My dad has started to get into meeting celebrities. Oh he claims he is doing it to help me, but I am pretty sure he is enjoying it like I do. (I also have a small suspicion that he is planning on starting his own celebrity website to compete with Johngy's Beat). He has met players from the four major sports, but in June, he really entered my territory by meeting pro wrestler Grin.
Okay, I admit that I asked him to go meet Grin. I could not make the event and I figured my dad would like to help out JohngysBeat.com. Besides, I kept picturing my dad with this face-painted grappler.
Grin is a highly entertaining wrestler and he wears face paint. I first met him about a year ago. He is as cool outside of the ring as he is talented inside the squared circle. I thought he might get a kick out of meeting my dad.
My dad took it seriously (always the professional). He even broke out his JohngysBeat.com shirt. I swear I did not make him wear it.
Both Grin and my dad reported back to me that they enjoyed the encounter. I know I certainly enjoy seeing the picture of these two together.
