blast from the past

Indeed it was.  After the Sabres’ disappointing 4-2 loss to the Senators this evening, I started up the evening routine.  One of those items is turning off the TV after I have set it to channel 2.  Imagine my surprise when I saw that it was Saturday Night’s Main Event all over again.  I thought that had been gone for 15 years, at least!  Professional wrestling on NBC.  Boy, what a thing to behold.  I don’t ever want to say that I was interested, but I just watched Shane McMahon (Vince’s kid) and Shawn Michaels go at it.  Ah, memories.

I seem to remember a certain apartment somewhere over near the Erie County Fairgrounds that used to see a bit of Pay-per-View wrestling action.  I dare say one or two of my fellow bloggers remember….yeah, that’s right, boys.

    Ahh, yes. Wrestling nights. I’m not sure if I lost more brain cells from the beer or from being exposed to those ridiculous story lines Vince pumped out. Either way, those were some good times.

    I also seem to remember rushing home from a soccer game (at a very young age) with my friends to their house to watch the first WreslteMania- we actually got there a little after it started. Their parents had purshcased cable just for the event. If I remember correctly, both the cable remote and the VCR remote were attached with a wire. I also seem to remember King Kong Bundy winning his match in like 20 seconds or something and thinking, “Wow, what an athlete!”

    Drinking beer is fun, even if it does cause the death of brain cells.

    Both the cable remote and the VCR remote were attached with a wire? Did they live in a trailer park?

    Dude, it was 1985. I believe Mr. McL……. would have had to mortgage his house to get a non-wired remote.
