The Year Of The Dragon

January 23 is the day the Chinese celebrate their Lunar New Year and 2012 is the Year of The Dragon. A symbol of good fortune and sign of intense power, the Oriental Dragon is regarded as a divine beast. In Eastern philosophy, the Dragon is said to be a deliverer of good fortune and a master of authority. Who better to mark this special occasion than 1980s fan favorite Ricky "The Dragon" Steamboat? Here are some photos I found online of Ricky (real name Richard Henry Blood). If you're young and have no idea who he is, read his Wikipedia entry here

  1. I have forgotten how incredibly hot Ricky "The Dragon" Steamboat was. The first picture here is by far the best. I enjoyed watching him wrestle as a kid, plus, I always found him to be one the hottest hunks during this era.
