Still Cool. Still Cocky. Still Bad.

Last summer Rev. Shaw ran into the greatest Intercontinental Champion of all-time, the Honky Tonk Man, knockin' 'em back and posing with his strap for fans at an airport bar. We wrote:
Apparently Honky makes over a G to just show up and sign autographs at county and state fairs, and, additionally, makes commission on what he sells. He then, mutton chops, jet black hair and all, basks in the attention he receives in airport bars, going so far as to pose with a championship strap.
Turns out, he hangs out at MLB spring training facilities and is pals with an NL front office man.

Brewer's beat writer Anthony Witrado blogs at one of our daily MLB reading stops, the Milwaukee Sentinal Journal's Brewer's Blog. He wrote this afternoon, "Today might have been the best day of camp for Tom and I, as Brewers director of media relations Mike Vassallo brought in his long-time friend and former WWF Intercontinental champion ... HONKY TONK MAN!"

As Witrado goes on to tell of what a joy Honky was, I can't help admit I am a bit jealous.
