Meet Blue Chip – Andy Michaels

Andy & Jill

Andy & his wife Jill

Name: Andy Michaels

Job Title: Marketing and Metrics

Favorite BC memory or experience: Going to the Kickoff tournament in Tulsa for the first time and seeing a sea of Blue Chip singlets and gear everywhere I looked!

Which BC singlet would you wear to wrestle in: I think my favorite is an oldie but a goodie – I really like the Mexico Calavera.

Favorite wrestler or team: Spenser Mango (@MangoBuck) because I have spent so much time looking at his picture for the catalog.  Plus knowing he’s over a foot shorter than me and could still kick my butt makes me a little afraid of him…

Who would you cast to play you in a movie: Tim Robbins from the Shawshank Redemption days – my wife always thought there was a resemblance there and he’s almost as tall as I am.

What would you say is your life’s theme song: It’s an album, not a song, but “What a Long Strange Trip It’s Been”

What movie could you watch over and over: Rounders.  “I have what’s known as the wheel. It’s got earthy tones, a smooth draw, and enough kick to win me the high and the low”

Jobs you have had in your life: Ranch hand, telemarketer, surgical orderly, business consultant, pizza oven bricklayer

Places you have lived: Kansas City, Chicago, Denver, Springfield, MO

Favorite foods: The chicken curry at LeMonde is right up there, I’m also a big fan of homemade pizza.

Favorite quote(s): “Feed a man a fish and he’ll eat for a day.  Feed a fish a man and he’ll eat for like two and a half months.” – Rainn Wilson
