You can’t stop me from smoking the cigar, because I’m Gumby damn it…and secretly Dr. Manhattan in disguise.

Match #1: Jimmy Havoc def. Mance WarnerPrince of Darkness Match The following is courtesy of mlw.com:

“The Man of 14 Stone” first steps into the ring for what is guaranteed to be a match of darkness as both men will be blindfolded, but The Southern Psycho comes out with the Queens crowd fully behind him. The two make certain to put the hoods on simultaneously as they literally feel the ring out.

A Fine Pair And The Limits Of Claudia Love

This fall semester I started taking an Italian language class two evenings a week with my daughter, and Thursday night I was looking to decompress after our first big quiz.
