    He's coming to a book signing in Ridgewood New Jersey on the 20th. To anyone who's been to a previous outing, does he talk about Suburban Commando at all?
    I'm not much of a wrestling fan, but I've always thought he had great potential as a comedic actor [​IMG]...

    Sure. He'll probably be the biggest wrestling star ever.

    I don't consider myself to be a big wrestling fan but I'd go. It's be worth the price of a book just to say that he signed it for me.

    Rowdy Roddy Piper is coming to Lexington to sign books. I think I'll get my friend to bring his copy of They Live. [​IMG]

    When I was 12 or so my Parents saw Hulk Hogan in the airport and got his autograph for me. It is still back at home sitting in my old desk. They said he stuck out like a sore thumb wearing black leather pants, a skin tight Harley Davidson tank top, and of course a doo-rag (sp?). That and the fact he was surrounded by women. I can only imagine how dumb my dad must have felt interrupting the Hulkster getting his groove on with the ladies to ask for an autograph. Its the little things you look back at and really makes you appreciate how great your parents are.

    I still think Mr. Nanny should have beat Schindler's List for the 1993 Academy Award for movie of the year.

    A couple months ago I was in New York. I had just missed Hogan's appearance at the local Toys R' Us and am constantly reminded about the day as i missed greeting my old Hero. Seriously, hero. I'm so sad.

    Yeah, go ahead. Be sure to tell him "Hello" from his friends back in his home town (Augusta, GA).
    If you're real brave, ask him if he's going to try to get a guest appearance on "Law & Order: SVU". [​IMG]

    Did you see him? I read that he showed up several minutes early, brought along Jimmy Hart, and was very friendly.

    I saw Hulk Hogan on "The Tonight Show with Jay Leno" several years ago and the Hulkster was extremely funny. Aside from his wrestling persona, he seems like a down-to-earth and friendly guy.

    >Did you see him?>
    Unfortunatly, no. I didn't have the car for most of the day, and by the time I did get it, I figured he was probably long gone [​IMG].

    I'd go... I'm always looking for cheesy photo ops for my rec-room. A photo with the hulk would go right up there next to my autographed Wayne Newton.
