Hey Look, The Sportatorium Does Cover Pro Rasslin'!

Snowing like a mother -- yes, again -- as I leave the warm confines of Collin County for Dallas.

Tried to be in a grumpy mood this morning, but this video made me giggle.

For those of you who are clamoring for Michael Young trade news, only thing new is that the Colorado Rockies have lost interest. For those of you saying Sportatorium should be more about pro wrestling, bon appetit.

And for those of you who will watch and claim that Richie Whitt has taken up a third job ... touche.

Wrestling was good when it didnt involve all the sex heavy story lines. By the time my son is old enough to watch, he will be too old to think it might be real. Whats the fun in that?

@Romo's: Lol. No. But in the '80s I did work with masked rasslin' writer "Betty Ann Stout" at the FWST.

Congrats on a good show today! Glad the Hammers back too. I'll admit I turn to the Ticket every now and then, but it's not long till Corby's empty segments change me back.

No, no, no, Richie. I accused you of doing midget porn, not midget wrestling.

That's the best laugh I've had all week. Even funnier in slo motion.

That's the Most Illegal Thing I've Seen in the History of Wrestling!

Credit where credit is due--nice video. Around the Horn had a wrestling clip last week too with a very large dude doing a face slide. Pro wrestling can be mindlessly entertaining when you accept it for what it is--scripted male soap opera.

While we're dealing with the new RW, serious question..didn't you use to write a wrasslin article weekly in the DMN? I'd swear it was you (late 80's maybe early 90's)
