Slim J - Wrestling (yes, that kind) Instructor for mental_floss


A while back I had to great pleasure of getting lost in traveling to remote Georgia to photograph Jeremy "Slim J" Boyd at the home of Anarchy Wrestling, where he not only wrestles, but also instructs others on the sport. Talk about interesting. I've had mixed exposure to professional wrestling throughout my life (mostly in the form of high school and college friends enjoying it and me getting tangential info by osmosis), but never anything quite this direct. It was a bit like stepping behind the curtain only to find that the wizard is actually really fit, hard working athlete instead of a play actor in tight pants.

Many thanks to Winslow and Rob for providing me an opportunity to have sweat splashed on me. Find this story in the Jan/Feb issue of mental_floss!
