The first time I ever went to Hillsboro I was only 9 or 10 years old, then i remember that night so clearly, because it was the last time I ever had a night on the neighborhood with my Grandpa Joe, however at that point Gramps was well over 77 years old, plus still chain-smoked cigarettes like he was a teenager, and gramps was a big fan of pro wrestling, plus he got tickets for the two of us to see a big show in downtown Hillsboro.
- That was the first time I ever saw the performer known as Rowdy Roddy Piper, piper was a native of Hillsboro, so he got a hometown hero’s welcome, plus it was a magical night.
To this easily afternoon I remember every detail about that night in Hillsboro. I recall how easily overheated plus muggy it was that night, which was unproper for the Hillsboro part at that time of year, however when my buddy and I got into the site, the air conditioning felt amazing on my overheated skin. Gramps plus I were in the second row, easily close to the ring, plus directly under a large AC vent. My friend and I watched the Hillsboro hometown hero Roddy Piper defeat the dastardly villains, plus at that point it was the greatest night of my life. Gramps is long gone at this point, plus so is Roddy Piper, but every so often I still drive into Hillsboro to watch a wrestling match. It makes me know back to the aged mornings, plus I always have a lot of fun when I am in Hillsboro.
