Don’t look at the future. We drew something awful on it.

    Wow. Talk about your confluences of disparate interests! (Or perhaps not so disparate.)

    This is going to be great.

    Quite the build up just to cover that one time The Rock fought Seven of Nine.

    Seriously though, color me intrigued. πŸ™‚

    Oh wow, now we're getting into my area of expertise. Didn't expect this! I'm always ready to let Hulkamania run wild, BROTHER!

    Let's not forget that both the Big Show and Zeus beamed aboard Enterprise, as well. πŸ™‚

    I'll be sure to tear my shirt in half when I read it.

    Seriously, though, this is an exciting twist for me — I've spent much of my life as a "student of the game" of professional wrestling, and I'm in the process of researching a major writing project on the subject .. so I can't wait to see you …. uh-hmm….grapple with it.

    Well, I'll try not to disappoint. I'm far from an expert on the subject myself, but I did as exhaustive an amount of research as I could under the time constraints I had to work under. Feel free to pitch in over the next few posts.

    And of course, I'll be anxious to see your reaction to the "main event"!

    Wow – this is what I love about your blog, these seeming sideways steps.

    "Seeming" is the key word, isn't it (I hope)?

    By now you should have figured out this wasn't much of a sideways step at all πŸ™‚

    (Though, a request, don't spoil it for those who haven't caught up yet πŸ˜‰ )

    Yeah for sure. The thing that really fascinates me about your journey is that as with a real trip into the wild heavens, apart from some key signposts I have no idea where you will be going! I am enjoying the surprises.
