Monday Morning Quarterback for 6-16-14

30 years is a long time for this soon to be 46 year old man.  According to Oklahoma State Football Coach Mike Gundy, I will soon be a man + 6.  For those who do not get the reference, can click here.

I was thinking of something that happened in February of 1984 recently and its possible impact on the pro wrestling industry.  Today, you have Daniel Bryan and John Cena, in the 90′s it was The Rock and Stone Cold, in the 80′s in was Hulk Hogan and Ric Flair.  All of these were great champions of the sport.  There could have been another name you could have added to this list of great champions if he had lived to finish his wrestling career.  That man’s name was David Von Erich.

eb8221b2c7davidvonerich

David was probably to most overall talented member of the famous Von Erich family that wrestled out of Dallas, Texas.  Growing up in Lawton, Oklahoma (around 3 hours north of Dallas), I got to see the Von Erichs wrestle every week on TV and once a month live when they to visited Lawson (great times).

At that time, things were set up for Ric Flair to drop the NWA Championship Belt to David.  Von Erich and Flair had some great matches leading up to the time that David would become champion (around April of 1984).  Sadly, David never made it to April of that year.

During February of that year, David died while on a tour of Japan.  There are many theories behind David’s death.  Some of those theories are discussed In the documentary Heroes of World Class: The Story of the Von Erichs and The Triumph and Tragedy of World Class Championship Wrestling.  Check out the documentary sometime and see for yourself.

I often wonder if David hadn’t passed away, what would have been his legacy in the wrestling business.  Could his name have been mentioned along side the great wrestling champions that I mentioned earlier in this blog?  We will never know.

30 years.  Man how does time fly…..

 

Have a great week!!!

On this week’s 2 Dudes and Podcast: The Westboro Baptist Church-Do they matter?

You may not know too much about the Westboro Baptist Church out of Topeka, Kansas, but if you follow the news, I am sure you may have seen them in action.  They are the “Christian” group that goes around and protesting the funerals of dead military men and women, homosexuals and victims of natural disasters in the name of God.  In their eyes, America is going to Hell!!

Westboro-Baptist-Church-Freaks

Does this group speak for all Christians?  Does this group give Christians a bad name in the eyes of the World?  Is this group a “hate group” just like the Klu Klux Klan?  Is this group just made up of a bunch of morons?  Does this group say and do the things you wish you could do and say?  Does this group matter?

Westboro Phelps The late Fred Phelps, Westboro Church founder

shirley-phelps-roper-bassel-el-kasaby-2010-8-23-17-20-13  Shirley Phelps Roper, former Spokesperson of the Westboro Church

With the death of Fred Phelps, the Church’s founder, this year, will the movement carry on with his daughter Shirley Phelps Roper or will this movement begin to fade away? 

We will discuss this topic and more on this week’s edition of 2 Dudes and a Podcast.  You can join in on the conversation with me (Steve Black) and Donnie Jackson this Friday night (6/13/14) from 9-11pm eastern at www.blogtalkradio.com/steveblackshow.  Call us at 646.716.7622 and be a part of our conversation.

Monday Morning Quarterback for June 9th

In horse racing, another year has passed and for another year, we have no Triple Crown winner.  Even the most casual of fan will pay attention when it comes to horse racing’s trifecta of races that make up the Triple Crown (Kentucky Derby, Preakness and Belmont Stakes).

california-chrome1

This year, the horse with the chance at the trifecta was California Chrome, a horse that was purchased for only $10,000 by Steve Colburn and Perry Martin.  Chrome won the Derby and the Preakness and it, along with its owners, were the darlings of the racing world.  This was the feel good story waiting to happen as California Chrome was getting set to race in the Belmont. 

Even in Hollywood, feel good stories do not always have a happy ending. California Chrome failed to take the third leg of the Triple Crown last Saturday.  Of course, if you have been following this story, you know that owner Steve Colburn’s post race comments, as well as his comments Sunday morning on Good Morning America, were that not of a home spun, rags to riches story, but that of sour grapes.

Here is a commentary on the subject from ESPN.com.

Colburn, in his comments, raised questions about the way the Triple Crown is raced, as well as the length between the races.  Does he have a valid point, or is it a case of “Sour Grapes”.  This is a topic that we will be discussing this Friday night on the next 2 Dudes and Podcast show on Blog Talk Radio.  You can check out the broadcast live from 9-11pm eastern time at this link.  Leave your thoughts on this subject here, or call us this Friday at 646.716.7622 and give us you opinion on this subject.

Have a Great Week!!!!
