A Night Out With My Boy!

Just got back from a night out with Steven. We decided to take in some high quality entertainment, WWE Wrestling :-)

We purchased tickets about 6 weeks ago, and it was all Steven could talk about! He was very excited because this was a rare "supershow" where both RAW ( the Monday night cable show) and Smackdown( the UPN network show) were being taped on one night. So all of the superstars would be here tonight.

About a hour before we were about to leave, it was announced that Eddie Guerrero was found dead in his hotel room. 38 years old. He had battled drug and alcohol problems, but had been sober for 4 years. No cause of death has been announced , but I am sure its a heart related issue. Just a hunch.

The night became a much more somber event. It was filled with tributes to Eddie and it was pretty emotional to see these huge men cry. It was a good learning moment for Steven. Who would have thought I would have had such a lesson taught to a 10 year old at a wrestling event. One never knows when or where they will pop up. I was glad to be there.
