WWF Superstars of Wrestling May 23rd, 1987

May 23, 1987

From the Convention Center in Anaheim, CA

Your hosts are Bruno Sammartino, Jesse "The Body" Ventura, and Vince McMahon

Tonight, Hulk Hogan will be wrestling in our featured bout as he squares off against Cowboy Bob Orton. We cut it to Mean Gene as he declares this a special Memorial Day edition of Superstars as Hulk Hogan comes on and says the greatest Americans are the ones we will honor today as they dedicated their lives to freedom and Hogan promises to win and honor those veterans today.





Jerry Monti vs. Randy "Macho Man" Savage w Elizabeth

Once again, Savage flips out after being referred to as the "former Intercontinental Champion." Monti surprises Savage with a quick rollup for two as Ricky Steamboat is shown in an insert promo taking about how he will not duck any challengers, including Savage, and will face him anytime. Savage then slams Monti to the mat after tossing him outside and gets the win with a flying elbow smash (1:33).

Thoughts: They certainly teased another Steamboat/Savage match here. Speaking on Savage, I loved how he was full on mental over losing the IC title at this point. He was great.



WWF Update with Craig DeGeorge. They no longer have the newasnchor-style desk as DeGeorge is sitting in what would be called the "Event Center."  The opening music and graphics have changd as well and not for the best, IMO. This week's subject is Superstar Billy Graham as he show a clip of him destroying a jobber as we hear a doctor tell us that Graham's hip is destroyed and will need to be replaced and thus unable to wrestle. However, Graham is shown hobbling on crutches saying that no matter what the surgeons say his career is not over and he will come back. Next week we will get another update. There was no point of even pushing Graham at this point. He did come back for a few months but was practically immobile.



A vignette with Mr. Fuji and Killer Khan airs that shows him in his native land praying as we get creepy closeups of his face while Fuji talks about Khan being devastating and ugly. Khan's push is getting stronger.



Buddy Ryder & Dave Barbie vs. Hillbilly Jim & Outback Jack

Jesse asks if either Jim or Jack can read and write then we get an insert promo of both guys tasting foods from their native land. The crowd seems to be digging this team. Barbie beats on Jack then tags Ryder, who works one of the worst sequences I have ever seen as Ryder's offense is nowhere near Jack, who keeps moving out of position. Hot tag to Jim as he offers a handshake but Ryder kicks him low. Jim then catches him with a boot and drops an elbow. He cartwheels as Vince cackles like an idiot then tags Jack, who gets the win with a bulldogs (2:24). After the match, Jack and Jim do the do-si-do as Vince is in all his glory.

Thoughts: The wrestling in this match was nothing short of embarrassing but the crowd was into Jack & Jim enough for them to traction as a lower card tag team. Jack was one horrendous wrestler.



Okerlund is with Hogan, who hypes up his "Texas Death Match" in Boston against King Harley Race. They did this on the house show circuit for a month or so.



The Fabulous Moolah plugs the WWF Ice Cream Bar and wonders why one wasnt made for her. She was referred to as the WWF Women's Champion as she seems to be back on the scene after an absence of two years.



Jesse Cortez vs. One Man Gang w/ Slick

This is the TV debut of Gang, who destroys Cortez immediately after the bell. Gang looks impressive in beating down Cortez as we get an insert promo from both Slick and Gang, who says that he likes to cripple people. Gang then bulldogs Cortez before putting him away with an elbow drop from the second rope (1:47). The crowd boos Gang after the match then Jesse Ventura breaks the news of Bobby Heenan having a new tag team before they cut away.

Thoughts: Strong debut here for Gang, who was moving around well for a man his size during the match.



Okerlund is with Bobby Heenan, who says that he doesnt care about Hogan and promises that Race will become the champion. Race comes on and promises to leave Hogan laying in a pool of his own blood as there is nothing he cannot and will not do. Heenan was funny when ragging on Okerlund and Race did a fine job during his portion as well.



Replay of Danny Davis costing George "The Animal" Steele is match against Randy Savage from "Saturday Night's Main Event."



The Gladiator vs. Ken Patera

Vince asks Jesse about his report of Heenan having a new tag team but Jesse just talks about how the Heenan Family is going to go after Patera. Billy Jack Haynes is shown in an insert promo putting over Patera as a changed man as Patera slams The Gladiator a few times before putting him away with a bearhug (2:04).

