My friend Scott bought a bar a few months ago in Fishers. Friday they had a wresting event to benefit the state fair accident victims. Some of the wrestlers were WWE stars like Billy Gunn, Eugene, Kevin Thorn, and Ariel. I was able to get behind the barricade and take photos.

oh well...

the search is over unless you live in buffalo. the excitement was fun while it lasted...

back to the spot

played tour guide for friends from louisville yesterday. it's been a while since i did that.

ballard and cole
brooks shuping. ollie to wave ride.
*the first time i met matt ballard was years ago in cincnnatti. i was shooting photos with bobby rodriguez AKA bob gnar of Natural Koncept fame and ballard was with him to film. bobby was trying to inward-heel the big 4 stack on campus. cops showed up a few minutes into it. while they were checking our IDs bobby took off running, leaving matt and i with the cops. we had no idea why he ran, but it's never cool to leave your homies in a situation like that. they never caught bobby and finally let us go after a long stressful 45 minutes. reguardless, ballard keeps it real on the midwest filming front. check out his vimeo page. matt ballard
