This is from today's NY Post. I think this guy just woke up on the wrong side of the bed or else has spent too much time with Phil Mushnick.

The opening sentence was the one that caught me..."THE wrestling buff may be the dumbest of the species and I must doubt my country is an enlightened nation as long as a citizen of this beautiful land purchases a ticket to this boring pantomime."

If I remember yesterday's print edition - this was a reprint article from the 1950's - he references Gorgeous George - maybe the writer was Mushnick's Dad.....

Jimmy Cannon's been dead for nearly 30 years. You can find a short bio of his at the International Boxing Hall of Fame website.

Well that explains a lot! Thanks for the info. I read this online and saw no reference (or missed the reference) to the published date.

You didn't miss a thing, lazzz. The nice folks at the Post have it dated Feb. 2, 2003. Maybe they run a weekly reprint of Jimmy Cannon's commentaries, and this was the installment for last Sunday? New York City Wieners, any ideas???

Every Sunday the NY Post runs a column from Past Editions of the NY Post - the hard copy even has it blocked so you can tell it's a "retro" article. Despite the current Sunday date of 2/2/03, the content of the article should have been a tip off since Gorgeous George has been dead for quite some time now.
