A Dad Gets His Wrestlemania Party
Spending time with friends is a luxury for this husband, father-of-two, blogger, full-time student, and full-time worker. The number of local pro wrestling fan friends is few, too… and being dads themselves makes it hard to get on the same page. Even though pro wrestling get togethers are hard to come by here in my neck of the woods, I still managed to get together on April Fools Day with my buddies Paul and Freeman and my brother-in-law Michael to watch Wrestlemania XXVIII in the comfort of my own living room. Pizza, wings, soda, and Fruity Pebbles Treats were flowing.
The whole thing was an absolute blast. I can’t say all of the matches were winners, but I found myself enjoying the overall show. Being surrounded by friends certainly helped the atmosphere. There was consensus that the John Cena vs The Rock match was pretty good, although not the best match on the show. The CM Punk match with Chris Jericho was great, too. There was some disagreement about the greatness of the Undertaker vs Triple H (HHH) match, though. Paul thought it was really good, and I think he felt it was the best match on the show. Me… well, I thought that the story that was told was a good one, but not a wrestling story and definitely lacking in what wrestling geeks like to call “ring psychology.”
The quality of each and every match, the fact that Daniel Bryan lost to Sheamus, and the hotness of A.J. are immaterial, though. The important thing is that we had a great time, ate like pigs, and bonded a bit. All of us being dads who take our jobs as such very seriously, that is quite an accomplishment.
