“Grab James and come on!” and tells me why.
I grab the boy, we hop in the car. He’s asking what the surprise is all the way there, but I won’t tell him.
Ivan Koloff, The Russian Bear, a pro wrestler from back when I was a kid was over there signing autographs.
Here’s our poloroid of us.
I don’t think he cares much for the way Pro Wresting is these days.
He was incredibly friendly, and we yacked a bit about the old wrestlers.
I remember hating him, then loving him, back and forth as the storyline progressed.
He’s probably best known in tandem with his real life nephew, Nikita Koloff.

Best Wishes my friends

(Dylan is a friend of James that we happened to bump into there.)
Those were the days. Summer was forever, girls were suddenly fascinating and mysterious, the good guy always won, and Pro Wrestling was real.
