    Ken, there is a Facebook protest taking place tomorrow to shed some light on it, what you need to do is take a photo of yourself in your singlet and post it on your Facebook page, good luck.

    The sport of wrestling is down -22% in participation over the past year, and is down -41% over the past 3 years. In 2011 there wre 1.97M particpants vs 3.3M in 2008. I'd imagine this decline was seen elsewhere and they were cutting those with diminishing interest levels and adding those that were growing. For reference, Field Hockey has 1.14M participants in 2011 - still south of wrestling, but flat over a 3yr period.

    Probably will be replaced by shuffleboard.

    Wrestling and boxing are the only sport that comes to mind man vs man.
    Hebrews 11:3 By faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that the things which are seen were not made of things which are visible.

    What if all we have today is what we gave thanks for yesterday?
