  • Quick reaction from the responses from Heath: First off, what an awesome guy to take time to answer some of his fans!! Someone really needs to show him a good taco shop in town, not sure why Taco Bell is at the top of his list! I LOVE that when the first person asked about Brian Wilson, he responded with something about the Beach Boys and didn’t think twice about the San Francisco closer. Last thought, someone needs to make a Bell-y Flop shirt for our WWE superstar Heath Bell!!
