    He's not someone who is famous to people in the UK, but my uncle is Phil Simms, who is a former New York Giants quarterback. He was a double Super Bowl winner and was MVP (Most Valuable Player) during Super Bowl XXI (1987).

    Uncle Phil is now a sportscaster for CBS.

    My cousin Chris (Phil's son) is also a professional NFL player, currently playing for Denver Broncos.

    Yeah, I vaguely know some famous people via my sister (who acts) inasmuch as I'm friends with them on Facebook and I've met them a couple of times. One person who's an international movie star :yep:

    Pretty cool?

    Edit to add, some kid from my secondary school has been on TV as a "hot prospect" for London 2012.
