The 56th Annual Senior Bowl returns to Mobile this weekend.
I'm gearing up for another big Mardi Gras parade this evening. The weather is looking great, and I think I hear Jack Daniels knocking at my door again.
Since I announced that our 14th Annual Gulf Coast Wrestler's Reunion is extending invitations to more of today's young ring stars, I have been bogged down with questions. I visited a local indy show on Tuesday evening, and passed out several membership applications. Almost all of the guys/gals thought that they were not welcome, and that it is exclusively for old-timers like me. That's the misconception that we are trying to change this year. I am going to do my best to attend another indy event in the Florida panhandle Saturday evening, and continue to spread the word.
What I need to stress is that we are inviting today's ring talents, who are out there busting their butts reaching for the stars. There are so many running around calling themselves "wrestlers," just because they were in a ring in somebody's backyard, "wrestled" for free in some country bar, or were trained by The Rock's cousin's wife's next door neighbor. Our Reunion IS NOT a fan festival. It is open ONLY to those active or retired from our business. I feel that I have my finger on the pulse of today's young stars, and that's why I have been named as the Board Member to oversee new memberships. Unfortunately, fans, internet writers, or "wrestling historians," are not welcome at our gathering.
Have a great day!
