Another EPIC weekend in the books!! I had the pleasure of meeting Jonathan and the Triplett family as they were making their way to the Newport Aquarium for a family trip. Jon had an impressive Hart Foundation replica jacket that was already littered with priceless signatures from the likes of Bret Hart and Anvil. On the left side you can see where Bret Hart signed my father's name with a little halo next to it as well as honoring all of the deceased members of the Hart Foundation!
Below that I signed my name along with the tagline "Forever Flyin" as my gift to Jon. I was beyond honored to receive a gift from Jon as well, his only piece of signed Flyin Brian memorabilia in his collection. I insisted he keep it but he felt better knowing I had it, that's not something a "fan" would do, that's something a FRIEND would do!! Saturday I embarked west toward Lasalle Illinois right outside of Chicago for an All American Wrestling (AAW) premier event. I was greeted with exceptional hospitality as well as a ride to and from the venue from my friend and professional wrestling promoter/journalist Michael Blanton and his sweet wife and little girl. Michael also graciously introduced me to the booking manager/CEO of AAWrestling!
Connecting with people on social media is one thing, but meeting them in person and really forming a personable friendship is so much more powerful and memorable!! Get out there and #growyourcircle
