2011 - An Overview of the Best...and the Worst
Starting way back in January when a "Green Hornet" movie still seemed like it might be a good idea, I got my first taste of wrestling in the second week of the year wrestling with my good friend Mr. A in Chicago. It was a cold trip up north, but I was kept warm on his mats and in the gym, working out, flexing, and wrestling. That, my friends, was a definite high.
About a week later I wrestled Mr. J here in my hometown. He's a really nice guy. Much younger than me, but sort of heavy. He looks like Harry Potter. Wrestling is maybe a bit of a stretch here. He was actually far more interested in sex - and sort of bondage sex at that. I tried to be a good sport, but in the words of Margaret Cho - "This is just not me."
February came along, bleak and cold. I did not wrestle anyone the whole month, but I watched a lot of wrestling on TV - and by wrestling, I mean college wrestling. Big Ten Network. I was especially interested in watching David Taylor from Penn State. He made it all the way to the end of February without a loss. Here's David:
In April I wrestled one time, again with Mr. J from here in town. May was sort of barren as well. Although I did wrestle Mr. T (not the Mr. T) - a guy from the southern part of my state. Although he professed to be straight, we had a good match. He was quite a bit bigger than me, but I still gave him a hard time.
June was another great month. I flew to Washington DC and wrestled guys every day. Probably the best thing about that trip was meeting M, a now-close friend of mine. We wrestled and then had dinner. Since then we've stayed in touch. I also got to wrestle some of the guys from the DC area and that was great, too. They had a friend who let us borrow his basement and mats - and we wrestled all morning one day.
July introduced me to Mr. G, a guy from Texas who drove up and wrestled me. He is my size and extremely hot. We had the best time wrestling. I want to wrestle him over and over again, but distance and time make it difficult. Below is a picture of the two of us going at it.
August I wrestled Mr. G again and, later in the month, a guy whom I'd wrestled years before. We spent one Saturday morning wrestling and taking pictures.
The rest of the year saw my wrestling sort of fall off. I did wrestle a guy here in town a month ago - Mr. I - who was really hot and fun to wrestle. Unfortunately, he doesn't seem to be available very often. Too bad.
The new year coming up has some promise, but I expect work to be very intense and for me to have to work a lot of overtime hours. I'm off right now, but oddly have not been able to scare up a match. So, I'm running and working out and preparing for the holiday. I hope you guys have a great Christmas and New Years, and I hope to see you sometime in 2012!
