Wrestling: Glad you didn't take it personally
I'm a little confused, but maybe it's because I've been watching the Orioles all year. Most of you wrestling fans pay like $59 bucks to watch pay-per-views where the whole point is for the heroes and villains to be as over-the-top as they can possibly get, then you get all thin-skinned when somebody hits you with a verbal folding chair?
I thought I was doing Maryland Championship Wrestling a favor by advertising the July 31 show in Dundalk (Town motto: "When did we get a building big enough to host a wrestling event?"), but I apparently ruffled some feathers -- or at least some people with tattoos who look like they have feathers.
Certainly, there was no disrespect intended toward wrestling fans -- I thought the neck tattoo thing was a compliment -- and I hold my colleague Kevin Eck in the highest regard, or at least the highest regard I can muster for a guy with highlights and a secret crush on Golddust (above).
I guess what I'm trying to say here is, I'm really sorry if I offended anyone who thought I didn't show pro wrestling the proper respect. I hope we're still friends.
