The Other Boss

Tuesday, January 30th, 2018

I returned with my Dad from North Carolina, WrestleCade, and Fort Bragg (and a couple of Diners, Drive-Ins and Drives for good measure) on the evening of Monday, November 28, 2016, to the smiling face of Carolyn who was dragging Christmas tree stuff upstairs, and some delightful little muffins. But that’s not all I returned to: I had a pretty unbelievable celebrity encounter coming up the next day, and as you’ve probably guessed from the photo, it was with the Boss himself. No, not Hal Roach, not Carolyn, not Silas, not my boss Debbie from work… this was THE Boss that everyone knows.  Read the rest of this entry »

The day after Thanksgiving 2016, my Dad and I embarked on our second WrestleCade road trip. This time we decided to add an extra day and an extra location to visit. Dad had long talked about going back to check out Fort Bragg and nearby Fayetteville where he had been stationed during his Army days. It worked out that I had enough vacation time remaining for the year so that I could take two days off instead of one, so I mapped it out so that we could check out the base. We left the morning of Friday, November 25, this time planning to travel all the way to the Winston-Salem, North Carolina vicinity where WrestleCade would be held.  Read the rest of this entry »

Return of the nWo

Monday, January 29th, 2018

If you have a razor sharp memory, you might recall that about five years ago I did a posting on the nWo (New World Order) wrestling days that I fondly recall from around 1996-1997, and I chronicled my meeting with Kevin “Diesel” Nash, as well as with Booker T. Since those five years have passed, my list of wrestler encounters have blown up exponentially, mostly thanks to three separate visits to WrestleCade in North Carolina. Among those encounters, there were a handful from that delightful era of WCW wrestling, and more specifically to this posting, that had been members of the nWo. You can click that link above to go back and read about my enjoyment of that wrestling era, but for the purposes of this posting, I’ll combine most – but not all – of the nWo encounters I’ve had over those missing years.  Read the rest of this entry »
