I've been so busy getting machines ready for GSPF, that I kinda spaced on updating you Lou "fans" out there. Until I started getting all these pm's.
Well, it ain't happened yet.

After a phone call in the middle of class, a voice mail and 12 texts, we agreed on Saturday at 1. Then he texts me on Friday and says, how about earlier, like 10 am? I say ok; better for me anyway. Then later than night, I get another text telling me he has Sheriff's Posse duty, and can we move it back to Saturday at 1? I say ok.

Then on Saturday at like 7:30am, he texts me again saying he ended up having an early patrol and was finished already, can we go back to 10? I say how about 10:30? (just cuz) He says ok.

At 9:30 (it's a 20 minute drive to his house), I get another text saying he has a "family emergency" in Santa Monica, and we'll have to go for 2 weeks from now.

So.. yeah. See you in two weeks...maybe.

At this point you should just let him set it up himself . He clearly has no respect for you or the time you are donating .

What a troll.

#8 5 months ago

You have more patience than most I know- particularly when you’re providing your time and service free of charge. Hope he appreciates it.

#9 5 months ago

It doesn't sound like he even cares about pinball.... someone drops a free machine in your lap (not just any machine but a Hulk machine at that!) with someone else coming over for free to set it up and he treats you like you're his assistant. Wtf?

I really hope he hooks you up if you guys ever meet up.
Please get him to sign your stuff before you even touch his machine, his response in that would determine if I would set it up or turn right around and head home.

What a pain, that's why I never help Lou Ferrignou

#11 5 months ago

What if it really was a family emergency? I hope he's not as bad as the rumors. I'm sure you will let us know.

I have dealt with lots of “celebrities “ over the years and as crazy as it sounds I have learned to give them a low priority.
The bread and butter of Pinball is the true hobbyists. I would pick a passionate collector over a famous celebrity any day of the week.

#13 5 months ago

He may see the pinball as somewhat of a burden too - if he’s not an enthusiast he mgiht see it as kind of a hassle. You may be best served to just ask him - “I’m happy to hook this up for you, but do you want me to just drop it off? We can put it in storage or just make sure it turns on, I’ll take your picture next to it..”. He IS a legit sheriff’s deputy

#14 5 months ago

What ever happens if he starts to turn green just back away slowly!

#15 5 months ago

Yeah,so,Mark,bring that puppy up to me and I'll give it,and you, the credit you deserve! Looks like the Foxy Lady may not make the trip!!!!C U there!!!!

#16 5 months ago

On the bright side you’ll have the story. How many people get texts from The Hulk?

Best post in awhile!

#20 5 months ago

damn,what a loser it seems to me like he does not want you in his house.if he has all that time to keep texting you it very well tells you how much time he has on his hands

Oh, I could make it fun. Cat pics galore!

#22 5 months ago

I was in the shop all day Saturday anyway, working on machines for GSPF. It really wasn't any thang to me. It was just amusing to have so many back and forths. I saved the voicemail too; he sounds exactly like I remembered him.

If he jukes me around again in two weeks, I'll prolly tell him to take a hike.

I just saw Pumping Iron for the first time yesterday. Very good movie. Then I found out that Lou actually made a comeback in professional bodybuilding in the early 1990's. He looks absolutely massive in this Mr. Olympia 1993 video. Those calf muscles are something else.

#28 5 months ago

So far, Lou is a solid 0-2 on Pinside threads.

#29 5 months ago

Better just let him reschedule and don't make him angry. You won't like him when he's angry.

#30 5 months ago

How much would it kill if Lou got wind of this thread and cared enough do join in the fray?

A lot. It would kill a lot!

#31 5 months ago

You could always use him for some major advertising....... After all he's a giant Banner!

#32 5 months ago

TPF.

My WH2O across from his booth.

Win Hulk DVD in raffle. Lou wants money to sign. Meh. Walk away.

Watched Hulk growing up. Advertisers paid for show. My family probably bought advertised stuff. Call it even.

Hulk SMASH childhood world.

Man boy learns real world lesson.

bill bixby was actually more of a key player in the hulk. i mean lou ferrigno didnt even act, he just lurched around in green paint and wig.
he should consider himself lucky he can still milk cash outa this cow.

#34 5 months ago

Great story already, might get better. Any of us 50+ year olds that grew up lifting, looked up to Arnold, Lou and Franco.

#35 5 months ago

I'm guessing that Lou wants you to pay him $30 to set up his pinball machine. Hopefully he soon join grand opening tour circuit for grocery, carpeting and furniture stores....

These threads make me sad like that piano outro every episode.

#37 5 months ago

Gryszzz,

Please mess your hair up, put on some old ragged out pants, get your daughters to help paint your face and body with green paint, and post a pic of you growling and flexing like the Hulk when he is mad.
Yes, we will buy you drinks while out for the night, especially if you go out as The Hulk.

#38 5 months ago

Don't ever talk about messin my hair up Mike.
3 thumbs down.

#39 5 months ago

Screw it. You deserve better. I wouldn't contact him again. If he contacts you, I would just tell him that I was no longer interested.

Sorry but what's the background on this? I remember reading about how at TPF he was kind of a pain.....

#46 5 months ago

One more chance. If he cancels again or reschedules have him call someone else. Imo.

LOL @ that Virgil post. Dude shows up at a Washington Wild Things baseball game near here (independent scrub league baseball), and tries to pawn off photos from his wrestling days for like absurd money. If you tried to take a photo of him, he wanted to charge you for it. People were legit laughing at him. Pretty sad actually when you think about the guy's downfall.

#50 5 months ago

What a sad story. Whatever they were arguing about would have been so petty and over nothing, like their line is lined up wrong or something. They're going to cost the other one $20.
