47 Years Ago Today... On this day in #1971 ... Ivan Koloff defeated Bruno Sammartino in front of over 21,000 stunned spectators at Madison Square Garden @thegarden.
It was the biggest #Sports story of the day... and arguably the most well-remembered historical event as well (don’t take my word for it - Google the date, etc).
The defeat ended Sammartino’s #WWWF World Heavyweight Championship reign of well over 7 years.
It was an honor to meet both of these remarkable gentlemen on the same day at the first #Wrestling convention I attended - the UWF Fan Expo - 20 years to the week of their epic encounter - as a 15 year old fan in January of ‘91.
It’s an opportunity now to remember Ivan Koloff, who recently passed, as well as to pay tribute to Bruno Sammartino - the two warriors who left the Garden and Wrestling fans in #NewYorkCity and throughout the world in shock and silence 47 years ago today

Turning dreams into realities; thats what 2018 is going to be all about. I was originally was looking for a 280z just because they're quite easy to find. So weeks go by of searching classifieds and multiple heart breaks due to people seeling from under me, I found it. But it wasn't a 280z, no! Somehow the heavens shined upon me and put a RUNNING early 1971 240z in front me me. Knowing what this car is and means, I freaked out. The following day I rented a truck and trailer, drove out to California and picked up this iconic piece of steel. So happy, so excited! I cannot wait to see where this thing goes!
