Thread: What was the best year of your life?

    Default What was the best year of your life?

    So, what was the best year of your life?

    I've had a lot of good ones recently, tough to pick, but I'd say last year. Went on a few good vacations, got married, and met (or re-met) all of you!

    Hmm...I'm gonna make the prediction that this year is gonna be pretty far up there in reference to wrestling. I believe this because this year I'm very anxious to get into the room and get better, as opposed to last year when i dreaded going to practice everyday and leaving practice with a sweat drenched shirt. I mean i seriously never left the room with a dry shirt due to a blasted heater that somehow continued to launch itself to 105 degrees.

    But, all in all I feel that this year will be full of perseverance and the overcoming of adversity just due to the simple desire of getting better.

    this year -overcame so much that i really didn't think I had the strength to do -when you are 50 and they take your arm off it is a tad frightening -but i persevered and overcame -actually had an old high school girlfriend fall in love with me -too much-crotchety old bachelors can only take so much change at once =-She wanted me to give up my daily breakfast of Mountain dew and Milk Duds -a diet I have followed stringently since college .

    I'm not sure why this is in the Miscellaneous Wrestling forum since Schlottke's answers are really non-wrestling ones. This is a good question and really makes me think. Probably the best wrestling year of my life was 1978, when the team I coach on won the State Championship.

    It's hard to pick a best year of my life because every year had its ups and downs. The best events were (no surprise) my marriage an the birth of my daughter. My best wrestling moment as a competitor when I beat a New Jersey State Champ in college.

    My last three years, 24, 25, and 26. It seems like every year since I turned 24 has gotten better and better. Tomorrow I turn 27, and I expect more of the same.

    1995 thru 2001. Reni was born in 1995. We were a family. Got a nicer place to live in. Trips to Hawaiin Islands every year. Lots of family activities on both sides of the family. Good years as a wrestling coach, and as an "old guy" wrestler, and as a powerlifter. Enough money to do these things, save some, and a college fund for Reni (which I am spending now because she has another trust fund and wants to go back to the Islands). Lots of hiking, camping, river, and a variety of other activities. Just good times and good years all the way around.
    I am 49, bald, ugly, and don't own a single cool thing. Kids like me though.
