Remember that time you met James Marsters, he who played Spike on both Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Angel, and you had this really insightful, well thought out question that you knew would blow him away and prove that you weren’t just another mouth-breather like the rest of the chumps in line but instead what came out of your adult, married-to-a-beautiful-woman male mouth was “I love you”?

Today at 11 a.m. I’ll be on HuffPost Live with Hulk Hogan as I’ve been tasked with asking him a question or two as a fan. Being a student of history (particularly my own) the last thing I need is a repeat of The Marsters Incident on a highly trafficked web show that I’ve made sure all my friends, former co-workers and people I generally respect know I’ll be appearing on. Obviously I spent more than a few hours over the weekend carefully crafting the most insightful questions (and one jackass one) possible. Proper preparation and all that.
I’ve run the questions past friends who are smarter than me and gotten their validation.
I’ve practiced asking my carefully crafted questions to perfection.
I got a good(ish) night’s sleep to make sure I'm as charming as ever today.
I think I’m all set...
But the fact remains I’m still meeting one of my Top 5 Heroes From Childhood later this morning.
So I guess what I’m saying is I hope he says he loves me back.
Here's the link to the show. And no worries if you're reading this days, weeks, hell, even years after it was written. HuffPost Live keeps an archive so it's all good.
