I haven't been working on the blog as of late. It's kind of been bad for be the past few days since I last posted. I wanted to put something down, but I just didn't want to make you sit there and go, "Awww, poor guy. why doesn't he just give up?" Believe me, the thought has crossed my mind. I've had hospital visits, a cranky Greek landlady who wants to know where's her money, a third job that hasn't paid me anything, Medicare that want money now before I CAN GET MEDICARE, a bad dating life, and a partridge in a pear tree. Yep...life's been good to me, so far.
I did have a Really Cool Thing happen at Wet Willie's tonight, however. If you follow along the adventures of World Wrestling Entertainment
, you may have heard of Rob Van Dam
, or as he is known, "The Whole F'n Show
". He's a fantastic athlete and a great entertainer. His moves are some of the best in the business, as was shown here in Savannah as he wrestled in a steel cage match again the evil Kane.
Before I go on, let me just say that I LOVE
Pro Wrestling. I even did an indy stint myself for a while. It hurt like hell for the most part, but the rest was sheer fun. And, yes...I know it's scripted. Many folks have their soap operas. I just look at this as a soap however where they slap themselves silly.
Anyway, Rob come thru the door with an entourage. I was talking to local TV newsman Mike Cilia
(frickin' name dropper) noticed Van Dam walk in. Any word that were coming out of my mouth were gibberish as I saw R.V.D. Now, we've had O.J. and Jayson Williams come to Wet Willie's, but I think this time a violent sports celebrity who hasn't murdered anyone, but does beat up on guys come thru the door.
I got to talk to Rob about his time here, as he started out here before going up the ranks. We also talked about his comic book store, RVD'S 5 Star Comics
, which just opened in California and is doing great business. As a fellow C.B.G (Comic Book Guy), we have to support each other the best way we can. He's a really smooth guy and I wish him the best of luck on the store, as well as in the ring.
As for me, it made me feel better after having a bad few days and got me back to writing again. I hope to get back to a regular schedule of posting. So, if you have to thank anyone thank for this, send Rob Van Dam
