Made Chipper's Day!

I was able to introduce my youngest son Chipper to Lou Ferigno, (The Incredible Hulk)!

He was the guest speaker at the Athens Area Chamber of Commerce Benefit Dinner this past Saturday.  Rob Preston, the CC director, asked me to come and be the emcee for the evening.

We arrived just as the VIP's were finishing getting their pictures taken.  We came in the library there at the McMinn County High School and was introduced to Lou.  He is a monster of a man (size wise), but a Gentle Giant in spirit.

While we were waiting for the dinner to begin, Chipper and I got to hang out with him for 45 minutes.  It was really cool.

Lou Ferigno lost a good bit of his hearing due to ear infections when he was a baby.  He and Chipper shared a lot in common, both suffering from hearling loss.

It really made Chipper's Day!  Pictures are coming soon!
