News that Randy “Macho Man” Savage died in a car accident age 58 has triggered plenty of nostalgic tributes. From David Brown, Yahoo Sports:
“A small part of my childhood died. … Other than Hulk Hogan or Andre the Giant, no WWF rassler was more popular than Savage in the late 1980s,” writes Brown, who also recounts Savage’s four-year stint in baseball’s minor leagues.

Bryan* eventually became my boyfriend, but I often think back to that night when I went off with a strange guy — and more than a few other nights like it — that could have gone wrong.
