Growing up with Flair
Placeholder Image
Wooooooo!ESPN’s popular “30 for 30” series took its first step inside the squared circle Tuesday night with a feature on legendary professional wrestler Ric Flair. If you missed the 90-minute special, it’s sure to have several repeat airings.The show caught my attention because I grew up watching Georgia Championship Wrestling on TBS with host Gordon Solie, the only man to repeatedly use the term “solar plexus.” Flair, with his bombastic antics, was one of the stars.It turns out, the jet-flying, limousine-riding lifestyle Flair always hollered about on camera wasn’t just an act.
