Friendly Encounters

This is a weekly series about friends who have met celebs.

I originally met Kerry Huffman through Facebook.  We shared a few friends and an interest in wrestling. I was very impressed by the many wrestlers he has met.  I am also impressed by his weight loss of over 70 pounds.  That takes a lot of work and I applaud his effort!
I saw Kerry was going to be at the Steel City Comic Con earlier this year and I asked him to share a picture and story here.  Kerry quickly agreed and I asked him about meeting Dennis Haskins, perhaps best known for his role as Principal Belding on tv's Saved By the Bell.
Kerry sent the picture of him with Haskins and replied with the following:
Took my daughter to the show and he was super nice. Was telling a story about a stunt he did on the Dukes of Hazzard. Very cordial and seems like a great guy. Asked him about him singing kareoki at his favorite bar, and gave a chuckle saying "yes, it's my Cheers." I'd recommend if you're a fan and get the chance to meet him, do it.
I hadn't known that Haskins appeared on The Dukes of Hazzard, but he did.  Actually Haskins has had plenty of roles in his 30 or so years of acting, but he'll always be Mr. Belding to me.
I appreciate Kerry sharing this picture and his thoughts.  I hope to have more of Kerry here in the future.
