  1. That whole Brandon era was jam packed with high school phenoms who just could not put it together in college.
  2. Had Dake had to cut actually cut to 74kg that match could have gone different. Next time they wrestle ti will still be a tossup in my mind, but then again I see JB in the spot, not Dake.
  3. This is a really unfair advantage for Dake. He is getting younger and younger while Chimizo maybe close to 39 before they actually wrestle.
  4. Boy and the RattleSnake Story A little boy was walking down a path and he came across a rattlesnake. The rattlesnake was getting old. He asked, "Please little boy, can you take me to the top of the mountain? I hope to see the sunset one last time before I die." The little boy answered "No Mr. Rattlesnake. If I pick you up, you'll bite me and I'll die." The rattlesnake said, "No, I promise. I won't bite you. Just please take me up to the mountain." The little boy thought about it and finally picked up that rattlesnake and took it close to his chest and carried it up to the top of the mountain. They sat there and watched the sunset together. It was so beautiful. Then after sunset the rattlesnake turned to the little boy and asked, "Can I go home now? I am tired, and I am old." The little boy picked up the rattlesnake and again took it to his chest and held it tightly and safely. He came all the way down the mountain holding the snake carefully and took it to his home to give him some food and a place to sleep. The next day the rattlesnake turned to the boy and asked, "Please little boy, will you take me back to my home now? It is time for me to leave this world, and I would like to be at my home now." The little boy felt he had been safe all this time and the snake had kept his word, so he would take it home as asked. He carefully picked up the snake, took it close to his chest, and carried him back to the woods, to his home to die. Just before he laid the rattlesnake down, the rattlesnake turned and bit him in the chest. The little boy cried out and threw the snake upon the ground. "Mr. Snake, why did you do that? Now I will surely die!" The rattlesnake looked up at him and grinned, "You knew what I was when you picked me up."
  5. I agree the hybrid matches are kind of fun to watch, but so far have been skewed to oine sport or the other. What about a format where "all" the rules are allowed- especially the "ultimate" paths to victory. Obviously in wrestling the ultimate goal is a pin. In grappling it is some sort of submission. Why not leave those in? Want to beat a wrestler? Learn how to sprawl and defend a takedown, then work for your submissions while staying off your back. Want to beat a grappler? Learn how to defend their submissions while still doing your thing. Of course the wrestler could still choke the grappler and the grappler could still pin the wrestler. Maybe create a first one to three 'wins" format while scoring takedowns in case no one get there in the allotted time.
  6. 1. Um.... What? 2. Show me where I said offensive. I said "old timey" as in archaic or antique- a word my grandparents would use. Offensive? No, but kinda cringy and out of step.
  7. I absolutley listen, even to you. In your judgement of me above you are 100 percent wrong.
  8. Damn straight. Like many people I once believed I had all the answewrs, but the day I grew up is the day I leanred I didnt even know the questions yet.
  9. Many consider it an "old timey" word that goes back to the days of colonalism (French Vietnam, Dutch Indonesia, etc...). Again, if most Asians don't love the word and prefer it head to the archaic pile, why do a bunch of white people feel it OK to tell them, "Nope, its fine." How hard is it to just say Aisan and be respectful?
  10. Amazing how a bunch of white people believe it makes perfect legitimate sense to get together on the interwebs to tell black people the correct ways to define, experience, and react to racism. This includes what language to use, how to appropriately express discontent, and to empathetically apply what they see as flaws in logic (reverse racism) to opressed white people. Isnt this pretty much exactly racism? Good grief...
  11. Code word in a certain state's redneck coaching lexicon: "athletes." Example: "XXXXX High School has a bunch of athletes on their team. All you have to do is weather the first period and you will be fine." You can figure out what it means very quickly. The kids knew too. Shameful.
  12. I don't think you answer questions...bro. I will say you have absolutely demonstrated to everyone here your position. We get you. Cheers.
  13. Let me get this straight. You are saying my friend with leukemia is being scammed by COVID19, 100,000 dead Americans since January, and scientists/doctors?
  14. I'm just saying if you are going to get in here and mix it up, do better than laying on your belly and reaching back for someone's head. I'm still waiting on your ideas about courage and COVID19. My best friend is literally hiding in his basement while trying to ride out the pandemic. He knows a little bit about courage after spending two years Afghanistan. He is also just barely on the other side of leukemia...at least we all hope so. Maybe you could give him a pep talk about being brave?
