Title: Neil deGrasse Tyson discussing wrestling.

Thought this was cool. Neil deGrasse Tyson did a zoom chat with an astronomy club and a student asked him how wrestling impacted his life.

“Anyone who has wrestled knows that it’s the hardest thing in the world to do,” he told Flowrestling. “Anyone who says something else is the hardest thing has never wrestled. That’s what I have found. … You don’t wrestle because it’s easy, you wrestle because it’s hard. I don’t do astrophysics because it’s easy, I do it because it’s hard. And I juxtapose the two in my mind, body, and soul all the time.”

He's an interesting guy.

I tried to get him to come and speak at our high school.
His schedule was too full.

Maybe one of the best wrestling interviews, ever. This is from Beat the Streets Times Square. Burroughs pinned Hafanov of Spain/Azerbijian. Metcalf beat #3 in the world at the time Magomed Kurbanaliev, Snyder made his international debut nearly beating a stellar Iranian and Maroulis pinned her South American (forget which country) opponent. Such an outstanding event. I was lucky enough to attend.
