GRCooper: He's also a genuinely sweet and humble guy (since online gaming is fairly anonymous, we didn't know he'd be at the con - if someone hadn't recognized him, I don't doubt he'd never have mentioned who he was)


Until he retired a year or two ago, my Dad was once King of the Train Nerds. Utilizing his knowledge of trains, chemistry, and attention to detail, he make a business out of producing model train car kits (you'd better believe they were H.O. scale, baby). Well, it was another railroad convention, and the folks had dragged us kids along again. I know it may be hard to realize, but the whole affair was a special circle of Hell reserved for active, young children. 95% of the people there were middle-aged men wearing engineer caps and/or overalls, usually adorned with various buttons with terrible train-related puns. Sometimes, the convention was a little more diverse, including booths for remote control cars, planes, and boats, but this was almost never the case. Thankfully, my loving mother would often take my sister and I away for awhile, checking out the sights of whatever city we happened to be in. It was on one of these outings, that we missed our chance to have a brush with greatness....

At the time, the show Family Ties was the biggest thing on TV. My Dad was sitting at our booth, eagerly awaiting the next potential customer. A gentleman walks up, talks with my Dad for a bit, checks out his train kits, and moves on. It was only then that Dad recognized his visitor. It was none other than MICHAEL. FARKING. GROSS. Impossible, you say? A glorious golden god like Steven Keaton would step down from on high and bless a humble model train convention with his presence? I understand, my friend. I've never known my father to be nothing but brutally honest, but this was too far outside the realm of possibility. Dad revealed that he had unsheathed his mighty Olympus camera and surreptitiously taken a picture of Gross at the next booth. My sister went on a quest to find him ourselves, but like a rainbow or shooting star, he was gone as if he was never there. Once home, Dad took the roll of film down to his dark room, emerging several hours later with his proof. How long did we all sit at the table, gazing upon his greatness? Hours? Days? None of us really know. All I know is that, after that convention, the family business exploded with orders, and was finally on its way to becoming a big deal in the model train world. Coincidence? I think not!

On a side note, Gary Coleman was also a train nerd, but he was into those big, prefab Lionel trains, so fark him.

Mark McKinney is an online gamer from WAY back. Met him at a convention for one (Air Warrior), circa 1999.

Holy crap, he's funny. You know that guy at the local bar who tells great jokes and everyone says "man, that guy should be on SNL he's so funny."? No. He's Sylvia Plath compared to Mark.

Maybe next they'll do an article about how MSNBC personalities resemble SNL characters.
