    Dear Lord I did not expect to see the de Vere theory mentioned here. Can we stay on topic. (The Roland Emmerich film is terrible.)

    The Classic Arenas

    There are so many venues to cover. It's a neat topic. The three notable Canadian venues do suffer from a paucity of extant footage, but Toronto, Montreal and Calgary all have a long history of professional wrestling being held in those cities. The Forum and Maple Leaf Gardens are gone now of course but as Kelly mentioned the Victoria Pavilion still stands (and it's the one venue of the three I've not been to so I can still fix that!).

    Greatest Canadian Wrestler

    The more I look at the list of candidates, the more I think my top ten list would have to have earlier stars on it: Whipper Watson, Gene Kiniski, Yvon Robert - whom in particular is a tremendous regional star with a lot of cultural importance - as well as big modern stars on it. I don't think I'd still vote Bret Hart as number one though.

    Earl McCready probably should be considered on a list like this.

    RIP Jacques Rougeau Sr

    I was so happy to find that footage last year. A life well-lived by all accounts.

    Holy Grails

    I hope to help with CBC research going forward, as Mr. Nelson well knows. A fun way to put research skills to use. Encore + is a worthwhile resource, for sure.

    Comic books and Manga Thread

    Okay, fair enough. I'll definitely find a way to check that out.

    That's like saying you've heard Watchmen is good. Or Sandman. Or <insert favourite title>. Doom Patrol is superb.

    Greatest Match Ever Project

    Jumbo only had seven matches? That's ... interesting.
  10. Visited Notre Dame three times in the past. Happy memories. Today is indeed surreal. This will come off as a mere platitude, but I am glad no loss of life is being reported, and that the fire was supposedly caused by an accident, rather than malice.

    I'm pretty sure you were still breathing but I was likewise nearly comatose.

    What was the match length? Bring on the main event already.

    Much much more whisky.

    I need more whisky.
