The Sensational One Passes

I learned today that Sherri Martel died last week. From when I was about 10 years old until I was entering college I watched wrestling. You know, back before the scripts were so crazy (okay, a storyline about an undertaker who’s dead but not but blah blah blah) and it was still entertaining to watch.

One of the most entertaining performers, to me, was Sensational Sherri. The ultimate bad girl. She was my #1. My favorite woman on wrestling and in the top five of all of my favorites. This is embarrassing, but when I saw someone mention casually on a website that she had died last week I felt like crying.

Saturday Night’s Alright for Fighting

Saturday night I went to a hockey game in Memphis (technically Southaven, MS) to see the RiverKings play against the Youngstown Steelhounds. It was a fine time. Fun was had by all.

The game was tied 4-4 and went into sudden death overtime. That didn’t help the score any, but the shootout did. The RiverKings wound up winning 5-4 in the shootout. There weren’t really any fights–damned refs jumping in and stopping them–but it was still an enjoyable time.

Hockey SwagI got some free junk while I was there: a Mr. Potato Head hockey player (complete with extra face with missing tooth) and a bobblehead of one of the players (since I went with a group).

The last time that I went to a hockey game I think it was 1997. I went with a friend’s church group. We got to play “broomball” on the ice (hockey with a ball and brooms instead of pucks and sticks) and one girl fell forward and smacked her braces on the ice. She picked herself up, though, and kept going. What a trooper. Anyway, it was fun ten years ago and it was fun Saturday night.
