Most of the celebrities and performers on hand at Barack Obama's Invesco Field at Mile High acceptance speech no doubt came and went through entrances as special as they are. I was surprised, then, that during a walk on the stadium's general access lower level with my daughter, Lora, we stumbled upon singer/actress Jennifer Hudson, who would deliver a scorching version of the National Anthem a few hours later. She'd clearly made a wrong turn, winding up in the middle of the masses, and she desperately wanted out -- so I chased after her to get the super-flattering photo here. Afterward, Lora told me it was really cool seeing Hudson up-close, except for the part where I acted like a stalking asshole. Welcome to my world. -- Michael Roberts
