The Ups and Downs of Setting Up a Match
Well, it's Thursday and my hopes of rounding up an opponent are all going down for the count. I thought I might be wrestling a guy this evening. He is from out-of-town. Bigger than me. But my self-confidence is pretty damned high these days. I was ready. After a flurry of emails...nothing. I'm not even sure if he's still coming to town. I assume not.
I also had a good chance for a match this weekend with a guy from a neighboring state. He was all set to drive up and wrestle me, but I have to work! I couldn't believe it. I had to work all last weekend too. What a drag.
So, I keep my hopes pinned on the weeks to come. I'm sure a match will present itself eventually. In the meantime I'll do my thing-the running, the lifting, the eating right. And when I get a chance - just like YOU - I will wrestle hard.
Oh, and just a quick note to all my Brazilian readers: thanks for the words of encouragement and compliments. You guys are great!
