Title: World Medal matches--who's watching
Post by: Snackem on September 18, 2011, 12:35:36 PM
Who's watching the medal matches on ESPN3?  Predictions?  Can Burroughs pull it off and bring home the gold?

The most impressive thing was Burroughs getting 2 on that scramble.  What a stud!!!

Too bad we couldn't have unveiled Burroughs in London!  Hopefully he will build upon this.
War Burroughs!

Dlagnev loses in three on the ball grab.

That was a GREAT match!!!

The Burroughs match, Dlagnev's match was good as well, it would have been nice if Trevel would have won that ball grab though.

ball grab/coin flip is garbage, but what are you ever gonna do except not allow it to come into play I guess

I don't know why they couldn't just do a sudden death OT.

That could take hours as aggressive as some of those guys were.