Thoughts: Patera is still not in ring shape. They were trying to sell and promote him as a great guy who was wronged by Heenan but I don't believe too many people were buying that.



Snake Pit with the Heenan Family as his guests. This was the first time the "Snake Pit" was shown on Superstars of Wrestling. Missy Hyatt was going to have the show on Superstars but that did not end up working out. Heenan comes out with just Hercules and Race as he tells us that his other men are unavailable. Jake taunts Heenan about his neck injury as his family warns Patera that he will pay.



Cowboy Bob Orton w/ Mr. Fuji vs. Hulk Hogan

The place goes nuts for Hogan, who comes out holding the American flag. Match starts with Orton backing Hogan into the corner. They go back and forth as Orton pulls up to avoid a punch but ends up getting clotheslined over the top rope. Orton heads back inside and gets whipped into the corner a few times, taking overexaggerated bumps. Hogan hits a slam then a trio of elbows as he plays up to the crowd, who cheer in approval. Hogan hits the Axe Bomber for two then works a front facelock. He hits a corner clothesline as the top rope nearly snaps off as it is barely hanging up. Fuji jumps up on the apron and Orton attacks Hogan from behind. Orton then knees Hogan through the ropes where Fuji hits him with his cane in the throat as we head to commercial. Back from break, Orton beats on Hogan, who is draped over the apron. He targets the back of the neck before applying a side headlock. Orton gets a few nearfalls and roughs up Hogan some more before applying another headlock as the crowd rallies behind Hogan, who fights back. Orton boots Hogan, who dropped his head for a backdrop attempt then gets two with a Roll of the Dice-type move as Jesse astutely notes that the fact the top rope is snapped prevents him from using his finisher, the superplex. Hogan mounts a brief comeback but Orton knocks him down. Orton tries antoher pin attempt but Hogan hulks up then hammers away as the crowd goes nuts. Hogan hits the big boot then the leg drop for the win (8:12, not including the commercial break) **1/2. After the match, Hogan plays up to the crowd as Jesse wonders why Hogan is not honoring him as he is a veteran.

Thoughts: Good match. Not everything in the ring was smooth but it was at a decent pace. Orton spent most of the match on offense and looked the best he has in months. The story of Orton trying to put Hogan away without his finishing move, due to the top rope being broken, was fairly clever. It really was a treat to see Hogan on TV and they were smart making it part of a special holiday show, even if it did come off a bit corny.



Okerlund is with Danny Davis, who will be facing George Steele in Boston. Davis says he is booked to face Steele as some sort of conspiracy as Steele is a dangerous man. Okerlund accuses him of being paranoid as Davis talks about knowing everything there is to be a referee before leaving. Demolition then appears as Smash yells at Okerlund for getting his name wrong. They cut a promo on the Can-Am Connection, their opponents in Boston. Good stuff by Demolition, who were without Fuji here. They were not bad at all on promos.



Next week's featured matchup is the Can-Am Connection vs. The Islanders. We will also see the Brutus Beefcake vs. Dino Bravo match from "Wrestling Challenge." Bobby Heenan is shown and tells us that the Heenan family will be growing as his newest tag team will be revealed next week.



Final Thoughts: Fun show. We got a good main event and the debut of the One Man Gang. There were some negatives as Patera is way over pushed at this point and the Jim & Jack tag match was pathetic. This show also was a reminder that they needed to get away from pushing stale acts and older guys but the overall holiday theme and the long (by TV standards anyway) match featuring Hogan outweighed all of that for this show.



Here is my schedule for the next several days:

Sunday: WWF Wrestling Challenge 5/24/87
Tuesday: WWF Superstars of Wrestling 5/30/87
Thursday: RF Video Shoot Interview with Al Snow, Volume 1
Friday: WWF Wrestling Challenge 5/31/87

  1. Vince's lifelong obsession with hillbillies never fails to amuse me.

  2. Hillbilly Jim and Outback Jack. There's a team for you to have nightmares about.

    ReplyDelete
  3. Wow, I never knew Hogan *ever* wrestled on Superstars. Crazy.

    ReplyDelete
  4. He would wrestle on Superstars 2 more times to my knowledge: 1988 vs. Boris Zhukov, right before his time off to film No Holds Barred, and Dino Bravo leading into Mania VI.

