Here’s A Photo Of Sgt. Slaughter And Jimmy Hart At A Florida Panthers Game

Interesting. There really isn’t much to add here other than the man in the middle of pro wrestling royalty is George Richards from the Miami Herald. I wonder if Sgt. Slaughter gave that ink-stained wretch a taste of the old Camel Clutch. Or, at the very least, gave the guy a G.I. Joe action figure. How cool would that be?

Yet, I do have one question: does Jimmy “The Mouth of the South” Hart really carry around a megaphone wherever he goes or does he only bust it out for semi-staged public appearances? I’d like to think he uses it when he’s in the drive-thru at McDonald’s. You know, just to mess with them.

Oh, and here’s an interesting little trivia nugget I learned during a quick search of the interwebs: prior to his entry into the wacky world of professional wrestling, Jimmy Hart was the lead singer of ’60s band The Gentrys, who had a run of hits during their heyday, including the little diddy, “Keep On Dancing”. Crazy stuff.

But now I know, and knowing is half the battle.
