  1. Yeah, some calls could have gone his way. However, none were egregious. If you are going to score it that way, you have to give Dabir more as well. Definitely a potential brutality point for that bush league after the whistle and off the mat td.
  2. Not sure how he was jobbed. Dabir hit a sweet move and handed him a big deficit. Dabir was smart and wrestled conservative. Brands resorted to a move he knew was dicey and the results were predictable.
  3. See the previous post. He said 9/10/99
  4. FIFY, WTF are you gonna do about it bruh?
  5. Dabir is as cool as the other side of the pillow. Achieved great things and overcame a lot to get there. For one, he is diabetic and that is why he never sported the 'Marines' logo on his singlet.
  6. I think books in this genre are often off base. Nevertheless, they are thought provoking and fun to read.
  7. Although I enjoyed the book, I convinced myself the Canadian junior hockey birth date stats are an anomaly.
  8. No doubt. All champions are Outliers and these three are a heckuva lot more than that.
  9. Depends on how old. One year, meh. Two years, not so meh. Maturity and time to get the hell out of dodge are tightly coupled. Once they are ready to leave HS, they're bored and at risk. I think holding back is counter productive on balance, but could care less if people do it. I never held back, but saw a mixed bag amongst the ones who did. Folks will always have their justifications. There is a book around called Outliers. It rambles on and on about Canadian hockey players being astonishingly more successful if born in the first quarter of the year. When I read it, Iowa was publishing birthdates on their team page and I checked them to see who was old and who was young. I was surprised to see more young than old, relative to starting college at 18. FWIW, John Smith, Carl and JB graduated HS at 17.
  10. Assuming Hall has Olympic aspirations, it will be interesting to see what he does. He says he can't make 74, but there is no way he is big enough for 86. I really like him. He should take up long distance running so he can make 74 and make a bunch of noise.
  11. He doesn't have a Duck Dynasty beard.
  12. 'We' being the freshman JV team or the varsity team?
  13. Kayla Miracle said something about Brands questioning whether people were in the HWC for the right reasons. Maybe the ladies expressed loyalty to Mark Perry and it is as simple as that.
  14. This assertion seems like a reach. He is great, but Imar proved he is the better. Zain Train would beat him based on superior positioning. Zahid? C'mon now. Joseph always looked like he was packing a little extra, but he missed weight at 157 and 165.
  15. Carl does indeed cross his Ts and dot his Is
  16. Tech tip: add '?t=X'. To end of a YouTube url and it will start X seconds into the video. For the video above, https://youtu.be/dqXpvGMIVt8 becomes https://youtu.be/dqXpvGMIVt8?t=189 And the video will start at 3:09
  17. She is a delight! It's late, but I'll get right on this translation tomorrow. Happy to help. One fun fact - the antagonist was a former wrestler who was close, but never quite made the junior national team back home. His many failures gave him a lot of attitude. He is in a few background scenes of the movie 'Boys with Broken Ears'. The writing was on the wall at that point and he was the one doing the laundry. Upon his return to Iran after that trip, he had to do a small amount of time in a detention center because they caught him putting capsaicin powder in the jocks of the real wrestlers.
  18. There is a fried chicken chain in Iran. It is super spicy. Roughly trsnslated it means 'This ain't your mama' s chicken'. The owner is a former wrestler and current benefactor. That is their logo. The champions of the Takhti Cup dine at the original restaurant in Tehran every year. It is a big honor. Jordan Burroughs is the only American to eat that meal. He was a big hit with the locals and they still have his autographed picture on the wall.
  19. The singlets we can do. But the marines proper won't be getting by Jads.
  20. A business needs creativity. Chocolate covered sour punch morsels are my wheelhouse!
  21. LOL WHOA, WHOA, WHOA! Why am I not copied on this?
  22. Man, I wish I hadn't said I was an Iranian wrestler. This would have been epic.
