For the rooster (Foghorn) regarding wrasslin'

Have you watched the HBO feature on Andre the Giant and the ESPN 30 for 30 on The Nature Boy, Ric Flair?

Both worth the time.

I saw the Flair 30 for 30. That was a great piece. I'll watch it again.

Haven't seen the Andre one yet.



As a side not-I saw Andre early in his WWF career at a dump called Jack Witschi's Sports Arena in Attleboro , Mass. (bleachers and the good seats were folding chairs with the ringside seats being ripped with the stuffing falling out movie theater type seats) The place stunk of beer and urine and sweat) Anyway,as he left the ring on his way back to the locker room I managed to pat him on the back. He was fucking huge but I doubt he was over 7 feet. Probably more like 6'8" but his massive proportions make him look like a beast.

The wife and I watched the André special this week. Worth the time.

I saw Hulk Hogan and Andre here in Nashville in probably 1898 or 90. Got to about 10 feet away from both as they entered the ring. Hulk was big, but Andre was HUGE! I'll never forget it.
