Wrestling great Bruno Sammartino passed away (today’s final story.) To me, that’s a personal loss of a great memory. You see, I was 18 or so and back in the winter of 1978, working with the Philadelphia Journal (in addition to the Flyers and in college) the first “athlete” I ever interviewed for the paper was Sammartino. He sat there in the spectrum press room along with promoter Phil Zacko, stone faced. He talked all about his career, his match, but when it came to the eternal question about wrestling being fake, he simply didn’t answer. …Facebook does a legal dodge…Jeff Bezos issues his annual letter…Amazon comes to Culver City…….Qualcomm comes up the loser…Those stories and more are all in today’s Comunicano….
