Worlds of Fun Is a State of Mind
"In the summer of 1994, I was an intern for the Kansas City Royals. One night during a game, I ran into [Mark Paul-Gosselaar] in the stadium press box. He was in town making an appearance at a Six Flags-type place called Worlds of Fun. He was a nice guy and signed an autograph for my sister." (Posted: January 2002)
Saved by the Bell--Again
"It was June 1998. My friend and I were at the Detroit Grand Prix, and we noticed Mark-Paul Gosselaar in the next grandstand. When the race was over, we went down to the grandstand entrance to meet him. He had his Dead Man on Campus hair -- flat black -- and he was almost unrecognizable. As he came out, I asked if he was Mark, and he replied that he was. I asked him that since my friend had been an admirer of his for quite some time, if he would have a minute for a picture. He hesitated, and then agreed! ... After small talk, and a big Hollywood smile from him, I took the picture, thanked him and he hurried off." (Posted: August 2001)
