All of my dreams coming true: I experienced The Rock at Comic-Con

"I'm waving at him like he's gonna see me and just walk over."

Dreams do come true. Casey Newton is experiencing his first-ever San Diego Comic-Con. Here's what happened to Casey, in his own words, the moment Dwayne Johnson (aka The Rock) takes the stage to promote Hercules and talk about his "fanny pack" photo popularized this week on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon.

Update: Theo B. — the Comic-Con attendee who shouted "fanny pack" in the first place — emailed us with footage of the moment in question (courtesy of Ryan H.). And, we can assure you, he doesn't actually look like our sketched interpretation. Enjoy!
