Warner’s WrestleMania Weekend: A Retrospective on an Amazing Event

photo 2 500x425 Warners WrestleMania Weekend: A Retrospective on an Amazing Event

It’s tough to sum up my feelings around my first WrestleMania weekend after hearing of the Ultimate Warrior’s death late last night. He was one in a million, a superhero to millions of kids in the early 90s, but most importantly, after hearing him speak at the WWE Hall of Fame induction ceremony Saturday night, I can say that he was a good man who cared more about his wife and daughters than anything else. After hearing Scott “Razor Ramon” Hall and Jake “The Snake” Roberts discuss losing everything and hitting rock bottom before getting their lives straightened out, it was refreshing to hear Warrior speak about his ability to hold onto his wife, work through his problems and start what seemed to be a very happy family.

RIP Warrior. You will be missed. Read more

Well, this is a surprise. Here I thought that I would be writing a column the week after WrestleMania XXX glamorizing fellow Wise Guise writer and friend Warner Russell and I enjoying the festivities in New Orleans. We had a memorable few days: I got to meet up with John Cena, and Warner met Hall of Famer Mick Foley. We laughed, cried and nearly fell asleep during the Hall of Fame ceremony. And then we waited in an hour-long line to enter the Superdome for the big show Sunday afternoon. Read more

Sochi 2014: Weekend Top 10

Oshie Sochi 2014: Weekend Top 10

T.J. Oshie nets the game-winner.

1) Oshie in Sochi! If you try typing that sentence on your phone or computer, autocorrect will swiftly add an exclamation point. Even if you write it by hand, your pen will take over and force the exclamation point onto the page—similar to this familiar scene from Liar Liar.

But I digress…

T.J. Oshie, the 27-year-old forward on the US men’s hockey team, buried the game-winning goal on his sixth attempt in the 8th round of a sudden death shootout versus the Russians. In a span of 20 minutes, Oshie went from being an unknown to a national hero. He has picked up roughly 130,000 new twitter followers, and his name is second only to TJ Maxx when you type “TJ” into a Google search. Oshie has also handled the newfound spotlight with grace and humility, crediting his goalie and teammates for their efforts in the defeat of the Russians. I’m curious to see what happens when he returns home to St. Louis and the NHL. Regardless of the team’s final results, I believe he has earned an interview on the Tonight Show w/ Fallon, and of course a sit down with ESPN’s own Barry Melrose. Hopefully his NHL schedule will allow some time for his personal brand to flourish. Read more

10 Thoughts from Sochi: Week 1

sochi winter olympics 2014 10 Thoughts from Sochi: Week 1

I had a sour taste in my mouth in the weeks leading up to the Winter Olympics. I was bothered that all of my shows were taking long break– minus a certain reality show that comes on ABC on Mondays. I was annoyed by the cross-country skiing commercials. Who cares which kind of Greek yogurt these athletes eat?

Fast forward to the opening ceremony, and now I find myself wanting more detail about how many Greek yogurts the athletes are consuming and what time of day is best for it. Something happens internally when you see our group of Americans waving our flag in Russia while dressed in the tacky Christmas sweaters that Polo dressed them in. I suddenly become so fired up for the events that I complain that they only last a little over two weeks.

Today we are now officially a week into the games. Here are 10 thoughts from a casual fan who grew up in a state where “winter” happens for about a week total, but not in seven consecutive days. Read more
