This newspaper clipping, courtesy of Mark Eastridge and Dick Bourne, saddens and angers me in that a JIM CROCKETT PRMOTIONS wrestling show came to my home town and I didn't go.
Fifty-three years out, I don't know if I wasn't aware of its happening or I just couldn't get there. I was a mere thirteen at the time.
Maybe I was grounded as punishment for some dastardly deed I had perpetrated.
Whichever, it's one that got away.
