I've taken the month of August to chill out and enjoy the best summer Calgary's seen in a while. It's been a cool but blurring couple of months going all the way back to the recent WWE tour of South Africa. The trip there, in itself, was exhausting; but from the minute my feet hit the ground, I couldn't get enough of Cape Town again. I hadn't been back there since 1997. It was such a cool time for me back then as babyface/heel defending my title against The Undertaker. The audience was basically split between us, which made my heel turn as an American basher so special. Fans around the world for the most part stayed loyal to me as intended, despite a sneaky effort to ruin me however and whenever the time came. But back in a new free South Africa in 1997, the newly enlightened WWE fans cheered me on anyway. This really allowed WWE to fans think about and ultimately choose their heroes. Some of the best memories I ever had.

I have to apologize for not getting more blogs done in the past few weeks, but it's been nothing short of a miracle this year with some absolutely gorgeous fall weather. I hadthe thrill of being home for the entire World Series and it brought back my boyhood spirit watching baseball with my wife, Stephanie, both of us longtime Giants fans for so manyyears finally having our moment.
It was great watching NFL Sunday relatively undisturbed. I like Favre, but I think the surprise Super Bowl winner will be the NY Jets. I like the Raiders and I like McNabb. I like the Ravens. I change my mind and think it'll be the Steelers. But, then again, don't bet against those Saints. As far as the CFL, I predicted at the beginning of the season it would be aGrey Cup showdown between the Alouettes and my beloved Stampeders. Looks like I'm still on track to be right. Stamps will win.

Firstly, I'd like to say how great it is watching Canada compete in the Winter Olympics this year. Canadian pride is swollen to an all- time max and I have high expectations on how Canada will do this year. It's a shame that tragedy struck so quickly with the death of the Georgian luger and, like all Canadians and people around the world, my heart goes out to his family and his fellow countrymen. In a sad but odd way, I know how it feels watching someone you love die in front of the world doing something they love. Go Canada Go! Show the world what we're made of!
As far as the WWE goes, all I can say is where the heck is Jim Ross?

"I had a chance to catch up with Nattie and Harry (Natalya and David Hart Smith in WWE) this past weekend and I had my first chance to show off my Chinese fighting dog, Jojo. Even Harry was impressed with the wrestling knowledge that my dog possesses and Jojo surprised him with his takedowns and submission holds. He was curious to know how Jojo would fare in his upcoming tournament.where he'll put on an exhibition against Guido Sanchez a young chihuahua who has his orange belt and has won several bouts with his finisher leg lock. Animal activists will be glad to know Jojo has never gone to the throat yet, and tends to let his opponents up after scoring his pinfall or a submission.
"It was great being invited back to drop the puck for the Calgary Hitmen this past Sunday for the 15th anniversary celebration. I had a great time at the game and though, unfortunately, the Hitmen lost their first game of the season, they're presently tearing up the league with a 6-1 record and have been touted as the number one ranked junior team in Canada for the third year in a row. I want to wish them all the best for what looks like another great season and I recommend to all classic Hitman fans to check out the cool throwback jerseys. It was what I envisioned all along. Let's go Hitmen!" -Bret

After 10 years as my assistant and personal coordinator, it is with deep regret that Marcy Englestein is stepping down from her duties. I know many friends and fans will miss her. Marcy will continue to assist me in various writing projects but I wanted to take this time on behalf of myself and those who got to work with her to wish her continued success in the years ahead.
"Everyone's got to face down the demons.
Maybe today...We can put the past away!"

When the music hits, the first few notes will send a shiver down fans' spines. The familiar sound that was the beginning of Bret Hart's entrance music will stir fans' emotions.
Alberta will have a home team again.
Former WWE star Bret The Hitman Hart creates another smash hit
BY SCOTT FISHMAN
MIAMI HERALD WRITER
Bret's book debuted at #5 on the UK Sunday Times bestseller list last weekend - and Bret arrived over there after that for book signings in England and Ireland.
UK fans, Bret thanks you for this fabulous book release and he looks forward to meeting you all at the book signings. By the way, you don't have to wait until a signing to buy a book. Pick up your copy now and bring it along to the signing. (Keep your receipt, if possible).
Hey, how does that old Hitman soccer chant go - complete with stomp and clap? We Want The Hit- MAN !! That particular chant only ever happened in the UK, you know? (We're sure Bret would love to hear it again..... wink wink... Memories, eh?)
This morning Bret Hart's management became aware of an interview with Bret posted by Cornelius Wilson of wrestling-edge.com. As Bret's management did not schedule this interview or know anything about it we asked Bret if he had, in fact, done the interview. He said he did no such interview. The so-called interview is completely phony.
Join Bret and CBC radio host Russell Bowers on the Daybreak morning show when Bret calls in from Hawaii for a talk about the 25th anniversary of Wrestlemania and the wrestling business today.
