Ok old heads. How many of you out there in Blogland remember this guy? Heh? That’s right, today’s Firstin retro moment brings you the “GRAND WIZARD of WRESTLING”. Does it get any better than this or what? This guy is from the old days of the WWF. Back then Vince McMahon was the ring announcer. The Grand Wizard was the manager for classic stars such as Sgt.. Slaughter (remember the Cobra Clutch?) and Superstar Billy Graham. Those were the days of Saturday afternoons filled with wrestling and Kung-Fu theater. Nothing could beat a stoic Vince McMahon trying to act like he was interviewing some Olympic Tri-Athlete. Then the Wizard would come out and start ranting and raving how his guy was going to make mincemeat of the opponent this coming Friday night at the Toledo Bowling Alley or whatever venue would have them. “Let me tell you something McMahon…” It was camp theater all the way. It was a much more innocent time, but it was five times the fun. CaptainAmerica

We shall go on to the end. We shall fight in France. We shall fight on the seas and oceans. We shall fight with growing confidence and growing strength in the air. We shall defend our Island, whatever the cost may be. We shall fight on the beaches, we shall fight on the landing grounds, we shall fight in the fields and in the streets, we shall fight in the hills; WE SHALL NEVER SURRENDER! -Winston Churchill

Courage isn't the absence of fear. Rather it's the judgment that something else is more important than fear.
