[how he acquired the nickname 'Wrestling Shoes from his cousins] They were a couple of years older and much funnier than me. Every time I opened my mouth, they would cut me down. We were playing poker one New Year's Eve, and they won all my money. I left the table and suddenly burst into tears. They asked me what was wrong, and I said , "That was for my wrestling shoes". So they called me Wrestling Shoes ever after.
