On Wednesday, I went to see my Respirologist to tell him about my recent Lung blockages.

Long story short, I’ll be getting a Chest X-Ray next Week, and he suggested for me to start using my Humidifier at home again.

I’m not a fan of using the Humidifier because last time I used it, I got sick. I got sick because Water kept getting into my Lungs, which isn’t really a good thing.

At this point though, I’m willing to try aything.
I’m going back to see him on June 16th.

While I was in his Office, we went through all of my old Chest X-Rays.
X-Rays have always interested me, even as a Kid. I think it’s cool looking at your own insides.
I gotta say though, my X-Rays always look really freaky because of the way my body is shaped.

In other news.
I’ve been using my Voice Amp wherever I go now, and it seems to be successful.
If I go to a Restaurant or Bar, I can actually order a Drink myself, which is a new experience for me.
I always had trouble ordering stuff due to it being loud, so whoever was with me would usually give the Waiter/Waitress my order.

Wrestling fans:
Tune into WWE Smackdown, and you might see my Wife and/or I on it with our sign for Kofi Kingston. The sign is on green paper, with a picture of Kofi Kingston jumping, and in big letters, it says BOOM BOOM BOOM.
If they show it, you can’t really miss it.

It’s a long weekend here.
My Wife & I will be at the grand Reopening of the Museum Of Nature tomorrow.
They spent a crapload of time and money renovating it, so we’re looking forward to seeing all the work they did.

I have an interesting story about that place.
The first time I went there as a Kid, I didn’t know they had Models of Dinosaurs & Dinosaur Bones.
As soon as I entered the Exhibit Room, I actually crapped my Pants because I was scared.
They had to take me to the Bathroom to change me.
I remember one of the guys had his Jaw wired shut due to Surgery, and he was scared of throwing up, so he left pretty fast.

I’ve been back since and everything was fine. I was still scared, but nothing has happened since that day.
Just to add to that challenge, I’ll be going on a Ghost Tour of the Building later that night too.
Hopefully, everything will be fine.

Well that’s it for now.
Have a good Weekend.

On Tuesday, my Wife & I attended a LIVE Taping of WWE Smackdown.
This was my first one in at least 6 or 7 years, and this was my Wife’s first time at a LIVE WWE Event.
In all honesty, she was a Trooper about the whole thing.
She even made a Sign for it.

If I knew how to post a pic here, I would, but I forget.

Anyways…
I considered writing Spoilers for this Week’s Smackdown, & Superstars shows for various Wrestling Websites, but I can’t write stuff down, and I actually wanted to enjoy the show.

So, I’ll just discuss what we did, because frankly, this is my Blog, and I’m hoping you’re interested.

Even though the show wasn’t starting until 6:45 pm, I wanted to get there early to see if I could meet some of the Wrestlers as they arrived.

We got to the Scotiabank Place around 2:30, and we headed to the back of the Arena.
By the time we got there, a few were already there with the same idea.
We took a few pics, including one with me holding a fake Title Belt that a guy paid $300 for.

As it turned out, I only got to meet one person, and he no longer wrestles.
I met the Host of WWE NXT, and Smackdown Commentator, Matt Striker.
He was really nice. We took a pic together, and then did an Autograph for me.

We left that Area around 4, and headed to the Y to use the Bathroom.
I’ve met a few Wrestlers there before, so we waited around for a bit before heading back outside to the back.
Still, no luck, and after awhile, we gave up.

We headed to the front of the Arena.
We noticed that The Score (Sports TV Channel) was having a Trivia Game.
Being a fan of free stuff, I went for it.

My Wife spun the Wheel for me.
As luck would have it, it landed on a Sports question, instead of a question about WWE.
I was kinda worried cause I’m not really a Sports Buff, but I didn’t give up.

The guy asked “How often is the World Cup held?”.
I responded “Every four years” which is the right answer.
I walked away with a The Score Water Bottle and a grin on my face.
From there, we headed inside.

Our first stop was the Souvenir Stand.
I wasn’t sure what to buy. I wanted a shirt, but nothing overly embarassing.
In the end, I bought a Rey Mysterio TShirt, & my Wife got a Kofi Kingston Necklace.

