First, don't know if you're a big fan of Bruce Springsteen, but my friends and I run www.legendsofspringsteen.com and would love a plug to get us some more traffic. Thanks!
Secondly, I was at No Way Out on Sunday, and even though it wasn't really a good ppv for the most part I still had fun with friends and watching it live. Having grown up in the NYC area I've been to a few ppvs before, and countless raws, smackdowns, house shows etc. Basically if it took place at MSG or the Meadowlands from 1994-2005 there's a fairly good chance I was there. But this Sunday, on the bus ride home, I saw something I never saw before that really bothered me. Grown men, who were almost certainly drunk, yelling and cursing at kids who were John Cena fans. Has the Cena-bashing gone too far? I'm not a huge Cena fan, and I'd love to see something to freshen up his character. But I can't imagine even the smarkiest fans thinking this is acceptable. Personally, if that happened to me as a kid I know my parents would have never taken me to a live event again. And I'm sure some of these kids parents feel that way. This could be a huge problem for the WWE, if they're trying to market towards kids but parents don't think it's a safe environment for kids. Has anyone else heard of such actions, or was this hopefully a one time thing? Thought it might get some conversation going on the blog.
Thanks for all the hours of entertainment reading your material.
I haven't bought a Springsteen album since the Human Touch/Lucky Town combo in 91 (plus Greatest Hits, I guess), but I'd count myself as a fan, yeah.
