WWE SmackDown Live Flexes Its Mighty Muscle in Music City

 

WWE Main EventNashville, TN – Okay, I admit it. I was never that big of a wrestling fan. You know why – it seemed fake, was too scripted, so overly dramatic and always over the top. But I had friends who loved it. My college roommate would often reenact a Jimmy “The Superfly” Snuka leap off of his bed straight onto yours truly further alienating me from the entertainment value of the sport.

However, attending the WWE SmackDown Live on August 2nd, 2016 at the Bridgestone Arena in Nashville, Tennessee might have finally tilted me toward fandom – or, at least provided me with extreme appreciation for the empire that Vince McMahon and Company have built over the past four decades.

Alley Poet’s Pen: For Rent – Home

 

Alley Poet's PenNashville, TN – For Rent: I saw the photo of the little cottage house kitchen flashing at me from the screen of my Ipad. It had a warmth I could feel from its vintage 1947 age, but was renovated smartly with granite counters and white painted cabinets.

There was a window above the sink that looked out to a yard (always a rule for every house I’ve ever lived in) with streams of light shining in, and it was there I could see the tree. Thick, old, and jutting up grandly, ignoring the busy road with cars gliding by frequently, and casting shade on the “tear-down-turned modern house” that was going up next door.

Alley Poet’s Pen: Winds of Change – An “Identity Theft” in the Making

 

Alley Poet's PenNashville, TN – Did you ever have the dream where you discover there are other rooms in your house that you knew nothing about? This month marks my third anniversary in Nashville, and I feel a bit like I’ve been living in those “other rooms” for three full years. They are foreign and yet increasingly familiar the longer I stay in the south.

They say Nashville is a “five-year town,” but that’s for songwriters and artists looking to sign a deal. Many musicians mark each year in Music City as a reflective milestone, marking the highs and lows, wins and losses, in a tough, and often unforgiving town. To be honest, I never thought Nashville would even be a six-month town. You see, I never expected to actually live here.
