Happy 60th Birthday GW!

You know him as GW even though I haven't had him do a feature here in a long while.  I know him as Dad and he turned 60 today. He shares a birthday with "The King" Elvis Presley.  That makes Elvis' birthday the second most important at best.

Bringing this back around to SAW I always say you have to "Blame Dad, Ric Flair and Ted Turner."  What does this mean?  It means that without Dad's fandom I wouldn't have my fandom. Ric of course was the champ and 6:05 Saturday night was a big deal in our household.

I even remember when Dad "smartened me up."  I was bummed that someone had smashed one of the Von Erich's cars they won.  I told my parents that I couldn't believe they had done that and Dad says from the front seat, "You know it's not real, right?"  Then I was bummed about that revelation for that night but as you can see it did nothing to dampen my fandom in the long run.

Anyhow, happy birthday Dad.
