The Famous and the Flashy


I mentioned on Sunday's post that I'd show you a few people I caught on camera at Friday's Phoenix Suns game.  First up is Michael Phelps the most decorated Olympian of all time.  He holds a total of 28 medals, 23 of which are gold.


Next was Bubba Watson.  I'm betting you golfers out there will know who he is.  I'm not a golfer but, I do remember seeing the video of him whacking a ball out of the sand trap and straight into the hole.


I don't know who this guy is but his flashy and sparkly jacket was a real eye catcher.  He did attract a lot of attention but I'm not sure if he is someone famous or if that jacket was the draw.


These shots don't do that jacket justice.  It sparkled like an ice skaters tutu!

I recognise Michael Phelps... everybody has happy faces so it must have been a good game!
That jacket added lots of pizzazz!

Nice photos, I remember Michael Phelps very well. A glittering jacket of the other man!

Love the jacket! I always admire someone who can pull off a particularly flashy bit of fashion. I have no idea who Bubba Watson is!

I wouldn't have recognized any of those people. I do remember Michael Phelps but wouldn't have known it was him. That jacket must be his idea of bling.

Phelps is pretty recognizable. As is Bubba. Bubba, though, is a crier. His momma follows him around the golf course to help him get through the rough times. The guy in the jacket needs some help getting dressed! :) Fun times, Sharon!

It shows you how much attention I pay to golf: there's a pro named Bubba?

Lois said...

Interesting photos Sharon. That jacket is pretty amazing!

I recognized Phelps and know the name of Watson but the guy in the jacket is a mystery!

Catalyst said...

Phelps and Watson, yes. But the guy with the jacket and the blonde is a mystery. He must have money, though.

Catalyst said...

BTW, the lady with Phelps is his wife, the former Nicole Johnson, Miss California USA 2010, a model who competed in the Miss USA pageant. (I didn't know that, I found it on the web.)

I recognized Phelps too but never heard of Bubba. Some great shots Sharon. Jacketman probably just wants attention, you can't miss the jacket that's for sure. :)

Sharon's blog: the last talking blog... Nice bunch of famous and flashy people.

What fun Sharon.. the guy in the flashy coat obviously isn't the shy type 😀😀

Kate said...

Surrounded by celebrities of all kinds! Phelps looks so much older now than when I first saw him in the Olypics; I suppose because he is older!!

Michael Phelps is very recognizable. I would have recognized him. (One of my regular golf partners is Mike Phelps and he is SO sick of Michale Phelps jokes.) I know who Bubba Watson is, too, but they always wear golf hats so they look quite different in real life. The guy in the jacket? Just someone with more money than taste.
