Everyone knows who Chuck Norris is, but one Idaho teen got to meet the American Icon in person.

When Leann Mendoza learned that Chuck Norris was making an appearance in Logan, Utah, she knew it was an opportunity she couldn’t pass up. She went to pick up her son Jonny so he could meet his hero. The Idaho State Journal has the entire story here. It has a pretty awesome ending, too.

If that doesn’t warm your heart, then I don’t know what will. Chuck Norris sounds like a real nice, genuine guy. I bet he can still roundhouse kick with the best of them, too. On that note, I'm going to find my Chuck Norris Action Jeans and kick some stuff.
