A whole wwwreessslin' meet

Go watch Breakfast Club.  One of my favorite exchanges from the movie comes from" John Bender, played by Judd Nelson, as he razzes "Andrew Clark", Emilio Estevez's character during an exchange, making fun of wrestlers. 

Understandable.  It is a day of shooting asses and elbows. But I love every minute of it.  The amount of emotion that one sees in a few short minutes is the same as many people experience in a year.

Here is a photo of the loneliest feeling on the planet.  Losing a match during the state wrestling tournament.  My hat's off to this wrestler, Rip Price of Air Academy  High School.  I photographed him in the hallway contemplating his loss.  A true athlete who has accomplished more that most.
