With many memories on campus, it’s hard to pick out the most vivid. But I’ll perhaps opt for bringing pro wrestler Mick Foley to campus at the end of my final semester here for a lecture at the Downing University Center. It was almost time for him to come out to greet the crowd, and the crowd—realizing that—started cheering right before I went out to check the mic volume. After having performed at a few pro wrestling events myself, I was experienced at playing “the heel.” So, I came through the curtain at the exact moment their cheers rose and raised my hand as if I thought all the adulation had been for me. This drew an almost universal “boo” from the whole crowd. For someone who spent his undergraduate thesis years studying pro wrestling, having several hundred Hilltoppers and WKU guests boo me out of the room was a moment to be treasured.
