    - FrontPage Magazine - - Muslim Blood SportsPosted By Ari Lieberman On July 11, 2013 @ 12:30 am In Daily Mailer,FrontPage | 2 Comments In the civilized world, it is universally recognized and axiomatic that sport, whether tennis, judo or boxing, transcends politics. Sure the fans may root for the home team and wish to see their nationals triumph, but for the sportsmen and women involved in the match, it is a matter of love of the game, testing the limits of one’s own abilities, and respect for the opposing player’s talents. Hence, boxers for example, may pummel each...

    IOC cuts wrestling from 2020 Olympics Maggie Hendricks In a shocking move, the International Olympic Committee voted to drop wrestling from its schedule for the 2020 Games. The unexpected decision was made via secret ballot during a Tuesday meeting in Lausanne, Switzerland where officials were discussing ways to "streamline" the Olympics. Though many assumed modern pentathlon would get the boot, the committee instead decided to eliminate wrestling, which has roots in the ancient Greece games and has been a part of every modern Olympics since they began in 1896. The vote was completed over several rounds and the final totals...

    MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — Jacob Volkmann admits he’s trying to make a name for himself as a fighter. The problem is it’s getting him in trouble at his other job. Following a fight last Friday, the 31-year old White Bear Lake man was being interviewed by Joe Rogan. Volkmann told Rogan that President Obama should call him to schedule a “glass-ectomy.” Rogan then asked what a “glass-ectomy” is. “A glass-ectomy is when you cut your bellybutton out and put a piece of glass in there so when you have your head up your butt you can see where you’re going.” Volkmann...

    Wrestling, a Pennsylvania passion By Frank Fitzpatrick Inquirer Staff Writer First in an occasional series LOCK HAVEN, Pa. - Its light-aircraft plant and nearby paper mill shuttered, its Victorian downtown festooned with silk-screened photos of Clinton County's war veterans, its tallest structures a Civil War monument and a twin-spired courthouse built in 1869, Lock Haven survives more on memory than hope. The jobs in this community 23 miles southwest of Williamsport have disappeared the way timber once vanished from surrounding forests. More of the city's 9,000-plus residents - down from 11,748 in 1960 - now work in social services, health...

    I have noticed more and more lately that the current political situation in our country very much resembles the old timey, pre-McMahon "professional rasslin'. I may have even mentioned it to some of you in PM's. But now it's getting to where the resemblance is no longer funny. It's downright scary. As an old-time "mark," kindly allow me to point out the similarities. In old-time "rasslin," there were two kinds of wrestlers: the "babyfaces" (or simply "faces") who followed the rules and acted like role models, and the "heels" who not only cheated but insulted the fans and were downright...

    osh 02/10/2006 11:54 am Newspaper editors rarely ask potential reporters if they’re up on the latest pro wrestling storylines. After a recent story in the Boca Raton News, maybe they should. The paper reported on the alleged misconduct by World Wrestling Entertainment Chairman Vince McMahon, who has been accused by a tanning salon employee of groping her and trying to kiss her late last month in Florida. But the final line of the story claimed that McMahon was “reportedly” seeking a divorce from his wife, Linda McMahon, the CEO of WWE. A Press search showed no recent reports about...

    WWE's latest batch of writers is said to continue in the trend of having absolutely no wrestling experience. One of the new female writers, who has a history with Nickelodeon, actually asked John Bradshaw Layfield how the wrestlers keep the fake blood flowing from their heads. What's even worse is that WWE has Court Bauer, one of the few writers with extensive knowledge, writing WWE Velocity. Sources blame Stephanie McMahon for moving WWE as far away from "pure wrestling" as possible. She was said to have loved this week's RAW as it had a large quotient of off-beat entertainment. -...
