The voice of wrestling's business in The Hamilton Ave Journal
On hiatus pioneer of truth with In Defense Of...
Retired writer/editor of THE most positive article in the IWC: Hidden Highlights
Occasional DVD and Video Game reviewer
I once told off a representative of the EU Commission for saying Americans have singular identities. What?! It is an insult!
I have visited 9 countries (Newest Country: Australia - Added November 17, 2008) and 39 states/territories (Newest State/Territory: Tennessee - Added June 2, 2008). The rest you can find out from my writing... or just asking me.

I'd just like to take some time to point out some of the times my sign has made it on TV thanks to all of you:
And we're rolling... - 04.07.2007
I created a search that would allow you to see all of my victories in Fact or Fiction as I keep getting invited on. As of this date, I have seven glorious victories.
And I'll be in Fact or Fiction again this week, so be sure to watch me maul Jeff Small!

Despite what my last blog says, I guess I will use this forum for a quick message. Due to my transition of job and home, I'll be taking a little hiatus from In Defense Of.... You can still catch me with JT every Sunday in Hidden Highlights, but for now you'll just have to enjoy the IDO archives. Once I start to get more settled and understand my new schedule, I'll get back on the IDO bandwagon. As mentioned in Issue #52, a single edition of IDO can take anywhere from 6-18 hours. I don't have the time nor concentration at the moment, so it's better to put the project on hold.
And no, I'm not taking the hiatus because I lost a case. As a little preview, I won the Chyna Winning the Intercontinental Championship case with 74.6% of vote! That's twenty-nine in a row!
Perhaps I will use this time to answer all those e-mails. There's only about, oh, 800 of them. This could take a while...
And we're rolling... - 01.01.2006
You already get two articles a week from me and you want more?!?! You insatiable bastards!
No, no, you can get all the JP you need from my legitimate articles, e-mail responses, and (rare) replies on the message boards, thank you very much.
