Aka Oni is red devil or red ogre, it's the Shikona or ring name for my short-lived Sumo career.

Back in the day you were only allowed 1 gut unless you scored 2 or more after. You could gut or lift. We trained to gut first, lift second.

We read a short story by Isaac Bashevis Singer in freshman english. Gimpel The Fool. Luckily I ended up with the first 4 letters. (Mostly known as Gimp)

Named after one of my favorite bands from the 80's and 90's that was on Touch and Go Records. Plus a B-Movie from the 70's. Also referenced in movie Idiocracy. (Mike Judge was also a fan of the band)

It won out over Scratch Acid, Butthole Surfer, Rapeman and Brainiac. (All T&G bands as well)

But if I did choose Butthole Surfer... People would think Fudge Tunnel and I planned it.

I have very thin, “tight”, waistline. Beer, donuts and wings don’t seem to have a negative impact.

Alyosha is the younger of the three brothers in Fyodor Dostoevsky's famous novel The Brothers Karamazov. He has always been a spiritual hero of mine. Alyosha's account of the life of the elder monk Zossima is one of the most powerful tales I've ever read. I recommend reading just that one section of Book VI even if you don't have time for the 1,000 page novel.  

 

So, basically, I like American wrestling and Russian literature.

 

By the way, I've been an avid reader of this board for well over a decade. I just rarely have time to post. Thanks to all the regular posters who keep it entertaining.

Had to go with a more relevant name because my given name of Grover Clinton Bryant III wouldn’t work with newspaper bylines.

During my 3-year high school career, I only successfully took down anyone with a double leg. Well, and a dump if they stopped the double. Once my regular opponents figured out my two moves, I was toast.

Gambatte! Give your best. Even against insurmountable odds, give your all. A Japanese phrase I picked up training with Chuo University in 1973. Has multiple levels of meaning and grew out of the Samurai tradition.
