Linglestown Mayor is willing to go to the mat for his constituents.
Every city, town and, yes, village needs a figurehead to fight for truth, justice and the American way, and Linglestown has gone far too long without one.
In the spirit of fun and community spirit, the Linglestown Mayor, portrayed by Gazette publisher B², recently went public at a pro wrestling show held at Sports City on Linglestown Road.
Now the mayor’s epic tale is being leaked out in daily nuggets on Facebook and Twitter. For those of you not into social media, the story will be published on this blog every week. Below are the first seven episodes.
#1 … My life journey began back in the days of black & white TV. Who knew then that the squared circle was in my future.
#2 … This is the unlikely story of how a former 99-pound wussy who excels at non-contact sports linked up with an indie pro wrestling group.
#3 … Taking part in wrestling of any kind was a bad thing for me. I would scream when my bro, a high school wrestler, would put holds on me.
#4 … Like wrestling, football was a no-go. I quit in 7th grade after a giant lineman blocking for a power sweep sent me flying into the air.
#5 … My ESPN moment was scoring 7 points in a h.s. basketball game. But same game coach benched me to give the team a better shot at 100 points.
#6 … Physical contact is a four-letter word to me, & forget about weight lifting. Ping pong, golf, hiking, bowling and square dancing are for me.
#7 … Bicycle racing was a passion in the early 1980s, but I sucked at it because I was afraid to crash – more proof that I’m a pro wussy.
To be continued …
