I suppose it’s time for us gamers in South Texas to start making a pilgrimage to the Videogame History Museum. What’s nice is that we won’t have to travel TOO far, but at this time most of its collection is in storage, and what we’ve been able to see concerning it was on cross-country tours at various gaming conferences and conventions. But in the near future, there will be a permanent public display, as the Frisco, Texas community board has approved a deal to give the Museum a 10,400 square foot location (roughly a bit larger than a baseball diamond) inside the city’s Discovery Center by this April, and then we retro gaming nerds can easily revisit some of the classic games and consoles that defined our childhood.

Stone Cold Steve Austin has pretty much done it all. He’s held 25 championships in his pro wrestling career, is a 6-time WWF Champion — and the fifth Triple Crown Champion — winner of the 1996 King of the Ring tournament (where he coined the infamous “Austin 3:16” catchphrase), won the 1997 (technically), 1998 and 2001 Royal Rumbles, a WWE Hall of Fame inductee in 2009, and an accomplished action movie/television star. But if you’re jones-ing for some new content from the Texas Rattlesnake and the classic matches aren’t cutting it, you should really, REALLY subscribe to his podcast, “The Steve Austin Show“, straight from the Broken Skull Ranch.

When one thinks about the glory days of professional wrestling in the great state of Texas, you think about the talent (i.e., the Von Erich family), the promotions (i.e., World Class Championship Wrestling) and when it comes to venues, you HAVE to talk about the Dallas Sportatorium. The Sportatorium (built in 1934) was a 4,500-seat capacity barn-like arena primarily used for professional wrestling shows, and it stood at 1000 South Industrial Boulevard (near the I-30/I35 East interchange) in downtown Dallas, Texas.
