Nuk, Nuk, Nuk

Curly, Curly, Jr., and I on the morning news
The last couple of days have been more fun than usually for me at work.  On Tuesday, I got to do an interview and demonstration with a local MMA fighter.  Wednesday morning, I welcomed a couple of local wrestlers on the show.

Dan "Curly" Summers as you can tell from the picture above is a big fan of the 3 Stooges.  He has 99 tattoos honoring the comedy trio.  Not only is he a fan of the Stooges, but Curly also loves wrestling.  His new group Southern Illinois Wrestling Entertainment will be holding a show this weekend.  They're raising money for the Shop with a Cop program.   It's a community outreach that provides kids in the area (West Frankfort for this fundraiser) with toys and clothes for Christmas.  And that's why Curly was on the show.  To promote the matches coming up Saturday night.

You may notice the little guy in the pic too.  That's Curly, Jr. and he plays a role in the matches too at the tender age of 3.  He helped dad perfect his patented eye gouge.

Our interview was going well until we were "interrupted" by the devious Tyler Hatton.  He played the role of the heel to the hilt, insulting Curly, his young son, and even me.  Then things got interesting, take a look...SIWE on News 3 This Morning

The guys told me about 30 seconds before we went on air what was going to happen, so I just followed their lead.  It was a lot of fun.  I may be no Josh Matthews or Todd Pettingill, but who cares.  It's segments like these that make my job even more fun.  I get to be more of myself and have a little fun talking about something I love.


  1. You did an amazing article.

  2. The metal strap is different from the leather strap, so it is suitable for wearing in summer. First of all, the metal strap is cool, and it is very comfortable and cool to wear in the hot summer.
