I know it’s been forever, but can I just say thank you? This right here is a masterpiece and expresses every word true about this detectable nectar. I buy up to 4 large cups of this at a time to keep in the fridge as I get thirsty (yay mc d’s $1 any size). I also buy the juice boxes to hold me over in case I run out.

I love the photo of Johnny at his desk, the old school haliburton case says it all. I used to see crews of wrestlers back in the late 70's and 80's and every one of them had a silver haliburton briefcase.

Great, great stuff. Back in the days when I kinda knew that pro wrestling was predetermined but kinda still wanted to believe, Johnny Rodz was one of the few guys who would show up on the Saturday afternoon wrestling shows (the ones where it was almost entirely squash matches) and make me think, “Man, he could win.”

I’ll add to the rest of the great read comments. I’m old enough to remember when Johnny Rodz wrestled and saw him live back in 1984. Great work, Ross.
