  1. https://taskandpurpose.com/news/marine-corps-tokyo-olympics-wrestling/ nice to have a jarhead to root for
  2. So Iowa State doesn't require reading as an admission prerequisite?
  3. Thanks. A 10 fold difference between NLWC wrestler as opposed to J'Den fan support is quite a compliment to NWLC fans everywhere
  4. In this day and age of social media you would think that Olympic organizations would have a system allowing athletes to subscribe to text alerts - "1 hour until weigh in fattie", "2 hours until your qualifier princess", " 3 days until your court appeal Yianni" , "5 minutes - start warming up your whining voice Dake" - they could be personalized Or at least go old school and give everyone a beeper and and have watchers pushout "hey dumb-$hit where are you notifications" critical notification
  5. the only asterisk will be by J'Den's name not the team. It is the dumb-a$$ mistake asterisk. By no means the first . A cautionary tale below for those not old enough to remember - During the 1972 Olympics in Munich, the American sprinters Eddie Hart, Rey Robinson and Robert Taylor were said to be watching what they thought was a television rerun of 100-meter qualifiers when they realized it was the live quarterfinal races going on without them. Hart and Robinson had tied the world record that year, but only Taylor made it to the starting line. He went on to finish second in the final to the Soviet Union’s Valery Borzov. The Americans’ coach, Stan Wright, said he had been given an outdated schedule. And the offenders were not awarded a special race to qualify. An aside - I'd like to be the first to note that J'Den liquifies assets every time he steps on the mat.
  6. Thanks - I can't tell you what a relief it is knowing that now
  7. I think Nolf at 79 would have a chance against both JB and Dake. They both would be in their 90's by then no?
  8. JB set the tone for the USA team for many years - confident but respectful and gracious in victory - and I think others followed his lead. Don't know what team personality will emerge without JB's leadership, I hope somebody similar steps up but who will that be?
  9. What bracket was COVID in? Took out some good wrestlers and I wanted to see him in action.
  10. JB just checked out of the Olympic Hotel
  11. when you have great ears tight hair cuts are a fashion coup
  12. aj ferrari to get a head start on their WWE routines
  13. When two wrestlers from the same club meet in the finals the room is a bit too good ..... probably not a good situation for either wrestler. I it good for the USA team? Would RTCs would be better if they could only send one wrestler in every weight?
  14. They need to interrogate Cox under a bright light and see if he sweats
