Katrina sends Castine Packing

kory castine Kory Castine, a forward on the Tulane University basketball team used to enjoy playing practically in his back yard. But the 3rd year Green Wave player was no match for the dark wave of destruction that Hurricane Kristina would bring, and the only New Orleans resident on the team found himself evacuating his family and leaving their home to take the brunt of the damage. Kory's mother, a registered nurse, remained behind to help ease the suffering that would be forthcoming.

Castine and his teammates eventually ended up at Texas A&M University for at least a semester, and their first year head coach has moved his focus from drills and discipline to finding his players rooms and meal plans. Kory has since reunited with his mother and has begun settling down in College Station, Texas and wondering how and where his team will be mid season.

Kory played in 26 games last year and managed a field goal percentage of .500, second only to forward/center Quincy Davis, the team's leading scorer and rebounder. Castine was also second with a .813 free throw percentage among players with 10 or more free throws. He has contributed 55 offensive and 78 defensive boards for a total of 133 rebounds for his team and is set to remain a contributing force with the Wave, wherever they may end up.

Iceberg Rips Through the Competition

Iceberg with Championship Belt Edward Chastain, or Iceberg, as his friends, enemies and victims refer to him has been an imposing figure and force in the pro wrestling circuit for over 5 years now. He has fought such wrestling legends as Carlos Colon and Abdullah the Butcher, beating the latter for the brass knuckles championship. This would be far from the last championship honors that he would claim for himself. There was even a reign of terror atop the NWA Wildside that lasted from Sept. 2002 through July 2003 and seemed as if it would never be stopped.

But he does not cite this unprecedented championship run among his most memorable acheivements, he is much classier than that, despite his "Being of Inconceivable Horror" image. He lists his bouts with Colon, Abdullah the Butcher and Mr Pogo of Japan, as his greatest acheivements, along with his mention in Pro Wrestling Illustrated's top 500, where he debuted at #289, and has progressed each consecutive year, placing him within the ranks of the 300 greatest professional wrestlers in the world today.

Iceberg has been a professional wrestler for over five years now. He claims that after having watched New Jack (the wrestler from the high profile trial charged with assault and battery with a deadly weapon, for stabbing "Mass Transit" Kulas 14 times during a match in Jacksonville) jump from a Ryder truck onto D-Von Dudley, he was inspired to become a wrestler and has been pro ever since. Even though New Jack has since stapled dollar bills to his head and stabbed him through the arm with a pool cue, Chastain still considers him to be his inspiration and his friend. Bloody Iceberg

As he continues along those same lines of hard core wrestling, you can be almost certain that if Iceberg loses, there will be blood, and lots of it. Then again, he bleeds quite a bit more often than he loses. It doesn't seem likely that this Iceberg will be disappearing from the horizon any time soon.
