Page of Fame Class 2015 - Randy "Macho Man" Savage


Growing up there were two guys who immediately attracted my eyeballs when it came to pro wrestling, Bret "The Hitman" Hart and Randy "Macho Man" Savage. Savage was my first guy dating back to my first years as a pro wrestling fan. The guy had it all, the crazy look, the flashy outfits, the incredible promos that hooked you, and of course, the athleticism inside of the ring. 

To this day, Savage is still, at least in my eyes, one of the greatest all-around wrestlers to EVER grace a ring. I know we all have our opinions, but again, to me, Savage was special. He was the definition of a larger-than-life character.

In fact, I am such a big fan of Savage that I uttered the words, "ooooooh yeah" with a finger twirl at my wedding. After all, the wedding of Savage to Miss Elizabeth at Summerslam '92 was by far the coolest thing ever! And partly, because there is something slightly wrong with me in having to incorporate pro wrestling into a life changing moment like marriage. Such is life. I'm nuts.

Now if I recited some of those infamous Macho Man promo quotes into my vows, I would have to agree I may need mental help:

"We're in space! And Space is the place!"

"The madness is runnin' wild!"

"Oooooh yeeeah! I want everybody to freak out! Freak out! The Macho Man is right here, and I'm gonna take it to the limit! Yeah!"

"Best there is... past, present and future! Ohhhhh yeahhhh!"

""I'm too hot to handle and too cold to hold!"

And my all-time favorite...

"The tower of power, too sweet to be sour, ohhhh yeahh!"

Nonetheless, Savage is awesome, and now is the 6th induction into the DP Page of Fame. Ohhh yeeeeah, dig it!

Sunday Sundown Rundown - 4/23/17

3 Up
1. Serena Williams - Just when Serena Williams' legend couldn't grown any larger, we find out this week that not only is she pregnant, but yes, she won her last major while pregnant. I've said it for awhile, but Williams is one of the best athletes of all-time. Certainly one of mine. 
2. Russell Westbrook - Yes, he's down 3-1 to James Harden and the Rockets, but the way he's putting up triple-doubles is unreal. It's basically video-game like at this point. 
3. Fox News - A slight minor hit for Fox in finally - FINALLY - doing away with Bill O'Reilly and cleaning up the good old boy club they allowed to dominate the station, while also sexually harassing many. White old men...the privilege and power it produces never ceases to amaze me. 
3 Down
1. North Korea Threat - So now North Korea is threatening to sink a U.S. Aircraft carrier. Anything North Korea typically makes me shake my head, and in the same though, concerned. It's amazing how weird the w…

Dope Sports Threads - World Baseball Classic 2017

As you probably know already, I LOVE the World Baseball Classic. I love everything about it. The tournament. The culture. And especially, the early access to competitive baseball. And of course, with it comes an opportunity for some dope threads we don't typically see - cleats, uniforms, catcher's gear, accesories, etc...
Unlike Major League Baseball and some of the rules from it's clubs, the WBC provided an opportunity for some fun new stuff, including some customization and personalization from players. With that said, here are a few of the things that I really liked from the 2017 World Baseball Classic: 
Uniforms were interesting. Most of the uniforms in this tournament had a template-like feel, especially the road jerseys which featured a dark gray and colored sleeves. Part of this change was Team Japan, whose uniforms were unlike everyone else in the tournament, and easily in my opinion, the best. 

The wide stripes are so dope and the font compliments it well. Some c…

2017 Bucket List #1 - Visit Marlins Park

My 14th MLB stadium (not counting the ones that are no longer - RIP old Yankee Stadium) was in fact Marlins Park in wonderful Miami, Florida. I had the opportunity to check off two bucket list items in my visit by seeing the park, AND being present for the World Baseball Classic opening round. Of course, I'll have more on the latter in another post.
Regardless, back to Marlins Park. My first and major takeaway is in fact tied to the bureaucracy that has surrounded the building since it's inception. The park is located in a peculiar location in Miami. Very apparent of the cheap land acquired, and the socioeconomics of the neighborhood that surrounds it. Though, much like the two games I went to, the ballpark has given many of the neighboring folks revenue-generating opportunities, renting out their front yards for parking and other tailgating opportunities. Makes for a unique concept.
