Friendly Encounters

This is another in a series of meetings of my friends and celebs.

I have seen pictures of Ira Knobler with various wrestlers on many sites. Recently while perusing Michele Mupo's site, I came across Ira again and decided to ask him to share one of his experiences.
I was working for a magazine, in which I interviewed David Smith's mother Diana Hart. When I got to the Hart Dynasty signing at the Cold Stone Creamery, David remembered me from his mom, from I guess a picture with him and his mom from a convention or because we are friends on Facebook.
This Hart Dynasty is actually a second generation of the Hart family, consisting of Nattie Neidhart, David (DH) Smith and TJ (Tyson Kidd) Wilson. David is the son of the late British Bulldog Davey Boy Smith. Nattie is the daughter of Jim Neidhart. TJ is Nat's boyfriend. All currently wrestle for the WWE.
Ira's site is and is loaded with pictures, stories and events announcements. It's a fantastic treat for wrestling fans, but it goes outside of the squared circle, too. There are hundreds of searchable pictures among everything else.
I hope Ira will be willing to share more of his stories and pictures in the future. Thanks, Ira!
