Hulk Hogan

Hulk Hogan...
...surely you remember the guy even if you aren't a wrestling fan...

Star of such great Hollywood fare as Suburban Commando,Mister Nanny,Santa With Muscles,
...and of course, 3 Ninjas High Noon at Mega Mountain.Each of these films an equal of Citizen Kane, and Hogan himself this generation's Olivier.

Well, as you are by now more than well aware, mister Hogan, is in the midst of divorce proceedings. " Kind of shocked " was how Hogan first described the news of impending divorce, when told that Linda, his wife of 24 years, had filed the papers earlier that day. "You caught me off guard. My wife has been in California for about three weeks," Hogan was quoted as saying. "Holy smokes. Wow, you just knocked the bottom out of me."There were stories at the time, that the divorce itself may have be a ruse, to protect some of Hogan's fortune from a pending civil suit in relation to his son Nick's motor vehicle accident...
But that isn't what I want to talk about...

Wrestling is a business that can tear families apart. The constant pressure to perform, the life on the road, the travel, the wear and tear on the mind and the body, and so much more adding to the regular relationship pressures. It takes a lot to keep a marriage going in this biz.

The Hogans have worn it all for almost 25 years, and I for one, hope they can work it out. After all, they're a cute bunch...and I hope to date his daughter one day.

Here's todays toon...
