I got to meet one of my favorite celebrities the other night... Denis Leary

I’ve been a big fan of his since watching The Ref for the first time and have since loved his standup comedy, movies, his TV show The Job and his current TV show Rescue Me. So when I heard that he was going to be here in Chicago I had to go meet him. He was signing copies of his new book Why We Suck… haha… so one of my friends and I went and he drove and took his girlfriend and two year old twin boys with as well and Denis took the time to sign our books and even signed my Rescue Me book and he shook our hands and took pics with us. It was an awesome experience. I also got to meet Bret “Hitman” Hart (the pro wrestler) at a book signing a couple months ago so it’s been really awesome meeting some of my favorite celebrities the past couple of months.

Now I’ve met…

Jimmy Hart (wrestling manager)

Hulk Hogan

"Rowdy" Roddy Piper

Bret “Hitman” Hart

Denis Leary

I’ve been a fan since the “no cure for cancer” album

I like this part:


Capital N, small Y, big fuckin’ Q

NyQuill we love you…you big fuckin Q!

Denis Leary, you say? Damn. I just luv that mick s.o.b.!

I wrestled for Jimmy Hart once in Tampa. Congrats on meeting Dennis. It’s great to hear that he was nice.

My friend uploaded the pictures earlier today so here’s me an Denis… btw, my hair is messed up because I had my hood on outside since it was freezing outside.

Cool! And I wouldn’t say your hair looks messed up.

Yeah, I’ve heard that he comes off as a pretty cool dude as long as you don’t bring up Autism, the common sense behind the end of Tower 7 and his career before Rescue Me.

Rescue Me must save an ass load of money on wardrobe. Doesn’t he wear almost the exact same shit from time to time on Rescue Me?
