>> JON'S WRESTLING JABBERBy Jon Beck, [jon@...]
What was I thinking? Skipping out on an opportunity to go to the
greatest sports entertainment spectacular of all time? A chance to
finally meet my Wrestling-Online colleagues after 2 years of exchanging
countless emails and Instant Messages? A chance to finally grasp the
phenominon that is Jason Clevett?
Sadly, there is this thing called a college education that is suddenly
taking over a large part of my life. Which, in case you were wondering,
explains my lengthy absense. Getting adjusted to this thing is a hard
thing to, well, get adjusted to. Going without wrestling for nearly a
month is also a hard thing to get adjusted to. So, Monday's RAW was the
first wrestling episode I have seen since, well, Kane tombstoned
Shane-O-Mac on the steel steps. I don't completely understand why I
chose to forgo my love of wrestling for such an insane amount of time,
but I think it might have something to do with the fact that once you
hit college, you realize some of your childlike behaviors, and you take
steps to correct them?
We all know, though, that certain behavior, though we know it to be
quite peculiar, never changes despite all our efforts. That said, I
opened up my hotmail mailbox for the first time in a couple weeks, and
was quite apalled to see a lack of intelligent columns on this sheet.
decided to end my sabbatical from wrestling, get involved again and to
add back to Wrestling-Online the flair (no pun intended) that it has
been missing since I left. Remarkably, it still manages to remain the
most widely-read wrestling newsletter out there, which gives me yet
another reason to continue my hobby?
I also happened to figure out that I am on Spring Break the weekend of
Wrestlemania. It is this thought that troubles me the greatest -- I
should have bitten the bullet and ordered a ticket. Which reminds me, if
any of you have a ticket that you would be willing to part with, let me
know by email... you can use the address above. Maybe I will go and see
my cohorts in crime after all.
In the mean time, I think I will amuse myself by hacking up the snot
that is remaining in my lungs from a nasty cough I have had. And you,
dear reader, should do something more productive than read the random
ramblings of Jon, as I realize that this issue has been noting but a
steady stream of incoherent mumbo-jumbo. The thought occurs to me,
though, that some of you may enjoy that, so I think I will leave it as
Until next time, it has been your pleasure. Go read.
