I met a few at the NY Pro: dennis wolf, paco batista, melvin anthony, evan centopani, branch warren, dennis james, desmond miller, silvio samuel. Also met Lee Priest a few times. I'd say the three nicest out of all of them were lee priest, kai greene dennis wolf. Branch Warren was sort of standoffish.

Today Met

Bob Chick....Super Guy, I introduced myself as Littleguns, he laughed and said he knew who I was and said thanks for the positive posts. He gets a bad wrap from all the idiots on here. He truly loves his job, the fans and prob spent 20 mins chatting with me...

Kai - don't care what he does in his personal life, but very humble person, loves what he does and after speaking with him he may be my new fave BBer

Past:

Dillet - super nice guy. He was going in for Shoulder surgery back in 95 and has shrunk down alot and was in awe of my buddy who was doing the Nationals...weighing 280 lbs..

Achim ALbrecht - another really nice guy

Demayo - hard to read, if he was upset at someone or just pissed off

Matarazzo - met at a gym opening in NY....first time I ever saw a real huge BB'er...super nice

i met dorian once.

He bumped into me in a mcdonalds, he knocked my chips out of my hand.

i turned around not too pleased, and told him he better make full recompense or prepare for the consequences.

he apologised and bought me a cheeseburger happy meal and large chips to make up for it.

he then wiped away a piece of lint on my jacket and apologised again a few times before leaving quickly.

seemed a nice guy, but was clearly depleted.

if so, who and how was it ! tell us about it  Cool
Met:
-Lee Haney - Really down to earth
-Kevin Levrone - Seemed aloof...could have been having a bad day
-Lou Ferrigno - Really nice guy.  He takes a lot of hits here, but I liked him.
-Lee Labrada - Ultimate professional and seemed like a really good guy
-Linda Murray - Sweet...better looking in person

Competed with these guys before they became pros:
-Shawn Ray - Cool at first, but whined too much when he didn't win.
-Shane Dimora - Only shook his hand after he crushed us in the LW class.
-Juan Marquez, Vince Taylor, Eddie Robinson and a few others from the 1988 NPC Nationals.  
-Stan McCrary - Didn't interact with him...He won the heavy weight and overall.
-Daron Lytle - Not a well-known guy....Really cool
-James Hellwig (WWE Ultimate Warrior) - He never became a pro, but....  He won the '84 Mr. Georgia.

I met some big meathead italain roided older dude giving out t shirts outside fo gold venice in like 09.

Arrogant wanker.

I was taller but he was bigger and he kinda threw the t shirt at me all uncool n trying to be badass.

I guess I made him feel bad soemhow.

He was never like a winner one of those guys had a cover or 2 and thought he was a promotions genius.

Looked liek a knowitall.

I met a few in my day.
Frank Zane- Had a brief conversation with him.

Danny Padilla- Full of smiles like he was really having a good time

Mike Katz-Biggest bodybuilder I have seen. He was almost a scary sight back in the day. People seemed afraid to approach him.

Dennis Tinnereno. (spelling) I was at a contest and a drunk relative of his kept shouting out things at the show. He seemed really embarrassed and pissed off when he was walking down a street after the contest.

Ed Corny-Got mad when my friend asked him if he uses steroids.

Robby Robinson- Looked small to me in his track sweat suit. When he took it off for the show he looked amazing.