By this time, my Wife wanted to eat, so we headed to Bert’s.
I decided to just get a Beer, and my Wife had a Wrap or something.
By the time we were done, it was show time.

Once we were seated, I was REALLY surprised at how small everything was.
Normally, when I go to a WWE Event, I get Floor Seats, which is awesome.
I didn’t bother trying to do that this time, so we sat in the 200 Level.

I still had a good view, but I’m definitely gonna try to get Floor Seats next time.

The Show ended just before 10:30 pm, and my ride wasn’t scheduled for thirty minutes.

The place cleared out pretty fast, and we were one of the few left.
We didn’t get home until 12:30 am.

All in all, we were gone 10 and a half hours.
It made for a very long day, but I had fun though.

I really hope that they show my sign this Week on Friday Night Smackdown.
A friend of mine told me that she could see my sign from her Seat on the floor.
Hopefully the Cameras saw it too.

It’s that time of year again, wrestling fans. It’s time for Wrestlemania. That means that it’s also time for me to make my predictions about what’s going to happen on the show.

Chris Jericho vs. Jimmy “Superfly” Snuka, Ricky “The Dragon” Steamboat and Rowdy Roddy Piper w/Ric Flair For Chris Jericho to win, he has to defeat all three of the legends. For the legends to win, they have to defeat Chris Jericho just one time.

Alright, so in my opinion, the WWE dropped the ball on this one. Most fans (including myself) were expecting/hoping Stone Cold Steve Austin would face Chris Jericho in one final match. This would be fitting considering that Austin will be inducted into the WWE Hall Of Fame this weekend. It could’ve been like the Ric Flair/HBK match from last year, but with Austin winning in his home State of Texas. Instead, we get to see Jericho take on three legends.

Don’t get me wrong, I’m a fan of Snuka, Piper & Steamboat, but this isn’t the 80’s. I’m pretty sure they’re not as good as they were back then. Even though, the kid in me will be happy to see them appear. Chris Jericho is going to have to work really hard to make them look good.

Rumors are still floating around that Mickey Rourke will be there and that probably means he’ll be a part of the ending.

Prediction: Mickey Rourke punches Chris Jericho out and Ricky Steamboat gets the victory. I should point out that Ricky Steamboat is also going to be inducted into the WWE Hall Of Fame this weekend. I still have hope that Austin will somehow get involved as well.

The Undertaker vs. Shawn Michaels

This one will be good, possibly match of the night. There’s not much to say about this. The result is pretty predictable, but the road to it should be damn good.

Prediction: Undertaker pins HBK to keep his Wrestlemania undefeated streak alive for another year.

Extreme Rules Match: Matt Hardy vs. Jeff Hardy

This is another match that has the potential to steal the show. Wrestling fans know that both of these guys take HUGE risks in their respective matches, especially when they were a Tag Team. With this being Wrestlemania, an Extreme Rules Match, and a sibling rivalry, they will definitely be going all out.

Prediction: Matt Hardy will get the upset victory in a modern day version of Bret Hart VS Owen Hart.

25-Diva “Miss WrestleMania” Battle Royal: Known Participants – Melina, Maryse, Mickie James, Gail Kim, Michelle McCool, Nikki Bella, Brie Bella, Alicia Fox, Kelly Kelly, Maria, Eve Torres, Katie Lea Burchill, Beth Phoenix, Layla El, Rosa Mendes, Candice Michelle, Natalya Neidhart, Jillian Hall, Tiffany, Sunny, Torrie Wilson, Molly Holly, Victoria and Jackie-Gayda-Haas

The winner of this will be crowned Miss Wrestlemania. While I’m looking forward to seeing some of the older names, I could really care less about this. In a perfect world, Trish Stratus would be involved and go on to win, but as far as we know, she won’t be there.

Prediction: Oh, I don’t know. Let’s throw a dart and see where it lands. I’m gonna say that Sunny somehow wins.

