Mike Wise's Brush With Death
I certainly don't want to make light of Mike Wise's brush with death, but I will say that the only person I know who could turn a brush with death into an appearance on the cover of the GW Hatchet is Mike Wise. And I give him full clearance to make fun of me if I ever wind up strangled to death by the friends of pro wrestling legend Eddie Venom.
Anyhow, apparently this hit the evening news last night, and it was all over the local airwaves last week, but to my mind it doesn't become a legit story until the Hatchet picks it up and nabs a photo of Wise, looking contemplative, in a hooded sweatshirt. Here's how the pretty tremendous story begins:
As a Washington Post sports columnist, Mike Wise has covered everything from the Olympics to basketball star Gilbert Arenas. He ghost wrote Shaquille O'Neal's autobiography and spends time all over the country chronicling Washington sports figures.
But if not for GW law student Jason Coates, Wise thinks he could have been dead.
There seems to be some sort of implication that the covering of the Olympics and basketball star Gilbert Arenas in some way vaccinates one from the likelihood of icy death, which is fine by me. Anyhow, thanks to Jason Coates for saving Wise's life, thanks to the Hatchet for spotlighting this bit of heroism, thanks to Wise for not dying and thanks to the friends of pro wrestling legend Eddie Venom for, to this point, not having strangled me.
