I digress

We all need rest days.  Tuesday is my scheduled rest day and I very much look forward to it every week.  Today I did absolutely nothing and it was everything I thought it could be.  I have noticed one thing about myself since I have started training.  My hunger is sky high recently.  Especially in the mornings.  I am hungry.  But that's expected I suppose.  Really, I don't have much to say about my training today because it was an off day.  But I must digress for a second. 

Growing up in the 80's I was a huge pro wrestling fan.  Hulk Hogan, Roddy Piper, Macho Man, Andre the Giant, Ric Flair, Rock & Roll Express, The Four Horsemen, I loved them all.  Then the 90's rolled around and I stopped watching it for a while.  Then Stone Cold Steve Austin hit the scene like a ton of bricks.  Along with him was The Rock.  These guys were the best things to happen to wrestling since Hulk Hogan (pre reality show Hulk Hogan).  I came back to watch wrestling in the late 90's because these guys were extremely entertaining and because I am a big giant nerd deep down inside.  Then the WWE started getting a little too soft core porn, I had kids, and just stopped watching.  The Rock and Stone Cold left to do movies, albeit bad ones. 

I haven't really paid much attention to it in recent years mostly because I have attempted to grow up and show some signs of maturity.  But last night I was transported back 12 years to a time where I loved watching it.  The Rock showed up on Monday Night Raw last night and brought the house down.  I don't even have cable to watch it but it was on numerous websites today and I watched it, several times.  It was absolutely the best wrestling moment in years and made me a nerd again.  Sorry Kate.
