Well, not exactly. I got a chance to wrestle this morning - sort of out-of-the-blue. A guy who has been on global for years but who has not responded to messages suddenly showed up and wanted to wrestle. I had never wrestled the guy before, so I wasn't exactly sure what I was getting into. But I wound up having a great time.
This fella, let's call him Mr. I - lives by himself and has a room that he can dedicate to wrestling. He's built. Stocky and muscular (the way I like 'em) and really a nice guy. Although he's heavier than me, we wrestled for quite a while this morning and had a great time at it. He really knows how to keep a match going, applying holds and releasing, and letting me do the same.
Even better, he wants to try and arrange a monthly or even weekly get-together for guys who want to wrestle. He is in the process of buying some mats for his garage, and he says he knows a few other guys who he says will want to come over and wrestle. Where in the world he has found some other guys in my area, I have no idea. I can't hardly find anyone! So, this all looks pretty hopeful. Of course, as you well know, it may all fall through.
Meanwhile I continue running, working out (as much as possible) and wrestling when ever I get the chance. I'm planning on a trip to DC next Spring just to wrestle. There are several guys in the DC area that I love to get naked and grapple with (you know who you are) so I hope they will be available.
Until then, I will lift and run and sweat as much as time allows. Wrestle hard, dudes!
