Columbia Honors Icon w/ Key to City...





"WHETHER YA LIKE IT, OR DON'T LIKE IT...SIT DOWN AND LOOK AT IT... CAUSE IT'S THE BEST THING GOIN TA'DAY... WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!"

Icons of X'ers; Michael Jackson, Cindy Lauper, Duke Boys, Luke Skywalker, Madonna, E.T. and Ric Flair...

On Monday, Mayor Bob Coble is going to give 16 Time World Heavyweight Champion, Ric Flair, a key to Columbia. Mayor Bob will also deem March 24 as "Ric Flair Day," in the Capital City.

My buddies and I loved Saturday mornings growing up. Sure, The Smurfs were cool and Thundar: The Barbarian was a badass, but we were really up to watch the NWA. The National Wrestling Association had the best tv hour of them all. It's biggest star, and most glamorous figure, was Ric Flair.

This guy couldn't fly through the air or lift 300lb men, but his personality (and robes) made him the king of the wrestling movement. Ric Flair introduced us to limousines, Baby Doll's and Space Mountain.

Tomorrow, The Natureboy will have a key to Columbia. Keep this in mind when you are cruising in Forest Acres or across the river, and for some reason can't get in...
