A real big THANKS of SLAINTE to the Montgomery’s son Derek ( father of the future of wrestling Jax,, and father/ and Grandfather Mont.) for this all encompassing web site!
To all the best of health and happiness.

‘ may the saddest days of your future
be not worse
than the happiest days of you past”

Thanks Tom! I hope Jax can wrestle, but since wrestling in Duluth means WWE (aka there is no high school wrestling in this city of 90,000) it probably means he’s destined for hockey or basketball if he wants to play sports.
Begorra, well seeing your so close to the Canadian Border ,, hockey..
I still don’t see basketball as a “real” sport!
I agree! The quote on the back of the 1993 Sparta wrestling shirts still rings true for me… “The site I adore, on a basketball floor, are wrestling mats, from door to door.”
