no fucking way! RIP to a legendary wrestler and lyrical genius.

I'm going to go snap into a Slim Jim tonight before the rapture.



They're saying it was a heart-attack while driving followed by a crash, but I'm pretty sure Hulk Hogan had something to do with it.




Apparently he just got married 1 year ago. Here's what he looked like these days. I'd like to remember him as always wearing his wrestling gear.

So many dead legends in this clip: Mr. Perfect, Miss Elizabeth, and now the great Macho Man Randy Savage.

RIP, Macho Man.

Thanks for the memory I have of you flying off the top ropes with a ring bell that led to Ricky "The Dragon" Steamboat being carted off in a neck brace and on a stretcher, and also, my brother crying about it.

I remember this match vividly. I kicked the shit outta my Macho Man doll for years even though I loved it. OH YEAH!

RIP

saddened but not shocked.

this reminds me of Bob Probert's death last July.


alpha male + violent sport + powdery drugs = early exit from life
too much for a cardiovascular system to handle..



Dave Duerson FTW... kinda a hero to me in a little way.
i played football in HS.... but i'd never let my own child play.
maybe soccer or basketball..

R.I.P.

You'd never let your kid play football? That's silliness, man.

That said, I'll never let my kid play soccer. Just because.

I've come to the conclusion after seeing recent pics and the one above that he was actually half silverback gorilla.

RIP Macho

Maybe if I was my dad, I'd see no harm in it....
but all this new head trauma science scares me.

i might even hide my metallica and slayer CDs from it to prevent it from headbanging.
...but that might be taking it too far.



i dunno.
i haven't made any kids yet.....

i'd probably be a shitty dad and encourage wrexless behavior..


icarus is my role model.

Are you serious? Have you been following all of the research that's being discovered about the long-term impact of football? All the subconcussive trauma, especially.

If not, here are the NYT's groundbreaking articles on the topic.

Then there was Malcolm Gladwell's on-point (in a non-Gladwellian way) New Yorker piece on the topic.

My kids won't be allowed to play football either. A lot of people are beginning to feel this way to the point that I think it's a realistic possibility that football will go the way of boxing within the next 20 years or so: it well be exclusively a sport in which poor kids abuse themselves. (Well, more like that than it is now)
