Day-Old News: Kurt Angle backs out of 2012 Olympics wrestling training

Kurt, we have plenty of these in Iowa City, are you sure you don't want to come here?

According to, Kurt Angle has sustained a hamstring injury that has forced him out of his training for the 2012 Olympics. Angle also has an age – 43, to be exact – that has forced him out of training as well.

One bad thing that comes of this is that the 2012 Olympic wrestling trials are being held in Iowa City, Iowa, next week, and given that the University of Iowa is the No. 4 party school in the country, you know his drunk ass would have been found passed out in a median after chasing college-age black chicks all night at Caliente. One good thing that comes of this is that USA Today didn’t report on this story until about 8 hours ago, putting us only 8 hours behind the U.S.’s biggest newspaper.

Here’s hoping Kurt Angle doesn’t suffer a horrendous, I don’t know, uvula injury while gargling pills that keeps him out of another Iowa event, the National Wrestling Hall of Fame Dan Gable Museum hall of fame inductions in July. There will be nothing better than watching “sleepy” Kurt Angle prop himself up on JBL’s understanding shoulder. -Eric
