Gator Boys Up Close – Almost Wordless Wednesday W/ LINKY


 WW camera button


My son and I love the Gator Boys on t.v., it’s one of our favorite shows. Last week where invited to go to the local fair with some friends. I picked up a show program when we got there but I never really looked at it. As we where getting ready to leave we heard someone talking about the Gator Boys alligator wrestling show taking place in the fair. My son and I looked at each other and with the other 4 kids in tow raced over to see the show. It was an unexpected blessing to get to see them up close and in person!

 At the end of the show we got to meet Jimmy Riffle and some of the other Gator Boys after the show. My kids got their autographs and a picture taken with them. What a great down to earth bunch of men! If you do not watch their show, I would so encourage you to do so! They are out there helping animals not harming them!

  3. WOW! It is wonderful that you were able to experience this Up Close and Personal! I’m certain your boys will remember this for a very long time!

  4. That’s so awesome that you got their autographes!

  5. How cool! I know my boys would love to meet them in person! We have a Gator Farm close to us that we visit. They let the boys hold small little baby alligators, and some a little bigger, that had their mouths taped shut. They are amazing animals.

    Looks exciting though!

  65. There’s a local reptile zoo that tours around to schools and stuff — they will even do birthday parties.
    I went to one of those….. imagine my surprise to see my 5 year old daughter cuddling up to an alligator, touching a python, and letting a tarantula crawl on her arm!!
    girls braver than me!

  66. My son would absolutely love that! I am not sure my four year old would do well, she is already afraid of alligators. (She is a typical four year old and is afraid of anything with big teeth πŸ™‚

  67. My brother would definitely love this Gator boys.. πŸ™‚

  68. That’s the coolest thing to have a photo with them and have autograph. I saw the show a couple of times. It was nice!
