To Mom

Dear Mom,

I chose to do this a day after Mother's Day because no one day should ever define what you mean to me. I have a birthday where my thoughts are with you, not with the years I've lasted on this planet. Because if not for you, my birthday would not be my birthday.

I don't always express my thankfulness or tell you how much you mean to me. I know that you know how I feel about you. Of course, it's always nice to have that recognition. Every single day, I try to compose myself in a way that would make you proud and hopefully let others see that I am the product of a great mother.

I have never asked of you to be anything near what you are. You could have very well been a dead-beat mother who did not care. But you have, for coming up on 27 years, been everything great that you could be, and more, for me and Kenny. Even when times were tough, when things could have been easier on you for you to step back some and be a little less supportive (which we would have understood), you always put all of your effort and love into us.

I wish there was something, anything, that could truly show you how grateful the both of us are. I wish I could do something right now to make sure you never live a day with stress again. I know we're hard to deal with at times. I know you probably get frustrated by us coming to you for support in dumb little things. I'm certain you have considered, at least once, taking a long vacation away from us if you had the means. Or maybe you haven't... I'm sure, I know, I'm certain you haven't... because you've always done more than your best for us.

All I can tell you is I'm truly appreciative of everything you do, big or small. I admire your work ethic and your unwavering strength. I'm forever grateful for your support, your dedication, and your love. I know Kenny is as well.

Thank you for giving us a life, and doing whatever you could to make sure we got to live it more than well enough so far.


With all the love and thanks in our hearts, Happy Mother's Day,

Sean & Kenny

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.
