Yes, O K, if there was a guy, then he was the one I was thinking of, though I didn't think even he was that tall. Poor guy died early, as I remember his circulatory system just couldn't keep up.
I used to work in Orlando, FL, and one day, doing day duty at a place known for it's night life, I was standing in the hall all alone, when up strolled Shaquille O'Neal, equally alone, wearing a derby. Seven foot two. It felt like the Attack of the Giant Stymies.
Maybe three years ago, I was standing in line at a restaurant in Largo, FL, and who should walk in behind me but Hulk Hogan. I was thrilled. He was unimpressed. ( I had known in advance that Hulk lived near there, so seeing him in a restaurant was not a big surprise, but I was thrilled, and so would you have been, you liar ). Hogan has always been announced as being 6-foot-8. I'm six-foot-four, and when we chatted, we were eyeball- to-eyeball exactly the same height. The point of this story is not to say how tall Hogan actually is, it's to brag that I once met Hulk Hogan.
