Left My Wallet: Duke 'The Dumpster' Droese

It's a blast from the past as "Left My Wallet" returns for some football and teaching talk with former WWF wrestler Duke "the Dumpster" Droese!

Duke is a lifelong L.A./Oakland Raiders fan and we go in depth about his fandom and the current state of the silver and black. We talk his favorite players as a kid, his love of Bo Jackson, playing Tecmo Bowl with Bo, failed draft picks, and why the team is in its current and long standing losing situation.

We also delve into Duke's time as a student at the University of Miami during the heyday of Hurricanes football. We discuss the powerhouse teams they had in the 80s and 90s, what it was like on campus, some of the all-time greats that came from the "U", and much more.

Finally, we delve into a topic that is very personal to each of us: teaching. Duke and I are both special needs teachers and we go into what led us to pursue teaching, the trials and tribulations of being an educator and what makes it all worth it.

It's a very fun and unique episode with a little bit of sports talk and what it's like to work with kids as a classroom teacher from the perspective of two pro wrestlers.
