I recently wrote a piece on the stories people tell about their brushes with fame. Cities, too, have their stories, and they love to share them just as much. Phoenix Metro is very proud of its local celebrities, and rightly so. We've got some dandies: Stevie Nicks, Alice Cooper, Steven Spielberg, Pat Tillman, Emma Stone. My favorite local celebrity -- a personal hero of mine, really -- is Ted Tucker. I heard you, who? Ted Tucker is probably glad you're asking that question. He's intensely media-shy, refusing to be photographed for the precious few interviews he's given. Considering what he's managed to accomplish, I suspect he could actually be Batman.
