  1. FYI, Donald Trump's twitter is not a good tool for English learners.
  2. I thought the same thing about his ability to cook a full course meal after seeing how he puts away the dishes.
  3. I am thinking VakAttack can graduate his avatar to Gilman's always the bridesmaid and never the bride pic.
  4. They were too busy hyping the next big event for one of their new verticals.
  5. And if Metcalf wouldn't have botched Caldwell's landing in 2009 we could have possibly seen some cool celebrations these past 8 years.
  6. Well, waiting to get into the arena for the first session on Thursday was a bit of a culture shock. The demographics of the crowd looked similar to that of a Trump rally.
  7. My biggest beef with ANY wrestling broadcast is the commentary. That being I just don't like it. It does absolutely nothing for me. My hope is that ESPN, NBC Sports and other broadcasters provide us with a mute commentary option that still allows for the audio of the crowd and matside noises to be heard. This was an option for the Rio Olympics and I thought it was a great feature.
  8. Yeah, the talent in the PSU wrestling room and the coaching staff were never going to help him make it to the next level.
  9. I have a better idea... switch to freestyle.
  10. Apparently Jadidi got lost on his way to the St. Louis Comic Con.
  11. Yes I despise folkstyle, mostly for ruining our country's freestyle talent. I had some Southwest vouchers that were about to expire and figured why not go. Who knows 64 years from now you might see me standing up when the announcer asks who has been to 65 NCAA finals. I shouldn't be hard to find, the wrinkly dude wearing assless chaps.
  12. Sorry most white people look the same to me.
  13. Until Nolf captures two Spanish Grand Prix titles at two different weights there is no point in comparing them.
  14. I would be more upbeat if our guys who performed well at Cadet and Junior World's focused solely on freestyle.
  15. Just got back from St. Louis and have decided the winners of this year's awards. Feel free to add to them if you want. Holy Sh!t That Just Happened Award - Vincenzo Joseph (165 lbs. Penn State) I was expecting him to AA, but WOW did this young man exceed expectations. Sexiest Look for Team Pictures Award - Newton Smercheck (285 lbs. Central Michigan) Its a shame he cut those golden locks. Honorable Mention goes to Bo Nickal (184 lbs. Penn State) I still don't understand why college wrestlers can't compete with full beards. Always the Bridesmaid and Never the Bride Award - Thomas Gilman (125 lbs. Iowa) This was a close race and a strong argument can be made for Joey Dance. In the end it was witnessing the sheer disbelief on the faces of the Hawkeye faithful in attendance at Scottrade that really put Villain Gilman as this year's favorite for the award. How Low Can You Go Award - University of Tennessee at Chattanooga (-0.5 team score) Go Mocs.... 'nuff said Championship Celebration Award - Cory Clark tossing Tom Brands I have no idea if this was planned by Tom as a way to get more mainstream attention for wrestling, but I have no problem with it.
  16. I dig your enthusiasm, but you are a wee bit optimistic. I might get there once our men's freestyle wins 4+ medals at a World Championships.
  17. Flo pays ESPN. My assumption is its a hefty fee. They add their own commentary.
  18. ....And they had the largest crowd to ever view the team championship award ceremony both in person and online. Period!
  19. Synder has been walking around Scottrade in his Austin 3:16 t-shirt this morning. The man looks ready or high on opiods.
  20. At least they have appropriately matching warmups.
  21. Its ok to say retarded. PC culture is destroying our country.
  22. I was really hoping that USA Wrestling would have taken him to this year's freestyle World Cup in Iran and forget to bring him back.
