    Met J.O. today



    He was a Midway Liquors near Joppatowne.

    The largest human being next to Andre the Giant I think I've ever stood next to. Incredibly nice guy as well!

    Cool stuff!

    When did you get to stand next to Andre the Giant? How old were you?

    Back in 1980. No photo of that unfortunately. It was at the Civic Center. I was 12.

    Nice, I got to high-five Hulk Hogan when I was 5 at the Civic Center (Baltimore Arena). 1986

    I was "around" him years ago at an event. I love that Guy. I love him when he is on the radio too. Midway Liqours is a scant 10 minutes from my house. Was he there buying hootch or for an appearance? What did he buy? Natie Boh?! Great picture

    LOL

    I stopped in on Wednesday night and they had signs promoting that he'd be there today from 11 to noon. I did make a beer run while I was there today.

    Haha nice. I thought it was a casual run in but you were always prepared.

    I've stood next to Flacco. He obviously isn't as wide as JO (or Andre the Giant), but he is truly 6'6", maybe even a little taller. When you are only 5'9" like me, that is a big man to stand next to.

    I ran into JO (literally) exiting the Superdome after the game. Huge. Big teddy bear type. In your picture he appears to have lost some weight in the middle.

    Stood close enough to Flacco in August during camp to see how big he is. Not just tall. Dude must go 245 and there is no fat. No wonder he can take those hits.

    I flew not town with JO on Wednesday might coming back from a business trip in Vegas. Could not believe he was flying Southwest and fit into on of their seats! Super nice guy and when I asked if he could come out of retirement to help our Oline he laughed and said hell no! Lol

    Jim Palmer try to come back with the Orioles after being elected into the baseball Hall of Fame. It didn't work out too well, but I think the primary reason for that is that his fastball didn't even go 80 mph. Ogden is still a big guy, and he doesn't look like he's gotten fat, so, if his toe has healed, he could probably help. We can still dream.
