Re: NYC visit 7-8 October

As Benevolent Dictator of Bordeaux Wine Enthusiasts, I hereby order you to attend.
Right now I have a probation hearing in Portland (Maine) on Friday morning, I would have to get coverage in order to get there for Friday night.

You guys crack me up.
I'm pretty sure the blood is fake.
In fact, I'm pretty sure it's all fake.
These new guys can't hold a candle to the old timers though!

Re: Random thoughts: Momtazi, Wilder, Huma, JuanGa, and Mr. Fuji

I haven't watched wrestling since the early 1970s, when I was an early teen.
It was one of those things that made the 70s the greatest decade ever.

It sounds like Gene Wilder had a really devoted nephew and family with him in his final days.
He was quite a man.

Surely you guys have heard of Mr. Fuji's tag team partner, Professor Toru Tanaka?
I mean, you don't need to be a wrestling fan to know Chief Jay Strongbow, Gorilla Monsoon, Haystacks Calhoun, Andre the Giant. Bruno Samartino? Pedro Morales? These men were giants in their day.

Which, of course, makes sense, you don't resign a governorship over stupid comments.

So yes, Chris, the 2010 Poujeaux at that Saratoga store seems like the way to go. I don't think I've ever dealt with that store. Everything else seems pricey, in a Warren Beatty/David Geffen kind of way. The $36 price for 2010 Poujeaux seems rational, though, can't find much harm in ordering a half ...
