Just got back from the Bret "The Hitman" Hart signing tonight at the Wilmington Blue Rocks minor league baseball game at Frawley Stadium in Wilmington, DE. This is generally a great place to get an autograph/photo op during their annual "Wrestling Night," and tonight was no different.
I overheard two employees saying they had not seen a line this long in a while - and that they had to change Bret's break time, as he was initially scheduled to take a break at 7:00 but instead would be signing until 7:45, and then again at 8:15, due to the long line. He also started signing before the game started, which I had not seen them do before.
We waited about an hour, but it was worth it. Bret was a little quiet, but nice (about how I'd expected him to be), and happy to sign any item (limit one per person, so I had my wife get my "Hart Foundation" Classic Superstars set signed). My three-year-old son has seen some Hitman matches and likes him, but got a little nervous when meeting the champ.
Great night, can't wait until "Wrestling Night" at Frawley Stadium next year!