    ReplyDelete
  5. That's how it was with me. Like, if my parents didn't see me watching it, they wouldn't give a shit, and my dad especially couldn't care less about what I watched. But if my mom saw me watching the SImpsons she'd make me turn it off.

  6. I think you're being willfully obtuse

    ReplyDelete
  7. TNA hasn't helped itself, either. I remember someone - Foley, I think - saying that guys like him and Nash were constantly asked by fans where they were or what they were up to WHILE in TNA. Not asked by TNA fans, mind you. But it shows how many casual wrestling fans don't even pay attention to anything that isn't WWE.

    ReplyDelete
  8. America is a seriously backwards ass country.


    It's like the WWE writer's room, too many cooks in the kitchen having a say on what goes on. Which is why we got half the politicians against gay marriage and the President, half of them would gladly send the gays (and the President) to concentration camps if they could, and the other half of the politicians just want to do better for everyone, but everyone keeps overriding each other.

  9. Pillman draws a gun and they cut away to the Karate Fighters tournament?

    This company amazes me sometimes

  10. You mean you don't like CARV ALBERT?!

  11. There's just so many times looking back over old Raws, where they had great angles or moments and they immediately ruin it, usually later in the same show.

    ReplyDelete
  12. You think it's gone? It's not gone, that's the whole point! ITS NEVER GONE!

    ReplyDelete
  13. Kevin Kelly said on the PTB podcast that him calling the gunshots "explosions" wasn't bizarre WWF censorship, but rather him having a complete brainfart and forgetting there's a word to describe a gun shooting a bullet.

    ReplyDelete
  14. My mother has the strangest tastes.


    She loves Agents of Shield but won't bother watching most Marvel movies.

    ReplyDelete
  15. ...if anything, that adds to the realism of the angle.

    ReplyDelete
  16. Yup, so shaken up by the chaos that he's tongue tied.

  17. About to ask why the Caps were starting some Jabroni

  18. WARNING: GRAPHIC IMAGE

    I know we have a lot of animal lovers on the BoD, so the picture at this link will be upsetting, but the link is to a petition to revoke the license of a bitch who killed a cat via bow and arrow and bragged about it on FB.

    Oh yeah... SHE'S A VETERINARIAN. And it wasn't a stray/feral cat at all.

  19. My mom introduced me to Aliens and Terminator, but forced me out of the room when Kate Winslet was naked in Titanic

    (Wow, that was all James Cameron references by accident)

    ReplyDelete
  20. I think with The Simpsons, most of it is hearsay

    ReplyDelete
  21. My mom was the same, maybe because she thought Bart would too impressionable. But how could it be worse than me watching wrestling then telling my sisters to SUCK IT?!

    ReplyDelete
  22. Brite are lucky, just tits all over the Telly.

    ReplyDelete
  23. Regardless of how sick/wrong she is. I never sign a petition relating to internal laws of another country. I don't feel it's my place.

    ReplyDelete
  24. Fair enough

    ReplyDelete
  25. We sent you our biggest pair of tits. Piers Moron & Simon Cowell

    ReplyDelete
  26. Grubauer seems good in the few times I've seen him, but Holtby is obvious a damn good NHL goalie at this point.

    ReplyDelete
  27. ECW's way of shedding the Tazmaniac was neat. Joey Style has a special guest "mystery partner" named Peter Senercia, a judo and grappling expert from New York, with him in the booth to explain the holds and strategies in a Guerrero/Malenko match, and then after the match Style says, "My guest is Peter Sernecia...and you know him, as TAZ." Cue angry midget with a newly shaven head and no more caveman getup.

    ReplyDelete
  28. It's kind of funny and ironic of all the various athletes of questionable character...Thabo Sefolosha, a Swiss, is the guy who has a bad end with cops.


    Hawks are not winning the East without him.

    ReplyDelete
  33. Fat, Ugly Inner-City SweathogApril 17, 2015 at 5:16 PM

    1, 2, and 3 were....so the franchise is basically batting .500. Although I seriously have high expectations with Abrams in charge. I never liked Star Trek, but the last two movies were really cool

    ReplyDelete
  34. Impact should start featuring celebrity guest hosts. They can probably get Chocolate Rain guy, or Double Rainbow guy

    ReplyDelete
  35. Fat, Ugly Inner-City SweathogApril 17, 2015 at 5:18 PM

  37. Fat, Ugly Inner-City SweathogApril 17, 2015 at 5:20 PM

    All joking aside, I think Cena vs. HHH has one more money match left, with the right build.

