Rowdy Roddy Piper.
Where do I even begin?
The world was saddened to hear on Friday that yet another professional wrestler has been taken from us at an age entirely too young. Roddy died of a heart attack in his sleep Thursday night at the age of 61. I didn’t get word of his passing until Friday afternoon when I was on my way home from work and TMZ had reported it. Immediately, my phone started blowing up…friends were posting the story to Facebook, I was getting Twitter notifications, and text messages informing me of this sad story. I continued to play the telephone game, relaying the message on to other wrestling fan friends who I hadn’t heard from and one by one, I kept receiving the same responses from them that I had. I was overcome with just an immense amount of sadness, knowing that yet another piece of my childhood has left us.
