So I was wandering around Wizard World Chicago (a giant comic book convention) yesterday when I stumbled upon a table sitting underneath a banner which read, "WWF Superstar Virgil." No one was at Virgil's table, so I figured I would go talk to him. He was a nice enough guy, but all he wanted to do was sell me a $20 autographed photo, which makes sense 'cause that's what he was there for. Never really having the desire to own an autographed Virgil photo I tried to make some excuses, but he kept insisting. Eventually he called me a "chicken" for not wanting his picture (which I didn't really understand). So things were a little awkward, and I didn't know what else to say, so I pointed to a picture of him, Ted Diabase and Andre the Giant on the table, and in reference to Andre said, "so he was pretty big, huh?" Of course it was a stupid question, so he answered it appropriately by saying, "yeah, he was HUGE," in a tone like I was an idiot.
So that was my big brush with fame. Today and Tomorrow Al Snow will be at Wizard World, but I don't know if I am going to make it back there. I wonder if Al will be charging $20 a shot and trying to indimidate people into getting one.

I'd planned to goto this & decided to stay in town instead after I found out some joke of promoter was going to run the show. Apparently, this has happened before with someone else in the same area & this guy happened to do the same thing.
