The reality is when this game comes out, you’ll get to see me in the ring against new guys or guys like The Undertaker who you never saw me get in the ring with. As a father, a 49 year old, an old timer, it’s an honor to be in the game. It also makes me a great dad since it’s pretty cool for a ten year old”Would he step back in the ring?“I do muay thai five days a week and wrestling pales in comparison to getting kicked in the face and thrown around like that five days a week. I’m a little lighter than I used to be but trust me, I can still bring the pain….Brock.”Does he have fond memories of his match with The Rock back in 2003?“Yeah definitely. I wish he would’ve let me do a bit more physical stuff or let me to a bit more to him but at the end of the day, you gotta keep your face pretty if you’re gonna be the Hollywood guy so I completely understand that but looking back on it, the fact that they would put me in the ring with him, first, that’s a huge honor so if I look back at some of the things I did back then, I sit in awe that I was in that position and they let it happen.”Views on Conor McGregor’s comments on pro wrestlers in WWE:“First and foremost he’s trying to get some publicity. All I can say, is when I was in the business back in the day, if he had said that, there were a number of guys leaving him in a pool of blood because some of the guys that I tangled with, guys who taught me what I know, were not guys to mess around with and I personally believe there’s some guys around now who could do it but they’ve just chosen professional wrestling to be their endeavour. Just because they’re not doing it, doesn’t mean they couldn’t be good at it.”You can check out the full interview with Goldberg below. So, just to be clear. We of the IWC hate part time wrestlers that get opportunities the main roster talent should, but we are all totally cool with the 13 year retired Bill Goldberg coming in for one match, slaying The Beast, and then .ing off back to retirement, as opposed to giving the rub to someone who could actually USE it?

Plenty of Christmas spirit to explore in Clark County Portland

first_imgAll together now! On the first day of Christmas, my true love gave to me: A pint of “Christmas Bomb!” Imperial Stout and a gift card for 11 more special cask taps at Northwood Public House, 1401 S.E. Rasmussen Blvd. in Battle Ground.Northwood is celebrating, for the fourth year running, what it calls “The Twelve Beers of Christmas.” Twelve rare brews have come to Northwood’s taps from far, near and everywhere in between. Far means Oklahoma (that’s the “Bomb!,” a high-gravity stout with cinnamon and spices, from Prairie Artisan Ales) and even the north of England (a creamy, slightly fruity “Winter Welcome” ale from the historic Samuel Smith Old Brewery in Yorkshire, founded in 1758). Near means Hazel Dell (a black currant sour from Brothers Cascadia) and Northwood’s own on-site brewing operation, Little Dipper (“Old Sourpuss,” which is about as sour as anybody’s allowed to get during this season of good cheer).These rarities are limited and first-come-first-serve, so you probably don’t want to hesitate. Northwood is also selling a total of 50 “Twelve Beers” cards, which last all year long (Christmas Eve 2018 to Christmas Eve 2019) and entitle the bearer to 12 standard pours of any beer on tap at Northwood. It’s a potential value of more than $120, available for $75.That’s by way of saying, the holiday season is only over when you decide it’s over. Why decide it’s ever over?Last-minute lookingThat is, unless you’re looking forward to getting it over with. There’s just that little matter of gifts in the way. If panic about presents has set in, try the Dec. 22 holiday market at the Vancouver Elks Lodge, 11605 S.E. McGillivray Blvd. From 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., the market will feature holiday decor, handmade artworks, beauty products, comics, CDs, DVDs and more.last_img read more

