STLToday.com mentions US Olympic snowboarder Shaun White attending an Oscar party and seeing Jimmy there.

As one of the U.S. Olympians that definitely did not stink, snow boarder Shaun White is living large these days. During a Wednesday visit to ESPN2’s “Cold Pizza” show, White gushed about his invites to the Oscar parties.

“I’m walking through this party and someone grabs me on the shoulder and I turn around and it’s Elton John,” White recalled. “I’m like, ‘Are you serious?’ And he’s like, ‘Yeah, man, way to go. Congrats!’ And I’m like [singing], ‘Bennie and the Jets!’

“I was all excited. It was insane to just meet some people like that. Even Jimmy Buffett was at the party . . . that was one of those things where I realized everybody’s just normal people and everybody watches the Olympics. It’s such an amazing event. It’s cool to have those people know my name. It was cool because I was in awe to meet them, and it seemed like some of them were just as excited to meet me.”
