At the recent Days of the Dead Indianapolis, everyone was surprised to see wrestler Jake "The Snake" Roberts at the host hotel. Roberts was not there as part of the DotD lineup, but was there for his The Unspoken Word tour at a nearby location.
Unfortunately, I wasn't at the hotel yet, but many of my DotD friends got pictures with Roberts. From all reports, he was very cool. Judging by the many pictures I saw, he posed with a lot of people. How very cool of him.
DotD volunteer and my bud Troy Babbs got his picture with Roberts. He posted it on Facebook Troy did not list it as "literally the best day of the year," as he usually does, but probably only because so much great stuff was happening at DotD that he couldn't give that honor to just one picture.
Meeting Roberts might have been just luck, but it is also another example of the extra fun that can always be had at DotD. You never know what wil happen, but it is always a special few days.
Troy is also a great example of the fine people of the DotD crew. Troy works very hard at whatever assignment he has, but he also has a lot of fun with guests and attendees. Troy is a great guy who has helped me with pictures at a few events.
Roberts started the DotD weekend, but there was a lot more fun in the next few days. It was another great DotD. I already am looking forward to the next Days event in Chicago on November 16-18. Check DaysoftheDead.com for more info and check back here for recurring updates.
