Every day is a good day in my day job, but there are some days which are especially interesting.
Saturday night, while covering a minor league baseball game in Connecticut for the newspaper Brad and I work for, I got the chance to meet Sgt. Slaughter, who was at the New Britain Rock Cats game as part of the team’s ceremonies for Military Appreciation Night.
We did an interview about his days as a real life marine and his love of the military (as well as his impressive knowledge of the New York Jets, and no, he doesn’t like the Revis trade), but I couldn’t resist slipping in a couple of old-school wrestling questions.
I meant them to be quick questions with one-line answers, but it turns out Slaughter, whose real name is Robert Remus, was way too insightful for that.
