RIP Macho Man Randy Savage.

"Macho Man" Randy Savage in the summ...

I just heard from my partner that Macho Man Randy Savage was killed in an automobile accident in Tampa Florida today. He was 58 years old. 😦

Born Randy Poffo, Macho Man was a natural athlete; he was originally a catcher, working his way up through the St. Louis Cardinals farm system. If I remember right, a serious injury cut short his baseball career, and he took his dynamic persona to wrestling. His energy and high flying tactics in the ring immediately made him a fan favorite, even if he was bad guy inside the squared circle.

Hulk Hogan is often credited with making professional wrestling the juggernaut it is today: However, without his flamboyant arch-rival and later ally, The Macho Man, his, and pro wrestling’s popularity would not have reached the heights that it did.

RIP Macho Man; Many of us will be honoring you with an “OH YEAH!” while we snap into our Slim Jims tonight.

Here’s a clip of my boy wrestling Andre The Giant back in 1988:

    I never was a “wrestling fan”, but I’m happy that he was able to make it good in this ‘sport’.

    Oh yeah, NPR had an update on the end of the world. Now they say it starts at 11pm California time.
    Goodbye cruel world!
