    My pleasure!

  3. Wait a minute! Wasn’t wrestling an original sport in the ancient Greek Olympics? The very fact that it has to ‘Sing for it’s Supper’ says volumes about how this highly politicized leadership has drifted away from the Olympic origins. I mean Wrestling vs. Squash? Softball? Baseball? (A sport which I absolutely love , by the way) Badmiton ? C’mon! If there’s no room for Wrestling in the ‘Modern’ Olympics, lets just change the name to the ‘Summer X Games’ , put it on ESPN , and be done with it!

      Tell me about it. It really felt that one of the biggest issues was the aura of entitlement surrounding the wrestling federations – because of the very feeling that history would not let them fade to black. Was this a message to Olympic sporting in general as well as wrestling diretly, to avoid complacency? We’ll know in a few months!

      Thanks,

      Chris