    ReplyDelete
  38. Islanders 1. Aww yeah!

    ReplyDelete
  39. I had no idea they had no alimony in Texas. For some reason that just completely blew my mind.

  40. ROCK-em SOCK-em Robot!!!!April 17, 2015 at 5:22 PM

    I feel the exact opposite. I love voting on petitions regarding laws for other countries that I don't understand the culture of, yet could care less about my own.

    AMERICA! FUCK YEAH!

  41. What About Bob(by Lashley)?

    ReplyDelete
  42. Fat, Ugly Inner-City SweathogApril 17, 2015 at 5:23 PM

    Teri Hatcher can still get it, but I agree.


    How is Kate Upton not a Bond girl?

    ReplyDelete
  43. Mike Green allows a 2 on 1 which the Islanders score. And now he takes a high-sticking.


    Awesome.

    ReplyDelete
  44. He's coming again to save the motherfucking day, yeah.

    ReplyDelete
  45. Every time TNA does a house show in my area, I never hear about it until afterward. Not that I'd go, but I should at least hear about it in various media

    ReplyDelete
  46. ROCK-em SOCK-em Robot!!!!April 17, 2015 at 5:25 PM

    U! S! A! U! S! A!

    ReplyDelete
  47. Fat, Ugly Inner-City SweathogApril 17, 2015 at 5:25 PM

    Yeah, I think Hogan needed to be gone early in the tournament so that focus would be on Macho.

    ReplyDelete
  48. Fat, Ugly Inner-City SweathogApril 17, 2015 at 5:26 PM

    Yeah, I agree.

    ReplyDelete
  49. I mean, out of all the animated sitcoms out there, I felt it was the most family-oriented. The only thing I can think of that was questionable about that show was the Itchy and Scratchy stuff.

    ReplyDelete
  50. So apart from the Pillman gun angle this Raw, is forgettable at best.
    Goldust vs Barry Windham in the period when neither was any good in the ring
    The Sultan vs The Pug in a 5 minute match whilst the crowd craps over it.
    HBK/Sid in a debate
    Fake Razor vs Mero in a match which seemed designed to not distract from the Pillman storyline.

    Has Scott ever done a rant on this show?

    ReplyDelete
  51. Fat, Ugly Inner-City SweathogApril 17, 2015 at 5:26 PM

    Yeah, I dig this. Hogan vs. BamBam back then would have been a really fun feud

    ReplyDelete
  52. Fat, Ugly Inner-City SweathogApril 17, 2015 at 5:27 PM

    Maybe Andre wins the 20-Man battle royale?

    ReplyDelete
  53. Shit, guys like Goldberg, Hogan, Sting, Hall, and Nash got paid for a whole year after WCW closed to do absolutely nothing

    ReplyDelete
  54. What goes bankrupt first: TNA or Greece?

    ReplyDelete
  55. He's no Tom Mcgee.

    ReplyDelete
  56. TNA should change their name to IOU.

    ReplyDelete
  57. No, they saw Daniel Bryan won the WWE title and was wildly popular, so they put the belt on the guy who looked the most like him

    ReplyDelete
  58. Impact's Obsoleat Universe

    ReplyDelete
  59. TNA will hock the belt and use an old bowling trophy from the Salvation Army.

    ReplyDelete
  60. AJ has said TNA's biggest problem was that they had no clue how to promote how's outside Orlando, as well.

    ReplyDelete
  61. Infringing On Ur financial well being.

    ReplyDelete
  62. By far, my favorite TNA/WWE moment is Christian being told he had to go do their anniversary thing in exchange for TNA letting WWE use Flair for the 4 Horsemen HOF induction and Christian going with gritted teeth, staying as long as it took to do it, barely changing out of the clothes he flew in and bailing right after.

    Like he was afraid he was gonna catch Impactitis if he spent an extra minute there.

    ReplyDelete
  63. Christian appeared on TNA programming after leaving? Literally had no idea this happened.

    ReplyDelete
  64. Also, Beer Money to NXT PLEASE! I want some rugged old school heels beating the shit out of Enzo and Cass to make men out of them!

    ReplyDelete
  65. I always thought that was weird because TNA protected Christian for the most part and figured Christian was well liked in TNA.

