MCW: Schmuck down

If you didn't make it to the Maryland Championship Wrestling Shamrock Cup event last night at The New Green Room in Dundalk, I guess I'll have to give you the sad details. Though I laid some impressive abuse on Kevin Eck and Ronnie Zukko during the six-man tag team match that kicked off the second half of the show -- and was just about to put the ultimated blog smackdown on Kevin with my laptop -- I was temporarily distracted by Ronnie's henchwoman (a fetching young thing named Kim) and blindsided by Eck, who performed a crude version of an RKO that left me with a wrenched neck and a perfect excuse to take several weeks of sick leave.

beatupschmuck.jpgI want to thank my boys Fed Up for joining me in my attempt to shut down Ring Posts, and I also want to apologize for letting them down. They put on a great show, only to have me (left) let a pretty young wench divert my attention at the last minute and blow the match. I will not apologize for being a heterosexual, however, expecially after seeing Kevin in a singlet and Cole Calloway in pink spandex.

There wasn't blood, but there will be video. Baltimore Sun videographer Kevin Richardson recorded the whole thing for posterity, so you'll soon be able to witness the treachery that led to this clearly unfair outcome.

Still, I want to thank the wrestling fans in Dundalk for making me feel welcome, in spite of some untoward remarks about the area that I now regret. I was only there for a few hours, so I didn't get to see everything, but you have a very nice Wal-Mart.

you'll get 'em next time, pete. that kevin eck is nuthin' but a pencil neck geek.

Excellent coverage Pete. You are my sole source for all wrestling news and insights. Considering the awful season you've had to cover with the O's I can understand your need for some professional diversity.

Remember, you can't be the man unless you beat the man.

When I first heard about this (on your radio show), I thought, "What the h..l is he thinking?" You got suckered!.

Please use your common sense going forward. I enjoy your columns and your comments on the radio.

How did it feel to be performing at an event dedicated to the memory of a man who beat the hell out of his wife on multiple occasions?

I understand your desire to "perform" but it could have been done at a different time and place.

Are the Orioles that bad that you've resorted to doing this? Schmuck, say it ain't so?

THAT's funny. And disturbing. Mainly disturbing, with a side of humorous.

"you have a very nice Wal-Mart"


Your credibility in the clubhouse should take a hit for this.

I can't believe the Sun covers wrestling in the sports page. The high school wrestlers should revolt.

Trust me Scmuckers, you didn't let anyone down. Only embarrassed yourself and Eck did the same. And the so called RKO was terribly done. For the love of god please both of you don't ever wrestle again.
In the words of the Miz "really" stick to what you best and that is continue to cry in your Orioles blogs.

About Peter Schmuck
Peter Schmuck wants you to know that, contrary to popular belief, he is more than just a bon vivant, raconteur and collector of blousy flowered shirts. He is a semi-respected journalist who has covered virtually every sport -- except luge, of course – and tackled issues that transcend the mere games people play. If that isn’t enough to qualify him to provide witty, wide-ranging commentary on the sports world ... and the rest of the world, for that matter ... he is an avid reader of history, biography and the classics, as well as a charming blowhard who pops off on both sports and politics on WBAL Radio. That means you can expect a little of everything in The Schmuck Stops Here, but the major focus will be keeping you up to the minute on Baltimore’s major sports teams and themes, whether it’s throwing up the Orioles lineup the minute it’s announced or updating you on the latest sprained ankle in Owings Mills. Oh, and by the way, that’s Mr. Schmuck to you.
