Been a while...but I am still here.

Sorry for the delay for the one person who probably reads my blog. I haven't been much of a diary guy so i lose track of what i am doing and forget to come here and post. Tons of stuff has happened since i last posted. Cousins getting married, people having kids, new columns being written. Too much to get into in one post but for the most part, know that stuff is happening. Check me out on My Space now as everyone and their mothers and fathers now have pages even though i was down before them all. I was cool before it was cool to be cool. Look at cool old me.

Anyway, Extreme Championship Wrestling is back and I am covering it for World Wrestling Insanity. Give it a looksie. You can find it here.

Other stuff going on but i'll be back to discuss it later. Or tomorrow. Or soon. Who knows?

Big Things

Wow, it's been a while since i posted. When i originally decided to become a "blogger", i figured i would try to do one per day, maybe every two days the most. But unfortuneately that hasn't been the case due to a myriad of reasons. However the past month has been incredible for me which kept me from posting as much as i would have liked. First off, my cousin Charles (aka fellow blogger "Tools of the Trade") became the proud father of a baby girl named Megan on November 4, 2005.



Then, on November 23, 2005, i became a loving husband to a wonderful woman, my soulmate, partner and best friend.



So all in all, it has been a whirlwind of a month for me. I spent a week in Oahu Hawaii. An incredible place. I will add some pictures of that here soon. Besides that, i have just been trying to get into the swing of things. You can still check me out at World Wrestling Insanity and all the other places i frequent. Enjoy folks.

Rest In Peace Eddie Guerrero



MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - Eduardo Gory Guerrero, a World Wrestling Entertainment superstar was found dead in his hotel room Sunday in Minneapolis, where he was scheduled to appear that evening in a WWE Supershow. He was 38.

When he didn't respond to a wake-up call, hotel security at Minneapolis Marriott City Center and Guerrero's nephew and fellow WWE wrestler, Chavo Guerrero, forced their way into the room, police said.

There were no apparent signs of foul play or suicide, police said. An autopsy was planned at the Hennepin County medical examiner's office.

He was a featured star on the UPN series "WWE Smackdown!" and son of Mexican wrestler Gory Guerrero.

Chavo Guerrero and McMahon said Guerrero was open about his past drug and alcohol abuse but they said he'd been sober for four years.

In February 2004, Guerrero became the second wrestler of Hispanic heritage to be WWE champion when he defeated Brock Lesnar, a former University of Minnesota wrestling standout. Guerrero lost the title four months later.

In May 2004, UPN aired the special "Cheating Death, Stealing Life: The Eddie Guerrero Story." The one-hour program chronicled his childhood and his struggle with drug addiction that almost cost him his job, family and life before his recovery and eventual capture of the WWE championship.

Just some stuff

World Wrestling Insanity

Chucky is a DAD. Congrats DUDE. Megan Alexis was born on 11/4/2005. She is 8 lbs. 10 ozs. 19 inches long. I am so happy for him and his wife. Fantastic stuff.

I am getting married in a few weeks. I am also very excited. It is going to be fantastic. Everyone keeps telling me that the day is going to fly by. I hope not. But if it does, so be it. I am going to sit back and enjoy the ride.

The NY Giants are in first place. 6-2 record. Excellent. I smell a Super Bowl trip coming.

I have been to 2 Knick games this year. 1 exhibition and 1 regular season game. Knicks record for those two games? 0-2.

Wearing contact lenses. Feel a little weird but i am getting used to it.

My dad is in the Bronx from Puerto Rico. First time in NY in 4 years. He is adjusting. He is here for my wedding and will be here until December. He is leaving while i am gone on my honeymoon.

Working hard. Working long hours. Working late. Lots of work. Don't think i have ever had a job where i work so many damn hours. But it pays the bills and brings me some cheddar so i cant complain too much.

Need to get DVR. Cablevision now carries it. Hear it is the greatest invention for television.

Wrestling is sucking lately. Let me rephrase. WWE wrestling is sucking. TNA however, doing well for themselves.

That's all for now. I'LL BE BACK.
