Three Guys Hiatus and More

There hasn't been an episode of Three Guys from Nowhere in quite some time (almost a month). And there probably won't be another until February. I just saw a special someone's birthday is February 4th, so that may be scrapped too. But things have been going on!

The holidays and other family related nonsense ate up a ton of time, preventing shows from being recorded and wrestling season picks up this weekend (visit CHIKARA Pro for more details) and continues the following weekend (see Dragon Gate USA for even more details). I love my wrestling just as much as comic books, but comics very rarely have me out of my house longer than a few hours on a Wednesday.

In my life, I've been a huge fan of comic books and wrestling. Never in my wildest dreams did I ever think I would have any direct involvement in any of these, especially wrestling, the one that takes the most physical ability, of which I have none.

This weekend marks the beginning of my seventh year of direct involvement with wrestling (more on that later). Last year I did commentary for 34 shows and set to do more this coming year. A great man before me once stated (I'm paraphrasing here) "Just because you had 100 over 10 years, doesn't mean you've been in the business for 10 years."

There is not a day or show that goes by or direct involvement with wrestling that I do not pinch myself. That may be the wrong feeling to have and I usually get over it fairly quickly, however, every show, I recognize how lucky I am to have the opportunities afforded to me.

Something else on the horizon is my involvement in a pending documentary on the hay day of VCW, "Ghosts of the Valley" or something to that effect. VCW is where I got my start in participating in the wrestling business some 10 plus years ago. This documentary is something I have thought about doing myself but am very lazy and several people from those days I wouldn't know how to reach are not too keen on me. I can see this fact painting me in a poor light once the documentary is done. As long as old VCW matches get on YouTube, I will be a happy man.

As for the podcast, Todd (I think) and I enjoy doing the show, but sometimes I feel like we are just spinning our wheels. We get very little feedback and have even fewer listeners. It's frustrating at times. Who knows, the end may be near. It was a fun ride while it lasted, regardless. Let me know if you care.
