Friendly Encounters: Gary Clark and Mark Bodek

This is a weekly series featuring friends who have met celebrities.

Mark Bodek is a DC area friend I met through wrestling personality Terri Runnels.  Mark has worked with her and other wrestling stars over the years.
He is a big sports fan, especially of the DC teams.  He was especially happy meeting Washington Redskins legend Gary Clark.  He described it as "Such a thrill for me since I grew up watching him win Super Bowl 22 and Super Bowl 26 with the Skins "
That's cool.  I know that feeling of meeting your favorites.  That is extra cool when that person brought a sports championship to your area.  I feel that way about my 1985 Chicago Bears.
He has met a bunch of others, including wrestlers, athletes and entertainers.  Mark can often be seen at Washington Nationals games.  One day, maybe I'll catch a game with him.  Until then, I will keep enjoying his pictures with various stars.
