Some things never change...

From the First Oration of Gregory Nazianzen (St. Gregory the Theologian), in 379 A.D. (found here [PDF], p.24)

[There are] persons who in the theatres perform wrestling
matches in public, but not that kind of wrestling in which
the victory is won according to the rules of the sport, but a
kind to deceive the eyes of those who are ignorant in such
matters, and to catch applause...

And now you know why I don't watch Pro Wrestling. :P

Hi! Feel free to comment. However, I was getting posts from different Anonymous people, and it's difficult to know who is who so I can keep the conversation straight in my head. So I'm requesting that you please bear with my weakness, and identify yourself. Even if you want to use a different name than your real name -- that's fine. But give yourself a handle for me, please. :) Thanks...
