A Sydney woman today made an emotional plea on her Facebook wall, urging people to stay strong following the terror attack in her “spiritual homeland”, New York City, where eight people were killed and eleven injured when a man intentionally drove a truck onto a bike path.
Even though the woman only visited the city for two days in 2007, and never left Times Square, she constantly referred to New York as “my city”.
“My heart goes out to all my amazing people in NYC,” the post began. “But we are strong, and I know firsthand that if you can make it there, you can make it anywhere.”
The woman further wrote that although at times she gets lost in the hustle of making it big, tragedies like this keep her grounded so she doesn’t forget who she is or where she came from, (ed’s note: Rose Bay) urging everyone to “stay real”.
The 10,000-word Facebook essay also included photos of her looking amazing in NYC while the friend she posed beside looked rubbish.
Professional wrestling, once thought to be a kind of performance art combining athletics with theatrics, is a real sport, a bullet-proof CSIRO report has confirmed.
Sydney wrestler Ben Hurt said he was surprised by the report’s findings, but only because he hadn’t realised people thought what he did for a living was fake.
“This sure helps explain a few things,” he said. “I nearly ended it all after the crowd cheered for my then-best friend when he beat me half to death with a chair and then announced he was sleeping with my wife.”
Local wrestler Big Potato agreed that the assumptions behind the report were the most surprising thing about it.
“I can’t believe people thought wrestling had predetermined outcomes like boxing,” he said. “Hopefully this will bring in more crowds so some of us, like The Undertaker, The Repo Man and Doink the Clown won’t have to work second jobs to make ends meet.”
There is now a push to have professional wrestling in the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games.
