I always loved Pink’s music and voice but lately I haven’t followed her career forcefully so it was a great surprise to see her acrobat performance in this video. WOW, Great job! Plus a reason why I would like to see a Pink live concert.

Happy birthday beautiful #WilsonBethel !
In 2013 ByeAlex represented Hungary on ESC 2013 and yesterday on our national final, in “A dal 2014” he performed a “symphonic version” of “Kedvesem”. What a great cover!!
Yesterday in the national final, “A Dal 2014”, Hungary voted our song, and András Kállay-Saunders with his song “Running” will represent us in Coppenhagen on ESC 2014. I think it was a hard competition but I am really happy for him.
Good luck, Andris!
I’M WITH CM PUNK. #GTSmovement
Congratulation to Jared and his actor partner Matthew McConaughey to the nomination and I hope they will win this prestigeous award. Master piece of method acting!
Meeting Mae Young
I went to WWE Axxess in 2011, with high hopes to catch a few of my favorite superstars. One of the main attractions for me, Dolph Ziggler, canceled, which really bummed me out. I got to meet Sin Cara, the Usos, Tyson Kidd, Hornswoggle, Wendy Richter, and this beautiful lady above, the great Mae Young.
When Mae first took to the stage, I was in awe. Here was a lady I’d been watching for years, through various tapes, online videos, and DVD’s. This crazy old bitch was nuts, someone I really hope to be anything like when I’m in my later years. If Mae appears on TV, I usually have tears in my eyes, just stoked to see someone who still loves the sport doing what she’s always known.
Mae didn’t have much of a line, which really bothered me. Her table was off to the side of the rest of the action at a special Legends table, along with Wendy Richter. When I finally got up to the stage, I looked to my ex and said “I’m going to cry.” I walked up to Mae, shook her hand, and leaned down to talk to her. Since she’s hard of hearing, I had to say this quite loudly- loud enough for the line to hear me. I don’t remember if all of this is verbatim, so I’m paraphrasing.
"Mae, I’ve been a fan of yours for about 13 years. You’re my favorite lady wrestler to see on TV, because I know you love what you’re doing. On your 100th birthday, I’ll be there live to see you wrestle, because you’re the best. No other woman in pro wrestling has my respect like you do. I love you, Mae. Thank you for everything."
Looking down at her, she had these big crocodile tears welling up in her eyes. She smiled huge as soon as I started talking, and shook her head along with what I was saying. When I finished, she said “Thank you very much for the compliment. I’m glad you know who I am!” I said “You’re the great Mae Young! You’re the best!” She laughed and a tear rolled down her cheek. She said “I WILL wrestle on my 100th birthday, and you better be there.” I smiled huge, tears in my eyes, and said “I will be. I promise.”
She signed my autograph mat really small, so I said “You know for someone who’s nearsighted, you sure do write small!” She looked up and gave me a little “oh shut up” wave with a smile. I asked if I could take a picture kissing her hand, and she said that was fine. I really wanted to take a picture kissing Mae herself, but I didn’t have the balls to ask. This picture is one of my favorite photos of all-time, and this moment is one that I will never forget.
God, even looking back at this tears me up. I’m so proud of this day, and so happy that I had the pleasure.
It’s so touching, I could not prevent my tears from falling.
the tears that are falling right now….
Such a nice story about this wonderful lady. Thank you very much for sharing it!!
