PERSPECTIVE

****

Between the boxing, wrestling, and refereeing, I started making a good buck, but it was work. I was doing fine until along came a 340-pound wrestler named Cowboy Rocky Lee. I was down on the canvas when he accidentally stepped on my chest. I felt a sharp pain. When they examined me they found that Rocky had cracked one of my ribs and the rib had damaged some of my heart muscles. I said to myself, “Oh shit. There goes that good dollar.”
