Wrestling Champs The Nasty Boys January, 2012. These guys were a ton of fun sharing truly “nasty” stories from wrestling events to wedding celebrations – what a ball for all.
Baltimore Orioles Rochester Red Wings: Bobby Bonner December, 2011. Mr. Bonner shared silly stories of jokes played on and by Cal Ripken Jr. during their playing days like nailing cleats to the ceiling and a mitt to the centerfield scoreboard.
New York Yankees Chris “Cito” Culver December, 2011. Mr. Culver donated his time and fees to raise money for the Tyler Putnam Foundation – a class act at only 19 years old.
Wrestling Champ Brutus “The Barber” Beefcake October, 2011. Beefcake loved giving the reverse Mohawk haircut to opponents who did not work well with him in the ring.
Baltimore Orioles Rochester Red Wings: Joe Altobelli and Floyd Rayford August, 2011. These two humble men had wonderful stories to share about teammate Mark Flanagan who had just passed away.
Rochester Americans Chris Taylor May, 2011. All proceeds were donated to the family of Amerks’ great Craig Charron. Mr. Taylor kept me captivated with stories from playing in Germany to his NHL days with the Islanders, Bruins and Sabres. One fan brought a game-used stick that Mr. Taylor gave her when she was ten years old sitting in the stands.
AFL Buffalo Bills Ernie Warlick, Sullivan “Pete” Mills and Will Fowler March, 2011. This was a thrill to have three AFL players together. They drove through some slippery roads for this signing not to disappoint Bills’ fans.
NFL Buffalo Bills Chris Williams and Will Grant February, 2011. Mr. Grant told me stories that I can never repeat or he will hurt me and Mr. Williams met local family at the show and now his nephew is a card collector.
Bowling Hall of Famer Millie Ignizio January, 2011. Ms. Ignizio was the first women on tour to bowl a perfect “300” game! A legend in the United States from Rochester, New York.
Wrestling Champion / NCAA SU college star Dick Beyer / The Destroyer / Doctor X December, 2010. Mr. Beyer schooled the promoter and fans alike with some basic Japanese lingo such us “Destroyer ichiban” which means he is number one. Some great stories from football at Syracuse football to present day movies about Ernie Davis – what a treat for Rochester fans.
