    Default You know you're getting old when..

    Following all the conference tournaments wipes you out . I feel like I wrestled all weekend .
    You know, I think I would rather be a man than a god . We don't need anyone to believe in us. We just keep going anyhow. It's what we do.

    It took me two days with prescription pain meds to make back.
    I attended my first wrestling match in 1957. I was wrestling at 95lbs.

    I wrestled my first wrestling match at 73 pounds soaking wet in 5th grade (30 years ago in St. Louis, MO) and wrestling my last official one 119 lbs my senior year, 22 years ago, in Mankato, MN) I did some freestyle that summer and some club wrestling in college but never again saw the 130's I'm afraid to say.
