There's my buddy Glen Rylko with Chester Coppock. Glen is one of the good guys I have met through our pursuit of celebrities. He has met a bunch, many of whom I have not yet met. Fortunately, for this post, I have met Coppock, the Chicago broadcasting legend.
Celebrity chasres (for lack of a better term) always have a friendly rivalry. We are happy when our friends meet stars, but a little less if they are stars we want to meet but have not. Glen does a good job of meeting stars, athletes, wrestlers and more. He's definitely got me beat on White Sox players. I don't mind that, because he is more of a Sox fan than me.
Meeting Coppock is cool. He is truly larger than life, but he is also a nice guy. He'll gladly talk for a bit abot pretty much anything, but I love talking wrestling with the former wrestling announcer. I also like talking wrestling with Glen, who has a nice collection of classic wrestling memorabilia. I bet the thre of us would have an interesting conversation!
