Macho Man lives on
OMGreds friends and jersey aficionado, Josh Shortt, shared his latest addition with us – a replica 1974 Randy Poffo, aka “Macho Man” Randy Savage jersey. We think you’ll agree that it’s quite outstanding. If you see Josh around GABP with this badboy on, make sure you give him a big “Ooh yeah!” for us, won’t ya?

A little late to the scene on this one, but all the fellas at OMGreds were saddened to hear of “Macho Man” Randy Savage’s passing earlier this week.
We all grew up in a era ruled by the WWF and loved guys like Macho Man, Hulk Hogan, Jake “The Snake” Roberts, Rowdy Roddy Piper and my own personal favorite, Koko B. Ware. I mean, come on, dude had a parrot! So awesome.
Surely, we will all miss Macho Man.
I do have to admit, I didn’t remember that Savage (who went by his given name Randy Poffo) had played ball in the Reds and Cardinals organizations and wasn’t half-bad before he wrestling career took off. How awesome is that? Well, our main man Jim Day posted the photo above on Twitter earlier this evening featuring Randy sporting the ol’ red and white. Great stuff.
R.I.P., Macho Man.
SNAP INTO THIS! Our homie JT over at The Writer’s Journey did his thing on a pretty spiffy custom baseball card for Macho Man. Ohhh yeah!
