Lee has yet to fill out a bio.
about the Rut/Ala game 1980: You have a better memory than me. I don't recall the punt return. I just remember the RU offensive line moving around the Ala defensive line in the second half.
Thanks for sharing, Lee. IVP is one of my favorite places to shop.
I just might have to do that Lee. Thanks for the history lesson. I'll let you know what I think!
Got big legs?
Thanks for the comment Lee. I always appreciate someone who actually brings something more to the table than the same old Attitude Era opinions. Sadly it appears that we do our homework more than most of the writers on this site. I can't believe they actually declined you when in the past two weeks I've seen articles about Hogan inducting Savage(even though savage hated the man and all he stood for) and the choke slam being banned in wrestling because the writer didn't understand Big Show was talking about doing it with fans for photo-ops. Like you said, there are a few decent ones, but you should apply again for the Lacrosse job if you enjoy it that much. This website could use a few more openminded writers. Good luck to you:)
I appreciate your insightful outlook on the incident. I agree with you that I would put more blame on Andre than Maeda. Good points about Frenchy's involvement as well. I began writing the article with the intent of revealing the truth of what happened, but soon found that the situation is murky. Definitely an odd match and an interesting circumstance.
About the Maeda/Andre match. As I said, there's not a lot to go on but speculation. Neither man did a shoot interview that I could find. My theory about him being drunk is just based on his lack of balance and wobbliness. Struggled to find definitive answers either way,
Thanks for your comment. I certainly considered a number of people. Tragos and Vachon are both in my book Shooters, but didn't make my list.
Hardest to leave off was probably Farmer Burns.
Londos had a reputation as a showman who was only above average on the mat, so I didn't consider him strongly for a spot. Maeda was the same. A tough guy, but avoided actual shoots like the plague when his contemporaries all had real matches. That says something to me.
Thanks for the post and I recall the incident but it didn't come to mind for the taboo article simply because it isn't as widely known about so in the interest of the length of the article, went with the more popular incidents.
Yeah, I've checked out quite a few. It's good stuff. I thought I knew a little but about this stuff, but now I'm realizing I knew almost nothing. Haha.
