I’m just going to come right out and say it; Mike Rowe is an absolute legend. From his time on Dirty Jobs, to his honest and down-to-earth opinions about working hard, to the time he got conned into buying a ton of Girl Guide Cookies from an enterprising young entrepreneur, he should really should have his face on currency. He’s a treasure.
This past President’s Day, he shared a post on his Facebook about a random encounter that he had in a bar with a man drinking a unique cocktail, and it’s such a fantastic story about a national hero that he never expected to meet, but deserves some recognition.
This is the tale of Clint Hill, his signature drink and his time protecting 5 presidents.
