Happy Birthday, Goldust!

Happy Birthday, Goldust!  Today, he turns 47 years old.
For those who may not know, Goldust was the first wrestler who drew me into the world of professional wrestling.  I remember being five years old, sitting on the living room floor in front of the television one Saturday morning just flipping through channels.  It was during a commercial break during Saturday morning cartoons, and I happened to stumble upon this eccentric man painted in gold with long, blonde hair.  I was immediately fascinated.  Needless to say, I didn’t return to the cartoons.  If it weren’t for Goldust, I wouldn’t have fallen in love with professional wrestling.  Who knows what would occupy my heart, mind and time if wrestling weren’t a huge part of my life.
Not only do I celebrate Goldust’s life, but the legacy he’s cemented in professional wrestling.  It wouldn’t be nearly as dynamic or entertaining without him.
