Goodbye, Mike Awesome...

Greetings readers. I hope everyone reading this is great…but what are the odds of that? Hmm.

I've said this many times and I'll likely say it many more. The longer you live the more friends and acquaintances you'll see pass on. This week we say goodbye to Mike Awesome. I spent time back in the old ECW with Mike and in WWE in 2001 we shared a car together, often with Shawn Stasiak. I definitely considered him a friend and miss him already.

I don't have much time so let me drop a few notes and get out of here.

Did you go see Ghost Rider yet? I enjoyed it and don't mind the changes they made to adapt the story to the screen. Of course, I would have done a few things differently, but that's almost always the case. They have put so many new Ghost Rider collectibles out I'm running out of room in my Ghost Rider room!

Heroes is back on and still probably my favorite show to watch when I see what Tivo's got in store for me when I get home.

I've been seeing a lot of footage on the news lately about kids beating other kids up. They're jumping them, outnumbering them and beating the crap out of them. This is stupid for so many reasons. In real life, if you hit someone in the face, you might cave it in. You think that person deserves to have wire mesh holding their face together for the rest of their life because you're a stupid kid that doesn't consider consequences? If watching wrestling, or action movies, or whatever makes you want to test yourself, go ahead. Do it in a controlled environment with people who actually want to compete as well. That's what makes you tough- not surprising victims who you know you can take.

Out of time so I'll be back with an update in a few days. Peace. RVD
