But that's not important right now. Let's check out some mail, shall we?
I was at the Melbourne Nitro but I haven't yet seen it on TV. The crowd would have been edited out around three times because the three biggest chants of the night were inappropriate for television. When the Franchise was talking the was a HUGE chant of 'YOU ARE A WANKER' that probably went for over 60 seconds. He just stopped talking and stood there. It was a great moment. Another thing the Melbourne crowd did was, instead of chanting 'BORING', they chant 'SHOW US YOUR TITS' at the female valets. This happened twice and one of them was the biggest chant of the night. Even bigger than the 'GOLDBERG' chant. It was a good show, I guess.
After Clarke's comment he is treading on truly sacred ground. If I remember correctly isn't our Patron Saint's second favorite activity "snappin' necks and cashin' checks". We all know his first is "gettin' all up in your butt" so maybe it's not as big a deal as I'm making it.
Great report as always. I might have to start watching again. Keep up the good work.
Actually, it's breakin' necks and cashin' checks. Just thought I'd correct ya for all the fruit booties out there.
I think DDT Digest should sponsor a "Be David Flair for a Month Contest". Requirements are:
- No talent whatsoever in your given profession;
- Complete inability to embarrass oneself, and;
- Have a relative who is willing to call in 30 years worth of favors to keep you working.
Imagine Walk down an aisle, stand in a ring, assume the "deer in headlights" look, allow a large man to perform two wrestling moves on you, lay dead like a dog and get paid what it probably takes me six months to earn. Are we sure David doesn't have a Bollea somewhere in his family tree?
Check the hairline in five years and you'll get an answer to your last question.
And while I'm on that subject, R. I. P., Yokozuna. While his legend wasn't as high as someone like Ric Flair, he did contribute to wrestling history by winning the WWF World Title twice and the WWF Tag Team Titles once with (the late) Owen Hart. He also ended Hulkamania upon winning his second WWF Title, but that's semantics. :-)
