Yesterday Brooke & I had the surreal experience of visiting the home of  famous wrestler Adrian Street. I purchased some memorabilia from him and got to see his original paintings. Him and his wife Linda are very creative people and very nice. The photo of me with them is taken in the room where they make all of their custom wrestling outfits which are sold all over the world. They made the ring wear for Mickey Rourke in the movie The Wrestler and also the new GLOW series on Netflix. Even though Adrian's character was extremely theatrical and over the top, he was a legitimate wrestler and a one of a kind performer. He even demonstrated a few wrestling moves on me while i was there! My neck is still hurting from the headlock/neck crank. OUCH. It was a real privilege to spend some time with my favorite pro-wrestler ever.

I glad Adrian Street didn't throw you through a wall.
