    Must be fun to a fan of team Russia on a wrestling message board. "Oh, gee, we won again!"

    Wasn't it called St. Petersburg a long time until a different group of pricks renamed Leningrad. And I am pretty sure the vast majority of Russians want it called its historical name of St. Petersburg, but you are the one calling them pricks.

    New York used to be called New Amsterdam also.

    My two favorite things as a young kid, school and wrestling, were better in Leningrad.

    Where did food rank on your list of favorites? I doubt that they had McDonalds there back then!

    I had enough food. There was plenty of food in Leningrad I can assure you. Actually I did not care that much about food until I came to America and saw all the choices. Its more of a "want more when you see it" type of a thing.

    Russia, industry as well as people, always had a notion that eating too much is bad. In America it is also prevalent that too much food is bad but that is negated by plentiful and relatively cheap food available along with commercials (e,g buy one get one free, half price and so on).

    Hey gofer, apparently the other place decided this topic was newsworthy:
