Killer Kowalski Health Update

Today's Boston Herald features an article by columnist Joe Fitzgerald about the health of our friend, the legendary Hall of Famer, Walter "Killer" Kowalski. You can read Joe's article by clicking here.

There are few larger than life legends who exceed your expectations in real life. Walter Kowalski is one of the few.

The legendary villian of the ring, whose exploits are forever stamped into our memories as fans of pro wrestling, is in a very different kind of battle right now. As the Herald article states, Kowalski's knees are gone, and corrective surgery, such as a knee replacement, is a high risk procedure due to his age and physical condition. This once vibrant man is now bed ridden and relegated to a nursing home.

Anyone who ever met this gentle giant with a heart of gold, will tell you how such a fate is so undeserved. Please keep Walter and his lovely wife Theresa in your thoughts and prayers.
