Wizard World weekend part 1

What an awesome weekend! It was a great show. I'll post again when I gather some photos from a few people. As usual, I took my camera and I took exactly zero pictures. Thanks goes out to my buddy Scott and his wife Melissa who let Sarah and I crash at their place. Thanks guys, you rock!

Some notable quotes from the weekend, in no particular order:

Nathan (my brother): "I dig the beard bro. Very viking warrior."
Dylan (my other brother): "That's like saying you don't know who Earl Campbell is."
Scott (an old roommate of mine): "Naw... I'm not going to the convention. I don't trust myself in a room with that many expensive Thor comics."
Jessica (Dylan's girlfriend/ native Texan... supposedly): "Who's Nolan Ryan?" *insert Dylan's above response here* "Who's Earl Campbell?"
Melissa (Scott's wife): "The sugar is in the small container." (I actually heard this, promptly ignored it, then took "sugar" from the big container that makes for some shitty coffee when it turns out that it is, in fact, salt.)
Me: "How is that possible?! This little 4-year-old girl knows who Nolan Ryan is!" *points to a little 4-year-old girl*
Dylan (Lord of the Feeps) Edwards: "Have you been bothered yet by the weird guy who is going around trying to get artists to draw him having sex with different super-heroes?"
Sarah (my table mate): "THEY HAVE SONIC HERE?? AWWW SHIIIIIIT!!"
Beer dude at the Stars game: "Don't know who Nolan Ryan is?? Aw man, that's fucked up."

I will need to get a pic of you with that beard, especially if it's very Viking warrior...
