It has always been one of my biggest fears to have one of the lights fall down from the rafters of an arena. That nightmare happened to senior wrestler Michael McComish of the Madison Bulldogs as he was crouched on all fours, ready to get his wrestling on. One second he’s there, the next second there’s a gigantic light fixture draped around his back. (He’s OK).

The kid is very lucky that his body was able to absorb most of the blow.

Never trust old buildings once inhabited by Godzilla’s eggs.

No worries though. He’s fine, miraculously.

    Why this place is still standing is beyond me. Terrible arena for sports. Lighting sucks. And now stuff is falling from the ceiling. What next?

    You know it wasn’t really in MSG!? Just some high school gym.
