They call it "The Greatest Sport on Earth" for a reason.
It just took me 26 years to figure out why.

If you live long enough, life will throw you to your back.
And when it does, you're much better off if you've wrestled.
You learn later in life how vital the disciplines of wrestling are, especially against a seemingly insurmountable opponent in a disease or illness.
Twenty-six years ago, my goal and mission in life was to win a New York State Wrestling Championship.
I committed myself to a lifestyle and made the sacrifices.
I put in the time. I had the hunger, the desire, and the determination, but I came up short.
For many years after I graduated it seemed like I got nothing out of my six years of total dedication to the sport; that the trade-off of what I gave and what I got in return to this sport was way out of whack.
I hated wrestling for it.
Until I had adversity in my life.
And slowly but surely, I started realizing how much the sport of wrestling has given back to me.
Much more than I ever knew.
"6 Minutes Wrestling with Life" is much more than a wrestling book.
It is a book on life, love, loss and belief.
Get ready to laugh, cry, smile and think.
You will never look at life the same way again.

Book Description CreateSpace Independent Publishing Platform. Paperback. Condition: New. This item is printed on demand. 300 pages. Dimensions: 9.0in. x 6.0in. x 0.7in.Imagine yourself inside of a parents worst nightmare - within the 6 minutes your child lies unconscious. Each second is passing faster than the last. The minutes are mounting. Your hope is dwindling. The doctor, who has been working feverishly to revive your child has since stopped and is now heading toward you. Rarely do we know life changing events as they are happening, but this time you know. You know deep down, that in a few seconds, after a few words, your life is going to change forever. All you keep saying to yourself as the doctor approaches is, Just dont say it. Just dont say it. Just dont say time of death. 6 Minutes Wrestling with Life is an emotionally riveting story of one familys refusal to never give up. To keep moving forward under tremendous emotional pain and astronomical odds. To be able to continue to live, despite dying inside. To love, in the midst of loss. To understand that Every Breath Is Gold. Excerpt from 6 Minutes Wrestling With Life MEMBER OF A SECRET CLUB The real voyage of discovery consists not in seeking new landscapes but in having new eyes. Marcel Proust There is a club in this world you do not join knowingly. One day you are just a member. It is The Life Changing Events Club. The fee to join the club is hurt beyond belief, payable in full, up front, for a lifetime membership. The benefit of the club is a newfound perspective on life, and a deep understanding that you may not be happy about your current situation, but you can be happy in your current situation. The only rule of the club is you can never let on, not even once, that your life has completely changed. The club does not provide a directory of its members, but when you look into a members eye, you can tell that they, too, are part of the club. Members are allowed to exchange brief eye contact that says, I didnt know. Being a member of this club is the last thing anyone intentionally wants in their life. Being a member of this club is the best thing that ever happens to a person in their life, and there is not a person who would ever give up their membership. If you really look and know what you are looking for, you can spot the clubs members. They are the ones who perform a random act of kindness; people who do something for someone who can never repay them. They are the people spreading joy and optimism and lifting peoples spirits even when their own heart has been broken. I have paid my dues. My lifetime membership arrived today, not by mail, but by a deep inner feeling I cannot describe. It is the best club I never wanted to be part of. But I am - for life. 6 Minutes Wrestling With Life is much more than a wrestling book. It is a book about life, unconditional love and belief. I have never read such an inspirational book in my life.
