It's hump day, so here are some links to get you through the rest of the week:


- I rarely link back to earlier posts on here that aren't podcasts, but I really feel strongly about this Chikara review. Read it. Love it. Experience it. And then buy their DVD from Smart Mark. If any promotion in this country is worthy of your money, it's Chikara Pro Wrestling. [Sara del Rey and a World of Sport: Chikarasaurus Rex 2011 Review]

- And if you couldn't get enough Chikara talk, I wrote something for Fair to Flair about the match the English Johnnies had on Saturday. [Your Match of the Week, 7/25-7/31]

- Me and the mysterious but intriguing flubby from Kissing Suzy Kolber talk about football, bourbon and Memphis wrestling. Talk about a manly triad. Also, I insult his profession, and we talk about Nnamdi Asomugha like he wasn't going to the Eagles (because he hadn't signed there yet). [Episode 13: Jar of Superflies]
