My Ratings and Thoughts on an Event from the Weekend
I also have to say that something rather horrible happened over the weekend. I am not a huge wrestling fan, but one of the heroes of lots of my male friends died in what they are saying was a double murder-suicide. It was strange, I was at Tom's and he was saying how the wrestler was supposed to win a title belt on Sunday but he was not there because of a family emergency. Then, like two seconds later he said he was not there because he was dead.
Anyways, the wrestler was Chris Benoit. Tom was really sad because he grew up watching Benoit on television. I never understand this stuff, it seems rather hard to believe that this man who always showed that he loved his family and was happy in his career is now believed to have spent the weekend killing his family. Although, there are two other children that apparently were not present. Normally this is not something that I would dwell on, but I spent all day yesterday hearing about it. These things are just crazy, whether they happen to someone you know or complete strangers. I guess it will be a while before all the details are known.

I also wonder if he really did do it, what would that do for his reputation. Will people understand that some people have problems that are undiagnosed and these things happen to the most unlikely people or will everyone that loved him for the great wrestler that he was hate him now...