    ReplyDelete
  66. WWE never making a move on Roode is a complete mystery to me because he seems like the type of guy WWE likes to push.

    ReplyDelete
  67. Maybe if it were Hunter's last match, but like Fritz Von Erich, Verne Gagne, and his father-in-law before him, Hunter will be wrestling well into his later years. It's what promoter-wrestlers do!

    ReplyDelete
  68. "Yep Mode" Abeyance Brown ©April 17, 2015 at 6:01 PM

    Slamaversery 2012, it was a very weird moment.

    ReplyDelete
  69. The sad thing is that Christian was one of the few wrestlers that TNA did well with. I kind of feel he was a bit douchey about the whole thing, but I think he may have been more irritated at being used as a pawn to get Flair into the HOF than any real ill will toward TNA.

    ReplyDelete
  70. I think Beer Money would be great for both nxt & WWE's tag divisions. Especially, as I said, in helping flesh out Enzo and Cass. I like those 2, and eagerly await them defeating Blake & Murphy, but I wanna see them go to war, ya know?

    ReplyDelete
  71. My father took me to just about every major horror movie of the late 70's and early 80's from Amityville Horror to the Shining and Prom Night.

    ReplyDelete
  72. Yeah Texas is a different country almost lol. Debra got paid for sure but it would be a lump sum. I bet Hogan is kicking himself for not living there!

    ReplyDelete
  73. Even better.. without wrestling PPV might not have been as big as it became. I still remember when most of the big Boxing matches were on HBO, Showtime and even ABC Sports.

    ReplyDelete
  74. Fuck that Spider-Man show (which I loved back in 1977).

    ReplyDelete
  75. He was unsigned by TNA the weekend of Wrestlemania 28 -- that could have been an awesome debut.

    ReplyDelete
  76. You know Vince would take that shut out on Christian though, even though Christian had nothing to do with it.

    ReplyDelete
  77. You know what would be awesome? A bored Raw crowd chanting "TNA!"

    ReplyDelete
  78. That's a good (and horrible) thought -- maybe Christian thought it was in his best interest not to look too happy to be there.

    ReplyDelete
  79. Well, clearly chanting for the people they actually WANT to be in the main event isn't working.

    ReplyDelete
  80. Actually, I'd go (at least back when people I wanted to see were there).


    I always heard their house shows were a lot of fun. You know, those things where they actually let their wrestlers WRESTLE and meet with fans.

    But you're right. I can't think of when I actually heard of one in my area, despite knowing they come here.

    ReplyDelete
  81. This is one I find to be absolute bullshit.


    TNA's existence doesn't block anyone from doing anything.


    You might not like them. That's fine. But don't try to justify not liking them with stupid logic about them blocking other Feds.


    In that case, why not be mad at WWE for the same thing? Hell, their existence is blocking all other feds from being #1. The bastards!!!

    ReplyDelete
  82. ROCK-em SOCK-em Robot!!!!April 17, 2015 at 7:51 PM

    WWE is putting out a commercially successful product.

    TNA fails on both a commercial and critical level. This inability to do anything despite network banking poisons the market for any other promotions that could possibly get cable deals. Do you think Spike wants anything to do with wrestling ever again? Other companies see this shit and decide not to do business with an entire industry instead of one company.

    ReplyDelete
  83. You mean as opposed to ROH and Lucha Underground, right? I mean both of them have TV deals, but the rest of it is all TNA's fault.


    You can hate TNA. It's OK. But this is still a bullshit reason, and not a single person has adequately explained that TNA is stopping other feds from getting TV deals. It's moronic.

    ReplyDelete
  84. That's just because Bret is too hurt/old to carry him to greatness. . . .

    ReplyDelete
  85. He pulled jobber duty on a few episodes of HeAT and Velocity in 2003.

    ReplyDelete
  86. Belee_Matt!_INDEED!!!April 17, 2015 at 9:00 PM

    Citation please.

    ReplyDelete
  87. Didn't know about the Brovo one.

    ReplyDelete
  88. Neat little match where an apparent shoot incident made the match more interesting and played the factor of the dude's finisher being declared null and void.

    ReplyDelete
  89. But he wrestled on the show prior to superstars when Birndorff turned on him

    ReplyDelete
  90. Here is what the islanders had to say about their match next week: insert of the Islanders laughing and pointing and laughing.

