Time fly’s!

So this last week has been extremely hectic for me. In the midst of everything I’ve had going on I left my loyal readers without any new reading materiel to balk at. I know all of you are so heartbroken that you’ve moped around in your PJ’s for the last week as acting as if your goldfish died. So without another moment wasted let me update you on what has transpired in the last six days of my life.

 

 

FRIDAY: I began my piece on Tu Tienda Azteca which I should have finished by the end of the week. Thanks Again Oscar!

SATURDAY: The p.m. hours saw me covering Bay Brawler Chapter 2:Revenge. Check out the coverage here!

SUNDAY: “Memory Missing”

MONDAY: Got the word to start a piece for Front Row Fights about the twitter beef between Jose Canseco and Shaquille O’Neal.

TUESDAY: Made a mad rush to finish the article due to Shaq speaking on the matter earlier in the day. Check it out here! Along with another MMA piece which should be seeing the light of day as your reading this.

WEDNESDAY: Updated all of you about the on goings of my so called life!

All of that on top of all the other various projects I’ve been constantly working on proved to be exhausting. Now if you don’t mind i’m going to go jump out a my second story now!

Hole in What?

This weekend was the official celebration of my daughters 7th birthday. I had discussed with her a few weeks back what she wanted to do. It was explained to her that this year we were on a budget (broke) and we wouldn’t be doing a big party. Well lucky for us she had zero issues not having a big party and decided she only needed two things to have a good birthday. The first was dinner at Olive Garden which was not an absolute if it hinders her chance at getting the second thing… Miniature Golf or Mini Golf as her and her brother so passionately refer to it. Well in the last week she had already made two trips to olive garden before she even made it to my house, one with her nana and the other with her auntie. I swear this kid must be some kind of con artist. Continue reading

Another step foward

So as of today I’ve taken another big step forward in the journey of realizing my ultimate goal. I took the steps to being published on two websites that have daily traffic in the millions and I got a gig with a site that covers local and regional MMA. Anybody that knows me knows how I feel about the sport of MMA, how can I not be excited to have the opportunity to cover something that I enjoy so much! Beyond that I started blogging over at SB nation recently in hopes to build a big enough resume to become a staff writer on one of their many MMA sites. So with that said I’ll be making a few changes here. Nothing that will change the format but something that will help expose my readers to more than just what I have to spout off here on my blog.

Memoirs of a squared circle: 5 wrestling games of my youth

Now if you’ve read my blog or even just skimmed through the articles I’ve written then you absolutely know that video games are a big part of what I tend to write about. So it should be no surprise at all that they would eventually contaminate everything else this blog contains, not a single subject is safe for the infectious topic that is gaming. I did the best I could to bring you pro wrestling orientated stories that included absolutely zero button smashing! Well i’m sorry to inform you that  the games have invaded and MOASC waved that white flag in complete and total surrender. Continue reading

Memoirs of a Squared Circle

My fifth grade school year can be described in various terms. The first being overwhelming due to the fact that I had been uprooted from the only school I had ever known and dropped into a new school in a completely different city. To be honest I had no issues with the city itself (I basically grew up in Oakland before we moved there) but the problem lied within the fact I knew no one other than my cousin at this new school. That alone can terrorize any ten year old because contrary to belief fitting in isn’t always as easy as it sounds. Continue reading

Memoirs of a Squared Circle

So today while rummaging through boxes that me and my significant other have stuffed so generously into our son’s closet I came across something that took me back to days of my youth. Now what I was initially looking for were old theatre calendar’s for a piece I’m working on, but what I came across was a few old wrestling magazines along with my official idiots guide to professional wrestling! The book actually came from the tail end of my interest in the sport. My obsession with pro wrestling started sometime in the early 80’s. I couldn’t tell you exactly when, but I can say as long as I’ve had memory’s professional wrestling has been part of them. Continue reading
