Subject: RE: BS: Wrestling in the 50/60/early 70ties
Dusty Rhodes.............My brother-in-law (Bob) lives in Roswell, GA., a classy Atlanta 'burb........Well off family, went to Annapolis then Georgia Tech, is an aerospace engineer with Lockheed and works for what's left of their skunkworks, almost 30 years on the job, makes a ton of money........a smart guy (but a typical engineer that would spend three weeks organizing a two car motorcade).

So the family is at dinner one evening in some restaurant and Dusty comes in. Bob is speechless and in awe. Karolyn is saying, "For God's sake Bob, he's a fat old wrestler!" But poor Bob is in a trance and all he can say is, "Gee, Dusty Rhodes." Actually, quite a few celebs and sports figures live close to them and they see many of them all the time, but Dusty was too much for poor Bob.
