Friendly Encounters: Michael Bradley and Hulk Hogan

This is a weekly series about my friends who have met celebrities.

Michael Bradley is the pride of New Orleans.  He is Mr. Year Round Tan.  He is the Crescent City Saint.  He is Malcolm West.  He's also a good dude and a friend.
I met Michael through Resistance Pro (a recurring theme in my life of late), but I probably saw him at comic cons before our RPro connection.  He is a comic con fan and a wrestling fan.
At C2E2 those paths crossed when he met Hulk Hogan .  Like him or not, Hulk is one of the most famous wrestlers of all time.  It doesn't get much bigger than the Hulkster.  I know the feeling Michael had, because Matt and I also met Hulk at C2E2.
Meeting wrestling royalty (or any genre's top people) is always unreal.  You don't have to be a huge fan to appreciate the significance, although being a fan puts it into a whole other level.
I know Michael will always appreciate that moment.  Stuff like this never gets old.
