't need an area code to call a New York City number from a New York City phone). Therefore, it looks to me like this is a pretty antiquated list, at least as far as the top alphabetical portion goes. The second part (that is, the listings after Don Zimmer) look like more recent additions specific to the reporter's usual assignments in the Seattle area, and most of those are already easily obtainable. Oh well; for his sake I hope they don't come down too hard on him.

I agree with the old list, Joe Torre still has a St. Louis phone number, and I doubt he'd still live there all this time when he manages the Yankees.

No Iginla? For shame! The only celeb I'd want to call, and his number isn't here.

Why do I have a feeling someone might turn to Homer now that they have these numbers

Some Random Wiener: Is this Dusty Baker?
Dusty: yeah
SRW: GOOD!
Dusty: How did you get this number?
SRW: SHUT UP! Now if anyone knew how to get some Tang around here I figured it was you....

and so on and so forth

I'd call Carl Lewis and ask him how it felt to be given the gold medal for 100m in '88 by default. Then I would ask him if he felt guilty considering he was more dopped up then an East German swimmer...


.....still very very bitter...
