Bring Back WWE Ice Cream Bars

Why Ice Cream Bars? If you grew up in the late 80's all the way up until the mid 2000's you might remember the WWE/F Ice Cream Bars. Each bar came in a brightly colored box featuring all the big names in wrestling history. Names like Hulk Hogan, Jake "The Snake" Roberts, Ricky Steamboat, "The Macho Man" Randy Savage, Stone Cold Steve Austin, The Rock, John Cena, etc, have all graced these delicious treats. In 2009 Good Humor and WWE discontinued these amazing treats much to the dismay of many fans. Since they've been discontinued, the demand for these ice cream bars are higher than ever.  Will We Ever See Them Again?  Over the course of almost 10 years, WWE continues to tease the return of these treats. They've gone as far as to give the fans a recipe to make the ice cream bars themselves back in 2008. Most fans who tried it however, were unsuccessful. In 2011, former WWE Superstar Cm Punk, had a t-shirt featuring a WWE Ice Cream Bar on it. He claimed to have been "working on" getting the frozen treats back, but since then Punk has left the WWE and our hopes for WWE Ice Cream Bars seemed crushed. So the question remains, will we ever see them again? Merchandise Sales Each WWE Ice Cream bar, came in a box plastered with WWE Superstars all over the box. In most cases, the boxes came with a card on the side that you could punch out to keep.(I still have a few) Other times, the boxes came with cutouts of WWE Superstars that you could put on display anywhere. These ice cream bars originally sold for around $3-4, depending on where you picked them up at. With the high demand for these, WWE can easily make $4-5 off of just one ice cream bar, and they will sell fast. WWE's current roster features some of the biggest and best athletes to date. Superstars such as AJ Styles, Shinsuke Nakamura, John Cena, Seth Rollins, Dean Ambrose, Samoa Joe, and many more that they can easily place on the ice cream bars or even the boxes. It's been nearly 10 years since anyone has tasted the sweet taste of those WWE Ice Cream Bars and the money WWE would pull in from this would be amazing due to the high demand. If I'm not mistaken, these were only available in The U.S. With the amount of fans WWE has in this era, they can easily expand these treats on a global scale. What Can You Do To Help?  By signing this petition, you not only help us relay this message to WWE, you bring thousands of fans, one step closer to WWE Ice Cream Bars. It's been nearly 10 years since anyone has had a WWE Ice Cream bar and this petition will let WWE know that we will not rest. We will not give up, until our voices are heard. You can also share this petition after you signed it to help get as many signatures as we can. You're help will not go unnoticed as you will be helping many of thousands of people get back something that Good Humor and WWE took away from us in 2009.

Save Boise State Wrestling

Boise State University just announced that it is cutting its wrestling program, effective immediately. The Bronco wrestling program has been molding young men since 1959 and wrestling has a strong following in the Boise area and in the state of Idaho.Boise State had one of the top wrestling programs in the country up until a few years ago. The program was top-ten ranked in 2010-11 and had an NCAA finalist that season (and again in 2013). Since 1999, it has produced two NCAA champions, four NCAA finalists, two Olympians, 25 All-American honors, and six Pac-10 team championships. But the Boise State wrestling program doesn't just build winning wrestlers; it gives young men the foundation to be winners at life!!  Coach Mendoza, Riley Orozco, Levi Jones, Andrew Hochstrasser are exactly the type of young men I would want molding my son if he wrestled for them.If you don't know me, my name is Kevin Wood. I've been involved in wrestling for 50 years, 30 of them as a coach. I wrestled at Boise State University from 1979-82 and coached the high school wrestling teams at Mountain View, Eagle, Centennial, and Meridian.  Wrestling is the purest sport of intensity, endurance, mental toughness, camaraderie and simply "finding your true potential" sport that I have ever participated in. I owe the greatest moments and people in my life to the sport of wrestling. Every time I walk in and watch the BSU wrestlers work out, I am in awe of the hard work, determination, and true heart these guys put in every single day. A college wrestling room is truly "a jungle" of blood. sweat, incredible mental toughness and aspiring young athletes who don't know the word QUIT!! It is everything that is right about college athletics!! I didn't know much about the new Boise St. wrestling coaches when they were hired last year so I gave Head Coach Mike Mendoza a call before he even moved here last year and welcomed him. In the past year, I've come to know him much better and have an incredible amount of respect for Coach Mendoza and his entire staff!! To put it simply, "they get it"!! They want to build a national caliber wrestling program but they are more concerned with turning out outstanding young men first and foremost.I know wrestling and I know good coaches. The new staff are outstanding coaches!!  They are teaching these young men all of the right things. Work ethic, honor, integrity, being a competitor, being good citizens. I've watched their coaches first hand many times when I stop by after work, and each and every day the end of their practice was emphasized the mantra of "being a good person while being a good competitor!!!! Although Boise State has said it is eliminating the wrestling program to make way for baseball, this shouldn't be a competition between baseball and wrestling.  There is no need to pit two great sports against each other. Baseball is a great sport. So is wrestling.   If you know me, have heard of me, have been a wrestler, know a wrestler, respect wrestling, please voice your opinion to let Curt Apsey and Bob Kustra at Boise State know that this not right!!   I urge Boise State President Bob Kustra, Athletic Director Curt Apsey, and the Idaho State Board of Education to reconsider this huge mistake.
