Kurt Angle in Japan

kurt angle and angelo villagomezKurt Angle was on my flight from Narita to Detroit. He is really scary looking in person and I have no doubt he could crush me with one hand. Still, he was friendly and was more than happy to pose for a picture. He said he was in Japan for a "show." Who knew that Japan had 35,000 wrestling fans? When I told him that I was going to Washington, DC to witness the monument signing he told me that he met Bill Clinton after winning a gold medal in the 1996 Summer Olympics.

I don't know who he is, but he looks like a fighter and he is an Olympic gold medalist so that's cool.

(Okay, just wikipediad him. I can't stand WWF/WWE!)

BTW, my nephew's Force Unleashed Christmas present arrived last weekend. So far he's really digging it.

it's cool that you met him and that he's a gold medal winner, but did you actually know him from watching wrestling?

We used to watch a lot of wrestling in college. We'd order a few pizzas for Monday Night RAW...
