USA Today Shows the B/R Wrestling Community Some Love: We Are Here to Stay!!

Demetrus StokesAnalyst IMarch 14, 2009

Friends of the B/R wrestling community!!  It is with great pleasure that I announce a major accomplishment for our community!

The USA Today has posted an article that I wrote during Black History Month on the top African-American wrestlers ever. 

Needless to say, personally I'm excited but I feel that this is a community accomplishment. 

I didn't write this to gloat or brag, because God knows I'm not the best writer in this community and I don't feel this was the best article I've written.

This was written to make all of you aware and the rest of the other communities here on Bleacher Report aware that the wrestling community is here and (excuse my broken English) we ain't going nowhere!! 

Sure people look at wrestling and say it's fake, it's not a sport, blah, blah, blah. 

Wrestling is something that we KNOW is fake but provides us entertainment and it's something that many of us love.  Just like you can love basketball and football (I love those too).   

It speaks to us on a personal level as Josh Sewell so passionately wrote....

It makes us laugh.  Just ask Shane Howard.

It can provide one of the best experiences of our lives.  Jason LeBlanc knows first hand.

In addition to all of this we prove time and time again that though it may not be the sport of your choice we have great writers who write quality, in depth articles that are well researched. 

Mina is a great example of such a writer.  Check out her work. jericho-ignited-my-fire-for-the-squared-circle

There are so many other countless names to list of people who do great work in this community. Ross, Daris, AkD, Ray, M.  The list goes on and on.   

Ron Johnson my friend, you should be proud.  I know I am.

So to all the great folks in the B/R wrestling community THANK YOU for what you do.  I enjoy logging on daily and reading your great work. 

Maybe one day we'll have a beer (or Kool-Aid, water, pop, etc. if alcohol is not your choice of beverage) and enjoy this great accomplishment.

To the rest of the Bleacher Report, get to know some of these great writers.  Because we'll be here for a long time.
