In November of 2012, I sat in the booth just beside the last stool in the photo above on a lunch break with my wife and kids. I told Jessica I was thinking of writing a book about the history of wrestling in Louisville.
She told me to go for it.
In less than two months, I am flying to Las Vegas for the Cauliflower Alley Club reunion to introduce Dr. D David Schultz as he receives the 2019 Male Wrestler Award.
I am incredibly grateful to everyone who has shared a story, purchased a book, opened a door, or helped me in any way during the last six plus years, but I am especially grateful for how my wife and family continue to support me.
I love you, Jessica. Thanks for putting up with all this wrestling crap.
