Hacksaw Jim Duggan Choked Johngy

I have previously written about the adventures of Hacksaw Jim Duggan and Laurie. While Laurie had special moments with Duggan, I had a little bit of fun courtesy of ol' Hacksaw.
After he saw Laurie and joked with her a bit, I asked for a picture with him. As I leaned in, I was surprised to feel his big hands wrap around my neck. I must admit, he wasn't the first person to attempt to choke the life out of me, but he was probably the most able to do it. This guy is big, in a thick sort of way. He played college football at SMU about 30 years ago. He isn't in football shape anymore, but he's big and meaty. His hands were like canned hams.
We ran into Duggan several times over the course of the convention and he was always happy to talk to anyone. With Duggan, it never seemed to be an act. He is genuinely a nice guy.
Jim Duggan and me in St. Petersburg, FL-January 2005.
