So, I took the family out for dinner last night, and while driving home my 2 sons (ages 17 and 11) as in the back seat talking about wrestling. They have been into it quite a bit for the past year. Anyway, I could have sworn I heard them say something about "The-W", so I asked them. They said they had stumbled across it because they like the captions on the Raw threads each week. They were stunned when I told them I had been on this board since it started and then that started a discussion about where I started looking at wrestling on the net (back to MiCasa, John Petries page, and Wrestlemaniacs).

And, after the discussion, I felt just a bit older!

So you're saying I shouldn't have stopped doing caption threads? Hmmmmmm.

Wait until they ask you when you started watching!

I was talking trash with a couple teenagers at my church a couple years ago and I did the "U CANT SEE ME" thing with my hand for a laugh (we were playing football in the parking lot). They were BLOWED AWAY that I even knew what that was. Whenever I find out a kid watches wrestling, I always ask them what their first Wrestlemania was. I think theirs was 23 or 24. When I told them I cried when King Kong Bundy made Hulk Hogan bleed in the steel cage at WM2, I became The Oldest Man in the World :)

Where did John Petrie end up? I haven't thought about him in a long time.

I cried when he lost to Warrior at VI. I was seven.
