Last Friday night, Bob Miller said he took his brother- and sister-in-law, who were in town visiting from Wisconsin, down to Hollywood Boulevard to check out the space they had planned to lay in a terrazzo-and- bronze star with his name on it.
When the Kings' Hall of Fame broadcaster found the spot in front of the Hollywood Wax Museum near the corner of Hollywood and Highland, it was covered in plastic, with a barricade around it.
Nevertheless, Miller's sister-in-law wanted to take a picture of it.
Right about then, a woman with her grown daughter came up to the site.
``I wonder who's star this is going to be?'' the mother said aloud.
Miller didn't want to give away that it was going to be his. But he finally said, ``Actually, it's mine.''
The woman said, ``Yeah, right.''
