Home Sweet... Home?

I don’t think I’ve ever really been short of words on my own ideas and whatnot; then again, I’ve really never been so limited in my daily endeavors.

At the end of this month, I’ll be returning home to Maryland. I’ve been long awaiting my return home – but to be completely honest, I’m going to miss the South. I’m a big-city guy, and while I miss home and can’t wait to return, I don’t know that I won’t miss Louisiana as much as, if not more than I miss Maryland at the moment.

But the fact remains, nothing is remaining here for me. The duty which called me here in the first place no longer exists, and the duty for which I remained after that, neither remains. The only thing tying me here is to tie up the loose ends in the situations which had drawn me to Louisiana, and after that, I’ve got some family here who aren’t immediate… and no friends. I’ve got my immediate family and my best friends in Maryland, and I’d be better suited surrounded by them on my future journeys.

But it’s crazy how a place you come with no intention of slotting into can begin to feel like home. Maryland has a safety net of familiarity, family, and friends… but here in my neck of the woods in Louisiana, I feel safe in almost every sense of the word. I don’t look over my shoulder when I pass someone and clutch my knife, I don’t feel uncomfortable driving around here… if I was looking to live somewhere I wouldn’t have to worry, this would be where I turned.

But my mission is to find my way elsewhere, and I want to get as much out of my friends and family in Maryland before I do get there. I know I’m a true southerner at heart – but I’m a “Northern” city-boy born and raised… and I much prefer to head back to that environment with my friends and family…

Tattoos And The Idiots Who Have Them

More and more in recent weeks, I’ve found myself entirely too devoted to bashing tattoos. I’ve got no problems with people getting tattoos, so long as they actually have some kind of meaning to the person other than “I paid for it” or “it’s on me now so that’s what it means to me” or “it looked awesome”. More and more I see people tattooing the most random things to their body, most people covering their body with the nonsense… and more and more, I’ve found myself entirely too devoted to bashing tattoos. Thank a friend via Twitter recently for showing me a picture of some idiot tattooing stars up and down the side of his face. This began my rant against face tattoos. If you’re in a profession or religion where it’s deemed appropriate, fine… tribal tattoos don’t necessarily cause this reaction for me. I also would never have the balls to call Mike Tyson a fool for tattooing his face. But if you’re just a run-of-the-mill Joe… you shouldn’t be tattooing your face with anything.

Mock Royal Rumble 2017

I do not have any insider knowledge about surprise entrants into the Royal Rumble. As of me writing this, I believe there are only 22 confirmed participants for the Rumble. I also do not have any insider information about the order of the entrants, or the winner. I am just putting together a mock I think makes sense + what I would personally like to see accomplished in the match. 1. Sami Zayn - Zayn will be the Iron Man in this year's Rumble, building onto his Daniel Bryan-esque push of late with Stephanie making his life more difficult than it has to be for no apparent reason. 2. Chris Jericho - Iron Man #2. I expect both of these guys to go the distance in this year's Rumble, and Jericho's as good as any for spurts of offense in a long match. 3. Big E - We have to add some size early to immediately slow down Zayn & Jericho. In recent years, the first 10 spots in the Rumble have entered and been eliminated quickly, and we haven't seen the ring fill up unt

Top 10 Wrestling Matches of 2016

Before we begin, these are strictly my opinion for what entertains me. I would love to hear anyone's opinion on my list, along with what their list is for the 2016 calendar year. I am not focusing strictly on the WWE, and this list will not be strictly singles matches. I also have not watched every match from every company, so if I'm missing something you believe is clear cut, there may be a chance that I did not see the match. Top 10 Wrestling Matches of 2016 2016 was a very incredible year for professional wrestling, in mainstream promotions like WWE and New Japan Pro Wrestling, to independent promotions like EVOLVE and Pro Wrestling Guerrilla. British professional wrestling promotions Revolution Pro Wrestling and newly formed What Culture Pro Wrestling have been a refreshing spark in the European scene and have since seen prominence in WWE's Cruiserweight Classic (CWC) and upcoming United Kingdom Championship Tournament. See the list after the break.
