North Carolina Loves The Nature Boy

Ric "The Nature Boy" Flair is one of the most famous professional wrestlers of all time.....but really only in the world of professional wrestling fans. He never had the type of mainstream recognition that someone like Hulk Hogan achieved. That being said, Ric Flair seems to be a fairly high profile celebrity in his home state of North Carolina. In 2000, I was in Charlotte for an Ozzfest and remember seeing a billboard at the venue advertising a business (a bank I believe) that prominently featured Flair. Now, it appears that he has his own scratch off lottery tickets for the North Carolina Education Lottery. The commercial is hilarious (more so if you are familiar with Flair and his trademark strut and his infamous "WOOOOOO!"). The North Carolina Education Lottery donates 100% of the net proceeds to state education expenses, so he is also supporting a good cause.
