    Is the dude really deaf? Is it possible he was in the paralympics?

    Seriously? This is published in a newspaper in freaking Guyana and you are bent out of shape? Unless you work either there or lost to him in a wrestling match, why do you give a flip?

    Maybe their high standards of journalism will prevent more articles about this guy from appearing in the New York Times of South America.

    So, did he beat you with an arm bar or a split crotch?

    Why? If some dude wants to lie about getting tea-bagged continually...well, live and let live.

    so you did an article on him being a wrestler and didn't bother to talk to anyone on the wrestling team before you published it?

    If the papers want to run one-source stories without checking facts, this is the risk they take.

    Somehow I've missed how this guy has brought about the demise of the industry with his sordid tale, but I don't catch everything.

    really, dog? you're going to come here, ask a question and then start shit if you don't get the answers you want?

    play nice, jackie.

    Outstanding close to that article. I think it was Benjamin Franklin's quote this references:

    I think you and the deaf guy should settle this...IN THE CAGE!

    Seriously though, I'd suggest calling the papers who ran with his story...maybe they'll do a follow-up and get the ball rolling.

    If you ever see story on the due, contact the newspaper and point out the errors and let them deal with it.

    Unless you follow the guy around with a sign, what else can you do. And you don't need to be "tactful" just provide a link to the USA wrestling roster and a contact at the college if they feel compelled to check up on their incredibly shoddy reporting.

    I would call every newspaper in existence and warn them about this guy.

    Either that or get over it. But I'm not sure which one will be easier for you.
