Unreal story from MSNBC today about what happened to Ruland Gardner in 2002 in a snowmobile mishap .
You have to think he's trying to prove that 2000 wasn't a fluke, and that there'll be 1 or 500 mentions of the thing with his toe, since if an competing athlete has a hangnail NBC runs with it as a human interest story.
Well a Bronze medal with no freaking middle toe is pretty impressive.
I wonder if he would consider going pro like Angle. Kurt said a couple of years ago that if the business wants to evolve they need more olympic wrestlers to turn pro because as it is the only guys who can really stay with him are Eddie and Benoit.
You know, I watched the replay of the bronze medal match, and that is just WAY TOO MUCH time spent hugging between two big sweaty, half-naked men for me. It took them FOREVER to get into position when they were in overtime.

I'm a huge wrestling fan, growing up in a wrestling family, and Greco-Roman wrestling is just plain boring. The whole "no legs" thing really messes stuff up, in terms of excitement for me. The whole point is to pummel until you get an inside advantage, and then toss.
Now, the freestyle coming up is going to be super exciting. It's a shame the coverage sucks so much that I'll only get to see U.S. wrestlers, and only then if they're up for medals.