Money in the Bank Ladder Match: CM Punk vs. Kane vs. Mark Henry vs. MVP vs. Shelton Benjamin vs. Kofi Kingston vs. Christian vs. Finlay

The annual MITB Match returns and this is typically one of my favorite matches every year. I’m sure this one will be no different. What I don’t get is why is Mark Henry involved? I hate to say it, but I’m not really sure if he’ll even be able to climb the ladder.

Prediction: I believe that Shelton Benjamin will FINALLY win the MITB. Every year, he manages to steal the match with his insane moves, but has fallen short of winning the big one. This year, he’ll climb the ladder, grab the briefcase, and cash in a World Title shot within a year of winning.

Winner Takes All – WWE Tag Team Titles vs. World Tag Team Titles – Unified Tag Team Title LUMBERJACK Match: The Miz and John Morrison © vs. Carlito and Primo Colon

I really don’t get why they made this a Lumberjack match, but besides that, this should deliver. These two teams have been having outstanding matches for the past few months. For those that don’t know, a Lumberjack match involves various wrestlers standing at ringside throwing the participants back into the ring if they get tossed out or try to escape.

Prediction: Carlito & Primo Colon go on to win.

IC Title Match: JBL © vs. Rey Mysterio

I’m happy to see the IC Title being defended at Wrestlemania, even if it is JBL. There’s not much more to say about this.

Prediction: JBL wins

World Title Match: Edge vs. The Big Show vs. John Cena

I don’t see why they decided to involve The Big Show in this match. I’d rather see Cena VS Edge 1 on 1 and have The Big Show be in the MITB Match. Even if he’s not able to climb that ladder, it’d be worth it to see him knock out a few people in that match.

Prediction: Cena wins the Title.

WWE Title Match: HHH © vs. Randy Orton

These two have been tearing eachother apart since Randy Orton won the Royal Rumble in January. At one time or another, Randy has attacked Vince McMahon, Shane McMahon, Stephanie McMahon, & HHH. Needless to say, it’s been a heated rivalry with everyone involved.

Prediction: Randy Orton will win the Title when at least one of the McMahon’s either turns on HHH or their assistance backfires.

Well, there you have it.

As for me, I’ll be watching the show at a local Movie Theatre. I’ll be posting the results of my predictions shortly after I get home.

The show is this Sunday at 7 PM Eastern on Pay Per View.

Enjoy the show!




Luckily, I’ve been sleeping great since I got sick.

They say that’s one of the keys to getting better when you’re sick. So is drinking lots of water, which I’ve also been doing. By all counts, I’ve been doing the right things, along with taking my pills & puffer. It’s a pain in the ass, but at least the end is near, or so I like to believe.

Last night, I stayed home, played online Poker and watched Wrestling. I’m still very much a Wrestling fan even after all these years,  especially around Wrestlemania time. This year, Wrestlemania 25 takes place in Houston, Texas on April 5th. As per usual, I will be watching the four hour event either from my home or at a Movie Theatre.In the upcoming weeks, I will be posting my annual predictions for the show.

That’s it for today though.

Thanks for reading.

Alright Wrestling Fans, Wrestlemania 24 is over and it was a great show.

Match of the night for me was Ric Flair VS Shawn Michaels. Not only was it a great match, but it was also emotional. So long, Ric Flair and thanks for the memories.

There was a tech problem and we all missed the first ten minutes. Each of us received a Coupon to attend a “Special Event” for free.

Happy Wrestlemania Day, Wrestling Fans

So last night, The Score (TV Sports Channel in Canada) was supposed to air the 2008 WWE Hall Of Fame Ceremony at 11 PM followed by a Wrestlemania Highlights Show from years past.

I set up my PVR (Personal Video Recorder) to record it, so I could watch it today before Wrestlemania. I put it on and the freakin thing recorded Basketball and then recorded WWE Smackdown. Needless to say, I was pissed. I quickly thought of checking YouTube and I found what I needed.

For all those interested, I have posted the induction of the Nature Boy Ric Flair. It’s pretty emotional, but well worth viewing, even if you’re not a Wrestling fan.

