(Mankind) Foley endorses Mickey Rourke's 'Wrestler'

Here is the main element of my Friday newspaper column, in which pro wrestling fixture Mick (Mankind) Foley, Ward Melville High alum and still a resident of the Town of Smithtown, talks about Mickey Rourke's performance in "The Wrestler," which could earn him an Oscar Sunday.

Here is the review Foley wrote for Slate.com in December.

Here is the review of the film in Sports Illustrated that infuriated Foley, prompting this long, passionate retort.

Here is the latest on the stranger-than-fiction story of actor Scott Siegel, who plays a steroids dealer and this week was busted for being the real thing.

Foley thought the scene involving Siegel and Rourke was realistic, to a point, but that the volume of drugs in the transaction was overstated for dramatic effect.
