  1. Are they going to fill stadiums? Surely not???
  2. Mike did lob him nothing but perfectly placed softballs answered with nothing but cliche and lame soundbites. Z wasn't pushed or challenged for even a second.
  3. In light of what we know about false convictions, corruption, polictial agendas, disinformation, and econoimic disparity, it is sickening and barbaric that any nation continues with executions/capital punishment... oh...wait a minute... 'Murica! Never mind.
  4. That whole Brandon era was jam packed with high school phenoms who just could not put it together in college.
  5. 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.
  6. This is a really unfair advantage for Dake. He is getting younger and younger while Chimizo maybe close to 39 before they actually wrestle.
  7. 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."
  8. 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.
  9. 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.
  10. I absolutley listen, even to you. In your judgement of me above you are 100 percent wrong.
  11. 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.
  12. 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?
  13. 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...
  14. 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.
  15. I don't think you answer questions...bro. I will say you have absolutely demonstrated to everyone here your position. We get you. Cheers.
  16. 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?
  17. 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?
  18. I know this is an internet message board, but If you are going to insult someone's intelligence, try to use correct spelling, punctuation, sentence structure, and capitalization. Having four errors in one small sentence does not drive home your point. Anyway, please elaborate on how one's level of courage negates the rules and trends of microbiology and virus behavior.
  19. Good point- forgot all about barber surgery, bloodletting, and leeches, but I think that was only 1500s to 1700s. Veggie Lasagna in all his wisdom gave us "a few hundred thousand years" of thriving humanity before modern medicine. Actually I would have been dead several times over by now. The wrestling transferred staph infection that trashed me in college probably would have done it too.
  20. My appendix would have taken me out at nine. Stoopid modern medicine.
  21. I was going to respond and look at your links as I am always happy to consider, but then I saw: "We survived and thrived for hundreds of thousands of years without vaccines. Some of us have faith in the natural order of things..." ...so yeah. Im good. Peace.
  22. Jeeze. My bad. I didnt realize the semantics of stop and slow matter- especially in an area like medicine when literally almost nothing is 100 percent. A mask may slow the rate in which I spread by the virus a great deal, but apparently that is not good enough if my mask does not stop it completely? Helmets don't stop head injuries. Seat belts don't stop car accident fatalities. Vaccines don't eradicate disease. The list goes on and on, but using your logic why even bother? Is that correct?
  23. No. Just no. From the freakin' Mayo Clinic: https://www.mayoclinic.org/diseases-conditions/coronavirus/in-depth/coronavirus-mask/art-20485449
  24. In a culture that has accepted mass shootings, high school shootings, and even toddler daycare shootings as the unfortunate price of freedom, why is anyone surprised that a few hundred-thousand dead old and frail people are considered the unfortunate byproducts an active social life and a somewhat satisfactory economy? World War II numbers of casualities seem to be more acceptable than being bored at home and not being able to attend a dual meet. Getting back to work is one thing... Completely and totally open... optional masks...life as it was... that is a completely different animal.