Check it out.

and here’s Part Two

Thank god for the Internet.

Enjoy Wrestlemania and I’ll be back shortly after the show (hopefully) and post how accurate I was with my predictions

With nothing else going on right now, I’ve decided to post my predictions for Wrestlemania 24 which airs LIVE on Pay Per View this Sunday (March 30th) at 7 PM Eastern.

Here’s the card for the event. My predictions will be written in bold.

Raw/SmackDown/ECW 24-Man Battle Royal
– Winner gets a ECW Championship shot the night against Chavo Guerrero.
Confirmed Participants:
Raw: Snitsky, Brian Kendrick, Lance Cade, Trevor Murdoch, Hardcore Holly, Cody Rhodes, Val Venis, Hacksaw Jim Duggan

SmackDown: Mark Henry, Chuck Palumbo, The Great Khali, Deuce, Domino, Jesse, Festus, Kane, Jamie Noble, Jimmy Wang Yang, Shannon Moore,
ECW: Elijah Burke, Matt Striker, The Miz, Tommy Dreamer, Kofi Kingston
This match will be shown for free on wwe.com at 6:30 PM. I probably won’t see it because I’ll be on my way to the Movie Theatre for the show. I’m picking Kane to win and go for the Title later that night.

Live On Pay-Per-View:Triple-Threat WWE Championship Match
– Randy Orton (c) vs. John Cena vs. Triple H
Triple H will win the Title here.

WWE World Heavyweight Championship Match
– Edge (c) vs. The Undertaker
Undertaker will defeat Edge to not only win the Title, but remain undefeated at Wrestlemania.
ECW Championship Match
– Chavo Guerrero (c) vs. Raw/SmackDown/ECW Battle Royal Winner
I picked Kane to get the Title show, but somehow Chavo will remain ECW Champion.
Money In The Bank Ladder Match
– Ken Kennedy vs. Chris Jericho vs. Shelton Benjamin vs. Carlito vs. MVP vs. CM Punk vs. John Morrison
A Suitcase will hang above the ring. Inside the Suitcase will contain a Contract for  a Title shot that can be claimed anytime within 365 days following the match. 
This is tough to predict, but my guess will be Ken Kennedy once again.
Career Threatening Match
– Ric Flair vs. Shawn Michaels
This will be a very emotional match for everyone involved, including the fans. If Flair loses, he will be forced to retire and Flair’s Wrestling Career will end after 30+ years. With Flair’s induction into the WWE Hall Of Fame later tonight (11 PM Eastern on USA Network & The Score in Canada. UK — Sunday March 30th, 8 AM on Sky Sports 3) it is expected that his last match will be at Wrestlemania 24. My prediction is that Shawn Michaels will win in what should be a great match.
Raw vs. SmackDown Match
– Umaga vs. Batista
This will be what I refer to as my bathroom break. My prediction is neither one will win and the fans won’t be happy. I expect a rematch down the road between these two juice monkeys.

BunnyMania Lumberjack Match
– Ashley & Maria vs. Beth Phoenix & Melina
Ashley & Maria will win.Belfast Brawl
– Finlay vs. John “Bradshaw” Layfield

Another bathroom break for me. Hopefully I return to see Hornswoggle (a midget leprechaun) return and beat up the millionaire. Wow, I can’t believe I just typed that. Anyways, I pick Finlay to win and he’ll reveal himself as Hornswoggle’s Father. Now you see why I get teased for being a Wrestling fan at 33 years of age.

Big Show vs. Floyd Mayweather

Alright, this is the match everyone supposedly wants to see. Let me break it down for you. Floyd Mayweather is a Boxing Champion that weighs about 150 lbs. I’m not a fan of Boxing, so I’m not fully aware of his skills or background. Big Show stands at over seven feet and weighs over 400 lbs. Common logic and sense would have Big Show beating the crap out of Mayweather. This is Pro Wrestling though and common sense rarely prevails.
I pick Floyd Mayweather to win.

So there you have it. I will post how accurate I was shortly after I return home.

Enjoy the show, Wrestling fans.
