An ex-pro boxer, guys were always doing that with my dad. Anyway, I was too young to know the difference between a fight and playing and I came to my dad's aid. How do you think Vic hits all those high notes, huh?

Ths might be only of interest to you and other Pgher's but I've met Art Rooney, Fritzie Zivic and Billy Conn, two ex-champs, Willie Stargell, the sweetest guy in the world, Chuck Knoll, a nice man but just as expressionless in everyday life as he was on the sidelines, and Joe "Handyman" Negri, from Mr. Rogers. Joe did that show strictly for a payday, as you might imagine. The guy's a top-notch jazz guitarist. I've met alotta people from the worlds of sports and music.
No.....Met Bob in Dc when I lived there.

Ahh, I see! I was at a Wrestlemania in Florida when I met Lenny. He had already wrestled and was sitting in a corner, I asked if I could go up to him and have him sign an autograph for me, he was kind of nice about it, he just held the pen up to me (motioning for me to take the cap off), signed, then just gave the paper back to me. He never said anything to me. Oh well!

I met or sort of waved at Evander Holifield at a Picadilly in College Park, Ga. I didn't want to like run up on him for an autograph while he was eating so, he smiled and I nodded.
