Babalu in Maui

I was in Maui last 1.5 weeks- just got back.

I was in the aquarium in Wailuku looking at the sharks when who do I see walk through than Babalu. He was with his wife, young daughter and baby daughter. I saw him- he was like 5 feet from me- like a star struck idiot I mouth "Sobral?" as he's looking at me- he shows this look like- "yeah- be quiet". I know I'm the only person there who likely recognizes him. Dude was on vacation- pushing a stroller so I'm not exactly going to snap pics of him... maybe if his last fight had turned out better he'd have been a little more eager to see a fan as he's trying to get away from everyone.

I was dumb struck- happened to mill around the gift shop while he was in there (on purpose)- actually was able to leave when he did- ran to the car determined to prove to my wife it was him. She says "Of all the people- it can't be." I drive past his red jeep Rubicon rental as he's loading in his kids- I roll down the window- "BABALU!" He looks at me- bewildered- gives a thumbs up and a little smile.

Not exactly an impressive meet and greet but he's always been a fav of mine. This was the only place i had to share.

BTW- any news on his next fight?
