    That dumpster fire career was very entertaining. Sad to see the team disappear.

    @TexasRaceLady sorry if another thread of this has already been created...didn't see one and figured it was more note-worthy than it being put in the CWTS 2017 Silly Season thread.

    Don't you have to have a viable career to retire from it?

    It would be like me announcing I'm not running for president in 2020.

    Yeah I agree that the word "retiring" needs to be restricted a bit.

    Don't you have to have finished high school to take college courses?

    "Townley also got engaged to girlfriend Laura Bird in the autumn of 2016 and his settling down includes not competing in NASCAR."

    Welp, time for a divorce before the wedding even happens!

    At least we'll forever have the Spencer Gallagher brawl footage to help us sleep at night.

    JWT to WWE.

    I remember a major in the National Guard who had 18 years of service. You can retire at 20 years, which makes you eligible for retirement pay at age 59.5. For whatever reason, his new bride didn't like him playing soldier and insisted he get out. 18 years down the crapper; probably lost him about $750 a month or better down the road. I guess we know who wears the fire suit in that family, and JWT's.
