  1. Joined U.S. Army on the buddy plan/ bodyguard status.
  2. Wrong. There is only ONE state and not "states". DF is a "State Champion" not a "States Champion." Nobody is a "Four-Time Big TENS Champ" they are a "4-Time Big Ten Champ". Randy Lewis is an Olympic Champ...not an "Olympics Champ." Only cheerleaders call it 'states'.
  3. (Can't believe I missed this DF post, had to find it on page 9.) ***** glorious!
  4. WOW! Lot of action in the first minute...Rambodidi tries a DeSanto off the whistle-cartwheel to kimura! Ref, Fred Ambrose (out of retirement) calls the illegal hold penalty. Injury time-out for the Easterjidi...he may not continue, he told Ambrose that he was waiting to see if Bobby Douglas would come down for a chat. 1-0 Goblin leads. Spladle didn't like the call and ran out on the mat to maim Ambrose: Spladle DQ'd from this event.
  5. ...who would prevail in this Easter matchup? Easter Goblin-idi or Jad Rambodidi
  6. (seems appropriate to re-post this famous true story of a legend) In 1966, a high school sophomore named Siddidi Finch, an adopted Iranian-born foster child from Oak Park, Illinois, whose parents died in a plane crash near Nepal, entered the Tbilisi tournament in Georgia and won... defeating 5-time world champ Ali Aliyev. He was denied the championship' however, when it was discovered he did not meet the minimum age requirement of 18 years. He never wrestled in high school folk style matches and only pursued freestyle. The majority of his training during his teen years occurred in Japan, where he was coached by the father of Yojiro Uetake Obata, and accompanied the elder Uetake on many trips to Tibet to learn yogic mastery of mind-body under the great poet-saint Lama Milaraspa. The elder Uetake when asked about the wrestling skills of the teenage Finch, stated: "Siddidi has taught my son, Yojiro, many skills." He did however, after graduating high school, walk on at Portland State university, where he twice defeated Rick Sanders in wrestle offs, but was denied a starting spot in the line up because of "academic performance"... The truth is, Finch rarely attended classes, other than to take exams, and in fact his GPA was a 4.0, but the University staff frowned on his absences from the classroom. After the debacle at Portland State, Finch decided not to pursue a wrestling career, instead choosing to play the French horn or golf or something. What if.... Imagine how great he would have been. Below is the only known photo of Finch, sparring with Yojo, taken by his father:
  7. FADZ!! You're back! Good to see. 41 NCAAs, wow...I'm jealous. Let me ask you a question (off topic, but who cares)....you were there, right next to the mat, and took this photo: WAS HENDRICKS PINNED OR NOT?
  8. karl 5 years Dark Places ryan- 15 years
  10. Forum legend...his triceps are as big as Meredith's
  11. ok quitter. But this is the time of year that during the "trivial" "twaddle," the morel mushrooms of the forum spring up, the more imaginative/creative folk who carry the forum's very survival upon Their shoulders..
  12. It is impossible to be every medal round winner.
  13. Scribe, BTF, I rarely play this card, but you are both gentlemen and scholars, so...
  14. A 3RD Aliverti is amazing, must be the remarkable sangfroid he displayed in the Meredith/Yianni final...while asking, "How do you emotionally feel at this moment in the finals wrestling with no triceps?"
  15. "Been doin' that move since I was six...no need to freak out or anything." (pretty sure you could slide a challenge block under that right shoulder/scapula)
