James sent the following....Kurt Angle is mentioned in the latest issue of SI along with Rulon Gardner in the Inside Olympics section on page 34 for being former gold medalists who fell short of making a return to the Olympics.

Nick sent the following report from Hulk Hogan's 4/25 appearance in Forked River, NJ. ... The Hulk Hogan meet and greet was a lot of fun. The place was packed with hundreds of fans with a line outside the venue as well(Jose Canseco had 40 fans this Monday at the venue). For 200 dollars I was able to take a great 8/10 picture with Hulk and get a signed item. He was personable and it was overall a good experience. I'm very happy I went!