Acting Pm Sports Minister Tourism Meet With Fifa Officials Ahead Of 2017

first_imgFacebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsAppNassau, 29 Nov 2015 – Two of the top officials in the world of football met with Acting Prime Minister Philip ‘Brave’ Davis, Minister of Youth, Sports & Culture Dr. Daniel Johnson and Ministry of Tourism Permanent Secretary Harrison Thompson today, and scored their first goal – assurance that government would provide “the highest level of cooperation” as the country prepares to host the FIFA 2017 Beach Soccer World Cup Bahamas.“We appreciate the fact that The Bahamas has been selected to host the Beach Soccer World Cup in 2017 and we want to assure you that you will receive the highest level of support and cooperation from this Government,” said Davis during a meeting at the Office of the Prime Minister attended by local and international officials including Jaime Yarza, FIFA Director of Events Worldwide and Juan Cusco, President FIFA Beach Soccer Worldwide. “We are 100% behind the program.”Still 17 months out, the Beach Soccer World Cup scheduled for April 2017 is expected to be one of the largest draws sports tourism has ever enjoyed. Participation is being compared to the IAAF World Relays and the Battle for Atlantis, events that pack hotels, flood restaurants, fill taxis, drive shopping and attract an active lifestyle tourist who wants the best of The Bahamas.According to officials, 16 countries will qualify to field full teams for matches that take place over an extended 10-day period with each team bringing a complement of 25 persons or more. Because of the length of the competition, economic benefits are being touted as in the multi-millions of dollars. “Beach soccer is one of the quickest-growing sports worldwide,” said Cusco. “Not long ago there were 50 countries with beach soccer teams. That has grown to over 150 countries in the last few years and that is fantastic for islands like The Bahamas because it is a sport that is attracting young, healthy players.”Noting the rapid progress the country has made in catapulting to world status as a venue for major sports events and what it takes to pull off those events seamlessly, especially those televised live, the Minister of Youth, Sports and Culture reinforced the offer of assurance.“This is an example of the branding of Sports in Paradise,” Johnson said, “and an opportunity for us to say beach soccer is better in The Bahamas. We welcome you and look forward to your event and your social responsibility.”FIFA is known for the positive imprint it leaves on communities and its top officials hinted The Bahamas would continue to benefit as it has with contributions that include the Beach Soccer field on the harbourfront near the Paradise Island Bridge, the only one of its kind worldwide.

Jamaicas Senate Begins debate on National Identification and Registration Bill

first_img Recommended for you Two boys die, bicycle and van collide in St. Catherine, Jamaica Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApp Related Items:jamaica Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApp#Jamaica, November 7, 2017 – Kingston – The National Identification and Registration Act, 2017, which seeks to establish a reliable identification system for Jamaicans, is expected to be passed at the next sitting of the Senate on Friday (November 10).   This is the intention of the Government, as it seeks to secure funding from the Inter-American Development Bank (IDB) to undertake the project which is being implemented by the Office of the Prime Minister.Opening the debate on the Bill in the Upper House on Friday (November 3), Leader of Government Business, Senator the Hon. Kamina Johnson Smith explained that the administration has a limited time frame to acquire the required money.“There is a timeline that is important to us, in respect of securing IDB funding for the implementation of the project.   If we are to have the matter before the Board in time for us to stick with an effective timeline, that is to get it before their November Board meeting, then we will have to pass it (the Bill) next week Friday,” she said.The Bill seeks to facilitate the establishment and regulation of a National Identification System (NIDS) for the registration, verification and authentication of the identity of citizens and other persons residing in Jamaica; and the establishment of a National Civil and Identification Database to generate national identification cards.Under this system, which the Government assures will be comprehensive and secure with anti-fraud features, every Jamaican will have a unique identification number.   Its implementation is expected to result in improved governance and management of social, economic and security programmes.Mrs. Johnson Smith, who is also Minister of Foreign Affairs and Foreign Trade, encouraged members of the Senate to submit suggestions or concerns regarding the Bill by next week.“I would welcome if there are outstanding issues, on reading the amendments, if you would submit (suggestions) for amendments so that the technical people can look at them to help us to move with alacrity.   It is critical that we close on Friday and therefore anything that we can do to make the process move more effectively, would certainly be welcomed,” she said.In the meantime, Mrs. Johnson Smith noted that when the NIDS is implemented it will have a positive, transformative effect on Jamaica and will improve how the Government does business as well as improve the lives and productivity of citizens.“The NIDS will provide us with one ID to make our lives better, one ID opening new possibilities for truly inclusive economic growth and job creation, one ID to positively transform Jamaica into a digital economy,” she said.Debate on the Bill was suspended until the next sitting of the Senate.   Mrs. Johnson Smith said this was to accommodate members who wished to attend the funeral of former Opposition Senator, Marjorie Taylor.The Bill was approved in the Lower House on September 19 with 100 amendments.Release: JIS Bahamas DPM Turnquest, as IDB Governor, Talks Technology and Climate Change Resilience at IDB Conclave Climate change pilot projects launched in Jamaicalast_img read more
