Fun Times @ Fanboy Expo Knoxville Comic Con

Captain's Log:  Over the weekend, I got to experience my first ever Comic Con at the Fanboy Expo in Knoxville.  Man, I had a blast!  If you enjoy wrestling, comics and television this was the place to be.  There was something for everybody as the iconic William Shatner was in the building as well as Billy Dee Williams, "Mini Me" Verne Troyer, "Superman" Dean Cain, "I Dream of Jeannie" Barbara Eden, "Mary Ann" from Gilligan's Island, Dawn Wells, "Flash Gordon" Sam J. Jones, Lea Thompson, Micky Dolenz from The Monkees and the stars from The Dukes of Hazzard! 

As far as wrestlers that were in attendance:  Scott Hall and Kevin Nash were there as well as Jeff Hardy, Buff Bagwell, Ricky Morton & Robert Gibson, The Rock 'n' Roll Express, Chase Stevens, Angelina Love, Crazzy Steve, Ricky "The Dragon" Steamboat and the 16X World Champion and 2X Hall of Famer "Nature Boy" Ric Flair.  Woooooo!!!

It was so awesome being there alongside my brother, Ricky as he met his hero 

Ricky wasn't the only one "Stylin' and Profilin'" in a custom made robe

One highlight was seeing everyone that was dressed up in their favorite costume

Meeting Ricky "The Dragon" Steamboat
Next was a real treat as I met the stunning and feisty New Yorker, GinaMarie Zimmerman, runner-up from Big Brother Season 15.  Total sweetheart.

Later on, while meeting Jeff Hardy, he saw my autograph picture from GinaMarie and this sparked a surprise Big Brother conversation with "The Charismatic Enigma".

Smiles and excitement everywhere.  It reminded me of my first WrestleMania experience, making me feel like a little kid again.  Can't beat the sheer joy that was present in Knoxville.  Just some Good Ol' Calls!!!
