Slainte, another great bio-read,,,
one personal item to me,, after reading the two bio’s so far,, man I am out of touch with today’s music.. say I!
But in touch with the great energy these Spartans and their Coaches have and will continue to have.
You may think you are out of touch, but I’m going out on a limb here assuming stuff about you, Journey’s “Don’t Stop Believing” is a huge hit today. I’m assuming that’s more of your era right?
Begorra Derek thanks for the ‘youth’!
Man I was born in the Big D back in the 40’s,,
saw so many rock before even Motown… two of my favorites were Jackie Wilson and Jack Scott.
Man I wrestled in a two leg to shoulder strap singlet and our match mat was 4 practice mats together with a canvas covering.. later got one mat….
Favorite song today by Mr. Louie Armstrong,,, ” A wonderful world”.
So Sparta wrestling sure adds to our wonderful world.
side note” another song I hear allot around here this week..
Is that o’ Neil Diamond Classic,,,,”””” Song sung blue everyone knows one song sung blue the Pack blue one….. ( blue being the main color of the Giants.
Slainte for this Thursday,, who will win ”’ The Spartans or the Vikings”???
It’s going to be a good one…