    ReplyDelete
  91. Where were all these "wrestling fans"

    When EC3 and Spud were having the match of their careers last month?

    When Lashley was tearing through the roster putting on a ***+ matches every week?

    When The Wolves, Hardys and team 3D had a best of five series that was wowing audiences?

    When Gail Kim and Havok headlined Impact cause their feud was built to be a mainevent?


    I make no apologies for TNA crap business management, or for what hogan and russo did a few years ago, but i'm more and more convinced that rspw must be populated by a mix of kiddies and MNW veterans who refuse to give TNA credit for their on screen product and gleefully jump in when things go bad backstage because they're desperate to have a hate figure in wrestling?

    They could ( and have been) putting on great shows, and if you disagree, then read the reviews by Tommy, who was noticeably not a fan of the product last year, but has been giving them their due in his reviews on this site. As have other serious Wrestling journalists. But you choose to ignore that because "I've been burned before" .

    I dunno it just feels utterly bizarre. Once again, yeah TNA management is crap, but why the 100+ posts for bad news, yet the good stuff is ignored?

    ReplyDelete
  92. Vince thinks he's related to Rick Rude and holds a grudge. I just made that up.

    ReplyDelete
  93. At least it would be different.

    ReplyDelete
  94. No, but I do see similarities between Hillary Clinton and Stephanie McMahon.

    ReplyDelete
  95. Because that worked for Prince Iukea

    ReplyDelete
  96. If Hogan hadn't used the fake nWo music and had been champ - TNA would be compreive.

    ReplyDelete
  97. My favourite movie of all time. I'm such a big Dirty Work nerd, I took a tour of the Toronto using Dirty Work locations

    ReplyDelete
  98. Not to mention the fans who knew they were in TNA but declared them crap, but as soon as they leave become "big fans".

    ReplyDelete
  99. You're missing out on a beautiful piece of life, my friend

    ReplyDelete
  100. Rocky Maivia was in no way popular in 1997, when WCW ran the Iaukea experiment. Bischoff was just trolling.

    ReplyDelete
  101. This is from around the time I started watching wrestling. I remember I really was impressed by Superstar Billy Graham. Lot of charisma , cool outfit and entrance theme. Too bad je couldn't back that up in the ring anore. Looking back know he indeed was quite immobile. Back then I really didn't notice as a kid....

    ReplyDelete
  102. In terms of character evolution, HHH's has been rock-solid. Starts as a Blueblood until he meets Perfect. He takes on Perfect's traits as a cocky asshole. This continues until he meets Shawn Michaels, and becomes a degenerate. When Shawn leaves, HHH takes charge until he realises there's more money to be made being a corporate lackey. And when Taker/Vince leave in July 1999, HHH takes their spot and never looks back.

    ReplyDelete
  103. My folks showed me Batman Returns when I was a kid, a weirdly sexual film with some creepy as shit stuff. That was awesome.

    ReplyDelete
  104. Because it's more fun to rag on something than it is to defend it?

    ReplyDelete
  105. I'm not going three months or so back and searching. You can if you want! The one I remember for sure was cbreezy

    ReplyDelete
  106. yeah you're probably right. But why does TNA get that treatment? They've got a great show.

    ReplyDelete
  107. I remember this being on and what a big deal it was for Hogan to appear on Superstars, as it was such a rare thing.

    ReplyDelete
  108. Yeah he's got a great look. I can see why they don't like Storm but Roode has the look that they would love. Too old now though.

    ReplyDelete
  109. I wonder how many dark matches he did for them? I think he took on Race in a dark match during the following week of tapings. I know of a wrestling challenge match in early April/May of Hogan going up against Macho Man - it was actually a decent little match and even teased a split between Savage and Liz. That dark match offically aired on the 1987 release of the history of the world heavyweight championship.

    ReplyDelete
  110. <---------- Monday Night War Veteran

    ReplyDelete
  111. The company lost me with Monty Brown. . . period.

    ReplyDelete
  112. He also wrestled Moondog Spot on Championship Wrestling too

    ReplyDelete
  113. It's infinitely less risky than driving to the grocery store, but everyone has their irrational fears I guess.

    ReplyDelete
  114. Yeah....if my car breaks down on my easy to the grocery, I'll be fine. If the ship has problems? Not like I can just get off and catch a cab.
