    Thousands crowd the Jackie Martling booth at Comic-Con in Philadelphia. I spend the afternoon there. Jackie had no one come up to him while I was watching. I just can figure out why he expected anyone to be interested. All the special guests were connected with sci fi TV shows, wrestling or movies. It was jammed with people waiting for Chris Hemsworth, William Shatner, Patrick Stewart. Jackie is sitting there with his CD's, joke books, he is probably saying to himself I could be up in Bayville having a clam bake if I didn't quit the Stern Show. Instead he is waiting for anyone to ask him for autograph or buy a CD for $15.

    Damn, that sucks. Why would he even be there? Like you said, no sci-fi or comic book connection -that I know of, anyway. :dontknow:

    I went two years ago to see Patrick Stewart, looks like they stuck Jackie down at the end where the black guy from the first season on Survivor was stuck, sitting all alone too. Poor Jackie.

    Just the look on Jackie's face tells you all you want to know. He has to be like Robert De Niro in Raging Bull after Jake Lamotta was arrested for pandering those two underage girls at his bar. The way Jackie must feel when he thinks about why he left the greatest job he ever had. Dumb, Dumb, Dumb, Why, Why, Why.

    That blurry guy was carrying around a light saber. I wanted to get closer to Jackie to take the picture but I didn't want to him say something like I charge for photo-ops or why don't I buy something.

    I went to the Cinema Wasteland Horror Convention back in '02 and Virgil was there aggressively signing shit for people that they didn't want or ask for. If somebody walked by, he'd stop them and ask them their name and then start signing shit for them and he'd hand it to them and say, "OK, that'll be twenty dollars."

    From what I saw, most people declined, but some actually agreed to pay out of sheer shock and bewilderment. A guy next to him selling indie bootlegs was getting pissed because he was scaring away customers.

    Yeah, O&A chronicle the dealings of Virgil pretty well. One of their guys even had a replica Million Dollar Belt that DiBiase signed and before it could be handed back Virgil had signed it as well even though he wasn't asked.

    Selfish fucking Howard, couldn't share 2 marbles with the Jokeman. :pissed:

    He's got all the marbles now, doesn't care the show was a million times better when Jackie was there.
