Via TMZ, Olympic-gold-medalist-turned-WWE-champion Kurt Angle got pinched for allegedly driving under the influence on Thursday night in Wise County, Texas. The arrest came after a live taping of Impact Wrestling. TMZ says it's Angle's fourth alcohol-related arrest—one for DUI, one for DWI, one for being asleep behind the wheel of a parked car—in six years.
"It breaks your heart. It is designed to break your heart. The game begins in the spring, when everything else begins again, and it blossoms in the summer, filling the afternoons and evenings, and then as soon as the chill rains come, it stops and leaves you to face the fall alone." --- Bart Giamatti, on baseball
Via @RealKurtAngle - "I am blessed to have the support of my family, my friends and my company. In light of recent events I will immediately be entering a rehabilitation center. I realize that this is a pivotal time in my life and I ask for your understanding as well as your prayers and continued support. I am confident that in taking these steps I can begin to address necessary changes in my life."
I got a message from one of my best friends who is a wrestling fan that I have always tried to talk and watch wrestling with while at the same time let him keep his enjoyment of the show without turning him into a jaded jackass like me.
