BIDEN HAS NO FUEL, WILL NOT RUN ON EMPTY?

"If I were to announce to run, I have to be able to commit to all of you that I would be able to give it my whole heart and my whole soul, and right now, both are pretty well banged up." - Vice President Joe Biden on his 2016 chances of running for the presidency. Icheoku adds that clears a possible serious obstacle to Hillary Clinton which means she is still the presumptive presidential nominee of the Democratic Party. What a lifeline from On High; except that Joey is still very much around with us here on earth.

WWE UMAGA, DIES OF HEART-ATTACK!

Any avid watcher of the Vince McMahon's World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) will like the swagger of Umaga, the Samoan Bulldozer! Unfortunately, the heavily tattooed 6'4, 350-lb. giant from Samoa is no more, he died of massive coronary embolism aka heart attack at Northwest Medical Center, a Houston Texas hospital on Friday, December 4, 2009. 'Umaga' whose real name is Eki Eddie Fatu was 36 years old.
'Umaga' was a member of the large Anoa’i and Fatu wrestling family of Samoa, who have influenced the business for several generations; a family which includes his cousin, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, who later left wrestling for Hollywood fame and has several movies to his credit.
Umaga was released from his WWE contract on June 8 2009 after he refused to go into rehabilitation following a second violation of the WWE’s no-drugs policy; in other words, he was a user which could have precipitated his heart condition leading his eventual death. His last known engagement was in Australia where he had gone as part of the “Hulkamania Tour” in Australia; an independent wrestling tour; only to return and suffer a heart attack and died as a result. His wife found him on Thursday night not breathing, with blood coming out of his nose and rushed him to the hospital but never made it out alive.
His death adds impetus to carry through President Barack Obama's health care reform so that many Americans and residents alike can have access to medical care. Umaga was part of the 33 million people in America without a health insurance which he can afford; and as a result only got to see a doctor when it was already too late! If only he had been to check-ups, may be he will still be alive to continue to provide the world of wrestling lovers some entertainment. Umaga now joins other recently departed WWE wrestlers including Canadian pro-wrestler Andrew Test Martin, Chris Benoit and Eddie Guerrero. Icheoku prays his massive soul rest in peace!
