My Admiration For Bill Goldberg
October 18, 2003 by Joseph Huber

I know I haven't written a column in weeks but I have a good excuse.

Here is the scoop: I was recently in the hospital cause my cat bit me. The bite got infected. I have serious medical conditions, Lupus & TTP (Thrombotic Thrombocytopenic Purpura). TTP is basically a disease where if I get cut I can bleed to death. I don't heal as well as normal people do. Anyway, the infection got so bad that my blood pressure dropped to 60/30 and I ran a fever of 108. I was really close to death. So close that it is a miracle I am still alive to write this column.

OK, what does this all have to do with wrestling? And Bill Goldberg in particular?

Well I had written to Goldberg on his personal site (not the WWE site but his personal one before my cat attacked me. I guess I now have something in common with Roy from Seigfried & Roy. Pun intended.

Bill didn't send me the autograph because he felt sorry for me. He sent it out of the kindness of his heart.

Anyway, this is my very first wrestler's autograph and I am a big fan of Goldberg. Say what you will about the man but I think it shows class that he sends out autographs like this. It is even encased in a plastic wrap to protect it. It is my first and only wrestler's autograph. It helped cheer me up at one of the lowest moments in my life. I just want to give a shout out to Bill Goldberg. You are a class act and a true champ in my opinion!

PS Sorry to hear about the passing of Stu Hart. My thoughts and prayers are with Bret and his family.
