    krazzy got a reaction from dman115 in Worse than Flo?   
    Yeah I was looking up names in the Encyclopedia Brittanica before google came to town . Karelin or karlin, K-A-R-L-...
    Get to page- no entries. Well I had to wait for the update index book, a heavy tome to arrive the next year.
    I love the fact that I can span generations , from an abacus ( calculator) to a yellow toned CRT pc. Even the acronym CRT is beyond 
    obscure to most here. I used to buy a plane ticket at the travel office with a check, or I sent one in. Those days we flew Pan am or TWA, even PSA.
    Forget 24 hour photo. I had to wait a month to get the 36 shots I took with my Pentax SLR. I was hoping I loaded the cartridge correctly.
    I fantasized about those shots, were they as I imagined them to be? Did I , or could anything capture that sunset in Cancun? 
    We read books and magazines - not our phones. Life was static not flowing at 600 mph. I don't know what is better, if anything. Better or worse- it is fundamentally different.

    "could care less" is not considered to be incorrect grammar. We have techboys here not wrestlers.

    I don't think he's wearing a Team usa singlet. So it's highly suspect that he's
    "American".

    OTC=Over the counter? No you don't take a pill to be a great Greco wrestler. 
     
    Speaking of which whatever happened to the Greco/Romans?
     
    They have not been relevant since 1655. The modern manifestation of Greeks and Italians I mean

    Why is this joker named after a Turkish/ Ottoman type of person? 
    I bet he doesn't know what a "Bey" is.

    Or NBC Olympic Network if you have it.  On TV or can stream it with your TV log in.  Much better stream and camera work + John Smith commentary.  Everyday live for medal matches.

    krazzy reacted to Shiraz123 in Euro Tournament   
    Pretty surprising to see Akgul beat Petriashvili in the final here. Don't get me wrong I think Akgul is the better wrestler, but he looked very poor by his standards here. A close match with the Azerbaijani HW who he has destroyed multiple times in the past and another one with Russia's Kushkov. Going into today I though Petriashvili might beat him comfortably, I believe he teched his way into the finals. Akgul beats him 2-1 with a pushout off of Petriashvili's shot deciding the match. If he can still beat Petriashvili while seemingly out of form then it may get ugly for Petriashvili at worlds.

    Wow Coach you go back a ways, Kenan Simsek?
    It's so true, when you break bread and just talk with people you realize
    that you are the same despite the differences. I too was moved, when my father who was the consul general of Turkey in San Francisco and the rest of my family  was 
    invited to dinner by a very influential wealthy bay area Armenian. A person who lost his family in the Genocide. He lost his family yet invited a Turkish family!
    My father who was quite liberal, didn't tote the party line-he admitted to it.
    It was a memorable, sad, highly emotional night that ended in tears and hugs.

    USA, my country, the country I was born in.......why can't we do anything in Greco?
    This is beyond losing face. We placed dead last!
     
    Moldova and Chile placed.
     
    The coach needs to be fired! That we can be world class in freestyle and be chumps at greco makes no sense! None

    You're honorable. I have a reflexive attitude with respect to peoples opinions of Turks. I presume and assume.
    That's why I asked in a defensive posture/gesture.
     I wish more people were decent like you on every level. I like Greeks, Armenians, Serbs etc. I truly do.
    I even think the Armenian holocaust should be recognized by the government of Turkey. It's shameful that it isn't.
