Ok, I Would Not Have Expected That Crossover


Often as a conversation starter I’ve told people, “I can speak equally well on Shakespeare, computers, and pro wrestling.  Pick one.”  Usually merits some strange looks.  But it’s true.

So I get a kick out of the fact that “Triple H”, one of today’s most popular professional wrestlers (who also happens to be married to the daughter of Vince McMahon, the guy who owns most of pro wrestling) is in talks to star in the Thor movie, which is to be directed by Shakespeare demigod Kenneth Brannagh.

That oughtta make for some fun posts. :)

1. My favorite wrestler is Edge. Yes, I know he's usually playing heel, but he's very good at it. I always root for him.

2. Kenneth Branaugh and Triple H should never be uttered in the same sentence. It's just weird.

I've been sick or I'd've commented earlier. One of my sons is also a fan of Shakespeare and pro wrestling. That movie would be a fabulous gift once it is on DVD, but do you have any cross over ideas for now?
